Gear Review Vortex Razor HD Binoculars

By Darr Colburn
The new Vortex Razor HD line of binoculars has really caught my eye since they first came out. I have been most impressed with the edge to edge clarity of the Razor HDs.  In my opinion they stack up against many of the binoculars that are twice the money. I have not seen any other binoculars that compare to the Razors in the $800 to $1200 price range. The light weight and ergonomic design make the Razors easy to hand hold. The Razors are also easily mounted on a tripod with an Outdoorsmans stud and bino adapter. I don’t understand why some optics manufactures refuse to make their binoculars easily tripod mountable. The Outdoorsmans sells the 10x42 Razor HD for $1199.
Key Features Include:
• Premium HD extra low dispersion glass

• XR fully multi coated lenses for increased light transmission and maximum brightness

• Argon gas purged for superior waterproof and fog proof performance

    The Razor HD stands up nicely against my older pair of Swarovski 10x42 ELs.  The Ocular lens on the Razor HD is 25% larger than the Swarovski.
The Vortex Razor HD binoculars are available in four models
  • 8x42
  • 10x42
  • 10x50
  • 12x50
