Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very clear I've really come to respect vortex and their products. These Diamondbacks are very crystal clear. They are great for brush spotting and closer range spotting and will out perform more powerful binoculars of lesser brands with their clarity. No fog or weird colors just clear view. Someday I hope to upgrade to a more powerful vortex binocular.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great view, lightweight I bought a pair for my 6 yr old daughter for out birding excursions...good clarity and wide field of view. Much better than her previous brand. Warranty is unconditional so good pair to start her out with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact affordable binocular I purchased the Diamondback 8X28 binoculars three years ago for a crystal clear, light weight optic for archery hunting, turkey hunting, and scouting. They are my "go everywhere" opitcs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Left a bit to be desired. We bought these for my wife back in 2016 and have used and abused them for hunting, camping, spotting for shooting, and just general recreation. They have held up great and they are small enough to fit her little hands and not make her neck tired, which is a huge plus. Having said that, I think I would go in a different direction if I had it to do all over again. My main pair of binos are a pair of 10x42's from another manufacturer, as well as a pair of 8x25s from the same manufacturer, and the 8x25s I have are much higher quality glass and have much better light transmission in low light, and they run in the same price point. I had no way of knowing this when I purchased them, because the store only let me step outside momentarily to test them out, and it was only realized after much time behind the glass. They're not bad if you get a killer deal, but I don't think I would buy them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got exactly what I hoped for! I have had mine for a while now and the resolution and visibly is spectacular along with how easy they are to adjust and get focused. They are also extremely durable, they get thrown around in my truck or dropped in the mud and their performance is still spot on. Only thing I was 100% with was the covers for the bottom lenses, they like to fall off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact binoculars I purchased these binoculars from Cabelas while they were on sale, and have to say that I am very impressed. These binoculars produce sharp and clear images while being small enough to carry around in a blind bag. I primarily hunt waterfowl and look forward to finally having quality binoculars to use while scouting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent products Using my Diamondback for hunting and find it very well build and sturdy. A real quality product for a price that is half of the same comparable product. Therefore i ordered a 6.5-20x50 yesterday and looking forward to using it for many years. /John

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Great product I use for everything outdoors. I own the Diamondback series scope for my favorite bolt action rifle and the Diamondback series has impressed me and I am forever a Vortex customer. Great products.
