Read Our Review of the Vortex Viper HD

Vortex redesigned their popular Viper HD birding binoculars in the spring of 2018, and we love what they did with them. Larger prisms produced additional brightness and resolution, but the real winning change came with the Viper HD’s generous field of view. The Vortex Viper HD 8x42 offers 409 feet at 1000 yards, making it a real joy to use when tracking birds in flight or searching for them in dense vegetation. The optics are outstanding in the Viper and so are the mechanics and build quality. It’s a well-built binocular that feels good in the hand and will meet the performance needs of veteran and new birders alike. If you’re looking for a better binocular than this, be prepared to spend twice as much. Your purchase of the Vortex Viper HD 8x42 is covered by Vortex’s VIP warranty.
