Diamondback® Classic 10x28 Roof Prism Binocular

With the compact 10x28 Diamondback®, small size doesn't mean small performance! Like its namesake, the Diamondback rattlesnake, this pocket roof prism binocular packs a lot of wallop into a slender package. Featuring fully multi-coated optics, phase correction coatings, argon gas purging, and a unique checkered rubber armoring, the compact Diamondbacks don't trade performance for small size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I bought a pair of 10X28 Diamondback binoculars because I wanted something that would fit in the console of my truck yet reach out there and tell me what's going on across the field. These bino's do that job very well and if I want to take them hunting, they take up less space and are light enough to carry either around my neck or in my pack. Love em', they're great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pocket binoculars I use these lil guys for hunting the river bottoms in MT for white tails, they are compact, clear and easy to hold which is a must for getting a quick glimpse of a deer in the thick vegetation. When they are attached to a shoulder harness they are very discreet and not at all cumbersome when you are sneaking within range of your target.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the tree stand! I carry these with me to the tree stand for whitetail bow hunting. Small and compact, these are perfect for getting eyes on approaching deer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great glass. I bought these for my wife due to the light weight and smaller size. They have excellent glass and are very clear in all light of day. The harness ring on the side broke off from the binoculars the first time she got to take them out and use them. I know Vortex will warranty them without question but now we have to send them in when we need them the most. Price and quality of the glass in this optic almost makes it worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would definitely recommend these. I bought these for my elk hunt this year. They worked great very durable. Had zero fogging issues. Just wish they could add a rangefinder in the same frame.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my favorite I bought these 10x28 binos for hunting a little more than a year ago. I tend to pack in so I wanted something not too heavy but still decent quality. I enjoy the size, quality is lacking though. First, the eye cups are constantly falling off. Twice now they have come off in the brush and I've been stuck with unusable optics. Vortex did send me new ones each time but that didn't help me during season. I have also struggled with getting them focused. I'll scan a clear cut and think things are good, but at 500 yrds or more horns are hard to get focused on. These are also not great performers in low light. Last issue is that the eye relief is too small. If I put the eye ups around my eyes to seal out light and make them steadier to hold, there are large black spots. In order to get a full picture I have to hold the eye piece just below my eyebrow, only touching on the top edge. Makes the binos hard to steady and let's lots of light in. I'm always needing to use my hat to block the sun from blinding out the picture. I am a fan of Vortex and their warranty, but these Diamondbacks aren't all they are cracked up to be. I've seen lots of good reviews for these but I can't agree. Vortex is awesome, Diamondback 10x28 binoculars are not up to snuff.

The left eye piece rotates to extend or retract the rubber eye piece. The right eye can be individually focous with the + - ring but twisting the right rubber eye piece does not move the eyepiece out or in like left one does. I focus the left eye with the barrel screw and then the right by using the + - ring. The left eye piece can be raised or lowered by twisting but the right eye piece does not move in the same way. Both eye piece caps have come unglued and can be easily removed and replaced. Both the left and right eye mechanisms have the same twist mechanism but the right one is immobile and will not move between the three positions as the left one does. This leaves the eye pieces at different lengths unless the left one is adjusted to matMch the stuck right one. Darcy
