Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vulture HD 15x56 I just got these Binoculars Vortex Vulture HD 15x56 and have used high priced high end Bino's before that to my eyes that are 20/20 were just okay, never good enough to justify the purchase. Granted these high priced optics were my family members so who was I to complain about the price. Needless to say I wanted some good quality binoculars of my own and found Vortex Vulture HD 15x56. I can't say enough good things about this quality build, and warranty if you happen to break these well built optics is unbeatable. It's a good pick for an optic snob or for some average hunter like myself on a budget.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Confidence in this product. I received these just days before a camping trip to Yellowstone NP. The first day was sunny, the second was overcast and the third and fourth it rained and snowed. Each day in different conditions these binoculars did their job! Out of the warm vehicle, into the snowstorm they never fogged up. They put us close to the elk that were bugling, even though they were a long ways away, and the sun was gone we were able to count every point on the smallest bull. It is amazing the amount of light that these binoculars let in. The HD's are a good deal, they were not cheap. I know there are better models out, but they also come with a heavier price. For the money we paid, we considered this a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every Dad should own a great pair of Vortex binoculars! I picked up a Vortex Vulture HD 15x56 binoculars out for myself. I hunt and fish just like many guys. But, my family really enjoy the power and clarity of these binoculars. The Vulture HDs get far more use from the kids than myself, and I think that is AWESOME! Wherever we find ourselves wanting to get up close to Nature, birds, deer, squirrels (or even the Moon and stars) these binoculars exceed my expectations every time! The kids always ask first hand to bring them when we leave the house, so they stay at hand all the time. Great job Vortex, you make being a dad the best adventure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changing the game I purchased a pair of these 15's for Coues Whitetail hunting in Southeastern Arizona. Upon arrival I was extremely happy with them; they are well built and a solid pair of binoculars. The quality of the glass is superior to any other brand that I have ever owned. I use these to pick apart hills inch by inch to find the slightest movements while attached to a tripod. These binoculars were what changed the game for me when it came to glassing. I was able to glass for longer time periods and at further distances than I had ever before. Thanks Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily the best piece of hunting equipment I have bought I always thought I could get away with using cheap Binoculars and spending my money elsewhere. One of my really good friends, who also is an avid hunter, kept hounding me to break down and buy a quality set. After a little research (and finding out they have an amazing LEO discount) I settled on the Vulture HD 15x56. I had to wait a little longer than I wanted due to them being on back order, but I was fine with that. I am now spotting more game animals than I could have ever imagined. These are a must have hunting in a state like AZ.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Binos for the $$ I bought these last year to take to South Dakota. I have a pair of 10x Diamondbacks but wanted something with more magnification without buying a spotter. These served that purpose. They are very clear and let in lots of light. They are heavy but that is to be expected for 15x Binos. I used a bipod to stabilize them when seated and that worked well. The extra detail I could pick out with 15x versus the 10x was worth the $$ to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended for long range hunting! I bought these as an alternative to carrying my 25 x 100 binoculars and it been the best move I ever made. We hike the hills of PA and spot deer long range from 500 to 1200 yards and these Vulture HD binoculars at 15 x 56 provide clear and sharp images of game. We can even follow the vapor trail to identify hits. We use them for hunting and long range target as well. Perfect high power optics at a perfect price. Thank you Vortex.

Why so heavy compared to your 15 x50 vipers
Asked by: Larry
The 56 mm objective lens adds a lot of extra weight as well as the body is larger to accommodate the larger objective lens which adds weight as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super clear crisp image! The warranty rocks! I actually bought these from a co-worker who had them on a tripod and it tipped over and broke them on some rocks. I called vortex and the staff was awesome! They had me send them in and they fixed them for free! They are super clear and have a very sharp image. They are much clearer to look through than my bausch and lombs. Love them, and what a great warranty! Thanks!
