Rated 4 out of 5 by from chubs this chubby little monocular is a great option if you just need a lightweight reference of a medium range target area or a quick glance at a bird on a perch. of course the field of view isn't great compared to binos, but that's not what we're talking about here anyway. the glass is crisp. this is usually where you get your money's worth with vortex. in this case, the solo 10x36's eye relief is awkward. the adjustments for glasses vs without glasses helps, but i almost always wipe the glass with my eyelashes when i use it. the focus is easy to adjust and stays put for the most part. there are also like a jillion ways to carry it. oh, did i mention it weighs almost nothing? dig.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I bought the 10x36 model early 2016 and I have been waiting to write a review until I had a chance to test it. I am very impressed with the crisp and clear optics and the excellent performance when the light is low. I live in Sweden, where the sun is up all summer and where it gets dark at 15.00 in the winter. I would say the neoprene cover is better than the carrier case shown in the manual. I have both thanks to Vortex excellent customer service that sent me one free of charge. The neoprene cover give a better protection if, for instance, if you fumble and drop the monocular on a rock (as I have done a couple of times) or when you shove it into your knapsack. It is small and light, so you will bring it on the stroll or the day hike. All in all, a great piece of optics for a great price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice monocular Received this monocular as a gift for Christmas. It's really bright, and not too big to carry with me when hunting or hiking. The neoprene case that comes with it is very nice, and the belt clip is great. I'd buy one of the smaller solos if they came with a belt clip. Wouldn't mind having the flip-back eye-cup like on the ranging version, either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Little Monocular Love this thing. Easy to carry, easy to use, easy everything. It's not made for glassing and for it's intended use, it does a good job. My only complaint is that sometimes the focus seems touch, but it may just be me. I also wish the belt carry case were not velcro, just a snap would be nice. Velcro is loud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This little guy earned a spot in my bag Just got this in the mail yesterday. I must say I'm impressed. It's easy to use and all the negative reviews are ridiculous. You can operate it with one hand, you can hold it steady past 100 yards, and it's really clear. One of the best lightweight tools I'll have in my bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact everyday glass I was a bit apprehensive on using a monocular for primary classing but found that the size and convenience of this scope had me grabbing it in leiu of my binos 9 out of 10 times. Definitely a handy tool and well built. Very bright glass and positive focus. Happy with my purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product highly recommend I got my Solo for Christmas and was excited to get it out in the woods I used in for late season deer and coyote. Nice lite weight perfect power to see details without lugging bino around your neck Nice clip on the side. I would recommend them in a heart beat.

How can I, as a reseller obtain the old style mesh belt pouch for the SOLO range in Australia. I am getting too many complaints about the cheap neoprene thing being supplied. Hunters want quality on their belt, not dangle from neck. Happy to pay for them or can you advise where in China we can import them from. Peter Hackett

is there a lense cover solution for the solo 10x36? especially the objective end which has a tapered surface. thx
Asked by: marc
We do not make a flip cap for the Solo 10x36. Some people get our flip caps that are slightly oversized and use rubber cement, but it is not recommended.
