The 8.5x50 Diamondback Binocular from Vortex excels in the field thanks to its exceptional light gathering ability and 21.5mm eye relief, making this handheld optic ideal for hunting and birding. It also offers modern advantages such as textured rubber armor, soft helicoid eyecups, and argon gas purging.  The Diamondback series features sculpted contours that fit easily in-hand. This all-purpose binocular is for those who prefer higher magnification for distant objects. Additionally, the 9 foot minimum focus distance enables relatively close-up observation of butterflies and other natural beauties within your field of view.

Phase corrected roof prisms render bright images that are color-faithful and rich in detail.
Fully multicoated optics transmit contrast-rich images with minimal glare and internal reflection.
Argon purged and o-ring sealed housing delivers superior waterproof and fogproof protection from the elements.
Close focuses to under 10 feet, excellent for birding and other nature observations.
Twist-up multi-position rubber eyecups provide enhanced comfort, especially for eyeglass wearers.
Ridged rubber armoring results in superior grip even in wet conditions.
Tripod, monopod, and car window-mountable with optional adapter.

    Comments about Vortex 8.5x50 Diamondback Binocular:

    I got these for the boat. The 50 mm ocular gathers a ton of light! They are crisp and clear from side to side, comparable to my zeiss that I use for birding, etc. Great eye relief, and the twist eye cups are excellent, adjust them to your needs. Close focus down to 9 feet, for real! Only issue I have is eye width, if you're small you might have trouble getting width narrow enough for you.

    Overall, a great set of glasses and with a no-fault lifetime warranty, a great value!
