EXCELLENT FOR THE MONEY
on January 22, 2010
The Vortex 10 x 25 was a surprise when I received it. It was small (fits in my fist) and well made.
For the cost it's excellent. With the eye cup screwed out there was little to no ghosting, but I
don't wear glasses. It comes with a neat little case, a strap, and a cleaning cloth. A small monocular
is what it is. They are hard to hold steady but when I compare these to my mini Leica 10x binoculars
I would rate it a 8 and if I considered value maybe a 9. These work for my day pack and bug out bag
without taking up too much space and 10x to boot.
The Vortex is bright and very clear. It will make an excellent scope for backpacking. It won't replace
my big Minox or Leicas, but I wouldn't want to take them backpacking either. I would take the Vortex
on a hike over my small Leica 10x binoculars just for the simplicity of a monocular. No folding and unfolding.
Also if it gets dinged up it has a lifetime warranty, and if lost your looking at a little over fifty bucks.
In my humble opinion , it's a great deal.
