Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best set of binoculars I've ever bought I bought these for my wife for Christmas last year. We've taken them on all of our adventures ever since. The optics are so clear and easy to focus. I also bought the bino caddy with them and it makes a world of difference when carrying them. They don't bounce around as your walking and by having the weight of the binoculars over your shoulders you barely notice them at all. The best part is the warranty. Only a company that truly believes in the quality of its products would offer a life time warranty like vortex does. Great product and a great company!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set of glass I have had these for almost 8years, and only after last season I had a eyepiece start coming loose. This pair has been used hard all 8 yr. They have been in temperatures between -50 to 100+, I have drop them in rivers in Alaska. They are used hard daily from September to December. Had a pair of high end glass from Europe to compare them with I couldn’t tell the difference in lowlight or the heat of the day. Also for the price, weight, VIP Warranty how can you beat using vortex. The warranty process is easy. Fill the form out and send it in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great field of view and clarity I borrowed these 10x50's on a Caribou hunt in AK and was impressed with the clarity and field of view. I assumed they were a much more expensive bino and didn't find out they were under $300 until the trip was over. In comparison to the 10x42's these are heavier and larger simply due to nessecity of design. I feel like a quality bino harness and using a tripod for classing would have mitigated the effect of size and weight making it a non-issue. Why spend over $500 or over a grand on binoculars you're taking out into the field? These are well designed and sturdy. If they don't function or are damaged, they're covered under the warranty. It's a no brainer for a middle class hunter freeing you up to put more capital into other hunting gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Binos for the Money These are great binos. Love the 50mm lenses and the 10x magnification. Some binos feel like I'm looking through toilet paper tubes but these give me a great FOV without any tunneling. The light gathering is excellent as well and I find myself staying out a few min longer than some of my buddies with more expensive glass from another company. Many times I find them trying to borrow these. I've taken these through rain, snow, dust storms, and even some nice sunny days in between, and have always been pleased with the performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Open my eyes For years I hated carrying binoculars because they made my neck ache. My husband bought me these for Christmas & they have been amazing and not caused me any pain! Living in the Pacific Northwest & hunting in wet conditions, we've had several pairs of binoculars fail us on the past, even those that claim they won't. So the Vortex guarantee means a lot to us as well! Game on, I'm sporting animals as quickly as him in all conditions. Thanks for opening my eyes, thanks for a great product that you stand behind & we can too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first real binoculars This is my first pair of real binoculars. something that didn't come from the big box store that had the optical clarity of two Coke bottles taped together. it's unbelievable the difference and clarity of the glass. I take them with me up to the mountains to scout for deer and just generally look around. they are absolutely fantastic! I would urge anyone to purchase a vortex product and you would not be disappointed with your purchase. I will definitely purchase more products from vortex in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product For Less $$ I bought a pair of Diamond Back Classic10x50 binoculars on sale at Bass Pro Shops for $150, awesome deal, and compared them side by side with my buddies Leupold 8x42 that he paid over $500 for and you can't tell any difference between the two except mine are more powerful. We compared them in different light conditions...no difference. I could tell by the look on his face that he was impressed and a little sick at the same time. I also just recently sighted in my Diamondback HD 4x16x42mm Dead Hold BDC scope that I mounted on a Savage .300 win mag. I'm equally impressed with it. I'm ready to try both of them in the mountains of Colo. this fall, hopefully to spot a bull with the binos and put the crosshairs on him with my scope. Way to go Vortex, you have a new customer for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can see I have used these amazing binos for 3 plus years now and they are the best pair that I have ever owned. I phoneskope through them alll the time and love the images I get and the clarity of them. They give me that added zoom in range that I need to really decide if I want to go after that animal or put the spotting scope on it. You cannot beat this binos for price, effectiveness and quality. When hunting with my wife she will put her other than Vortex binos down and ask for mine because of said qualities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for all situations I bought these in Spring '16 and started using them in Turkey season. They were light enough for running around the Turkey woods in Spring heat but allowed me to clearly see Tom's from Jakes across Ag fields. Then in the summer I paired these up with a tripod for an week in Wyoming and glassed ton's of Elk and Antelope and rarely missed a spotting scope under 500 yards. Then I finally got to hunt big game with them this fall and the light transmission is awesome for evening whitetail sits. Love 'em!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diamond back vs Swarovski I was recently guiding a client in the McGrath, AK area. I had the Diamond backs he had the Swarovskis. We hiked 7 miles had become pretty steamy, those of you that have been there know what I'm talking about.lol. So we stopped to do some glassing and low and behold the Swarovski were all fogged up and the Diamond Backs were just fine. NO JOKE! We had this happen for the next three mornings lol needless to say the client was not to happy. In fact he said he is going to buy a pair Diamond Backs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love vortex product. I can't get enough, need more I'm always using vortex products. Its the only product out there that I can trust. I use vortex, binos, rangefinders, scope on my rifles. Every time I go out I can always depend on them to get the job done. Its a product I don't have to worry about in the field. It allows me to concentrate on what is more important. I know this because of there excellent warrant. Thank you vortex for making my hunts and scouting a success! I will always be a vortex user and will recommend to everyone I know!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last pair of binos that you'll ever buy. I've had the Diamondback 10x50 for over a year now and they're awesome. The glass is clear, the construction is rugged, they fit well in the hand and they're affordable for the hunter on a budget. And with these binoculars you also get a hardshell carrying case with strap, neck strap for the binoculars, small cleaning cloth and rubber caps for front and rear. All backed up by their VIP warranty. I also recommend purchasing the uni-daptor to attach to a tripod to help steady your view.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wont buy any more They are awsom in warm climate but when cold my new ones fog up. Not happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear, Solid Construction, usable with glasses! I purchased these for hunting and they work great. My previous pair had glare in them in the early morning hours when I looked towards the sun and these do a much better job filtering out the light. I wear glasses and I can actually keep my glasses on when I am using them which is a major plus. last thing I want to do is have a buck in front of me with my gun over my shoulder and glasses on my head frantically switching glasses on/off before I line up for a shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very clearq I bought these for deer hunting and for just being able to see down range. I couldn't be more impressed. the sight picture is just crystal clear, which is awesome in those low light conditions. I actually had to send these in for warranty because i'm pretty sure I broke them.... Guess what, Vortex didn't care and in about three days I had them in my hand everything was fixed and cleaned.. I will never buy from anyone else! You can't beat their warranty

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential in low light for all s you shooting needs. I use these binoculars In Ireland for deer stalking and fox shooting. They are excellent in low light and I have compared them to Zeiss terra hd in 8x42 and these win every time. When you eyes are failing at last light these will pick out deer In the darkest corners of the wood. I have bee using them for a year now and they are extremely durable. I would recommend buying a bino caddy to stop the flopping on your neck but this isn't a major issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the price. My wife bought me a pair of Diamondback 10x50 binos for my birthday, of coarse I wined about it.. LOL I have a pair of 7x50 Carl Ziess that I have had for 30 years, these Vortex are just as clear and the 10 power brought elk into view from great distances. I had what I thought was a elk in the early sun rise that looked so big I thought it was a tree, I had to look twice to realize it was a bull. I would recommend these to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GGRRREEEAAAAAT I bought a pair of the Diamondback 10X50 binocs, the next day I had them in my pickup and showed them to an Amish guy who bought them off of me right away. I did sell them to him for a couple dollars less than I had just paid for them less than 24 hrs before but that's ok. I did buy a new pair a couple days later and every one is happy. Love the product will always buy Vortex. Great product and people you can't go wrong with Vortex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I use these Binos for my everyday use for hunting. they are light and as a woman having them on your chest is not bad while archery hunting! very compact for the most part! Only thing that has happened is my eye relief broke but will be sending it in after hunting season couldn't imagine going without these amazing Binos. I used to use Nikon but switched all over to Vortex and beyond happy with their product and durability!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these! 2 years ago in black Friday I braved the below zero Temps and crazy people just to get these for myself and my dad. This last black powder season he left them on top of the rig after we shot at some deer. Of course they fell off when we drove off. After falling off a moving vehicle onto rocks and spending the cold night in the woods we found them just as they were when he opened them! I'm planning on a scope next!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would recommend this bino for most people I am a firm believer in time spent behind the glass hunter. My fiance bought thease for me as a gift. I had been using the Nikon Monarch 12/42 for years. But had lots of eye fatigue with them. After sitting for hours on end glassing with the Vortex 10-50 i had no eye fatigue. I have become a huge Vortex fan and love the clarity that they provide. I have in fact been bragging them up to all my hunting peeps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alaska Hunting with Diamondback Binos Spent a week in the Alaskan bush hunting moose. We I countered a dust storm, torrential downpours, a beautiful 55 degree day and below freezing temps. Even with the bipolar weather I never had to worry about my binos. I was always amazed at the quality of these binos with a pricepoint that doesn't break the bank. I already ordered a vortex scope and will be making more purchases in the future. Vortex rocks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would definitely recommend these to anybody I just got these on sale at Cabelas for the upcoming deer season. I haven't taken out to the lease yet. I have tested them in low light and full sun out conditions and am very impressed so far. The glass is very clear and they are very easy to adjust with one hand. This is my first purchase from Vortex and from other reviews and my experience thus far I am planning on more when the budget allows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blows my Nikons out of the Water If you want a great affordable pair of binos these are it. I dont have the roling hills like out west so glassing is not as essential but i dont ever home for the field leave without them. Clear, Crisp and super affordable. I didn't even want to sell my nikons because i firmly believe everyone should be using the vortex brand optics. Just another piece of glass in my collection with a "V" on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Value The Diamondback 10x50 binoculars have performed phenomenally, especially considering their reasonable price. They are very durable and have not disappointed me in any way. It's also incredibly comforting knowing that if anything should ever happen to my binoculars the VIP warranty will cover it. Overall I'm very pleased with these binoculars and they've made my entire family true Vortex fans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would Buy Again! This was my first pair of better quality binoculars I have purchased. After reading reviews(like this one) and reading about Vortex's warranty I was set. First trip out to Wyoming then did excellent! I was able to spot animals just as well as a friend who has a much more expensive competitors binocular. They took a beating but held up great! Now I just wish I had another pair for my day pack!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These diamond backs are the best optucs ive bought yet. I really love how the sun light does not effect them . Such a clear crisp line of sight threw them . Light weight an the neck strap is really comfortable to wear. With these I can finally count the antlers clearly . It's almost as I can count the hairs on the animal . An yes I would buy these or any other vortex equipment an optics again an again thank you so much for making these products .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needed a pair and found "old" model on sale. Great buy. Bought these since I needed a pair for upcoming elk hunt and then just having a pair of binos. Prior to hunt wasn't real impressed with them but once I got to Wyoming and started glassing, Oh My, very pleased and happy with purchase. Sure there are better binos but for the price I paid and even not on sale think they are well worth it. Oh glassed some elk but didn't harvest any, this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and clear I have used this product mainly for 3D archery and archery hunting in Wisconsin. Next year I will be happy to put them to the test in South Dakota. These binos have good adjustability if I want to switch from sunglasses/glasses to contacts. The view is clear and easy to focus. I have had no issues with fogging or water with these binos. Glad to have found such a good company in Wisconsin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of glass I have had my Diamondback for about three years now. Still nothing to put a finger on. Great clear wiew, still nice firm focus wheel and still clean lenses without any scratches. I always have it with me in the car. So it have travelt lots of km on gravel roads. There will not be any doubt about what brand my next scope will be. This is a awesome bino for almost no money
