Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Range Finder I bought this for my Antelope Hunt in Wyoming. I quickly learned ranging an Antelope past 400 yards was nearly impossible and when it did give you a number It took 20-25 tries. When you get past 350 it doesn’t function well at all in the field. Take it somewhere and range buildings and it works better but in the field it sucks. This wasn’t a rocky area, it was a grazing pasture. I am so disappointed in the 1300. I have many products from vortex and love them all that’s why I purchased the 1300 but they need to take the 1300 back to engineering because it does not do as it claims. Ranging in the field was frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price for a Great Product I bought the Ranger about 2 years ago and have been very happy with it. I use it when hunting and when sighting in my rifles and bows and it has performed very well. There have been multiple times that I've dropped or hit the Ranger and held my breathe as I examined it, thinking that there would have to be some kind of damage to it. Every time I was blown away when there wasn't even a scratch. And it's comforting to know that even if something would happen to my Ranger the VIP warranty would cover it. Overall I'm very happy with the performance and durability of the Ranger and plan on buying more in the future for my kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Outstanding Customer Service Ever! I purchased a ranger 1000 last summer for a winter elk hunt in Az. When my hunt came I was packing gear on thanksgiving weekend, while checking out my ranger I found it was totally inop I started freaking out that I wouldn’t have my new finder. All I can say is after the holiday weekend I spoke to someone on Monday and I had a new finder by Wensday in time for my hunt .When I opened the box I couldn’t believe it I was upgraded to the next model, and got a surprise hat in the box..Outstandingservice!outstanding! I am now a 100% supporter of Vortex. And the Ranger is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from !!!!!!!Wow!!!!!!!! I am new to bow hunting and archery and did a lot of research tested a lot of rangefinders and went to my local pro shop and asked around. All resources pointed me to this! And wow it is amazing easy to use and feels very durable. I am so excited to get out there and use it in real world scenarios. If your on edge about purchasing just go for it. You only live once and deserve the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal products from a trustworthy company I bought a ranger range finder for elk hunting cause a couple guys I know had them but what I didn’t know was how much I would like the company as a whole. Not long after I bought the ranger finder it stopped working while shooting so I went and sent in and got confirmation a day or two later it was processed and on its way to repair. A week later I had a brand new ranger finder on my door step. I couldn’t ask for a better company to provide me with better products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last rangefinder you will ever need I have used this rangefinder for everything under the sun. The ease and quality are un-matched and the VIP warranty males it even better. I buy gear to use it and this rangefinder comes worry free. I'm a vortex fan to the core and Vortex has done it again with this rangefinder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rangefinder Awesome rangefinder, it’s accurate, bright, and easy to use. I have zero complaints. It’s lightweight, durable, and ergonomic. It’s also angle compensating. I used it to kill my 2017 AZ elk, as well as my 2018 Archery Javelina.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size and simple to use. Bought this a few weeks ago and it was the perfect fit. Between rifle and bow it does everything I need and has all the right options. Simple to change modes and the red display makes it easy to read. Would recommend 100%
