Vortex Viper HD 8x32 Binocular

From Phil N. in Van Nuys, CA:

5/5 Rating

Price, size and clarity make it a good value


I got these to fill in the gap in my binocular collection. I have 3 other larger pairs, but no high quality compact pair.

My first useful experience with them was at a concert at the Greek Theatre, an outdoors bowl-type location. We had nosebleed seats, and am I ever glad I brought my along. The case has very useful belt loops, so I could stash 'em there while I went down to get robbed at the beer bar.

Anyways, the clarity of these is high definition. 8x is about the maximum magnification I can hold steady, and I could almost see the nose hairs on the guitarist's face crystal clear. My buddy had some junky little binos, that looked like you were looking thru the bottom of a shot glass.

The price, compact size, and clarity make the a good value if you are looking for high quality compact glass. I imagine they would be good for bird watching too. I love 'em!
