Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel the different go HD glass. There is a night VS day different when switching from a good monocular to a great HD binocular like this.The High Density glass(HD) will make the BIG difference when searching coyotes or deer in dry grass or trees during sunrise or sunset hours where some colors blend with shades. Weighing barely 1.5 lbs makes them my to go for hunting or traveling binos for open fields.Out of the box they come with the neckstrap, eyepiece and objective lens covers the best features are the adjustable diopter for different users plus its locking turrets while hunting plus a center focus wheel for sight correction thus preventing early eye fatigue.They are built waterproof fogproof plus the VIP warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Optics are amazing! Took a friend of mine Turkey hunting for the first time this year, we watched from a distance as the birds made their way to their roost. The next morning we set up well before daylight, it was still dark out and I was glassing the treeline looking for the outline of the roosted turkeys and in the lowest light I spotted the birds in the tree with these Vipers. I told my buddy I saw the birds and watched them as they flew down off the roost. He was amazed, he said he could barely make out the decoys we placed just 20 yrs out in front of us, and I was spotting the birds at least 200 yards away through these Viper HD 8 X 42.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another 10 from Vortex I've only had these Viper HD 8x42 for a few days but they are as impressive as the Viper HD 10x50s I've had for a few years! An amazing, high performance optic in a light package that has a neck strap and a chest mount for its case. If there is any negative, its that the chest mount strap for the case is not made for anyone larger than maybe a 2XL. I'm a 3XL and its tight across my t-shirt. Wouldn't work over a jacket. But the optic is fantastic and you cannot beat Vortex customer service and their unlimited lifetime, fully transferable, no questions asked warranty!
