Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! Being a guide for several years and have any opportunities to look through different glass. You get to see plenty of differences. The clarity of Vortex Kaibab binoculars stands alone. We do a lot of Cuz Whitetail hunting in southern Arizona where we're looking 1 to 2 miles out, through Vortex Kiabab Bionocluars the view is unremarkable. You don't have the heat distortion that is normally seen through high powered glasses. The light gathering ability is nothing less than amazing! Overall this is a great product and an awesome price I would highly recommend it and have several times over. I go no where without my Vortex glasses!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good I've had the 20x56 for a year now and through a ton of use. The low light performance was much better than expected and almost matches my 10x42 razors. 4 stars because the eye relief is short and leaves a little to be desired, and there is a noticeable amount of distortion around the edges. The center of the view is very sharp though. Good bino for the price but not quite as good as some other big eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quick review on 20x56 Vortex bino's I just purchased the 20 power vortex kiabab's. I have got to say that vortex has hit a home run with this glass. It's amazing you can look through these for hours and not feel any eye strain. My dad has the swaro's 15x56 that he has had for years, he was sceptical when I told him about the purchase saying, "you get what you pay for"! But after looking through both binoculars side by side and telling him I paid 1,200 dollars less than the swaro's with no real clear difference in clarity, not to add the better magnification that I have he agrees I made a great purchase. One thing which I feel is obvious there 20 power, i know crazy right? So you need a solid tripod. Wonderful glass guys keep up the quality and bad to the bone Warranty and I'll keep reffering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Glass for hunting the Desert Southwest Great glass for long distance viewing and scouting of wildlife, the 20x magnification saves Miles of waling while the 50mm objective allows plenty of light in for viewing in lower light conditions such as sunset or sunrise. I have been using these for the past few weeks scouting for elk, antelope, and more here in my "neighborhood" of the White Mountian's of Arizona (Hunt Unit 1) and have been quite pleased with them compared to the spotting scope I used to haul around for distant viewing...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big expectations, Big rewards I first used the Kaibab 20x56 when I was out scouting with a friend for his deer hunt. I fell in love instantly with the clarity and how easy it is to view animals through them while glassing. I truly believe these are some of the best binoculars that someone can buy. Without a doubt one of the highest quality optics on the market and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a quality pair of binoculars that will endure through any weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love all of our Vortex optics! The Kaibab binoculars worked perfectly for the recent rifle antelope hunt in Unit 10. Light and easy to use for viewing bucks for long periods of time. Can't wait to hopefully get a tag next year so that I am able to score a nice buck to place next to the one my husband got this year. Yes, he also uses the Vortex Kaibab binos! Don't need the heavier MORE expensive brands when you have Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sorry I waited so long to buy these! After having purchased so many binoculars over the years I realize I have wasted a lot of money. I bought these a few months ago and I am in shock! Best binoculars in my opinion for the cost. Since I bought these I have replaced the rest of my rifle scopes and spotting scope with Vortex products. You can't go wrong with these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bino's I used these on my hunts this year and saw how much a great piece of glass makes a difference. I spotted my biggest muley to date at over a mile with these binos, and was able to harvest a great buck. With my old pair of binos, I would have not even seen the deer. The clarity of these are amazing!!

Do you know of a company that makes a bino pack for these beast?! Like a bino hub case.
Asked by: Fino
