10 reviews for Vortex Optics Diamondback HD Binoculars 10×42

  1. Bobster

    best field glasses I have used.

  2. Lisa M. Mary

    I didn’t realize they came with the case and straps so I ordered these separately. Made it an even better deal.

  3. Barn Owl

    These binoculars are very to adjust and are durable but light to hold. The included carrying case is a really good feature.

  4. Harlan W. Erickson

    I purchased the Vortex Optics Diamondback HD 10X28 Binoculars based solely on the reviews I read and am one hundred percent satisfied based upon the clarity, lack of shadowing and quick spotting. I have a pair of Leica Duovid 10X50 Binoculars I grew nervous of sharing at Washington Husky Football games due to a couple of near drops, so I knew I had to find an alternative, and boy, I’m glad I chose the Vortex. Currently, I have the Vortex Strike Eagle Scope on one of my rifles, so I knew the binoculars were going to be a great choice, especially with the warranty. I’ve also used the Binoculars in low light conditions while out on the water and am as equally amazed as I was at the football game. I can’t wait to take the glasses out for a little birdwatching.

  5. M. Smith

    I have been using some 30year+ old binoculars for casual purposes, but recently used the old timers at an event and had a bit of trouble to clearly distinguish objects. I figured it was time to upgrade, WOW!!! The Diamondback HD are very clear and bright, even at night I was surprised. These are highly rated for good reason.

    These are my first real pair of binos. I got these as a surprise gift for my wife for our trip to the Everglades. Apparently there are lots of birds there lol. She like birds. Me, eh…not my bag so much. Compared to the gift shop binos at the national park, these are amazing.The optics are razor sharp. They are as sharp as the pictures taken from my mirrorless camera lenses costing 8x as much. I was surprised at the clarity and sharpness. The first thought that ran through my head was I need to get a longer range pair but I snapped back to reality. The 8×28 is perfect. I think the next size up would have too much “shake” making it harder to zero in on the object. She would complain and I’d never hear the end of it. Ugh. These can “shake” a little but it’s not that noticeable, as others have mentioned. The distance is nice.The controls and adjustability are top notch. It stays where you left it.The size and weight is very manageable. It’s not too heavy so you can carry this around all day and it won’t hurt your neck.It comes with a nice case that includes a shoulder strap for the case and a neck strap for the binos. Incidentally, the rubber eye cover loop is not broken, it is split by design. That is so you can remove the rubber cover and still have it attached to the neck strap on one side. Otherwise, it would be hard to use with the rubber cap attached to both sides of the neck strap.What I didn’t like about it…The rubber eye covers, the eye side, comes off rather easily when you put it in the case. The large side rubber cover also comes off too easily. I wish these snapped on or took a little more force to pull off.The metal strap loops are too small. You can only slide a single flat strap through it. So any strap thicker than that won’t fit. I had purchased a OP/TECH strap thinking I could install it but I can’t. It’s wider so it’s more comfortable and usually the included straps are junk-but the included neck strap is okay.All in all my experience with the first real pair of binos has been stellar. I’ve purchased a red dot sight from vortex previously and it has been great. Vortex as a company continues to impress me with these binos.

    I bought this binocular a year ago based on a recommendation from a local naturist friend. I used it regularly on my birding tour. It never disappointed me. It is light and feels good. The view is bright and clear. Unfortunately the focusing nob was broken a few week ago. When I contacted Vortex for help, they graciously offered to fix it for FREE and emailed me the shipping label immediately. They emailed me again when they received the shipping and told me that “your glass is in good hand” , They asked me to wait for a few weeks, but another email title ” your glass is coming home” arrived a week later. I received the repaired binocular that day and binocular looks complete new to me. Thanks Vortex.

    Compact and good clarity. Brought them with me on a cruise and it was great to be able to focus on land objects and other ships at sea. Excellent quality at a good price!
