Vortex Viper HD 10x42 Details

Viper HD 10x42 is a very versatile binocular with higher power of magnification and if firmly braced this model can be carried in hands and still produce steady images. If your primary use is observation in big open spaces, or mountains, this is the right model for you. The height of these binoculars is 5.8 inches or 14.73 cm, width 5.3 inches or 13.46 cm, and the weight is 24.6 ounces or 697 g making it enough compact to ease your portability. 10 x magnification gives an accurate identification of observed object or subject and 42 mm lens would be mostly recommended for use during the daytime. This Vortex Viper HD model is mostly suited for hunters and bird watchers that are looking for binoculars with HD quality images and good protection. Fully multi-coated lenses with an anti-reflex type of coating give your images lifelike colors, enough brightness and edge to edge clarity and ArmorTek hard lenses a lot of protection against harsh weather conditions, scratches and dust. Highly prized purged argon construction with O-ring seals makes this Viper HD waterproof and fog-proof, so you don’t have to worry about sudden temperature drops. Soft tapered eyecups, tethered lens covers, nylon protective case and strap for easy carrying around the neck are just an added value for your viewing enjoyment.


Short description of Vortex Viper HD Binoculars

Viper HD offers award-winning roof prism design models suitable for different applications such as hunting, bird watching, hiking, traveling, astronomy, and other law enforcement and military operations. They are rugged, durable and still enough compact and light to ease your portability. Fully multi-coated lenses can add the value to make your images even brighter and XR anti-reflective optical coatings helps to reduce inner reflections for clearer viewing. High Density (HD) glass will also minimize chromatic dispersion and significally enhance intensity of the colors. All these features offer high-quality performance and make them a great bargain. Viper HD will also never let you worry about performance in harsh weather conditions such as snow and rain. Highly prized argon gas purged construction will help you fight against the water and fogging, and combined with ultra-hard ArmorTek armor lens against dirt, dust and scratches will both give you maximal protection. Viper HD has other construction features such as smooth and grippy center focus wheel, right eye diopter for exacting focus correction, soft multi-positioned eyecups and rubber armor for secure grip of binoculars.
