These binos come with Rainguard HD. This is a water repellant coating on all your lenses. Meaning that they can be used in light rain, snow, and general wet conditions. The moisture on your lenses beads up letting you still get a clear view. They're fog free too. Try breathing on them. Your lenses will take some time to clear up but it will be faster than with most binoculars.

If you dropped them in muddy water or any murky stuff, fear not. They're waterproof so you can just clean them with some running water and move on. Also, they come with a soft cleaning cloth for ease while cleaning.
Lastly, the protective covers for the objective lens will make sure that no dust or scratching will damage your lenses.
