Vortex Razor HD Binoculars 42mm

Razor HD binoculars have gained a well-earned reputation for pushing the limits of optical performance when light transmission really matters, they are very much at the top end of the market and compete very well optically with other known quality brands while offering superb value. The current Razor HD binoculars are smaller and lighter with a magnesium body and brighter and stronger than ever before. Also, their clean and functional design lead the way for the design and quality of the new Razor HD 85mm & 65mm spotting 'scopes..  

The APO optical system coupled with premium HD glass, Plasma Tech and XR Plus multi- coated lenses, along with multi-layer dielectric coating on the prism enables the binocular to, as it were, "suck in more light" in poor lighting conditions. Add the close focus, the lockable diopter setting, the twist-up eyecups and the tripod adapter all set in the Argon gas purged tough magnesium body that is rubber armoured and obviously waterproof, the Razor HD fully deserves its growing reputation.  

They come complete with a Vortex Glasspak Binocular Harness so can be comfortably carried for long periods of time in their own protective case from which you should have no trouble reaching them at a moment's notice. Also included is the comfort neck strap along with Rainguard, tethered Objective Lens covers and of course the Vortex Unlimited Lifetime Warranty through our UK Authorised Stockists.

We will buy or part-exchange your cameras, lenses, accessories, spotting scopes and binoculars.

We are able to give you a rough price - however we will need to see your gear to give you a final price.

The market fluctuates rapidly and there are a number of considerations we have to make when purchasing equipment from our customers. Our prices undoubtedly are less than you would get if you were to sell privately. The reason for this is, when we sell them to a customer we have to provide a warranty - and with growing costs for repairs this has to be a key consideration.

We’ll always offer as fair a deal as possible and are happy to negotiate or in some instances offer a commission sales basis.

To enquire about selling or part exchanging any items, please complete our online form and ensure you select 'Selling / Part Exchange' within the enquiry type dropdown. 

Get in touch!

Many thanks, Justin
