    Back in 07 I went on a Caribou hunt in Northern Quebec, I actually sold my Swarovski Els to help finance my trip. I picked up a set of Vortex Diamondbacks in 10x42 because I heard good things about them on AT and I figured they would get me by until I could save up for another set of Swarovski. When my binoculars arrived I thought wow these look pretty nice for $200 glass(keep in mind I had been using $2000 glass for the last 5 years). I then took them outside and startd glassing the hillsides around my house, I could not believe how well they performed.

    Well off to northern Quebec, I arrived in camp and experienced weather that was everything from 60 and sunny to 19 and blowing snow. I used those diamonbacks for the 5 day hunt and glassed for hours at a time. I was totally satisified and never once wished that I had my Swarovskis.

    I returned from Canada and posted on Archery talk about my experience with Vortex, I was contacted by Tim Austin (vortex optics) he told me that he loved my review and the pictures. Tim asked if Vortex could use my photos in their 08 catalog,,,of course I said heck yeah!!

    I emailed Tim the pictures and about a week later I received a very nice package from Vortex full of very nice gear. I was then contacted by Vortex and offered a position on their Field Staff, of course I said yes.

    In January 08 Tim contacted me again and asked if I would like to attend the ATA show in Indy( this is a non public show and tickets are hard to get) again I jumped at the chance, I got to meet Tim at the show and was introduced to some of the other fine folks at Vortex.

    Words can not express how proud I am to be a member of their team. Vortex is a top notch company, ran by top notch individuals!

    Their products are top shelf and their warranty is second to none. If there is a problem it will be taken care of.

    I received a pm from a member on another forum about a problem he had with his Sidewinders. A screw broke inside one of the eyecups. Since it was the middle of hunting season he didn't want to send his binos in for warranty work and be without them. He was just contacting me to let me know of the problem as well as ask if I' ever heard of such a problem before.

    I contacted Tim to make him aware of the problem. Tim contacted the member to get the issue straightened out. Rather than have the guy send in his binos for work in the middle of the season Tim sent him a BRAND NEW pair of Sidewinders, no questions asked, as well as a return shipping label for the damaged Sidewinders!

    From that moment on I've been an ardent supporter of Vortex Optics.

    Wow, what a way to kick off the new year.

    I have been wanting a pair of these for a while and hope to have some by summer. All I know is what I have heard word of mouth. The customer service is second to none for the LIFE of the product. It doesn't matter who owns it!!! It doesn't get any better than that. I do not know of anyone who has had to send theirs in but it is nice to know.

    I have looked at numerous binocs this last year and the price and quality cannot be beat. I have buddies with Leicas, Leupolds, Swaros, and Vortex and they all appear to be great products and the view is awesome. Vortex just has THE best price.

    I've heard nothing but good things about the Vortex products and their great customer service. My friends use your products for archery tournaments/hunting. I've looked thru a few and want some but have to put my kids first before things for myself. Well good luck to everybody.

    2 years ago when I decided to start shooting in various 3d events I figured I'd better go out and get some quality glass. After researching several "big name" bino companies I was introduced to the Vortex line. Doing side by side comparisons I finally had it narrowed down to the Nikon Monarchs and the Vortex Sidewinders. (8X42) I honestly couldn't tell if one was of a better quality then the other so the ultimate decision came down to price.

    I also deer hunt hard nearly every day from Mid Sept. through Dec.

    I've been out in every possible condition, 90 degrees and humid, pounding rain, wind and snow even one 3d shoot that the temperature never climbed above negitive 12 degrees! My Sidewinders have never failed to perform in any of those demanding conditions.

    Thanks for a quality, affordable option Vortex!!!

    In august of 2007 I got the opportunity to try out a Vortex Skyline spotting scope thanks to Ron at Jayhawk Optics. Circumstances not connected to the spotting scope or Jayhawk prevented me from keeping the Skyline Scope 80A. I found it to be a very good scope for the money and the customer service I received was nothing short of outstanding from both Ron and Vortex. Jayhawk didn't have one in stock so he had it shipped directly to me from Vortex to get it to me quickly. When I couldn't keep it due to my wife's failing health and resulting bills Ron took it back with no problem at all, no questions asked.
    Next june I plan on buying a pair of binoculars for my son for his birthday and will purchase them from Jayhawk Optics due to the way he did business with me in the past. A great dealer with a great product from a great company.

    couple friends of mine have the Diamondback models? Whatever models they have are great. Love them for low light situations too. Just a crystal clear glass and for the price, I think they are hard to beat. I use Alpens now but definitely wouldn't mind comparing them to a set of Vortex. I have the Vortex shirt and hats, just no Vortex.

    Default Bino

    ...I have a set of vortex 8 x 42 sidewinder...I did about the most Extensive comparison i think anyone can do ....and for the money you canot beat these binos....As for the customer service second to none.... here is why ....While at our archery club my son accidently knocked over my binos dropping them to a concrete floor snapping the eye cup adjuster...Called vortex they advised me to ship back they would review there warranty & Fix (I expected to be charged).... Less than 7 days later the binos are returned fixed along with a note NO charge ....Are you kidding me ... Totally my fault and fixed for free what a awesome product & customer service ... My next pair of Bino will be Vortex No questions asked....

    I have a couple of friends that own binoculars and spotting scopes from Vortex, and recommend them very highly. Being that I have a new youth hunter in my family, he could sure use a set of quality optics!

    Thank you for the offer!
