Vortex Diamondback 8x42

by stenmon, from United States, AZ Written on January 25, 2015
Great glass for the money. Shipping was prompt. I have purchased from Optics Planet before and would do so again. I believe Vortex Optics are a great value for the money. These binos could easily have cost twice the amount....
Pros:
  • price, quality, rugged
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes

Mr larry bee

Great binocs took them on a several bird hikes. Work well with glasses and have a real solid feel. Also sharp images and a lifetime warranty. Lens covers are always attached if you wish and the eye lense covers are easy to remove and attach. The only problem I had was attaching the strap to the binoculars. That could just be my abilities....

Great Viewing Vortex Diamondback 8x42mm Binoculars

by Rick East, from Australia Written on October 24, 2014
Very comfortable for viewing and magnificent magnification, "when your wife has a look through your new binoculars and says "how good are these" they are definitely in my hunting kit. Only problem I found, was when threading the neck strap it would not go through the opening, but with a bit of fishing line and needle problem was solved.Great product highly recommended....
Pros:
  • Very well made
  • Lightweight and comfortable.
  • Great value.
  • Don't have to wear glasses
Cons:
  • none... yet

Well done

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 15, 2014
Very nice binoculars. I was going to buy the Nikon Monarch 5 8x42 binoculars, but the sales person sold me on the gaurantee and the cost difference. The only con is that connecting the strap to the binoculars and getting them adjusted took me an hour. Not bad though, since now they are set for life.
Pros: overall quality and price
Cons: set-up...

Diamondbacks

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 20, 2014
Awesome product, Great delivery and service from Opticsplanet, wont shop anywhere else. These binos are the best choice for outdoorsmen, felt much nicer than Nikon or Zeiss Terra, and cheaper. Vortex warranty is unbeatable!
Pros: Perfect balance

Top notch optics even against other hundreds more

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 2, 2014
Bought these for astronomy, they gather a lot of light, super clarity, easy to use due to huge FOV,they are easily better than binos hundreds of more.

Vortex doesn't need to markup extra dollars like Nikon, Steiner, Zeiss, Bushnell due to brand imaging - Vortex just keeps the cost down and invests in quality products.
Pros: Superior optics,huge FOV, pupil distance
Cons: NONE...
Would recommend: Yes

Great product, buy somewhere else if you need it fast

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WA Written on November 11, 2013
Great product. I love these, the knob for the focus started out a little stiff, but now is great, they stayed fog/water proof inside, even in terrible weather and the clarity is amazing for the price you pay!

My only problem is with Optics Planet. They shipped FedEx, which is fine, but FedEx handed it off to USPS and it took 3 or 4 more days than it should have. I almost missed my hunting trip because of it. That would have infuriated me. With the price being the exact same at Sportsmans Warehouse, i wish i would have just bought these amazing bino's there and saved some stress. 9 days shipping is inexcusable, i don't care if it was free.
Pros: clarity, waterproof, price
Cons: price same on OP than in stores...

Vortex Diamondback Binoculars D248

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on October 1, 2013
Bought these on the impressive reviews and couldn't be more pleased. How much more could a person want in a pair of binoculars than these for the money. The vortex warranty probably the best there is. Vortex for me from now on....

Vortex Diamondback 8X42

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on July 23, 2013
Have checked out many, many bino's-less expensive to 4 times the price. For my money these are the best bino's out there. I use them for elk and deer hunting in Colorado. Clarity is beyond excellent. The guarantee is far above any other. My recommendation: buy these for a lifetime of use!
Pros: Clarity
Cons: None...
