I'd like to get a pair of binos to use out on the Yukon. There are plenty of times when I think I see something in the distance and it turns out to be a dark stump, dead bush, or root wad. When I go out in the boat it's really hard on all my gear, and it really takes a beating. Everything gets thrown around, mud and dirt everywhere, sand, muddy river water, and rain.
I'm not looking to get the nicest binos in the world, just something that is functional. I was thinking of Vortex Diamindback 10x50. Seems like a good combination of weight vs size. Or should I just go with a cheap 10x42?
