Highly rated by Audubon Shop employees! The affordable Vortex Diamondback 8×42 Binocular is a newer model (2016), and wow – what an upgrade in clarity and design!

Superior quality, high-performance optics are now affordable. The smooth, center-focusing 8×42 Diamondback binocular takes you to the fine details that you prize. This rugged binocular is striking in how well it enables you to detect movement even in low light conditions.

A huge field-of-view — the largest in its class — enhanced fully multi-coated optics, phase-corrected prisms, waterproof and fog proof construction, soft tapered eye cups, and rugged rubber armor make the new Diamondbacks a great choice for beginners and experienced nature viewers alike.

Comes with a case, occular lens rain guard, objective lens covers for storage, strap and soft, reusable lens cloth.

Confused about whether you want 8x or 10x? Most people get much more stability out of the 8’s, so our advice is to stick with them, rather than going with the 10’s.
