Vortex Viper HD 10x42 Binocular

From Mary Jo A. in Illinois:

5/5 Rating

The best binoculars I've had so far...

My advice to beginner birders: don't waste your money on cheap and inferior binoculars.  This Vortex Viper HD 10x42 Binocular is the fifth pair of binoculars that I have purchased, and I think I've finally gotten JUST what I wanted/needed.

When I think about the $$$ I wasted on bins that were less than desirable, I could have saved so much money by purchasing a good pair to begin with.  I like the size, weight, clarity, etc. of these.  I can view birds better than I have ever been able to before.

The only criticism that I can come up with is that the focus knob is a bit stiff to move, especially when it's cold and/or if you have gloves on.  But that's a minor complaint and I am very happy with these binoculars.


  1. Yes, this is the best one to me also. Truly I have seen lots of binoculars but didn't see anyone like this because it has some fabulous features and quality as well. So I will tell to others that if anyone wants to buy binoculars then this one will be the best one for ever:)
