Excerpt: Delighted I use the Vortex Viper HD 8x42 Binocular mainly for birding. I like the clarity & brightness of the binocular. It is also lightweight. Ordering was fast & easy and I received it within the designated time frame. I had the Viper binocular in time for my birding trip and was delighted to have it along! Other birders in the group tried it and liked these over their current binoculars.
Excerpt: We plan to use these binoculars for locating birds and other wildlife. I especially like the large eyepiece glasses since my wife and I both weareyeglasses. These binoculars have the largest eyepiece glass of any brand Ihave seen on the market. This gives you a maximum field of view when youbring them up to locate a critter in cover or heavy vegetation.
Pros: Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: This is a great binocular that is very well made and the useablity is just fantastic. I really like the texture on this product and the clarity is so sharp it makes you feel you could just reach out and touch what you're looking at.
Excerpt: What can i say except buy these.I looked for a long time and compared a lot binoculars around this price rang and nothing compared. only if you stepped up to a higher end 700.00$$ plus binocular and even then not much difference to warrant spending the extra money. Very bright and have a very good field of view,not to mention the unbeatable warranty.
Excerpt: Excellent binoculars for the price. The large field of view and the crisp sharp images are great for birding and the 4.5 ft minimum focus distance is very useful for identifying plants on nature hikes. Impressive for stargazing,too - star images were sharp and the 8 degree field of view offers a 'wow factor' I don't get with my 10X70 binocs.
