Introduction: The creme de la creme of the Vortex range. Viper's are the best selling higher spec Vortex binoculars. You will quietly chuckle to yourself when you look through these! Are they better than the equivalent Swarovski binoculars? Of course not. But for the casual observer of wildlife, we challenge you to find the differences (apart from the difference in price of course).

With HD (High Density) extra-low dispersion glass, one look is all you'll need to appreciate why the Viper HD is an award-winning bino. Add XR fully multi-coated lenses and you have a bino that delivers bright, crisp details with impressive resolution and color fidelity. Rugged, compact and lightweight—one of the lightest full-size binos available. It's no mystery why the Viper HD is an award-winner, our Viper HD binoculars pack in all the features you need for a successful hunt. See what premium optics can do for you.

Vortex binoculars come with a lifetime warranty. Accessories subject to natural wear and tear or loss, such as objective lens caps, rainguards, rubber eyecups, carrying cases and straps are not covered by the VIP Warranty

How to set up your binoculars for your eyesight:
1) We all have slightly different eyesight strengths and so you will need to set up your binoculars to suit your eyesight, using the dioptre setting. If you do not do this your binoculars will not focus correctly.
2) Please follow the instructions on this page under the heading “Setting the Dioptre for your Binoculars:” thesafaristore.com/products/binoculars/techTalk.
3) The location of the dioptre may be different depending on your binoculars. Simply check your user manual to find out where the dioptre is on your binoculars. The same steps would still apply.

How many to pack

How many pairs of high quality binoculars to pack?:

Pack at least one pair of binoculars per couple. The ideal is really one pair of binoculars per person so that you, your partner and your family (if going on a family safari) are able to appreciate the wildlife interaction you are viewing (hunting and so forth) at the same time. If you intend not to take binoculars, and borrow from your safari guide, please note that this is not ideal. Not only will you be hindering your experience on safari and miss out on a great deal of the detail those with binoculars will see, but you will also affect your guide's ability to interpret wildlife behaviour - or indeed spot wildlife.
