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

  • 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

  • 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.

Very good quality.

  • Summary: Excellent optics and overall quality if a little heavy with a cumbersome case. But no regrets in my purchase. No real criticism and would recommend to anyone wanting an overall pair of 'bins'. Not a pair you can slip in your pocket easily.
