I purchased these binoculars for the 2012 Deer hunting season. They worked great. I was able to harvest two Bucks this season. Clear and worked really well in low light. I was able to start glassing for game well before there was enough light to see with the naked eye. I also wanted to compliment the great Warranty Vortex offers which I had no clue about when I initially purchased my Binoculars. Accidentally dropped and damaged the binoculars on my last hunt. Well built product and the damage occurred when I was unloading my gear and my hunting pack fell out of the truck. All the weight of the fully loaded pack landed just perfect on the binoculars bending the eye guard. Totally user error should of taken more care to pack the binoculars in its proper padded case then store them in the center of my pack instead of the top. Binoculars still functioned and the lenses were in perfect shaped. I contacted Vortex Customer Service to find out pricing for the repairs and where to ship it to. The Customer Service Rep filled me in on the VIP warranty and that they would repair their products free of charge. I get my Binoculars Friday. Its been only been 10 days since I sent them in. Plus with the Christmas break I really cant complain. 100% satisfied with the Product, Service etc. Will definitely be purchasing my Spotting Scope and next Rifle scope from Vortex Optics.
