Military Marine 8x30 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Overdue After using and admiring the Steiner binos in the US Army; I wanted a pair of my own. Hunting Antelope and Mule Deer, and borrowing my buddies to spot game reminded me how much I wanted a set, and decided to buy a pair of my own. I opted for the Military-Marine 8x30 model because it was a good compromise between power, brightness and portability. I'm very happy with my choice. They will be a constant companion for camping, hunting and fishing. My friends and family that check them; out are all impressed with the brightness and clarity. Favorite feature is the "set it and forget it" focus. Thank you Steiner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from durable and great optics We bought the 8X30 military/Marine 10 years ago for our ranch and nature viewing. They are still going strong and get used almost daily year round. These binoculars get carried around on a Quad as we check cattle over open rangeland, which can be quite rough. The optics are still in perfect shape. We decided to get another 8X30 to have if we go on vacation while our family has the 10 year old set to use on the ranch. Other people have tried them and bought their own 8X30.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, only because of the warranty. I've had these bino's for a few months now, using them for both hunting and boating. I love the compact size and overall quality of them. However one day of light rain fogged up one side of the bino. I've sent them back for repair, hopefully I don't have anymore issues with them after this because before they fogged up they were great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8x30 Military and Marine I bought a set twenty years ago and they have served me well. The only negative I can think of is that the strap that comes/came on them is horrible…too thin for wearing all day on a hunt. Optics are great and l love knowing they are rugged, shock proof, and waterproof. There are times I wish they had more magnification, especially as we all have been addicted to higher magnification riflescopes, but the quality of the lenses make up for that. Great binocs, and I am sure they are going to outlast me, and serve my son well after I can no longer hunt. I endorse them absolutely and with no reservations. (The strap was a $10 fix, and now it gets five stars in every category.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good during day only GREAT viewing during the day. HORRIBLE at night if there is more than one light source. Many many halos and the factory warranty folks say its normal. Yuck. So if your using them during the day. Check Low light conditions on a hunting trip, Check using them for surveillance ops or anywhere that has more than one light source in the field of view....NO WAY, do not buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, rugged glass Friend of mine has had this exact model for nearly a decade and has been invaluable to him, bought it on his recommendation. I could not be happier. These are lightweight with amazing glass quality. You can quickly glass large areas without having to mess with focus or magnification changes. For Elk hunting in the Uintas you are going to be hard pressed to find better binos for the price. For a Porro prism binocular this is your guy; short of needing higher magnification or additional features such as integrated range finder or compass.

Is the “Marine - 8x30” in blue the same as the 2033 “Military / Marine”? Thanks 

Asked by: EWD1
No, the Marin and Military lines are different. The Marin line will have coatings more suited to a maritime environment.

I thought these were made in Germany, but when I received them the box had a giant sticker on it that said, "Made in Vietnam." So where are they made? Germany or Vietnam?

Asked by: bob27
None of our products are made in Vietnam. They all come from Germany. It is possible you received knock-offs. Please send us an email at

I have a pair of the 8x30 Navigator binos. The rubber cover has become so soft and sticky that they are almost unusable. The cover literally comes off on whatever surface it touches. Is this under the lifetime warrantee?
