Powerful enough for distant observation yet capable of glassing subjects just 6' away, the 12x50 Crossfire HD Binoculars from Vortex are a high-powered optic with a large objective lens that admits ample light for a bright image. They can be mounted on a tripod with a separately sold adapter for the steadiest view or hands-free use. A Vortex GlassPak harness is included for comfortable use during hours of observation.

The Crossfire HD delivers views with minimal chromatic aberration, exceptional color fidelity, edge-to-edge sharpness, and optimal light transmission through the use of high definition glass, an index-matched lens configuration, XR Plus anti-reflective coating, and phase-correcting roof prisms. Birders will appreciate their 6' close-focus distance for observing nearby birds, animals or insects. The housing is nitrogen-filled for fog and waterproof performance, and rubber armored for a non-slip grip. The short bridge provides plenty of space for your hands, and the large focusing knob is easy to use, even while wearing gloves. Twist-down eyecups accommodate users who wear glasses.
