Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn’t get any better at this price point I’ve had these binos for a few years now and have put them through the gambit of hunting challenges. They’ve been dropped in the river, mud, and out of my treestand more than once. I’ve had them on my chest while I’ve army crawled through thick brush and fields, sat for hours in the rain and fog, and have had them with me from 80° down to the negatives. I’ve never had a single issue or challenge with them that a quick cleaning couldn’t fix. Dials all still function flawlessly, glass is as clear as the day i bought them, and overall the binos hardly show any signs of wear. You can’t go wrong with vortex and these binos definitely live up to the hype.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old School to New School I hadn’t upgraded my nocs in well over 15yrs. They were the old, big bulky Bushell that cost a pretty penny back in the day. I already had my mind set on Vortex when I went to Cabelas. I pointed at 4 certain ones to get out. I said mix them up and don’t tell me which is which. I spent about 15 min looking through each of them and settled on the Diamondback HD. I could not be happier except I didn’t get the camo version. My only bad note is the case it comes with. It is made of great material but that material is a little too loud for me when in the woods. I’ll be swapping to the regular Vortex harness. *I completed this review after using for about 3 weeks of hunting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch I got Diamondback HD 10 x 42's, when my Eagle Optics 10x 42's could not be repaired. Vortex not only honored the existing warranty, they stepped up and gave me a pair Diamondback HD's. These binoculars are far superior to the ones they replaced. Great company and employees. Thanks Vortex !
