For Birdwatching
Vortex Optics Viper HD

VIPER HD 8×42 is one of the best Vortex binoculars because it is one of the lightest, full-powered, yet compact models available in the market today. These are ideal for hunting. Made to endure long-lasting performance even in the most challenging environments, its lenses are protected by proprietary, ultra-hard, scratch-resistant coating, ArmorTek. The body has a non-slip grip, so it won’t easily break if you accidentally drop it.

Filled with argon gas and sealed with O-ring sealing, it offers fogproof and waterproof capabilities. Moisture and dust won’t easily penetrate the binoculars, giving you the confidence you need in the extreme outdoors.

With premium extra-low dispersion (ED) glass, the VIPER HD 8×42 delivers quality images in the most accurate colors possible. For reduced light loss during transmission, it is built with XR fully multi-coated optics. All air-to-glass surfaces have multiple anti-reflective coatings to ensure optimal light transmission. Moreover, the phase-correction coating offers enhanced contrast and resolution.

It is compatible with a tripod adapter for your convenience, enabling you to mount it on either a car window mount or a tripod. You can definitely bring it to all your adventures, thanks to the GlassPak Binocular Harness with tethers you can attach to the binoculars. This accessory lets you keep your binoculars safe and secure at all times, and allows you to use them as marine binoculars.
