It takes a lot to improve the very popular Viper HD 10x42 binoculars and Vortex have made small but effective improvements where it matters most with the new 2018 models.

HD (High Density) extra-low dispersion glass is still used for outstanding edge-to-edge clarity coupled with low-light-conquering XR™ anti-reflective coatings and now a wider field of view making this new range of binoculars even better than before.

From a size and weight perspective, the Viper HD binoculars are one of the lightest, most compact, full-size premium quality binoculars on the market. They are supplied complete with a Vortex Binocular Harness Pack (GlassPak™) so can be comfortably carried for long periods of time in their own protective case from which you should have no trouble reaching them at a moment's notice in any of the four highly versatile configurations that the Glasspak can be carried in.

Key features of the Vortex Viper 10x42 HD include:

Roof Prisms: Valued for greater durability and a more compact size

Phase Correction: coating enhances resolution and contrast

HD (High Density) extra-low dispersion glass delivers impressive resolution and colour fidelity, resulting in High Definition images

Vortex proprietary XR anti-reflective coatings, fully multi-coated on all air-to-glass lens surfaces, increase light transmission for maximum brightness

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: Ultra hard, scratch-resistant coating protects exterior lenses from scratches, oil and dirt

Twist eyecups: To maximize custom fit for comfortable viewing with or without glasses

Locking Dioptre: Adjusts for differences in a user’s eyes. Located on the right eyepiece

Tripod Adaptable: Compatible with a tripod adapter, allowing use on a tripod or car window mount

Excellent optical quality
03 January 2021  | 

I've had many different binoculars over my long life as a birder, starting with old fashioned field glasses through to these babies!
The image is crisp, excellent flat field with near perfect colour saturation ( no colour cast like some well known bins) , no chromatic aberration, and excellent light transmission: I bought these in mid December, and have a couple of weeks of dreary weather to prove their worth. The focus is excellent, small movements with a firm knob to counter any accidental "drift".
One small quibble: the glasspak harness is useless for a birder. Tried and went back to my conventional harness. The Pak rides high on the chest, in the way of the bins if they are out and the flap doesn't secure on the empty pak: too high to keep putting the bins in and out. Might work for hunters across the "pond", but u/s for true wildlife watchers.
