Vortex Diamondback 8x42 Binocular
Striking wide-field power.
Frugality and high-performance optics don't usually get used in the same sentence, but here's an exception. The Diamondback puts superior quality, high-performance optics around your neck for a surprisingly affordable price. It's all here: huge field-of-view (the largest in its class) along with fully multi-coated optics, phase-corrected prisms, waterproof / fog proof construction, rugged rubber armor, and soft, tapered eyecups. Now you can use "wow!" and "thank you" in the same sentence.
Exceptional for nature observation.
Consider the snake with its coat of tough, durable scales — this same ruggedness is found in the finely textured armor worn by the 8x42 Diamondback binocular. This protective coating gives you a sure grip that is easy to handle, even as fingers grow numb in the cold. Whether your adventure takes you across rocky, sand-carved terrain, or into the high timber of the Rockies, you can trust the rock-solid performance of the Diamondback binocular.
- Complete waterproofing with tight O-ring sealing locks out any concern over blowing dust or driving rains.
- Complete fogproofing with nitrogen gas keeps internal lenses clear in humid habitats, or as you go from one temperature extreme to the other.
In addition, the Diamondback eyecups feature a tapered style for a more natural fit at your eye. Covered with tried-and-true rubber for cushioned comfort, these retractable eyecups promise years of relaxed viewing.
Terrific viewing at twilight.
