Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I picked up a pair of 15x56 and 20x56 kaibabs to compare. I like the 15's better mainly due to low light performance. Both are amazing with excellent clarity. The focus is smooth and the eye relief is comfortable with glasses. It is truly amazing how much more you can see with these then 10x binos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from See more! Kill more! Great glass back by an even better warranty! I have used this for 3 years and have been able to find more animals than ever before. Living in Arizona you need a good powerful glass to cover a lot of area. Matched with a good tripod it doesn't get much better. Now to the con. They can be a bit heavy compared to some, but with the power and quality a few more ounces doesn't hurt. Over all I have been happy with the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product from a great company I got these binoculars of the prize table at the Snipers Hide Cup and they are awesome. The prize table had a lot of great Vortex product's on it and I thought it was very nice to see such support and generosity from a great company with awesome product's. I used these binoculars for hunting and spotting mule deer. The clarity, brightness, and quality are great. I was able to use them for long periods of time without getting eye fatigue. These are a great spotting binocular and I would definitely recommend them. I will definitely be getting more Vortex product's in the future. I can't wait till I save up the funds to get one of the new Vortex AMG scopes. The best thing about Vortex is the great people they have working for them. There customer service and support is the best. There are other companies with great product's but it is hard to find a company that will take better care of there customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honest Thoughts On My Kaibab's I love these things...! For the cost, I can find deer just like my buddies can with much more expensive optics. I tried another pair and a spotting scope and all it did was make me realize how much I enjoyed my Kaibabs. They're my go to glass for western hunts. Time and time again I would recommend these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone wants to keep them once they try them. I have used these on several deer and elk hunts now, they have more than doubled my finds for deer. Must have for any Desert hunter, my dad was old school and a big sceptic until I found four bucks where he thought there was nothing. One of my key pieces of gear, can't wait to try more products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing piece of glass! My Kaibab binoculars are an essential part of my hunting kit. I spend most of my time glassing long distances, along the southern border. While these binoculars are not light, they are crystal clear. Sometimes I have to catch myself glassing too far away. These are by far the best optics I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex Kaunas Binoculars- Old School Quality These are world class binoculars. They remind me of the Leica and other European brands, but at a much better price, from an American company. I use these for long range spotting off a tripod in open country. Good low light (twilight) hunting clarity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soothing to the eyes! I have used the Kiababs the last 2 years both guiding and hunting for myself and am absolutely pleased. All day glassing with no eye strain. Very, and I mean very slight distortion at the edges but I still give them an excellent rating for the money.

I am thinking that the KAIBAB HD 15x56 comes with the "Binocular Tripod Adapter" and not the "Uni-Daptor" correct? but either of these could be used as a tripod mount for the KAIBAB HD 15x56 is this correct?
Asked by: dougo
The Kaibab 15x56's come with the Uni-Daptor shipped in the box, though both types will work.
