The entire system is argon-purged and O-ring sealed for waterproof, fogproof, and dustproof performance, and the lenses bear ArmorTek coating for protection from scratching, oil, and dirt.

Vortex VPR-5010-HD reviews

10x50 Viper HD Binocular is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful performance for price ! Recently bought the Vortex Viper 10x50 HD and was really impressed by the performance of this pair of binoculars. Sharp images with almost perfect colours and contrast. I compared the Vipers with my Swarovski EL 10x50 Swarovision which according to me is the best 10x50 binoculars at present. And to my surprise the Vipers are almost there with repect to overall performance. The Vipers beat the Swaros in weight, they are 195 grams lighter than the ELs. They have a rugged feel in the hands. Overall a superb pair of Binoculars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro-Level Binocs Before settling on these I tried a pair of Vortex 10x42 Diamondbacks, which are also really nice binocs for the money. I decided I wanted higher-end glass, and also improved low light performance for bird & wildlife watching in the deep woods, so I settled on a pair of these 50mm Vipers. The HD glass is a noticeable upgrade, and the large 50mm lenses gather more light (although I found the difference over 42mm to be not really noticeable under normal daylight conditions). The 50mm lenses make for a slightly larger and heavier set of binocs, but I'm 6'2 and find these fit my hands better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Binoculars Used these on my Montana Mule Deer hunting trip & they worked great. I would recommend them as an alternative to those other extremely expensive brands. True that are not quite as good but given the price a value purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great binoculars! Very sharp clear image, brilliant colors.� Pretty heavy and bulky but great for watching the bird feeder from the house.
