Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won't disappoint Bought the razor 10x42 three years ago after vigorously comparing all the major brands, overall vortex lenses were the clearest of any other brand except Swarovski. But in price vs. quality vortex blew the other competition out of the water, and then considering the warranty there wasn't much of a competition. I tend to be hard on all my hunting gear and these binos have not only withstanded all the abuse I have put on them but they have made me a better hunter. The only complaint I have is my eye cups have loosened over the past month but after hunting season I will be sending the back for repair thanks to the peace of mind warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new HD's I bought my Vortex Razor HD 10x42 two weeks ago. I previously owned a 12 year old pair of Cascades, and I can tell you that the Vortex Razors blow those out of the water. I was skeptical about spending as much money as these were, but boy they are worth every penny. I was hunting for 3 days in every condition possible in the mountains of Montana. Not once did these binoculars fail me. We hunted hard for 3 days, in heavy terrain, crazy weather, and hundreds of active elk. Loved being able to deal with them all and not having to worry about the conditions that my binoculars were being exposed to. They worked perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Decision I have owned several pairs of Vortex Optics (Bino's, Scope, and Rangefinder) and have been pleased with them all. The quality of the binoculars is top end and I have had no issues that I did not cause with any of them. The customer service is even better than the products they sell. I have always been taken care of when I have to call up to have something repaired. The repairs I have required have all been my own fault, dropping them on cement will bend an extended eye cup. Scratching the lens things of that nature. It doesn't matter what I did they are helpful and friendly combine that with the top end products they make and I can't think of a reason not to recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Binos Ever!! I have used Vortex products for well over 6 years now and I can honestly say they keep surprising me more and more every year. Not only is the VIP warranty un-touchable in the hunting optics market, but Vortex literally makes the clearest, toughest, top of the line product out there. I jumped to the Razor's because I have been so happy with my Viper HD's I didn't think it could get any better....it did. The Razor HD brag the clearest, sharp, accurate and precise glass and they have it. They literally are the best of the best and I won't every let my eyes touch anything that isn't Vortex. Thanks for setting the standard guys and gals! Keep up the amazing work. I'm a #VORTEXER for life!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Bino's I bought these to upgrade from a pair of Nikon Monarchs. With my old bino's I could only glass for about 30-45 minutes before going cross-eyed. Not with these! I had the chance to take these out on a caribou hunting trip in AK a few weeks back. I spent hrs behind these with no eye strain! They are very clear at extreme distances! I was picking out camps set up 2 and 3 ridge lines beyond my own. I also like that you can get the attachment to use them with your tripod. I recommend these to all of my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than so called "top shelf" competitors at half price! I bought these for glassing the high country and deserts of the western US where I typically hunt. I was in the market as my first pair of binos were not cutting it. Most of my hunting buddies were rocking swaros which are great but I just couldn't afford them so after shopping around and reading reviews I decided to go with these and I couldn't be happier. The quality of the glass is amazing and I can look through them all day without any eye strain. They are lighter than the competition which matters when you are counting ounces and they just have a great feel when in your hands. when you factor in all that and look at the price and lifetime warranty you can't beat these binos. I recommend you get yourself a pair. Happy Hunting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased these approximately a month ago. I had to send I purchased these approximately a month ago. I had to send them in for some minor adjustments and they were sent back to me within 10 days. I work customer service as well and I can tell you that yours is second to none. The razors are definitely the best in there class and also I feel that they are on a very very close par with the other top 3 alpha binoculars that cost much more. They are great in low light and are very crisp and clear with great color. Thanks again for the great customer service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed with standing behind your product. Vortex 10×42 razor HD. Worst optics I have ever owned. Pretty sure I bought binos with a 00 warranty. Seals were bad when I bought them first trip out at first light fog on the inside of the lenses. Anyone who's ever had this happen knows the sick feeling you get, kinda ruins allot of plans. I was upset, but understanding everyone has an oops right. I send them in expecting a replacement pair, but instead receive the flawed ones repaired. I figure okay I'll give them another shot. This time I get a whopping 3 years out of my 00 binos and one of the seals go out again. I sent them back in with a note" Please replace these obviously something is not right with them". 7 days later I get a box in the mail with the same garbage pair in it "REPAIRED" wait where have I heard this before? I was looking at purchasing a rangefinder and a Razor spotting scope, but I think I'll look elsewhere. P.S. binos were never dropped or mistreated, they still look like new.

Can the eyecups be removed to help clean the binoculars?
Asked by: Max C
No, the eyecups should not be removed. We usually recommend using some canned air and cue tips with something like IPA alcohol to get into the smaller parts of the eyecups to clean. After cleaning, if you really got into the tracks of the eyecup with a solution like IPA alcohol, a small dab of superlube in the tracks will then keep the eyecup twisting up and down smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality at a reasonable cost! Every hunter knows that good optics are not cheap. I use the Vortex Razor 10x42's for my archery mule deer and elk hunts in Idaho. They are extremely versatile and are also great for my whitetail, hog and turkey hunts in Texas. While there are lots of companies that offer quality optics, I do believe that Vortex has hit the sweet spot with the Razor 10x42's on quality, price, and versatility. I would put the Vortex Razor HD's up against any other binocular that may cost twice as much and you'd be hard pressed to find any noticeable difference. The warranty is unmatched as well and offers a security blanket for serious hunters who aren't afraid of putting their binoculars to work. After trying lots of brands and doing plenty of research, I have no plans of ever using any brand besides Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have in the gunning bag / in the field Finally was able to make the right purchase instead of settling or trying to make something else work. Have used other brand optics (well, used to use....). Well worth the investment. Excellent clarity when it counts most - those early and late hours while to sun wakes up or goes to sleep and you still have a few hours hiking out. Focus is quick, easy, and accurate. Weight has not been a factor. Very bright. Used for wild pig and deer so far and very pleased with performance.
