The 15x50 Viper HD Binocular from Vortex is a versatile rugged binocular delivering accurate lifelike color and high-resolution under any condition. The combination of high density (HD) extra-low dispersion lens elements and XR anti-reflective optical coatings significantly enhances the viewers' ability to locate and identify subjects, targets, and game. The dielectric-coated roof prisms are fully phase-corrected to ensure maximum light transmission, clarity, and contrast. The entire system is purged and sealed to withstand snow, rain, and dust. A durable and tactile rubberized coating offers a positive grip, and light shock protection.

          The older I get the harder it is for me to see. This is my 6th pair of binos with most of the others in the 10x42 range. I wanted a pair with more magnification for my truck and while on stand. These are about what I expected. Not as clear as my Khales or Swarovski, but were a lot easier on my wallet. You get what you pay for when it comes to glass.

              Comments about Vortex 15x50 Viper HD Binocular:

              It had been YEARS since I had purchased new binoculars but I was looking for something smaller (lighter) than what I was used to using. I went to my local Sporting Goods store and compared these side by side with Nikon, and Swarovski. I was not at all familiar with the Vortex brand but the sales guy was very knowledgeable and highly recommended these. My 45 year old eyes could see a big difference between these and all other brands including Nikon. When I looked at comparable Swarovski Binoculars the Swarovski's were slightly better. I'll tell you this though, they were not $1000 better. These are sharp and clear even out to the edge. Love the warranty. I think they are a really good value for the money. Oh, I am not sure how to say this but if you are looking at an object say 90 yards away and you are focused at 90 yards and you want to see something 100 yards away you have to SLIGHTLY focus the binos. It seems you have to focus a lot at smaller distances than binoculars I have had in the past. Like a camera with a low "F" stop. Hope I am making my meaning clear here. I absolutely DO recommend this binoculars and in fact, I am going to start looking at other Vortex products....can't beat their warranty!

              A Last, a Good, Light Weight 15x50 binoc

              Comments about Vortex 15x50 Viper HD Binocular:

              These really reach out and grab information. The field of view and brightness are not on par with an alpha 8x42, of course, so these could be better for twilight use and don't compare in that regard to my 16x70 or 10x70 Fujinons, but the optics are excellent, being bright, sharp and contrasty for daylight use with some fall off at the edges (mostly due to curvature of field). Only two binoculars today don't have that problem, the Swarovski 10x42 Swarovision and the Nikon 10x42 EDG, both about $[$] list. Depth of field is minimal and focusing is and needs to be precise, which some might find difficult. Focusing is a tad stiff, however, but it is not a problem. Your copy might differ. What is great is good 15X optics in a relatively light weight, small and hand holdable package. Bracing helps but beyond that I feel no need for a tripod. Of all my 16 or so binoculars, including top alpha binoculars by Swarovski, Bushnell and Nikon, these and my Bushnell 12.5x50's get the most use, in reverse order. You can simply get more information about what you are looking at with good powerful binoculars.

                Optical quality is very high. Only time will tell about the mechanical quality but after a couple of weeks it seems very good.

                Fifteen power binos are not for everyone, everyday. I bought them for spotting and identifying wildlife at long distances in more open ground situations. While not lightweight, they rode well over a four-five mile rough ground hike, which surprised me.

                Comments about Vortex 15x50 Viper HD Binocular:

                I recently purchased these binoculars for an upcoming mule deer hunt, and I have thus far been quite satisfied with them. All one must do is pick them up to feel and see the quality construction. They focus effectively, they have excellent clarity even out to the edge of the field-of-view, and they have very good light-gathering qualities. The only thing about these binoculars that could be better is the eye relief. For glasses wearers, it is a little difficult to get the full field-of-view without pressing them quite firmly against your face. The field-of-view is optimized without glasses in place. They are comfortable to use for long glassing sessions, and I don't notice eye fatigue or irritation even when using them for several hours at a time. Overall, you can't beat these binos for the price. They are of the highest quality, work exceedingly well for glassing areas about 1-3 miles distant with good clarity and stability, and are backed with an unbeatable warranty. You can't go wrong with these binos!
