Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Snipers Perspective Needed A pair of Bino’s For an upcoming elk trip. Winters in the Wyoming mountains are not for the faint of heart so I know they needed to be durable and reliable among all other things. After testing many many options at the local hunting outfitter I decided on the Diamondback. The clarity was amazing. I was able to glass the snowy peaks for an hour before I needed to give my eyes a break. My uncle (lifelong hunter) asked to use them for a second and immediately said “wow”. He asked me if they were of another brand. (Rymes with Shmarshmoski). I laughed. Goes to show how much tender loving awesomeness goes into these things. Would recommend to a friend 10/10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Buy for the Budget Hunter. I got these binoculars after searching for months for the best product for my budget. I do some wildlife observations for work as well as a lot of glassing for hunting. The 8x42 are the perfect size and weight, you can wear them all day. The rubberized finish is perfect for holding in cold or wet weather, and it seems to stick to my gloves like glue! I've never had the lens fog up, even when going from my warm vehicle to a cold tree stand. A good few months of not eating out or buying coffee and you can afford these. If not the Crossfires are a good second choice. Best buy for the budget hunter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get more then what you pay for! I picked up a pair of the 8x42’s for work an they are fantastic! I beat the heck out of these things. They are always tossed up in the dashboard of the truck, an often fall to the floor boards when in bad terrain. Been using them for over a year and they still hold up! The glass is often covered in dust, but a quick rub down from a glass cleaning wipe clears them right back up. Had the “vortex 8x42” sticker fall off from the focus knob and had the screws start to come loose, but tightened them back down an she runs good as new! Great bino’s for the price. Decent glass, and extreme durability!
