It takes a lot to improve the very popular Viper HD 12x50 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.
