Rated 4 out of 5 by from chubs this chubby little monocular is a great option if you just need a lightweight reference of a medium range target area or a quick glance at a bird on a perch. of course the field of view isn't great compared to binos, but that's not what we're talking about here anyway. the glass is crisp. this is usually where you get your money's worth with vortex. in this case, the solo 10x36's eye relief is awkward. the adjustments for glasses vs without glasses helps, but i almost always wipe the glass with my eyelashes when i use it. the focus is easy to adjust and stays put for the most part. there are also like a jillion ways to carry it. oh, did i mention it weighs almost nothing? dig.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I bought the 10x36 model early 2016 and I have been waiting to write a review until I had a chance to test it. I am very impressed with the crisp and clear optics and the excellent performance when the light is low. I live in Sweden, where the sun is up all summer and where it gets dark at 15.00 in the winter. I would say the neoprene cover is better than the carrier case shown in the manual. I have both thanks to Vortex excellent customer service that sent me one free of charge. The neoprene cover give a better protection if, for instance, if you fumble and drop the monocular on a rock (as I have done a couple of times) or when you shove it into your knapsack. It is small and light, so you will bring it on the stroll or the day hike. All in all, a great piece of optics for a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and handy My friends always make fun of me for buying and using this monocular when we are out hunting but it's a versitle tool to have. I attach it to my Bad Lands bino case with the Molle webbing. It's perfect for when you're packing a rifle in one hand and using the other for the monocular for fast identification. If I need a second look, I simply slide the metal clip through the Molle webbing and use my binoculars. It has saved my butt more than once.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice monocular Received this monocular as a gift for Christmas. It's really bright, and not too big to carry with me when hunting or hiking. The neoprene case that comes with it is very nice, and the belt clip is great. I'd buy one of the smaller solos if they came with a belt clip. Wouldn't mind having the flip-back eye-cup like on the ranging version, either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for a very good monocular. I needed a monocular for work. I needed one that would hold up to hours of use on a daily basis in all types of weather conditions. When I make a purchase I always do a lot of research to get the best value for my money. I purchased one of the Vortex Solo monoculars. It has held up to a year of use so far with zero problems. It was a good purchase and I am pleased with it. I am also pleased with the thought that Vortex offers a unconditional warranty. I have since purchased a red dot for my ar and will write a review for that as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Gear Purchased this equipment to double for recon work in patrol and as an outdoor adventure scope on the off days. So far, I'm highly impressed with the quality, optical clarity, functionality (all for the price) and of course customer service. The reason for 4-stars - it's a little ergonomically clunky for left handers (but not a big deal). Optical clarity is pretty darn good for the price - although there is a noticeable difference when I compare it to my higher end 8x42 binoculars. Low light gathering is on the upper end of decent but not quite excellent. I'd highly recommend as a standard gear piece - it's excellent for the price and achieves exactly what I need it to do. Powerful enough for close to medium range viewing. Rugged. Belt clip is very useful (for me). If I wanted better, I would have spent more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ship Spotting I bought this in 2016 out of a need to read vessel and tug names and keep an eye on deck operations. While nothing really comes close to a good set of binos if you are right on space and still need to see this is a great option. The glass is clear and the objective lense gathers a great amount of light to be able to see in low light conditions. 4 stars as I wish it came with a better strap but a solid piece of kit this is

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality for Value I bought this 'gadget' for deer hunting in the Northwoods. Shots are close, so my rifle has a low power scope. The 'Solo' allows me to scan greater distances with greater quality than my 2.5X rifle scope. I didn't expect the lens quality from a 'lower' cost monocular, boy was I surprised! The quality is as good as binoculars costing 5-600 dollars! The light weight and compactness makes them easy to pack and carry.
