Description

Vortex Diamondback 8x28 Binocular

 

With the compact 8x28 Diamondback, light doesn't find its way in so much as it's grabbed, bound, gagged, and made to serve your will.

 

  • Phase corrected prisms (increasing light transmission by 7%) deliver sharp, greatly contrasted images.
  • BaK-4 prisms provide sharp images from one edge of the broad viewing field to the other.
  • Fully multi-coated optics increase light transmission for higher image quality in all lighting conditions—enhanced for 2009

A rock-solid performer

 

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. The Diamondback's protective rubber coating gives you a sure grip that is easy to handle, even as fingers grow numb in the cold. In addition, the retractable Diamondback eyecups feature a soft, tapered style for a more natural fit at your eye—cushioned with rubber for years of relaxed viewing.

 

  • Complete waterproof protection keeps dust and water out of the optical system with tight O-ring seals.
  • Complete fogproofing of internal lenses with argon-purged optics presents clear views in spite of sudden temperature changes.
  • Diamond checker pattern in protective rubber armor provides a solid-grip surface.

Argon gas purging

 

This advanced process protects your Diamondback binocular in the following ways:

 

  • Argon gas does not absorb or react chemically with water.
  • Argon gas eliminates internal fogging.
  • Argon gas maintains its protective properties over a wider temperature range.
  • Argon gas does not diffuse as quickly as other elements, extending the service life of the optics longer.

Included with the Vortex Diamondback 8x28 Binocular:

  • Rainguard
  • Tethered objective lens covers
  • Comfort neck strap
  • Deluxe padded carry case
  • Vortex VIP Lifetime Warranty

      Comments about Vortex 8x28 Diamondback Binoculars:

      Ordered these binoculars as 1 of 4 recommended by a Hayneedle optics salesperson. Was able to set the focus in seconds and found it very easy to quickly make minor adjustments for more distant targets. Excellent clarity and brightness for targets at all distances. While only 8X they perfectly met my needs of focusing on the line of scrimmage from more than 100 yards away. They feel very durable yet light in weight. Would highly recommend at this modest price.

            Needed small, lightweight, sharp focusing, adjustable pair of binoculars. Bonus: waterproof! Highly recommend. Purchased for wildlife and nature viewing for mix of ages and vision strengths (the contacts wearer has two different prescriptions: one eye distance, other eye mid-range).
