Binos: All the Better to See You With

Vortex Triumph HD 10x42mm Binocular.

In many respects, humans are pathetic predators, with hearing that is average at best and atrophied olfactory organs. So, it’s our eyes we rely on most when stalking game, but even they need a helping hand. And that’s why a high-quality optics — binos, spotting scopes and riflescopes — are paramount to hunting success. In fact, a high-quality binocular is arguably the most important piece of equipment a hunter can carry. By letting the eyes do the lion’s share of the “walking,” hunters can conserve precious energy for when it counts — after they’ve confirmed the presence of their quarry and calculated a route that will get them sure-kill close.  Considered the glassing optics Jack of All Trades — 10-power binoculars are uber-popular with hunters east and west. Vortex’s all-new Triumph HD 10x42mm offering is a good example, delivering quality and durability at a value price (MSRP: $149.99) and backed by its lifetime VIP Warrant. This bino delivers good resolution and contrast for detecting animals in the shadows and its HD Optical System provides crisper color and sharper images. Other features include fully multicoated lenses that deliver greater clarity and low-light performance, compact roof prism design, rubber armor for a secure grip and external protection and adjustable eyecups and diopter for customizable viewing, even with eyeglasses. The Triumph is waterproof, fogproof and shockproof for reliable operation in any environment and ships with a neck strap, tethered objective lens covers, Rainguard eyepiece cover, lens cloth and adjustable GlassPak binocular harness and case.
