Vortex Viper HD Binoculars 42mm


Vortex Razor HD Binoculars 50mm

It takes a lot to improve the very popular and award-winning Vortex Viper HD binoculars but we have made small but effective improvements where it matters.  

HD (High Density) extra-low dispersion glass is still used for outstanding edge-to-edge clarity coupled with low-light-conquering XR™ anti-reflective coatings and now a wider field of view making this new range of binoculars even better than before.  

From a size and weight perspective, the Viper HD binoculars are one of the lightest, most compact, full-size premium quality binoculars on the market.  

They come complete with a Vortex Glasspak Binocular Harness (GlassPak™) 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. 


Optical Features  

HD Lens Elements: HD (High Density) extra-low dispersion glass delivers impressive resolution and colour fidelity, resulting in High Definition images.  

XR Lens Coatings: Vortex proprietary XR anti-reflective coatings, fully multi-coated on all air-to-glass lens surfaces, increase light transmission for maximum brightness.  

Phase Correction: Used on roof prism models, coating enhances resolution and contrast.   


Construction Features  

Roof Prisms: Valued for greater durability and a more compact size.  

Waterproof: Optics are sealed with O-rings to prevent moisture, dust, and debris from getting inside the binocular.  

Fogproof: Argon gas purging guarantees superior fogproof and waterproof performance.  

Rubber Armour: Provides a secure, non-slip grip, and durable external protection.  

ArmorTek: Exterior lenses are protected by ArmorTek — an ultrahard, scratch-resistant compound that repels oil, dirt and the corrosive salts of fingerprints.   


Convenience Features   

Twist Eyecups: Twist up and down to precise, intermediate settings to maximize custom fit for comfortable viewing with or without spectacles.  

Locking Diopter: Adjusts for differences in a user's eyes. Located on the right eyepiece.

Tripod Adaptable: Compatible with a tripod adapter, allowing use on a tripod or car window mount.

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
