    I think they are excellent – I particularly like the clarity of vision and ease of operation.

    I received my pair in a very quick five days, and I’m blown away by how clear they are compared to everything else I’ve tried. The build quality is second to none, and the strap and carry bag is of very sturdy material and looks great. You won’t regret getting a pair of these, and they are well worth the price.

    I received my pair of Vortex Viper 8×42 binoculars about 10 days ago and have really enjoyed using them. I think the optics are great. I am using them for bird watching. Although I notice they are good for butterflies as well if one lands. They are recommended by the Audubon Bird Club in their guide to binoculars. They are a lot more convenient than 10×50 and a big improvement in performance over 9×25 (Nikon) but of course they are more expensive. I mostly wear glasses while using them and the rapid screw down eye cups are just brilliant for enabling quick change over to ‘glasses on’ mode. They also have a good wide field of view, good clarity and brightness. So glad I bought them. The price was good too.

    I recently purchased the 8×42 vipers and while happy with the binoculars, the neck strap broke almost immediately just while wearing them around the house! Not impressed considering the price!! Im waiting on procular to respond to my email sent.

      Hi Craig, we have checked and the strap which was provided with the binoculars was the best one Vortex have. We do have a different one that should be stronger. We are sending you this new strap today.

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.
