Product Information

About the Vortex DIAMONDBACK 10x42 Binoculars:

Completely redesigned, the Diamondback binocular once again redefines the price vs performance ratio in the world of optics. Functionally, as well as aesthetically, the short hinge and upscale sleek new look not only grabs the eye, but leaves more room for your hands—making them physically easier to hold.

An all new optical system with enhanced, dielectric fully multi-coated lenses serves up stunning, views and impressive low-light performance—critical attributes when working to glass up and evaluate game. And with their ultra-wide, best-in-class, field of view, you can efficiently cover ground and acquire subjects with ease.

Vortex binoculars come with a lifetime warranty. Accessories subject to natural wear and tear or loss, such as objective lens caps, rainguards, rubber eyecups, carrying cases and straps are not covered by the VIP Warranty

How to set up your binoculars for your eyesight:
1) We all have slightly different eyesight strengths and so you will need to set up your binoculars to suit your eyesight, using the dioptre setting. If you do not do this your binoculars will not focus correctly.
2) Please follow the instructions on this page under the heading “Setting the Dioptre for your Binoculars:” thesafaristore.com/products/binoculars/techTalk.
3) The location of the dioptre may be different depending on your binoculars. Simply check your user manual to find out where the dioptre is on your binoculars. The same steps would still apply.

As an avid birder I am super impressed with these binoculars. They are great in low-light conditions on early morning or late afternoon drives .
