Very decent binos

  • Excerpt: Good clarity even in low light conditions. I however, favor smaller binoculars. I will be looking at their 8x32 and 10x32 versions. The interpupillary distance adjustment seems a little difficult towards the low end. The brand name shinny dysplay might scare off wildlife.
  • Pros: Good value, Great Warranty

Very Clear and Easy to Use

  • Excerpt: I liked that the front and back covers are attached and easy to take off quickly. Easy to see, very clear. Only negative is that they are heavy. I think the Nikons are a few ounces less. But for the price, I think these are very good binos.
  • Pros: Quality Lenses
  • Cons: Heavy

Unintrusive, solid

  • Excerpt: The Straps are easily adjustable, the split rings and swivels seem solid (but I wish the swivels were metal or polycarb). The leather piece is a nice touch. Overall I can barely tell it's there when I'm wearing it, which is exactly as it should be. Very light, good features to prevent twisting.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy to install / use, Lightweight

Ideal for thrifty outdoorsmen

Hiking Houstonian, B&H Photo
19 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased this binocular for birding after getting fed-up with the fogging and subpar image quality of the cheap compact one I started out with. As expected, the image quality and brightness are much better, and I find that the increased weight helps to steady my hands a bit. I was pleasantly surprised by the color, which looked olive drab online but is more of a forest green in real life.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Quality Lenses, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Difficult To Focus

Vortex Razor focusing wheel

  • Summary: I found the Vortex Razor 8x42 binoculars to be among the very best I've ever experienced in all respects but one. The pros are numerous: astonishingly bright and sharp image; well balanced and proportioned; The eye relief adjustments are perfect for use with or without glasses; The weight is surprisingly light allowing one to easily hold for prolonged periods while studying a subject.

Vortex Diamondback 8x42 Binocular

Stephen, binocularreviews.org

  • Excerpt: I just bought this pair of binoculars from Eagle Optics. They were delivered two days after my purchase; GREAT! I started narrowing my search to American optics companies - Vortex met that criteria. Then I read tons of reviews on which magnification for bird watching - since that's what I plan on using my binoculars for. There seemed to be an overwhelming consensus among birdwatchers to go with 8x's.

Pleased with these binos.

  • Summary: Nice clarity for mid range glass. Lightweight yet stable offhand. Well worth the price for this power as most are astronomical in price or size. Will do for mountain or plains game spotting.
