City Style: The Eyes Have It

Zero in on a pair of first-rate binoculars: high tech, sleek, and all-weather ready.

Whatever you’re into surveying—birds, constellations, neighbors—the latest waterproof binoculars from Canon deliver just the eyeful you’re looking for. Image-stabilizing technology guarantees a wobble-free outlook, while the large lens size and 4.2-millimeter exit-pupil diameter (the feature that allows light to reach your eye) provide clear views from even the most shadowy locales. Plus, the moisture-repelling coating means there’s no risk of fogging up when things get interesting. Rachel Baker
