Vortex DB-201 overview

  • 1Description

Combining excellent optical performance with ruggedness, portability, and comfort, the 10x28 Diamondback Binocular from Vortex Optics is ideal to take along on your hiking trips, when camping or traveling, or just in case. The specially designed optics feature improved transmission, contrast, and true color using fully multi-coated lenses and phase-corrected roof prisms. With the improved close focus of 6.5', you will get plenty of focusing range and a sharp focus on faraway scenery as well as close-ups of nearby street signs, monuments' details, or wildlife. The combination of 10x magnification and the 28mm objectives offers you a generous 5.1° angle of view that gives you good coverage of your targets.

The lightweight aluminum housing is purged with argon gas and sealed with O-rings to offer enhanced fog and waterproof performance. The short-hinge bridge is reduced in size, compared to previous generations of Diamondbacks, to cut overall weight and to expose more of tubes' surface for easy holding. To ensure that you have a non-slip grip and tuning, the body, oversized focusing ring, diopter ring, and twist-up soft tapered eyecups have rubberized coverings. The focusing knob and the diopter ring also have knurling for easy use even with gloves on. Also included with the binocular are a carry case, neck strap, rainguard, and tethered objective caps.

    Vortex DB-201 reviews

    10x28 Diamondback Binocular (Green/Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Binoculars This is the newest 2016 revised model of the Vortex Diamondback 10x28 model DB-201. What a super pair of compact binoculars. Was looking for a pair which would be easy to carry but still have decent optics. The 28 mm objective lens are not designed for low light use but they still do a pretty good job given their size. I have optics which cost far greater and do look a little more crisp but for the money, these can't be beat. Great to keep in the truck, boat or UTV for that occasional need to glass the terrain. Two thumbs up !!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Before I buy a product like this I look at the reviews of similar products and judge the best one to go with. Vortex scored high with 4-5 stars throughout their entire product range. These binos are at the lower end of the product range but are superb value. The 10 x 28 has a slightly larger end element than most compacts with good magnification. Optics are clear and bright, focus is crisp and they are small enough to take out on a walk. The lifetime guarantee is a extra bonus. We love them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First rate binocular Very well built, superb optics for the price point. Not too large as to make them a burden to carry. Good for the causal user to view distant objects when traveling or watching nature. Would be perfect to leave in a car or cabin/camper. Vortex hit a home run with these binoculars at this price. A real bargain to say the least.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Binoculars for Specific Situations I was looking to purchase my first set of quality binoculars and went with the Diamondback 10x28. I took them out antelope hunting and enjoyed the clarity and quality. There were times I struggled to keep still enough to focus if I wasn't resting my arms on something. I think this had more to do with my eyesight than the product. I ended up trading them in and upgrading to the Diamondback 10x42, which have been excellent as well. I wouldn't hesitate to use these 10x28's for bowhunting or turkey hunting or when the ultra compact size is a benefit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic quality and price! I bought these binoculars 3 years ago and I’ve never regretted it. Wearing glasses makes it difficult to find a pair of Bono’s that allows me to see clearly and be comfortable to use. Vortex has made a great product with an amazing warranty that anyone should be ecstatic to own! They will have my business for all my optics needs!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Archery Hunting I bought these specifically for archery hunting. They are nice, small, and lightweight. I hunt some brushy areas and sometimes it's critical to look at some sticks to see if there are antlers hiding in them. I've spotted multiple elk and deer with these binos and am not disappointed. Great for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, clear and rugged. Perfect for my bow hunts Bought these for the Vip warranty and was blown away by the clear and sharpness of the view I got. Nice and light and easy to pack when chasing game through the brush. Opened my eyes to vortex. Will be making more purchases no doubt. Quality is back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy I recently bought Vortex Diamoundback binoculars, and couldn't be happier. Excellent clarity and quality. I current own 2 other Vortex products the Diamoundback scope and Strikefire II red dot. Another great addition to my Vortex collection.
