  • Description

    Superior quality, high-performance hunting optics can find their way around your neck for a surprisingly affordable price. Grasp the light-piercing power of the Vortex 12x50 Diamondback Binoculars as you close in on details missed by others at this time of day. Taking its lead from the Diamondback rattlesnake, this rugged binocular is striking in how well it detects life in low light. Huge field-of-view—the largest in its class—enhanced fully multi-coated optics, phase-corrected prisms, waterproof/fogproof construction, soft tapered eycups, rugged rubber armor. It's all there. Now you can use "wow!" and "thank you" in the same sentence.


    The number one consideration when purchasing any binoculars is the quality of their optics. Vortex has designed their 10x42 Diamondback binoculars with multiple layers of anti-reflection coatings on all their air-to-glass surfaces.  Their BaK-4 prisms are phase corrected to bump up the light transmission by about 7% over standard binocular prisms.  These important features result in bright, sharp, high contrast images across the field of view.  


    • Fully Multi-Coated - Increase light transmission with multiple anti-reflective coatings
    • Dielectric Coatings - Multi-layer prism coatings provide bright, color-accurate images
    • Argon Gas - Gas-purged and o-ring sealed for better water/fog proof performance
    • Phase Correction - Coating on roof prism models enhances resolution and contrast  
    • Waterproof - O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating
    • Fog-proof - Gas purging prevents internal fogging over wide range of temperatures
    • Rubber Armor - Provides a secure, non-slip grip, and durable external protection
    • Adjustable Eyecups - Twist for comfortable viewing with or without eyeglasses
    • Tripod Adaptable - Allowing use on a tripod or car window mount
