If low-cost, high quality head-mounted night vision is what you need, the Armasight Vega is the best choice. The Generation 1 Vega comes complete with a head mount (which allows the unit to be positioned over either eye) and it is the perfect in-expensive hands-free option for air soft games, paintball, hunting or security – for these activities at night, the Armasight Vega will give you the edge. A built-in short range IR illuminator allows the Vega to work well even in complete darkness, and an optional Armasight long range infra-red illuminator will dramatically boost viewing range if required. The Armasight Vega features all-glass optics, a single push-button control and rugged reinforced composite housing.

Setting it up is really easy; you just put the battery in the monocular and adjust the Velcro straps on the head mount. There is a little button on the back side of the monocular you press to turn it on and off. Click it once to turn on night vision, click it again to turn on the ir, and again to turn the entire system off. The set up is really easy- I got mine working in five minutes. Maybe less.
I waited until it was dark outside and took it out to try it. I had also purchased a "TacVector Optic" infrared laser to mount on my rifle. So when I went out, I had my laser and the night vision monocular. You can see the laser up to about 100 feet real clear. Then I would have to say that I could see approximately 100-115 feet with my night vision device while my infrared was turned on. It was also a very dark night. No moon, no stars. I also purchased an "Evolve Future Technology T20" ir long range illuminator. I would have to say with that light I can see up to about 150+ feet. But also keep in mind there was almost no excess light. On a good night I should be able to see up to around 200+ feet.
The description says water resistant and I believe that it is water resistant. It was sprinkling out when I tried it, and it didn't short circuit and blow up in my face. Also, when you read the instruction manual it says not to be used in extreme weather conditions. So I'm not going to try it out in a hurricane or blizzard, but it does seem like a solid piece of equipment that should last you a long while. All of the items I mentioned that I bought along with this night vision enhance the device in some way, and they are what I have personally found to be the best quality for the price. So go ahead and check them out before you buy this item.
Now that that is out of the way, for a roughly $300 pair of NODS these are not bad. I have to say, the head mount that these come with is probably the most comfortable skull crusher that I have worn. For the money that you're spending, the mount also has some nice features. The fact that it moves up and down instead of being fixed is a nice feature, also you have the ability to move the device from left to right.
The device itself is pretty adequate. Once again, you have to consider, you get what you pay for. I have noticed some fish eye when it is mounted. The IR is pretty weak, but works well for very close up. If you're going to use this for long distance, you really may want to consider getting a long distance IR light. This little device is good for the guy who wants to move through the woods, or where ever at night. However, for you tactical, or tacticool guys out there, this is probably not the optic for you. It is difficult to shoot with an optic on your weapon (although it can be done), when using the built in IR, a red light comes on the side facing what you're looking at. It states in the Manuel that it is not water proof, or even resistant.
All in all this is not a bad little optic, especially if your working with a budget. However, if your looking for a tactical night vision optic, you're going to need to spend a little more money. I am happy with this for what I need, but I am going to consider The Spark Core. Based on what I've read, it may be a little more durable. Hope this helps
