About this product

NEW for 2018
New updated Vortex Viper HD binoculars offer the following improvements over their predecessors:
- Significantly wider field of view!
- Higher quality prisms.
- Higher quality optics.
- Closer focus.
- A little smaller (by about a Mouse's whisker)!
- Slightly heavier (about the weight of a large strawberry)!
They continue to use HD (High Density) extra-low dispersion glass with XR™ anti-reflective coatings for outstanding edge-to-edge clarity.
From a size and weight perspective, the Viper HD binoculars remain one of the lightest, most compact, full-size premium quality binoculars on the market.
Supplied with the versatile Vortex Binocular Harness Pack (GlassPak™) so you can carry the binocular comfortably in it's own protective case, even for long periods of time, ready for use at a moments notice.
- HD Lens Elements: HD (High Density) extra-low dispersion glass delivers impressive resolution and colour fidelity, resulting in High Definition images.
- XR Lens Coatings: Vortex proprietary XR anti-reflective coatings, fully multi-coated on all air-to-glass lens surfaces, increase light transmission for maximum brightness.
- Phase Correction: Used on roof prism models only—coating enhances resolution and contrast.
- Roof Prisms: Valued for greater durability and a more compact size.
- Waterproof: Optics are sealed with O-rings to prevent moisture, dust, and debris from getting inside the binocular.
- Fogproof: Argon gas purging guarantees superior fogproof and waterproof performance.
- Rubber Armour: Provides a secure, non-slip grip, and durable external protection.
- ArmorTek: Exterior lenses are protected by ArmorTek — an ultrahard, scratch-resistant compound that repels oil, dirt and the corrosive salts of fingerprints.
- Twist Eyecups: Twist up and down to precise, intermediate settings to maximise custom fit for comfortable viewing with or without spectacles.
- Center Focus Wheel: Adjusts the focus of both binocular barrels at the same time.
- Locking Diopter: Adjusts for differences in a user's eyes. Located on the right eyepiece.
