    Comments about Vortex 10x50 Viper HD Binoculars:

    Pleased with everything. When I adjust both lenses to fit my eyes, there seems to be no room for a tripod bracket. Hopefully I am wrong and will figure it out. Other than that, they work well. I have not had experiences with other brands but am very pleased with this set. Great to finally see the colors of items!
    Quality wise they seem to be 5 stars. I have only had a chance to use them twice so far. Perhaps later I can give a more thorough review.

        Comments about Vortex 10x50 Viper HD Binoculars:

        These Vortex Vipers are an outstanding value binocular. They offer surprisingly flat and crisp images all the way to the edge of the field of view. With the 50mm objectives, you have great light gathering ability for low light situations...perfect if you are hunting. These glasses are built like a tank....and im very happy with the overall quality of the construction. I love the diopter adjustment, the twist up eye cup design, and best of all the glass. The eye relief is about 1mm too long for me personally, but still suits me very well. I would recommend these to anyone looking to get high quality glass without breaking the bank.
