Are these binoculars waterproof/fogproof?

I have seen claims from sellers on EBay stating these binoculars are waterproof/fogproof. Is this true?

    Thank you very much. I purchased the binoculars on EBay with the seller claiming the model I requested info from FixYa on were waterproof/fogproof.

    I have now initiated an exchange for the waterproof/fogproof model listed in the Nikon link.

    The seller admits they were mistaken to claim this.



    Thanks again

Goodmorning .I got Jersey and its way to big what do or can i do Thanks


Hi there!
First, you can contact the seller and ask the seller if they can exchange it for a smaller size or a refund. If it's not as described in the listing, then you can file for the item not as described case that way, the seller will be notified about it. If the seller will not work things out with you, then you can escalate the case into a claim then eBay will give you the steps on how to return the address to the seller (although most of the time buyer will shoulder the return shipping as stated in their eBay buyer protection program, duh!) Just send back the item if you will see the return address of the seller in the case and don't click the close this case link if you haven't received the refund yet.
In returning the item, make sure that you will purchase tracking because it will be the one that eBay will use to issue the refund. Once it shows "delivered" then eBay will get the payment from the seller's recoupment payment method on file, if eBay can't get anything from it then eBay will shoulder the amount and will issue you refund.
Hope this helps! Please check my tips and tricks on how to file the cases. Thanks!

Received items purchased through ebay broken, how do I proceed?


Hi
Notify the seller about the broken items. Between you and the seller you'll need to determine if the items were broken by the shipper. If so, the seller will file a claim for the broken items. It's up to the seller whether he refunds you prior to the claim being approved. I usually refund as soon as possible. If the seller is unresponsive and/or he did not purchase shipping insurance then you'll nee to file a claim with eBay's New Buyer Assurance. Good luck

I have condensation/moisture in one of the two lenses of my Nikon Action 7x15x35 binoculars


Nikon Action binoculars are not meant to be 'waterproof'. They give the specification to the Chinese factories to construct the bincular to the retail price point. The higher the cost the more features. Water can damage the inside of a binocular as the contaminants in water can cause fungus to grow. Once that happens the glass lenses or prisms are damaged.

You can try to dry them near a warm air source such as blow heater on warm not hot over a period of time. This will help evaporate the moisture. It will not help if fungal bacteria has started to form.

Depending on the use that caused the influx of moisture you may have a warranty claim.
