Best binocular

Great binocular. Very clear, sharp and bright image. Compared to Swarovski el range 10x42 you can’t tell anything different from the day light.Good quality binocular for that price.

Vortex Viper HD 10x42 binoculars - Value for money

20 April 2023
I purchased a pair of these binoculars to supplement my pocket binoculars, an ageing pair of Swarovski 8x20s. I'm a professional zoologist and being able to quickly identify a bird, mammal or reptile at a distance is a critical part of my work. These rugged, waterproof binoculars have a bright field of view, precise focusing (including close focusing) and combined with the relatively light weight and razor sharp optics make these binoculars an outstanding choice for the money. You CAN get slightly better binoculars, but you'll pay twice as much, and you certainly won't get twice the quality. My wife, who is also my business partner, became quickly dissatisfied with the "pocket" binoculars after looking through the Vortex Viper HDs, and so I have ordered another pair. I'm very happy with these binoculars and delighted with the customer service provided by Great Escape Camping.
