Vortex Razor UHD Binoculars

Photography by Vortex

The first glimpse of an antler tine as the sun rises. A twitch of a wing as a bucket-list bird settles on their perch toward night fall. First light, last light, and all the moments in between, we’re all searching for the slightest details hidden in the cover. With the Vortex Razor UHD binoculars, you won’t miss a thing.

Excellent clarity, durability, and resolution place the Razor UHD comfortably atop the Vortex line and make it one of the most impressive binoculars available. An advanced coating on the lenses increases contrast so the Razor excels in low and harsh light conditions, while also protecting the glass from scratches and dust. The result? Sharp images that reduce eye fatigue during long glassing sessions. Fatigue is further mitigated with precise prescription tuning from the right-eye diopter and silky-smooth center focus dial, allowing you to pinpoint your exact focus over long and close ranges alike.

But here’s how the Razor UHD binoculars will revolutionize your entire big game or birdwatching experience: Edge-to-edge clarity and wide field of view that lets you see it all in stunning detail. 

On top of all that, Vortex stands by your product, and vows to repair or replace any product that becomes damaged or defective. No questions asked. Knowing you have a product for life is comforting peace of mind when you’re investing in something as special as the Razor UHD.

Available in the following magnification and lens diameters: 8×42, 10×42, 12×50, 18×56
