Our proprietary ArmorTek coating on all exterior lenses resists scratches and smudges.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vulture 10X56 I bought a pair of theses binos for low light situations and I am very happy with them in low light situations they are crisp and I have yet to have any eye fatigue while using them. color and light transition compare to glass two to three times the cost of these I can glass all day, with these. I have friend continually asking about them and where they can get them and I have to tell them they have been discontinued. I hope they never give me any issues because I don't think there is anything Vortex makes or anyone else does that can compete with them. Only down side they are a bit on the heavy side but that's to be expected with HD glass. 4 out of five just because they have been discontinued.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic binoculars I take binoculars with me everywhere, I don't leave home without them. I use them for hunting, birding, or just running around. I just got these, and have to say that I am impressed with the clarity and details that I can see that I could not see with previous other binoculars. Even at dawn and dusk in low light I can see the details that I could never see before. The big objective makes everything brighter and clearer. They will give the higher dollar binos a run for the money. I love them and they are priced within everyone's budget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way BETTER than I expected I have used the Viper HD 8x32 binos for a couple years now and I love them. I was hesitant to move up to a larger/heavier optic for more Western spot and stalk hunting I was doing. Every ounce matters. When I got them, I didn't even have time to try them out. I put them in my bag and started the drive to western Nebraska. The first morning of glassing the Sandhills was amazing... They were not that heavy and the detail that I could see over my 8x32 Vipers was well worth the money!! I was able to see far off hillsides without getting the spotting scope out and I could look through them continually for 30 minutes or more with ZERO eye strain. These binoculars are well worth the price tag and honestly, I would pay more for what I got out of them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vulture binoculars I am very impressed with these binos. I have had a few issues with these (covers broke & one was lost then they were replaced under warranty, an eye relief ring was bent and it was replaced under warranty). I use these binos for hunting mostly but at other times of the year also. I get a wonderfully clear view with these and brag often to friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low light performance at its finest! I just got the Vulture HD's this year and can already say that these have been the best low light binoculars I've ever had. In the early morning or late evening in the stand or on the 3D range with heavy canopy, these binoculars really perform amazingly well. Colors are bright and pleasant and the detail is phenomenal. Great great great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10/10 would buy again The original vulture 10x50s in coyote tan were my first binoculars. I've had them for at least 7 years and they've been great, or at least they were until they went missing a couple weeks ago. I really hope they turn up, though, because they were with me whenever I left the house. I love them!

what objective lens cover fits the Vulture HD 10x56
Asked by: BJ
Our Defender Flip Caps in the O-56 size will fit the objective on those. They come close to touching, so you will need to cant them slightly.
