Impervious to Mother Nature's wrath - the Viper R/T Tactical 8x28 from Vortex is a field-worthy pocket-sized binocular with a bounty of assets. Considering its ability to deliver accurate true-to-life color and high-resolution views in all locations and under any conditions, this Viper is destined to be chosen by enlightened observers as their 'first-up' or 'go-to' binocular. Soldiers and hunters can range objects of a known dimension with the R/T ranging reticle - four human silhouettes are provided for use as a secondary ranging aid.
The Viper R/T 8x28 is small, yet potent - the combination of XD lenses and XR multicoating significantly enhance the viewers ability to locate and identify subjects, targets, and game. The high-performance roof prisms are fully phase-corrected to ensure maximum light transmission, clarity, and contrast. The entire system is purged and sealed to maintain its integrity against the onslaught of terror wreaked by snow, rain, and dust. The Viper R/T also features a scratch-resistant ArmorTek coating applied to the exterior lens surfaces. Finally - a durable and tactile rubberized coating offers a positive grip, and some extra bump-protection.
The views will be spectacular whether it's raining or the sun is out, and this Viper disappears into a pocket or pouch in an instant. What more could one ask for?
