Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not left in the Dark! This is my third peice of kit from vortex. I had many possible choices but kept coming back to Vortex eventually buying these puppies. They are simply put awesome. I wanted a good set of binos for pushing the limits of my hunting day ie. low light conditions early morning late day. These fit the bill I am not disappointed once again by a vortex purchase. I also know that vortex has all or backs when things go south with our gear. I have used their VIP warranty for one of my scopes and found it was a no hassle fast turn around to get me back hunting asap. Thanks guys for your products and your support of us out here in the field. You make awesome products that stand up to the many actualities of use in the real world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex does it again I had bought my kids each a pair of vanquish 10x26 binoculars. I was so pleased with the quality, it was Dads time and purchased the viper HD 10x50. Simply amazing glass in the viper. Clear to the edges, light pick up in low light is great. I have owned and used many brands of binoculars in my private use and military career. None have given me this kind of performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great binos for the money Picked up a pair of viper HD 10x50 and was immediately impressed by the quality of the construction. They feel great in your hands and it’s obvious there are no shortcuts taken with these binoculars. Once you get them out of the box they really shine, I have used cheap binos for years and always felt that there was not that much of a difference between and $100 pair and a $1000 pair, I was way wrong. I had my cheap pair for comparison and it was no contest, at about 100 yards I could look at a sweetgum tree and see leaves with my standard binos, with my vortex binos you see the veins in each individual leaf, once you get out farther than that the difference becomes more apparent. Where I would normally see a blob of grass you see each individual blade. Great product, the warranty speaks for itself, these are super affordable for what you are getting in quality, you can’t hunt what you can’t find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Glass I was looking to upgrade my binos and was looking at the Vipers and another brand’s “similar” model. I went to the local sporting goods shop and asked to take them outside at dusk. The Vipers hands down outperformed the competition, better low light visibility and clarity and all around felt like better quality. I’ll be buying Vortex for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing clarity I bought these to use on my exotic game ranch. We use Binos everyday and many times at night looking for predators. The image clarity and light gathering is amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Glass Just bought these Bono’s a few days ago. Huge upgrade from my previous pair that were “hand me downs.” The glass is awesome. I had a hard time deciding between the Diamondbacks and the Vipers. I just had a hard time seeing the difference between the two besides cost and a few coatings on the Vipers vs the Diamondbacks. One reason I decided to go with the Vipers was the Glass pack that comes with the Bono’s. Unfortently the pair I purchased from my retailer had older packaging so I got a nice case but it is a shoulder case and not a chest harness. I called vortex customer service and they wouldn’t send my the glass pack or even trade. Pretty disappointed, but it’s not their fault the retailer hadn’t moved through inventory. I’m still happy with the Bino’s just had to go spend more money to get a case for hunting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clarity unparalleled by others of similar price ra Best binoculars I’ve owned , my buddies have high end gear but I couldn’t afford similar . I had heard about the VIP warranty , the robust manufacturing and I had to try them , only thing separating mine from my buddies Binos are the badges on them ! I wish I could have bought a pair of Razors coz I’d have had the upper hand on my buddies ! They perform out on wet muddy mornings on the foreshore and I use them all season spotting ducks coming from mikes out !
