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 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 Perfect for the range or LR observation. It is very common seen a lot of LR match shooters and LR hunters switching from spotting scopes to this outstanding binos; and after using them and experiencing the HD glass sharp image with the 56mm objective lens for light gathering in low light situations I became a transitioner. Using the adjustable diopter and the center focus wheel makes spotting for any of my gun friends or spotter a very personalized experience and since using both eyes eye strain/fatigue had never happened.For comfort they include the neckstrap, carry case and even a tripod adapter for extended surveillance.On the outside they are built with ODG rubber armor to prevent slips ,retain less heat than full black colors and internally waterproof and fogproof .All cover by the Vortex VIP lifetime transferable warranty.A most have for police units.

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 See the ticks on a deer's back I have been hunting with a little pair of 10x42 binos for years. I though they were powerful enough to get the job done. It wasnt until I hunted last year for the first time with these Vortex 15x56 Vulture HD binos that I realized I was blind. The HUGE aperture on these things lets you more fully utilize the precious low light mornings and evening, and the 15 power glass let you not only tell if there are horns but if he is a shooter or not. They are a little larger than traditional binos but it is totally worth it.

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 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.
