    So far I’m very happy with the Diamondbacks. They are much lighter and less bulky than the Nikon Prostaff ones they are replacing. I haven’t had a chance yet to do a side by side comparison, but it wouldn’t be fair as my Nikon is a few years older and less expensive. In any case I was tired of lugging my old ones up the tree stand because of their weight and how much space they took up in my pack.

    For my purposes, the wide field of view should be very helpful as I use them to scan the woods around the stand – good way to find the squirrels that are pretending to be deer walking around. If we had deer on the property, it would probably also be good for catching them trying to sneak through the brush. Fortunately the neighbors do a good job keeping those pests away. Many of the more expensive binoculars out there have narrower FOV, so another good reason I went with these.

    The included chest harness is the best one I’ve seen yet. The fact that it is sized correctly doesn’t hurt, but it includes snap buckles on the straps, so you can easily disconnect it from the harness if you don’t want to use it. I gave up trying to connect my old harnesses because the metal rings were a huge pain. The pouch itself opens easily with an elastic loop (no velcro to make noise) and the flap can be left to loosely cover the opening or folded back to make it more accessible.

    One of the buckles on the harness came broken out of the box. Amazon put me in touch with their customer service – they had a brand new case sent out which arrived the next day. They included a hat which fits my XXX-Large head (24.75″) and a lens cloth too. I can’t complain about that.

    If I do come up with any complaints after using them this season, I’ll be sure to update this review. Hopefully I won’t have to do that.

    I compared these side by side to three different bushnell binoculars (even 8×42’s) , the picture of these was brighter and far more crisp, by some way.

    I have mild experience with binoculars but a buddy of mine owns a $2.5k pair of Swarovskis (10×50 RF) and the clarity difference between those and these 12×50 HDs is indistinguishable. I also own a pair of 12×25 Bushnell compact and these are worlds above those. These 12×50 DB HDs feel like a quality product in your hands and the Glass Pak is a welcomed accessory with great functionality.

    Received my Vortex Diamondback
    10×50 binoculars
    Very happy with the speed with which I recieved them. However the eye protection cap on the right hand side is broken. I hope that this will replaced

    Wonderful binoculars, I also like that Vortex has essentially changed the optics market for warranties. Vortex was getting very popular due to their stance on a “no questions asked” warranty policy. Now almost all the other manufacturers have come out with their “version” of it. But back to the binos. I bought these about the same time as a coworker bought the Vortex Razor HDs (nearly 4 times the cost of these). We both brought them to work one day and compared them side by side. The winner… obviously the Razor HDs….but not by that much…in my opinion. When first looking through them it was hard to even tell a difference. Both were extremely clear. It was only after going back and forth between them numerous times that you started noticing the differences. The first most noticeable is the field of view. The razor HDs were wider but not by a lot. If you were glassing long distances for hours you would probably appreciate the added area but I don’t, so this wasn’t of much consequence to me. Other than that it was really hard to pick out the differences. Finally after going back and forth (and having several other do the same without previous knowledge on which was more expensive) we could tell a real difference. So I took some paper with varying font sizes on it and set it up across the room. When comparing the two we were able to more clearly see some of the font with the Razor HDs. So with the added field of view and slightly better (perceivable) clarity, the Razor HDs won the side by side comparison…shocker right? But I paid a quarter the price for these and they barely lost the comparison. Every person we had look through both said the same thing. For the money they would go with the diamond backs. In fact several of the people that did the comparison went out and bought the diamond back HDs

    The pair I received were defective right from the box. The middle hinge that keeps them in place just let them fall down. Vortex Qualitycontrol on their lower end products has fallen since they started having them made in China. The American made stuff is still really well made and quality control is on point. Then Vortex wanted me to pay shipping to them on a brand new product right from the box. Literally just opened them. Lucky for me Amazon took them back no questions ask. Maybe my last Vortex optic. 🙁

    I upgraded to the 10×42 diamondback HD from previously using a Leopold Yosemite 10×30.

    I’ve been in the field and tried Vortex Fury HD binos, and had the chance to check out Razors, Vipers, dbacks, and crossfires in the store.

    First words out of my mouth when I looked through the Dback 10×42 HD was “Wow”. Out of all the vortex products I own, this one impressed me the most out of the box.

    I also currently own:
    Razor HD spotting scope 11-33×50
    Viper HS LR 4-16×50
    Viper HS 2.5-10×44
    Dback 4-12×40
    Crossfire 2, 6-24×50

    I have a pair of Bushnell elites paid just shy of $1000. And are spectacular, compared to the much more expensive swaros, at a fraction of the price, perfect for bird watching, so I wanted something with a little more power and read the reviews on the HD Diamondbacks and thought for the money I’d try them out, for brightness they are incredible, on a scale 1-10 for sharpness I’d give it 7.5 -8, as far as value 1-10 I’d give it a solid 10, they are more than sufficient, and lifetime warranty , won’t be my last pair of Vortex

    What a difference a good pair of binoculars make! The clarity, the light, the focus, the ease, the weight, the size are all that I’ve been looking for. I did my homework and found out 8×42 is good for birding, and after reading review after review on various brands, etc., I pulled the trigger and hoped for the best, and I got it! It comes with straps, harness and case. There are even pockets outside the case that holds my cellphone and lens cloth. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.
