Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT VALUE Awesome set of affordable binos. These are the best binoculars I have ever bought. I dont have a need for a high dollar set of binos as Im not glassing for animals all day at long distances. I use these as general purpose. For hunting they have a wide field of view, great light gathering and plenty clear. I use them to I.D shooter deer in heavy woods in the South East (50-200yd). I also use them hiking or for anything outdoors to enjoy nature. They are amazing for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strongly recommend the Diamondback 8x28 binocular! Having really liked the Diamondback 8x32 binoculars, we decided to purchase a smaller lighter binocular for comfort and convenience while kayaking, hiking, hunting, and birdwatching. The new Diamondback 8x28 binoculars have certainly fit our needs. They are lightweight, easy to use, and very clear. They focus to such a close range yet steady enough for birdwatching while kayaking. The light weight has made them so nice for hiking and hunting. Great value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic Went moose hunting this past fall with 2 pairs of binoculars in the truck me and my buddy had some down time so I figured I'd clean lenses before heading out. was looking thru my one pair they were blurry and the colors were washed out. My buddy grabbed these bad boys and said to check them out. I was in love, HD vision and crisp true colors. Couldn't make a decision anymore clear. Ditch mine in the nearest trash when I got into town.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact Binocular for archery hunting I bought a pair of Vortex Hurricanes (former Diamonbacks) 8x28's 10-12 years ago and sent them in to have the grease replaced in the focusing mechanism. I dropped them off on Tuesday and had them back in my hands on Friday! Awesome Customer Service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Binocular for Those With Bad Eyes I went to the first round of the NCAA basketball tournament in Boise on 3-15-2018. I had a very low quality pair of binoculars that I decided to replace. I wanted a pair that could fit into my coat pocket, had high eye relief for my thick glasses, and a flat field and did not cost an arm and a leg. I didn't hold out much hope of finding a pair that met my requirements. I quickly found the Diamondback 8x28 binoculars. They met my requirements. The next day I attended the second round of the tournament. To my astonishment, I found a major added bonus of the Diamondback. The exit pupil of 3.5mm, (that's found by 28/8=3.5) is small enough to nullify my sever astigmatism. For the first time in my life, I can use the 8x28 Diamondback without my glasses or contacts! I didn't even think of this feature before I purchased them. The 18mm eye relief was just enough to use my glasses...which is now not relevent. I agree with all the other 5 star reviews so I won't repeat them. But if there was a 10 star rating, I'd use that! I've only used these binocs once but I absolutely know the Diamondback will serve me well for the rest of my life!!! Thank you Vortex.

Received new DB200 8x28 diamondback. How do I access the tripod socket? I don't want to strip or break something. Thanks...

The piece on the hinge with the logo on the objective end of the binoculars screws out to access the tripod adapter socket.

Can you recommend a case to fit these? 
Asked by: Tbestor
These binoculars should come with a small case that fits them just right. If this isn't what you are looking for and you would like something that is more designed to be worn or taken into the field, check out our friends at Badlands and they might have something!
