Just what I use Rob but there have been occasions, Newbury springs to mind, where I was ankle deep in mud & soaked through but noticably steaming as well ,no glass will resist that. I even put my specs away as they were achieving bugger all. Mid range shots were still achievable with hold over on X10 even though I had to be told where to point the muzzle!
