    Posted by on 2018 Jan 22nd

    Great optics and for the money compares to the higher priced binoculars. Plus you can't beat vortex's warranty. I also received a vortex harness for free. Urbannaturestore was a pleasure to deal with, with fast delivery and backed my binoculars well. Win win in every situation!

    I like my new binoculars, first birding binocs I have had. Seems very easy to use and very clear. Will have to use them longer in order to give a proper evaluation

  5. Absolutely fantastic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2017 Apr 24th

    Check out process was smooth. Delivery was very fast and well packed. Product itself is excellent; I've already put it to good use a few times! I was sharing with others who also noted the high quality. Very compact but great crystal clear vision for the binoculars. The grip is great. Definitely high quality. Couldn't be happier with the whole experience.

  6. Wow 5 Star Review

    Wow! This is the first decent pair of binocs I've had, just couldn't bring myself to spend the money. Tested and looked through numerous others before I settled on Vortex. Fantastic warranty, excellent clarity. My buddies seem to want to borrow my "HD's"! well worth the investment.

  7. Great Optics! 5 Star Review

    Best pair of binoculars under $2000 there is! Rival optics costing much more!

  8. Simply Awesome 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2015 Mar 13th

    I own several other binoculars. Nikon, Leupold and Bushnell to name a few. These 8X42 Viper HDs blow them away. I will never purchase any thing but Vortex optics in the future.

  9. Vortex Rocks!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2015 Mar 13th

    Compared a lot of there Binoculars in the $600 price range and these were an easy choice. Clarity, color, focus, weight, and the unmatched customer service. First vortex product iv owned and not the last. Had the label on the focus wheel come off and these guys sent one out, 10 minutes after I sent the email. Best customer service out there. They do not ignore any of there customers.

  10. Amazing Optics 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2015 Mar 13th

    The Viper 8x42's are a wonderful set of bino's. The durability built into them is unparalleled. The locking eye piece is a great feature and allows you piece of mind that it won't move unless you want it to. The clarity, edge to edge, of the optics in this price range are wonderful. A best buy in this price range!
