Description

Vortex Kaibab 15x56 Binocular
From edge to edge. One end of the landscape to another. Huge possibilities await your scouring eye. Scouring through our new Kaibab 15x56 binocular, of course. Pushing the performance envelope as far as we could, using the latest technologies available to use, the Kaibab offers the optical features needed to overtly peruse the landscape in search of wild game targets. Superior images. Stunning resolution and, of course, incredible power.

 

The Vortex HD System
Imagine taking all the technology of high-definition video broadcasting systems and incorporating that level of performance into an optical system for binoculars that is truly remarkable. That's what you'll find in the Kaibab.

 

ArmorTek is a unique, protective coating that hardens and strengthens lenses—actually repelling the oil and corrosive salts of fingerprints. ArmorTek features a proprietary fluorine compound that makes lenses:

 

  • Harder and stronger
  • Scratch-resistant
  • Stain-proof
  • Easier to clean—dust, dirt, and smudges

XD (Xtra-low Dispersion) glass objective lens elements of extra-low dispersion glass enhance image resolution—carefully selected and precision-crafted to exacting standards for true-to-life images of startling clarity and color accuracy.

 

XR coatings deliver incredible image detail with extremely high resolution and light transmission. Fully multi-coated, scratch-resistant coatings eliminate annoying, image-degrading reflections, and offer extraordinary brightness for a lifetime of trouble-free lens protection.

 

XD Optical Design is an advanced optical element configuration that virtually eliminates aberrations and provides distortion-free, flat field images with unmatched edge-to-edge accuracy and detail.

 

The ultimate western hunting binocular
Named in honor of the famed Kaibab Plateau in northern Arizona, one of the top trophy mule deer areas in the country, the Vortex Kaibab is the sort of premium, high-powered binocular preferred by expert local guides. During the best late season rut hunts on the Kaibab when giant trophy bucks suddenly become more active and visible, specialized, top-tier long distance optics such as the Vortex Kaibab 15x56 binocular will allow the knowledgeable hunter to succeed where others with inferior optics fail.

 

  • Complete waterproof protection keeps dust and water out of the optical system with tight O-ring seals.
  • Complete fogproofing of internal lenses presents clear views in spite of sudden temperature changes because of argon-purged optics.
  • Metal-reinforced eyecups are tough, durable, finished with a rubber coating, and made to endure constant wear.
  • Tapered multi-position eyecup style provides a more natural fit to your eyes and comfortable, full-field viewing with eyeglasses.
  • Rugged rubber armor ensures a solid, easy carry.

Argon gas purging

 

This advanced process protects your Kaibab 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.

        Comments about Vortex 15x56mm HD Kaibab Binoculars:

        I compared these side-by-side with Swarovski SLC 15x56mm WB Binoculars. Could not tell any difference in clarity or definition. These are a lot cheaper and when you consider the unconditional lifetime warranty. They're a much better buy than Swarovski SLC 15x56mm WB Binoculars. Plus a tripod is not necessary to use these binoculars, but having some way to study your arms while using these is nice.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Binoculars.com really treated me fantastic on these Binoculars. Shipping was fast,sales rep couldn't have been any more helpful or customer friendly. Just had a great experience with this company and would highly recommend them if you're looking for any optics.
