Do my binoculars need to be waterproof?

Because binoculars are used in all kinds of weather and climates, make sure you get a pair that are waterproof if you plan to be around water, high humidity, or rain. Today most binoculars over $200 are waterproof, so if you're looking at less expensive ones, make sure you check specifications for this feature. Should a waterproof binocular fail and become compromised, any repair is typically covered under the manufacturer's warranty. This is not true for non-waterproof binoculars.
