Come rain, shine, sleet, snow or sun, Vortex Diamondback 8X42 Binoculars will allow you to see any subject up close in rich detail. Outfitted with top-of-the-line roof prisms with phase correction, the binoculars have a 6.6-degree viewing angle, allowing you to see a wide area. The application of multiple layers of an anti-reflective coating allows the binoculars to transmit light well for clear viewing in poor lighting conditions. To make the binoculars truly all-weather, they are nitrogen filled, preventing fogging, and fully sealed for waterproofing. Rubber armour is used as an outer covering to decrease the risk of wear and tear in demanding, rough conditions. The rubberised housing is also easy to grip when your hands are wet or cold.

    These binoculars are fantastic. So much better than my old 10x25s. Birdwatching has been transformed. Seeing and identifying so many more birds now. A pleasure to use – comfortable, clear, easy focusing and not too heavy, all at an affordable price. Prompt service from Procular with updates on progress of order.

    I love good binoculars but i object to paying thousands of dollars. I purchased a pair of diamondbacks two years ago and they are a pleasure to use even for extended viewing. This current purchase is a gift for my son in law.

    I had previously decided on the Vipers then came across these little beauties. I did a bit more digging and other reviews indicated no discernible difference from the perspective of general users like myself. They are fantastic. Recently did a trip with a guide and these outperformed an older pair of Swarovski with clarity and in low light.they are infinitely better than my old cannon stabilized. The only gripe was I bought a vortex bino holder and it the clips were too small for the holes on the binoculars. A bit of cord has fixed that though. I also prefer over a pair of 12x I tried on the trip. I shake too much for 12x to be useful. Would probably be ok with a 10x. I’d recommend these to anyone who is looking for an affordable pair or fantastic, robust, waterproof, comfortable binoculars with excellent optics for the price.

Procular’s COVID-19 Coronavirus Delivery Procedures

With the growing health concerns, we have implemented some new guidelines for our no contact deliveries. We are also closely coordinating with Australia Post to ensure there will be no disruptions to our services. We want to assure you that our platforms are at full functionality, with the services and support you are used to receiving from us.

On Time and No Contact Delivery

Australia Post have taken steps to minimise the spread of the COVID-19 virus and will no longer obtain signatures at the time of delivery, instead:

The parcel will be delivered to your doorstep, or at reception. All parcels will no longer require a signature for delivery and/or collection. Contact will be minimised by either leaving the parcel at the door until the driver or postie has left the premises or left for you to pick up on the counter.

For deliveries with specific signature requirements, we will be working with our customers directly to ensure these continue to be met.
