Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accessory for the 3 gun range bag The Solo R/T is a fantastic accessory to throw in your range bag if you shoot 3 gun. I have 3 pieces of equipment that always go with me when there are long distance rifle shots involved. 1) My solo R/T 2) My Ranger 1000 LRF and 3) My Kestrel. The Solo R/T allows me to get an eye quickly on targets while walking through stages, get rough range estimations and target sizes and helps me plan my stage. The optical quality for the price is great, and I love the reticle. It also slips easily in to a pocket out of the way until I need it and doesn't take up much space in my range bag. Must have piece of gear for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear glass! Range estimating reticle! I bought this as I hate the struggle of re-adjusting binoculars while hunting in a rush. This monocular also one-up’d me by having the ranging reticle built in! Whitetail back hieght is easily ranged by cutting 6ft figures in half, quick and easy! The reticle is awesome in the sense that it is useable, visible, and NOT obstructing! The feel is very lightweight but solid and I love the rubber grip on it too. The clip is awesome too so I don’t have binocs swinging around my neck. Oh and I wear glasses so the roll back design on the eyeshade is amazing as well! All this and the glass is clear clear clear! If you are looking for something to peek at animals with quick and easy, this is perfect. I would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery free range finder. I bought this monocular for hunting, but I can see myself using this anytime I am out in the field for training or fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable 24/7 So about a month ago a bud and I were shooting over a small valley. We had gongs set up over different locations. Any ways my range finder wasn’t giving me the range, so I thought this would be a great time to break out the ST R/T 8x36. Man is it handy, by knowing the target size and looking through the monocular I could get a good idea how far away the targets were. Vortex, you will always be at the top of my list for when I need new gear!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from External side of lense fogs up in mild conditions I find the build quality of the monocular to be great...however....I find that the outside of the ocular lense dogs up rapidly in even mild conditions and this limits the image dramatically. I find this very frustrating. I have made sure the lense is clean and that the rubber cup is folded up etc. but it still happens. I love the design but this flaw makes me want to leave the monocular behind sometimes. What a pitty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NICE! I bought 1 of these after I was on a CO elk hunt and my guide had 1. It works great and its way better then any bino I have ever had. My left eye doesnt have the best of vision, so no need for a pr of binoculars. I would highly recommend this for anyone. My guide has a scope with the same stuff and the 2 work awesome together

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for bow hunting Bought this as I am blind in my right eye, so binoculars would be waste. It tucks nicely on my shoulder strap for that quick look before the shot. Before vortex was stuck with poor quality optics and construction of a golf monocular the optical clarity is amazing with vortex

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear, sharp optic in a handy package Very happy with this monocular. The optical clarity is very good. Having the reticle is a great benefit with range estimation. It's a regular part of my hunting and hiking kit. Small and light, it's easy to add for outings.
