Thread: Binoculars and Scopes in the Rain

    Binoculars and Scopes in the Rain

    How do you guys find your optics fair in the rain?

    I find my Vortex bino's become pretty useless in a heavy downpour.

    I'm just wondering if higher end optics have better performance when wet as well?

    You can always clean your lenses and put a hydroscopic wipe on them.

    Daywalker,

    You say "steam up". Does this mean you keep them inside a pocket?

    Need to dange outside to maintain temperature equilibrium. All the moisture should then do is bead and run off the lenses.

    I use my spare pair in the wet as the rain will degrade theimage of the best bins, also I don’t mind wiping the cheap pair to removerain drops if I have to with a tissue, where I am a little more careful withthe expensive bins.

    Daywalker,

    Then you need to address the coating on your lenses. They should only bead and you should then shake and ignore. Fogging on the outside, or do you mean a fine coating of moisture? To me, fogging is an internal thing.
