The Vortex Diamondback HD 12x50 Binoculars are where price meets performance! These binoculars are loaded with features designed to withstand the most punishing outdoor adventure – while still providing the viewer with a bright, crisp, and clear viewing experience. The chassis of Diamondback HD Binoculars is made from a durable magnesium alloy and coated with a layer of rubber armor that protects the internal optical components from shock damage due to accidental drops. The HD Optical System found in Diamondback Binoculars is a combination of excellent optical glass and coatings designed to provide the user with the absolute best viewing experience at this price point!

These Diamondback HD Binoculars come with Vortex’s GlassPak Binocular Harness that keeps your glass secured to your chest, allowing for more mobility and comfort than traditional neck straps. As with all Vortex optics, the Diamondback HD Binoculars are covered by Vortex’s VIP Warranty so you can rest assured that your investment in these binoculars is always covered.

Purchased these as a knock around item to take out in our off road travels. I wasn't expecting a whole lot however, using them I was blown away by the light gathering and clarity. In the evening when its too dim to really see anything naked eye, these binos make the world come alive. I can actually see color and detail that's amazing at five miles out! For the price you are getting a real bang for your buck.

Fantastic quality. Super clear glass. I think these Binoculars have the quality of a much higher price point.

Bought these for my wife for Christmas. She loves them. She can see all the wildlife on our place from the house. As for me I am very impressed with the quality and this is coming from a NightForce ATACR rifle scope user. The glass quality is amazing for the price point. This is one of these “Best Bang For The Buck” deals.

Awesome binoculars. I have a set of Viper 10x40 and the Diamondback 12x50. For the price difference I would recommend the diamondbacks even thought the vipers are a little clearer. If price is not an issue, go with the viper, but diamondbacks are fantastic!
