They seem to be much more expensive than the Monarchs, however I have not seen too much hype about them.
Are they worth the price? what are the advantages of the Rainguard vs the standard Nikon Monarchs?
I'd like 8 or 10x42, they will be used for hunting in the West and in very humid climates abroad.
I know that you get what you pay for, and that neither is a Leica or Swaro, but if possible which one should I pick?
Is there anything else on the 250-300$ price range that I should look at?

The only significant difference with the Infinity is the open body design, aka the Swarovski EL, but that may or may not be an advantage, depending on your preferences for handling. That body desing costs more, hence the higher price.
No, I do not regard the rainguard as significant enough of a feature to base a buying decision. Doesn't hurt, but really doesn't make the binocular that much more useable unless you plan to be using it in the rain.
