Weighing in at just 20 oz., the new, tough-as-nails 7x30 Commander XPs is packed full of features. Like its larger counterpart, the new 7x30 offers the innovative Steiner XP optics that provide the highest levels of daytime haze-cutting contrast and nighttime performance. They also feature Steiner's NANO lens coating that repels water and moisture from the lenses, leaving them crystal clear for viewing, even in the wettest situations. The 7x30 Commander XP also has a generous field of view of 392 feet @ 1,000 yards.

"The Commander has always been one of Steiner's most popular marine binoculars," stated Rob Siemers, general manager. "Now we can offer this spectacular binocular in a more compact model, making it the ideal binocular for cruising, sailing, sport fishing or recreational boating."

The 7x30 Commander XP with Compass is equipped with a ranging reticle, and it's also illuminated for convenient nighttime navigation. Each Commander XP is hand-built to be mil-spec waterproof and shock resistant. The NBR rubber coating is tough and withstands the punishing elements of UV rays, chemicals and saltwater. Each comes with a standard binocular strap as well as an orange flotation strap. 

This new compact marine binocular will be available at retailers nationwide this spring.  Suggested retail price for the 7x30 Commander XP is $549, and the 7x30 Commander XP with compass is $699. Both come with the Steiner 30-Year Limited Warranty.

Headquartered in Germany, Steiner has been widely acknowledged as a world leader in the manufacturing of high quality optics since 1947. In addition to the outdoor, hunting and marine markets, Steiner provides products to military and law enforcement worldwide. Allied forces around the world—including the U.S. Army and countless law enforcement agencies—have made Steiner their binocular of choice.
