Breakdown
Fully multi-coated lenses increase light transmission by using multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces. Roof-prism construction delivers greater durability and a more compact size. High-definition, extra-low-dispersion lenses with a phase-correction coating enhance resolution and contrast. They're also coated with scratch-resistant ArmorTek™ that repels oil and dust. Rubber armor provides a sure, nonslip grip and adds shock-absorbing durability. Multiposition eyecups twist up and down for custom eye relief. Includes tethered lens covers, neck strap and padded carry case.

Binos

The binos themselves are great. They are used almost daily watching cargo ships pass our home. I gave it a 4 only because of the carrying case, which sucks. You'd figure Vortex would upgrade it for a $600 pair of binos, especially if they want you to buy their mounting hardware. I does fit into their case with the mount on, but just barely. It is a pain in the ass to get it in and out. I'll be buying a better case, but that won't be a vortex, and the vortex one will end up on the trash.

Can't go wrong with these

First, my old glass is a 20 year old pair of Nikon Monarch 10x42 that I have used effectively to find deer. I had thought about spending the money on a higher priced pair of bino's like the Razors but I figured with technology today a $500 dollar pair would be a huge step above my 20 year old Nikon. So far this set of Vortex viper is far more clear than I had expected. I usually hunt large open mountain areas that require a glass to see a far distance and I usually use my spotter most of the time but I feel that the extra 12 power and clarity will give me more of an edge finding game. Therefore, I might use these binos more than I used the old Nikon. On the steadiness of going to a 12 power over the 10, I have not noticed a difference. Sitting and resting my arms on the knees I have found the Vipers are just as steady as using the 10 power binos. The harness that comes with the Vipers in my opinion sucks because a hate that the lid opens to my chest and i can't get the thing to ride flat against my chest. But I didn't buy these binos for the harness and it is now a storage for my old Nikons. I don't think anyone that hunts large open terrain would go wrong with a set of Vortex Viper 12x50.
