Vortex 8x42 Diamondback HD Roof Prism Binoculars with GlassPak Harness Case

The Vortex 8x42 Diamondback HD Roof Prism Binoculars provide superior optical performance with high durability. It comes with fully multi-coated optics that deliver the highest performance images on the market for an amazingly low price. The highly-reflective multi-layer roof prisms combined with multi-coated glass lenses provide the best optical performance. This pair of optics offer up to 8x magnification and ultra-wide field of view of 330 feet at 1,000 yards – making them suitable for large to mid-range activities

Optical Construction

The Vortex Diamondback HD Binoculars utilize an HD Optical System which is optimized with select glass elements to deliver an exceptional resolution, reduced chromatic aberration producing outstanding color fidelity with edge-to-edge sharpness. The multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces increase light transmission giving you detailed imagery even at low-light surrounding. The Diamondback HD has a multi-layer dielectric prism coating that ensures bright, clear, color-accurate images.

Sturdy and Durable Construction

The Vortex 8x42 Binoculars are extremely lightweight yet tough enough to last through the harshest elements. Thanks to O-ring seals and Argon gas purging, these binoculars offer complete waterproof and fogproof performance against moisture, dust, and debris. Plus, the ArmorTek coating on the exterior surface protects the lenses from scratches, oil and dirt. A rubber armored exterior ensures a secure, non-slip grip for maximum comfort. The binoculars have a rugged construction that withstands recoil and impact.

Designed for Comfort

Vortex 8x42 Binoculars feature adjustable twist-up eyecups that maximize your comfort even when you are wearing eyeglasses. A diopter located on the right eyepiece adjusts for differences in a user's eyes. With the center focus wheel you can easily adjust the focus of both binocular barrels simultaneously. You can also mount these 8x42mm roof prism binoculars on a tripod or car window mount using a tripod adapter.

Included GlassPak Binocular Harness

Protect your binoculars with the GlassPak Binocular Harness. It is an ideal way to secure your binos. It comes handy with a large protective case that keeps your binoculars safe from dirt, dust, and other types of damage. Adjustable tethers and straps allow for a comfortable carry experience. The case also features additional mesh pockets that are perfect as fast-access storage for your small accessories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from vip warranty Best I've ever seen. never a problem or questions about fixing or replacing anything. great service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Optics!! Excellent performance and ergonomics. Tack sharp images with little to no chromatic aberration over the entire field over view. Excellent low light performance. I use these binoculars for serious birding under low/poor lighting and they deliver every bit of the same performance as the Razor HD models for less money investment. I'm very hard pressed to see any difference between these and a competitor's ED binoculars. These will be used for bird watching during the dawn and dusk hours as well as for some astronomical viewing of the brighter deep sky objects. A fantastic addition to my binocular collection!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Binos I have used these for two seasons and they work really well for scanning heavy cover out to 300 meters particularly in low light situations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So nice I bought 2 My wife and I decided to go to Alaska on a land and sea cruise. We went to our local big box outdoor store and looked at the options. We had planned on sharing a "really nice" set of binoculars. After comparing our options, we walked out with 2 sets. When in Denali, on a tour, we watched a grizzly bear and her 3 cubs clearly eating blueberries. We were also able to make out Dahl sheep at extremely long range and seals and otters in glacier bay. I cant speak to the warrantee because I haven't had any issues, but as for the clarity of the optics, it is exceptional for the price.
