Vortex 10x42 Viper HD Roof Prism Binoculars

The 10x42 Viper HD Roof Prism Binoculars feature premium optics and rugged construction in a tremendously compact, lightweight package. The Viper HD binoculars are an optical masterpiece, giving hunters, shooters and outdoor enthusiasts a premium option without the premium price tag. The HD optical system delivers stunning resolution, color fidelity and edge-to-edge clarity. Lenses with XR PLUS Fully Multi-Coating provide critical low light performance by enhancing light transmission to you for more game-spotting opportunities.

Optical Features

Vortex 10x42 Viper HD Roof Prism Binoculars feature HD (High Density) extra-low dispersion glass that delivers impressive resolution and color fidelity, resulting in crystal clear high definition images. Vortex's proprietary XR Fully Multi-Coating is applied on all air-to-glass surfaces to vastly improve and increase light transmission. Multi-Layer Dielectric Prism Coatings provide bright, clear, color-accurate images while phase correction coating enhances the roof prism's resolution and contrast.

Construction Features

The Vortex Optics Viper HD features waterproof O-ring seals to prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating the binocular to give you consistent, reliable performance in all environments. Fogproof argon gas purging prevents internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures. Exterior lenses are protected by ArmorTek, which is an ultra-hard, scratch-resistant coating that protects exterior lenses from scratches, oil and dirt. The rubber armored exterior provides a secure, non-slip grip, and durable external protection. A lightweight, short-hinge design gives you improved ergonomics and handling so that you can keep on going after hours of exploring. From a physical size and weight perspective, these binoculars are one of the lightest, most compact, full-size binos on the market.

Convenience Features

10x42 Viper HD binoculars feature adjustable eyecups that you can move up and down for precise, intermediate settings to maximize your custom fit for comfortable viewing with or without eyeglasses. A center focus wheel adjusts the focus of both binocular barrels at the same time and dials in your image for sharp viewing. A locking diopter adjusts for differences in a user's eyes; one is located on the right eyepiece. The 10x42 Viper HD is compatible with a tripod adapter, allowing use on a tripod or car window mount.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex Warranty can't be beat! I bought a pair of Eagle Optics Ranger 8x42 on 9/8/2001. They accompanied me on innumerable hikes and kayak trips. I didn't abuse them, but they got knocked around plenty in all the usual ways. Finally, after over 22 years of service, the part of the right barrel holding the objective lens came loose, so I emailed Vortex to see if it could be repaired. I promptly got a response from Kathy in VIP Care enthusiastically inviting me to send them in and even providing a mailing label so there was no shipping. cost to me. Within two weeks, I received a note that my old binocs could not be repaired, along with a brand new Viper 8x42 HD, with a note of thanks. When Vortex says "UNLIMITED. UNCONDITIONAL. LIFETIME WARRANTY." believe it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO glad I called Vortex! I chose my Vortex Fury binox in 2009 for viewing animals on an African safari after the store owner said they were the best for low light, and the ones he'd take. They were magnificent then and always, but fourteen years later my beloved Furies are battered, cracked and - from the latest fumble - the right eyepiece no longer dialed back in. I called Vortex for repair advice and was dumbfounded to learn of their essentially bulletproof-lifetime-no-receipt-needed warranty. I mailed them off to Vortex and today a brand-new in-the-box pair of Vipers arrived! I can hardly believe my luck. Not only the best binox ever. The best warranty ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good mid range glass with great features Nice glass. catch it on sale and a good value. I bought for squirrel hunting to spot barking squirrels the eye can’t see before they run thru the tree tops. I don’t glass for long periods of time so I didn’t need alpha glass. The warranty can’t be beat and I am hard on things so a major reason for the purchase.
