Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long range without the spotter bulk I bought this last fall before hunting season fired up and absolutely love it. The clarity at long range is amazing for a not to terribly expensive pair of binos. For the size of them that is. My only complaint is they are quite heavy. I carry them in an Alaska Guide Creations Denali back which fits them perfectly. They carry quite well in that but you can sure feel it when you pull them out. They work great on a Bog Pod with a bino holder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Glasses I own a pair of Vortex and a pair of Swarovski binoculars. I truly believe my Vortex are the better glasses. And the customer service and warranty is amazing. Thank you for building a awesome product that you stand behind 100% and is affordable. Here is a picture of me and my son glassing for some AZ desert mule deer. We fight over the Vortex. As you can see in the picture Dad usually wins.Lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tripod glass I bought a pair of 18x56 Kaibab's during a hunt last year and I quickly fell in love with them. When there paired with a good sturdy tripod they are amazingly clear and crisp. I did notice the focal adjustment doesn't need a whole lot of adjustment even when glassing at different ranges. Overall a fantastic pair of binos for the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Binos! Got these binos for hunting and spotting at prs matches. These binos have outstanding clarity at the magnification range. The glass is crystal clear allowing me to see bullet trace without issue. In my opinion they are up there with the swaros. Swaros are a tad better but the price difference makes the kaibab the better choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great glass I’ve had my 15x56 for two years now, I love them. I was nervous the 25x56’s would be to zoomed but going back now I would have bought the 25 power I like to look a long ways! Definitely have to have a tri pod or window mount. Great binos
