Hello. My name is Brianna and I am from the state of Michigan. My favorite binoculars are the Nikon brand ones. As I live in Michigan near the woods, I like to use the binoculars primarily for nature watching.
The model I have, The Nikon18x70IF WP WF, are built specifically for this use. I’ve used them outside in the rain many times and they were surprisingly durable. They are apparently waterproof for approximately 5 minutes. They are also fog proof, which comes in handy during morning nature watching.
The only thing I do not like about these binoculars is the awkward shape of them. It is on occasion difficult to hold and can cause problems.
However, you have the ability to attach the binoculars to a tripod which makes for easier viewing and holding. In the past, I have also used these binoculars during a college football game when I had bad seats in the stadium. The focus was clear and it made it much easier to view the game without having to look at the big screen.
All in all I highly recommend investing in a good pair of binoculars. You never know when you are going to need them at any events. I will continue to use my binoculars at sporting events, and in the comfort of my own home especially during the fall months when more animals are outside.
The Nikon binoculars have made it easier for me to see things clearly from a long distance and it will surely work for you.
