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.

    10x50 Viper HD Binocular is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 20.
    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 Excellent glass at an excellent price Bought myself a set of Viper HD binos last year and am blown away by how much clearer they are than the older Leupold and Bushnell binos I have. I had tried them out in the store but did get a real sense of how much better they were until I hit the field. Spent 20+ days in the field deer and elk hunting this year and these binos never let me down even in the worst conditions. Couple that with the peace of mind that comes with the warranty offered by Vortex and it's a no brainier, Vortex is hands down my go to glass company.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional optics I bought my kids a pair of 10x26 vanquish bino's last year. Old dad is getting a new pair of binoculars this year. I was throughly impressed with the vanquish, but the Viper HD are really impressive. The glass is clear to the edges with generous eye relief. You can tell the the HD glass and larger objective lens capture more light. It really makes for clear, well defined, images. No other manufacturer can offer this quality at this price point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down best glass out there! I made the switch over to the Viper HD 10x50 from the Leupold Mojave 10x50, and honestly wish I would have made the switch over years ago! These binos are the best binos that have ever been pulled up to my eyes. Clear, crisp and let a lot of light in so you can see those big bucks during the "golden 30" right before dark. Quality + Dependability = Vortex

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never been happier Vortex is my go to for glass! Without a doubt it is reliable, glass is very clear eye relief is perfect for those long glassing sessions we do here in utah. I love that they keep their end of the deal for the life time warranty! Even if something fails on my binos I know I can send it back and get a new one! Way to keep killing it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Binos I have had the Viper HD 10x50 for a couple seasons now. I could not be happier with them. They are awesome glass and always perform when I need them to. They are also very durable. Mine don’t just sit in my truck. I use them hard and they have held up better than I could hope.

    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.
