Vortex R385 overview

  • 1Description

The Vortex Optics 8.5x32 Raptor Binocular provides a pronounced 8.5x magnification combined with a relatively wide 7.4° field of view in a water and fogproof housing. Because of its Porro prism design, it presents a particularly three-dimensional image thanks to the distance of the objectives being wider than the distance between your eyes. This unit's very short 50mm minimum interpupillary distance means it is great for children and adolescents, who often have difficulty achieving a singular circular image from a normal binocular with a longer minimum interpupillary distance.  A great choice for viewing stadium sports action.

The 8.5x32 Raptor comes with Vortex's wonderful "VIP" warranty that is no-fault, transferable, and free of paperwork.

Water and fogproof Porro prism design
Wide 390' field of view at 1000 yards
50-70mm interpupillary distance adjustment range makes for an ideal unit for children's eyes
Twist-up style eyecups

    Vortex R385 reviews

    8.5x32 Raptor Binocular is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best at this price bar none I use my Raptors for Bird watching and also own 2 pairs of roof prism's as well, the best of my roof's cost over $and are a well known Japanese make, pity the Raptor's are better if I had tried them before purchasing the roof;s I could have saved a lot of cash.Far better at controling chromatic abrasions, better depth of field, better contrast, the one problem is with the closeness of the focusing, the roof's focus to 6 feet the Raptors to 15 feet but for the price I can live with it.Impressive build quality added to the Vortex warranty makes buying these binoculars a no brainer, if you need a good all around binocular buy Raptors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge bang for the Buck Ive used these for sevral seasons and I alway see what im looking at. Low light is great, ive seen hogs at night and deer in the field early A.M. They are lite and hit adult and children face very good. The extending eye peace is awsome really lets you get settled in. I do wish the right eye focus would lock, somtimes it gets turned pulling out of backpacks at night. All in all they are great really clear and worth more than Vortex is asking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Talk about getting more bang for your buck! I received these binocs as a Christmas gift last year and I am blown away but the quality for the price. When I found out how much they had cost after using them the first time I was amazed. The glass is very clear for this price range. I normally have a hard time using "normal" binoculars but all those issues went away with the adjustments that can be made. I recommended these to anyone looking for a high quality/low price binocs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT Mid-Sized Binocular for the Price! This is a great purchase. �It is mid-sized and fits smaller hands and faces very well. �Water Proof and Fog Proof and very clear. �It is not Zeiss quality, but very well made for the price. �Do not hesitate to purchase these! �Comes with soft case, strap, and lens caps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex user for life I bought these to replace a cheaper brand and even though they are lower magnification I believe that they provide more magnification as I can see things with these that I couldn't with the other brand. Will be buying more Vortex products in the future.
