Product Description

Vanguard's top-of-the-range Endeavor ED binoculars deliver sharpness and clarity like never before, with exceptional light transmission and remarkable color resolution and contrast.

The Endeavor ED features an ergonomic, open-bridge design that's comfortable to use, along with a wide viewing angle and ultra-reliable BaK-4 roof prisms. The magic behind the binocular's performance lies in the premium ED glass, which reduces light dispersion to provide high-resolution colours and clarity. As a result, you can view objects from a distance as if they were standing right next to you. Vanguard also added an anti-reflective coating for even better clarity and a large focusing wheel for ease of use. Also, thanks to the binocular's nitrogen-charged, O-ring-sealed design, the Endeavor's waterproof/fogproof housing can take on the most challenging weather conditions.

  • Premium ED glass reduces color dispersion for better resolution and clarity
  • Premium BaK-4 roof prisms; anti-reflective coating; wide viewing angle
  • Nitrogen-charged, O-ring-sealed design is waterproof (up to 1m) and fogproof

The Vanguard Endeavor ED binoculars provide the brightest and sharpest images I've seen, even better than the Nikon that people rave about.
Marysvillebob
The view was bright and clear and they were easy to focus, the focus being fast and accurate.

I bought my Vanguard 10.5 X 45s in late June and have only had them out a couple of times. The very sensitive focus adjustment takes getting used to: it is very quick and the depth of field is narrower than other binos I have used, so you find yourself continuing to adjust to small movements of the bird you're viewing (I have been using a pair of Eagle 8 X 42s, which I think are very good). I have noted others commenting on this as well. It's not a complaint, but is worth mentioning.

Recently, on a grey and overcast morning walk; I spotted a robin-sized silhouette atop a very high Eucalyptus 70 to 100 yards away. With the Eagles, I probably wouldn't have bothered trying to ID the bird in that poor light, but I tried it with the Vanguards. I was surprised to find a clear view of what was obviously a Western Tanager and, with a few moments of looking, I could easily see the yellow breast and dimly reddened head of a male tanager in non-breeding plumage.

Later, looking at goldfinches, towhees and immature wood ducks at closer range, the extra 2.5 power of these binoculars brought out the details and colors of their markings more clearly than the Eagles had.

I also need to comment on Vanguard's marketing of these binos. We submitted our claim for the $50 rebate and it came in about a month, along with an offer of some additional goodies if we would write a review. So, you need to know that in addition to honestly being able to recommend the 10.5 X 45s, telling you so will bring me about $18 worth of lens cleaning gear.

I have had these binoculars for about five months now. I did a lot of shopping around and comparison before I plunked down my hard earned coin. I tried various models and makes at three different optical shops and borrowed, borrowed and borrowed some more from friends and family (Birders all). Of all the binoculars I tried and tested these were by far the best for the money. I was trying to hold the cost down to below six hundred dollars and strongly feel I bought binoculars here that are way more worth what I paid for them.

The clarity on these things in absolutely amazing. This review is in reference to the 8.5x45 ones. I had been using 10x... in the past but to be honest when it comes to the identification of birds in woodlands and meadows, it would be hard to beat these things. Now don't take me wrong. If you are doing water or sea birds and having to spot out at great distances, then you do need more power...I use a spotter scope for that.

One of the best features on these bins is that I am able to start birding earlier and stay later because these thing really draw in the light and are great for use in shaded areas. Also, I have smaller hands and these fit perfectly. The focus wheel is smooth with absolutely NO play what so ever. They are relatively light yet have a very strong "feel" to them. I have used these in very wet conditions and they are indeed waterproof. I like the way the lens caps are attached. These are very comfortable binoculars to use and carry.

There are indeed better binoculars out there but as far as I can tell and have found, for the price these would be very near impossible to beat.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: 8.5x45
The Vanguard Endeavor ED binoculars provide the brightest and sharpest images I've seen, even better than the Nikon that people rave about. The image snaps into focus with superb clarity. Mechanically the binocs are sturdy, well-balanced and I really liked the locking diopter design and the amount of eye-relief adjustment. All in all, these binoculars exceeded my high expectations optically and mechanically.

I love my new Vanguard 8.5X45 Endeavors. I'm an avid birder and I really didn't know what I was missing by not having a really good pair of binoculars. I've had several pairs of sub $100 porro prism and one pair of roof prism binoculars that get decent reviews. However, none of them have really worked well with my glasses. I've always thought that pushing your glasses up to find a bird with binoculars was an annoying necessity. Recently I purchased a compact pair of Pentax binoculars (Pentax DCF SW 8X25)and was impressed at both their optical quality compared to my larger binoculars and even more so at being able to see through them with my glasses on. I started reading up on binoculars and learned that technology such as various prism and lens coatings has significantly improved binoculars in the past several years. I decided I needed a new pair of full size binoculars. I research a more expensive purchase to death before I take the plunge and buy. I've found that my research on the internet along with being able to find a cheaper price has served me well and I generally don't even do real life comparisons. Sales people usually just tend to screw up your decision. Vanguards consistently get rated a best buy and are compared favorably in reviews to binoculars costing much more. I was willing to spend 3 or 4 hundred bucks on a pair of binoculars but not 2 thousand bucks on a pair of Swarovski Optik EL's (considered almost everywhere to be the best).

I actually ordered the Vangaurd 8.5x45 Endeavors and the 10x42 Endeavors with the idea of sending one pair back. You can check my review on the 10x42s. There really wasn't any question in my mind that these were the superior birding binocular.

These binoculars are incredibly bright.
