America’s leading outdoor magazine, Field & Stream, Awards the Viper 10x42, binocular as the “Best of the Best” in the optics category.

Middleton, WI – August 14, 2007 - Each year for the past decade, Field & Stream magazine distinguishes the best outdoor equipment in their annual Gear of the Year Issue. This year, a test crew comprised of expert hunters, ranchers and outdoor outfitters recognized the Vortex Viper 10x42 as the “Best of the Best” - the number one binocular over all others. The Field & Stream test crew critically evaluated every aspect of optical quality, ergonomics and durability. They carefully examined engineering and workmanship, subjecting binoculars to strenuous and demanding trials including an overnight stay in a minus-10-degree freezer and submersing them for one minute underwater to test for internal fogging and waterproofing. As a result of its superior quality, design and optical performance the Vortex Viper 10x42 beat out the rest of the competition.

Based in Middleton Wisconsin, Vortex Optics has been designing and manufacturing its own line of optics since the late 1990’s. The award winning Vortex Viper 10x42 exemplifies the company’s commitment to excellence and innovation. Commenting on this tradition and recognition, Dan Hamilton, Vortex President/CEO said, “It was an exciting day to announce to our staff the winning of this prestigious award. Our goal has always been to listen to our customers and professionals in the field to design and refine our products based on real life experiences. We would like to thank Field & Stream for their efforts in rigorous testing, objectivity and recognition of the Viper's excellence."

The Vortex Viper 10x42 features an advanced roof prism design that incorporates phase-corrected, high-density BaK-4 roof prisms and Xtra-low dispersion (XD) glass. Additionally, the Viper employs proprietary XR multi-layer anti-reflective coatings to deliver superior resolution and light transmittance. The result is remarkable image definition and impressive low-light performance. The Viper is built with a tough rugged chassis, incorporating durable alloy housings which are covered in shock-absorbing rubber armor. The Viper, like all Vortex binoculars and scopes, is protected by the best warranty in the industry, unconditional and unlimited. For the best prices 208-634-5606
