The 8x42 Razor HD Binoculars from Vortex are smaller, lighter, brighter, and stronger than ever before. They are a versatile optic that is ideal for multiple applications from close to long-distance observation. Their lightweight construction and high optical performance make them an extremely desirable viewing instrument.

The binoculars render views in high contrast with accurate color through the use of high-density (HD) extra-low dispersion (ED) glass, an apochromatic lens configuration, XR Plus lens coatings, and dielectric and phase-correcting prism coatings, which raise the level of optical excellence for these roof prism binoculars. The benefits include excellence in color sharpness, coating durability, overall performance, increased resolution, color fidelity, clarity, brightness, and greater light transmission. Additional lens protection from scratches, oil, and dust is provided by the ArmorTek exterior lens coating.

The Razor HD is argon filled and sealed with O-rings to ensure reliable and durable protection against dust, debris, fog, and water. The binoculars are rubber armored for non-slip and durable protection, and is equipped with a large focusing knob that is easy to use even while wearing gloves. Naturally contoured to perfectly fit your hands, promoting comfort and eliminating user fatigue, with the Razor HD Vortex has once again created a winning combination of features.
