Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won't disappoint Bought the razor 10x42 three years ago after vigorously comparing all the major brands, overall vortex lenses were the clearest of any other brand except Swarovski. But in price vs. quality vortex blew the other competition out of the water, and then considering the warranty there wasn't much of a competition. I tend to be hard on all my hunting gear and these binos have not only withstanded all the abuse I have put on them but they have made me a better hunter. The only complaint I have is my eye cups have loosened over the past month but after hunting season I will be sending the back for repair thanks to the peace of mind warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Decision I have owned several pairs of Vortex Optics (Bino's, Scope, and Rangefinder) and have been pleased with them all. The quality of the binoculars is top end and I have had no issues that I did not cause with any of them. The customer service is even better than the products they sell. I have always been taken care of when I have to call up to have something repaired. The repairs I have required have all been my own fault, dropping them on cement will bend an extended eye cup. Scratching the lens things of that nature. It doesn't matter what I did they are helpful and friendly combine that with the top end products they make and I can't think of a reason not to recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new HD's I bought my Vortex Razor HD 10x42 two weeks ago. I previously owned a 12 year old pair of Cascades, and I can tell you that the Vortex Razors blow those out of the water. I was skeptical about spending as much money as these were, but boy they are worth every penny. I was hunting for 3 days in every condition possible in the mountains of Montana. Not once did these binoculars fail me. We hunted hard for 3 days, in heavy terrain, crazy weather, and hundreds of active elk. Loved being able to deal with them all and not having to worry about the conditions that my binoculars were being exposed to. They worked perfectly.
