They are not. Vortex are Chinese of Japanese. These are Chinese.

There are no American binocular. One brand assembles foreign parts here and calls it American.

Not sure what you are looking for, but budget 12x is useless. The 8x42 Diamondbacks are fine. Try Vortex Viper 10x42. Made in Japan.

hey ET,

I'm looking for a binoculars as a gift for my uncle, who likes to camping and hunting. The Vipor is a bit over my budget. I think I'll go with Steiner Binoculars 12x40 Predator Professional.

Anyway, thank you for your time and the advice :D

Hi

I'm not a big fan of 12x, but the Steiner is otherwise a nice choice for the money
