Looking for high-end, powerful binoculars to take your bird watching, wild-life observation, sports viewing, seal gazing or other hobbies to the next level?

If you’re reading this, it’s safe to assume you’re looking for a new pair of binoculars. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or a loved one, it can be hard to choose specific binoculars when there are so many options floating around.

We have compiled all the features of a particular type of binoculars, the Vortex Diamonback, in one accessible list so you have a clear idea of what’s on offer.


Thanks to a new design change, these Diamonback binoculars (learn more here!)are even more compact than earlier models.

Compact binoculars are a good choice for hikers, backpackers and anyone who wants to be able to whip their binoculars out at a moment’s notice without having to lug a heavy object around all day.

Dielectric Coating

If you’re going to invest in a pair of binoculars, you’ll want clear and precise images.

The Vortex Diamonback has a dielectric coating layer on the prism which helps capture to ensure clear, vivid images no matter what the sky is like.

Long And Close Distance

The vortex Diamonback has 10x magnification, so it will bring the object you are observing 10 times closer to you than it would appear with the naked eye.

Magnification is all well and good, but what if you want to observe a subject up close and see all the tiny details that you would miss with the naked eye?

Close focus allows you to get a closer look at tiny insects, catch all the vibrant details of a birds feathers, or see every spot, tooth and eyelash during a wildlife track.

The Vortex Diamonback binoculars have a 2-meter focus distance, which allows you to get even closer to nature (or whatever you want to observe).

Fog Proof

There’s nothing worse than getting ready for a day of bird-watching only to find that your binoculars are foggier than Victorian Britain.

Luckily, these binoculars are Argon gas-purged, which protects the lenses from fogging up. Not only will this improve your view, but it protects the lenses from moisture damage.


No one wants their binoculars to get ruined in an unexpected down poor, but luckily the Vortex Diamonback binoculars are O-ring sealed which stops water, dust and other nasties from getting inside the binoculars for extra durability and, of course, better images.

Rubber Armor

Don’t settle for flimsy binoculars; invest in something better. The Vortex Diamonback binoculars include rubber Armor which ensures a non-slip grip and external protection in all weather conditions.

Adjustable Eyecups

People who wear glasses should be able to enjoy binoculars too, but unfortunately some binoculars aren’t accessible for eye glass wearers.

These binoculars have adjustable eyecups which can be moved away from the face to accommodate people who wear glasses.

Centre Focus Wheel

When you want to adjust the focus of these binoculars, simply turn the centre focus wheel accordingly to adjust both binocular barrels instantaneously.


Some eyes see things differently, so why pick a pair of binoculars that expects every pair of eyes to be identical?

If you have different eyesight requirements for each eye, you can adjust the Diopter on the Vortex Diamonback binoculars for each individual eye so your over-all image is clearer.

Tripod Adaptable

Want to use your binoculars on a tripod? The Vortex Diamonback is tripod adaptable and can be used on a tripod or car window mount for hours of strain-free viewing.


Features: Compact – Dialectric Coating – Fogproof – Waterproof – Rubber Armor – Adjustable Eyecups – Centre Focus Wheel – Adjusts For Individual Eye Needs – Tripod Adaptable.

Pricing: High-End.
