Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Optics I bought these a year ago on advice from a friend. I'd only owned tasco/Bushnell cheaper binos before. I took the plunge and the difference was night and day. I can't believe I had gone this long without a pair. They were crystal clear, never fogged up. Not to mention the world class warranty is worth it itself. Unfortunately some scum bag stole my truck and my optics were in it. Apparently thieves have good taste in binos too asmi recovered the truck but not binos. I just recently bought a replacement pair for the upcoming hunts. I'll never own anything other than Vortex glass. Up next is a spotter and rifle scope. You won't be disappointed in their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am a Vortex customer for life I bought a pair of the Crossfire 10x42 binoculars a few years ago and used them all of the time until one of the diopter's threads stripped. This was almost certainly because of rough handling and not a product issue. I was going to buy a new pair but decided to test the Vortex warranty. I sent them in a few weeks ago and just received a package from Vortex. The note indicated the item could not be repaired and the model was no longer available so they provided me with a brand new, in the box, replacement. Awesome. Any future optics purchases will be Vortex. Period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I won't go outdoors without them...always on the lookout! I am a first year hunter who is 40 years old. I have been a carpenter for just under 20 years and have learned the value of having dependable tools. Vortex fits the bill to a T. Easy to focus, comfortable to hold and crystal clear vision. I thought I would use them only on the hunt but I have kept them in my vehicle to always be on the lookout for game. They enhanced my hunting experience more than I have fully comprehended due to my lack of years hunting. A great product backed by a great company that promises to stand behind their product. I am Vortex for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very clear I purchased this product a few years ago, I was tired of cheap binos that were hard to focus etc. I made the decision that I was going to buy a better product, and figured how much I could afford to spend. We went into Cabela's and the sales person suggested the Vortex Crossfire. At that point I had never heard of Vortex, but I think I will never change to another brand. In fact, when I replaced my rifle scope I also purchased a Vortex, for me and for my wife. Great, Solid product on all three counts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would definitely buy this product again! I have a 12 and 13 year old daughter who each hunts with me. I was looking for a pair of "lower priced" binoculars for each of them. I decided on the Crossfire 10x42 so i bought two pair.. I have several pair of "higher priced" glasses that i use for hunting. I couldn't believe the clarity when comparing the Crossfires to the binos i was using. Unfortunately, i took one of the pair and made it mine, haha. I absolutely love those glasses and can't wait to get another set of vortex for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best friend for bow hunting!! I've had 3 different brands of bino's over about the last 6 years and the lenses came loose in one set , the focus adjustment was really slow in all the others I had and the clarity just wasn't up to par and then I got ahold of the crossfire 2 and even though not HD they are amazing with clarity and the focus adjustment is super quick which you really need when hunting the woods having to focus quickly as deer move through, and the best part Vortex are made in my home state!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Glass you can get for the $$$!!! I use these almost every day and have loved them from day 1. You really can't even tell much difference in them from the HDs for the money difference. My 1st pair fell off the dash and broke the eye piece. (I'm hard on equipment) Called vortex and sent them in on a Friday Told them I had an elk hunt the next weekend. By Wednesday there were a brand new pair sitting on my doorstep. Absoulutely the best warranty and customer service you can get. VORTEX FOR LIFE!!!

What is the diameter of the eyepiece on the crossfire 10x42? If I were to make an adaptor to mount my iPhone, what is the outside diameter of the piece that I need to adapt to?
Asked by: Craig
The eyecup measures 43.4 mm at its widest point. If you did not want to make your own adapter, www.phoneskope.com makes some very nice phone adapters.

Can you please tell me the difference between the Crossfire II and the Crossfire? 
Asked by: Wanga
The Crossfire II has an updated look and newer optical system which performs better than the original Crossfire. The original is not a bad choice by any means, but the new model was able to get a little more optical performance at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Binos I hunt in NC and have honestly never used binoculars because typically I cannot see past thirty yards due to terrain. After hunting with a friend from Arizona a bit who uses binoculars for everything I had to pic me up a pair. Good thing I did because I for once hunted a lot of varied terrain and cut overs in 2016. These binoculars were perfect for me when accounting for price, quality, and clarity. I take them everywhere now and throughly enjoy using them.
