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.

So on the pictures it looks cheap but in reality the monocular feels pretty heavy and well made....well for 300 bucks its very nice,and even the head harness can probably take a beating so i was happy about that.
This unit really doesnt let you see alot in darkness without the Infrared light turned on,even with the stars(didnt have a good bright moon yet)
i think the problem is more in the viewing angle and just how much you can see through the lens with your eye,the unit has quite the "fish lens" effect so it was difficult to navigate and walk at the same time at first,if you got a straight sort of flat area to walk around then you might be ok but as soon as i got into the tight pathway with the slope to the side i had to be very slow and carefull but i think with lots of practice you can walk around and navigate with only looking through the thing.
It has sort of a zoom effect so i could barely make out my hand in front of me but could see the feet clear enough-note that you will need to adjust the focus ring and dioper ring often if you planning to check different distances all the time to get the clearest image.
The head mount will help with hands free operation but i cant adjust the scope exactly to how i want it to be and you gotta play with the head mount straps to make it fit your head the way you want it.
So the google is not really good by itself but its great when you turn on the infrared built in light-the light lets you see around 50-60 feet in front of you with its nice focused beam,my other small infrared light was very weak compare to this one.
Basically you can barely make out things here and there without IR turned on but the light intensification is still very weak but for a starter unit with great IR built in and a head mount its a good deal and its good to start you off if you thought about the nice/expensive night vision.
you can see good distance with it,i would say as good as you eye can see kind of but its harder because that infrared light can only reach that 60ish feet-later im gonna see if i can get some bigger IR light with more distance so that will help.
So the google is not great on its own like the generation 3 pvs 7 or other good stuff like that,i dont think its even worth bothering with gen 2 because of the shorter lifetime compare to gen 3.......but this gen 1+ works if you want to identify someone/something at a decent distance with that ir turned on without being seen or maybe if its a great full moon(maybe even half moon) then it can work on its own.
Last thing is - read the instruction,take out the battery for storage and when you just finish using it and turn the unit off,it will still intensify the light so even with the battery taken out it will be light sensitive for about 5-10 minutes so dont forget tu always put the lens cap on and dont look at the bright light sources-it will prolong the life of the intensifier tube
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.
