Smaller waterproof bino

I just realized I am moving to Kentucky, and the only water proof binoculars I have are both 10x

I have no smaller binos, in the 7x 35 range that are waterproof

Can anyone recommend an affordable (okay cheaper) pair to do me for the first winter?

I noticed Bushnell has a huge selection, but I do not have a clue where to start with them.

I have a pair of Bushnell compact 8x21 binoculars that are rubber coated. I don't know exactly how water-proof they are. I have been using them for years in all kinds of weather and have never had any problems with them. I have never had them fog up. I really like the size too - they really are compact, especially when compared to my 7x35s and 10x50s. Out of the carrying case they will fit in your shirt pocket.
