Diamondback® Classic 8x28 Roof Prism Binocular

With the compact 8x28 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 Diamondback doesn't trade performance for small size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very clear I've really come to respect vortex and their products. These Diamondbacks are very crystal clear. They are great for brush spotting and closer range spotting and will out perform more powerful binoculars of lesser brands with their clarity. No fog or weird colors just clear view. Someday I hope to upgrade to a more powerful vortex binocular.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact binoculars I purchased these binoculars from Cabelas while they were on sale, and have to say that I am very impressed. These binoculars produce sharp and clear images while being small enough to carry around in a blind bag. I primarily hunt waterfowl and look forward to finally having quality binoculars to use while scouting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent products Using my Diamondback for hunting and find it very well build and sturdy. A real quality product for a price that is half of the same comparable product. Therefore i ordered a 6.5-20x50 yesterday and looking forward to using it for many years. /John

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Great product I use for everything outdoors. I own the Diamondback series scope for my favorite bolt action rifle and the Diamondback series has impressed me and I am forever a Vortex customer. Great products.

Please, will you tell what number on the JIS Scale these rate?

Asked by: Ezramon
The binoculars are rated IPX 7, which is close to JIS 7.
