Discontinued Vulture® HD 8x56 Binocular

Let there be light. With 56mm objective lenses, Vulture® HD series binoculars deliver absolutely incredible light transmission and superior low light performance—a critical attribute at dawn and dusk when game can be most active. And the phase-corrected roof prisms, fully multi-coated optics and our proprietary XR™ coatings deliver a super-bright image that’s sharp from edge-to-edge. Our proprietary ArmorTek coating on all exterior lenses resists scratches and smudges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money and all-round winner!! I was in the market for some new optics last winter, doing my research and comparing different makes and models the best fit option was Vortex by a long shot. Hunting Mainly out in the high country of Victoria, i really needed a large objective lens like the 56mil to get first light and last light to make the most of my prime hunting time worth while, I can easily get a 30min head start on my competitor glassing the tops, farm fringes and the thick stuff! The rubber coating on the outside is great to hold onto all day and super balanced for one hand operation. And finally the greatest draw card of all the life time warranty your can't beat that thanks vortex ! cheers Marty

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going beyond! I purchased my 8x56 Vultures in 2014; I really am enjoying them. I did have an issue with the diopter adjustment, sent it in and got it fixed fast. Pleased with the results. I also requested pricing to replace the objective lens covers and case that was stolen when some one broke into my friends car while out birding. I spoke with Larry at customer service and he's sending me new covers and a cost no charge. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!
