Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every other optics company might as well give up My buddy owns one of these and I tried it out this summer. I feel like a broken record, but I can't say enough good things about vortex and all their products. This spotting scope lives up to the company's reputation. Sometimes I think some advanced alien spaceship crashed in vortex's backyard and they were able to reverse engineer the best optics in the universe. I don't know how else to explain the difference in quality and price from every other optics company. How is the glass that much better? What does vortex know that everyone else doesn't? Hopefully I can set aside enough to buy one of these myself someday for that elk hunt I keep dreaming about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would highly recommend this product to anyone. I was very stubborn for a long time to upgrade my spotting scope from the hand me down I had used for years. After I finally pulled the trigger I was amazed by glass quality to price ratio you recieve from the viper line of optics. I primarily use it in western big game hunting such as mule deer, elk, and pronghorn. The past two years using this product has directly increased my success rate on my hunts. Being able to spot animals that would have been easily looked over prior to the use of the viper spotter. It pairs great with the summit ss tripod and is easy to thow in my pack whether it is for an afternoon or a 5 day stay in the backcountry. I'm still kicking myself for not making the purchase sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex for life! The Viper line of spotting scopes was everything and more than I hoped for! I live in Alaska and my optics really go thru a beating on the harsh terrain here during hunting season. In rain, snow, sleet, and bouncing around on a ATV for hundreds of miles the Viper HD survived it all. The clarity is astounding! My hunting partners all had competitor name brand optics and admitted the Viper HD was tough to beat. I can see them trying Vortex optics in the future after they kept wanting to peek thru my spotter several times to get a clearer picture! Thanks for the great product Vortex! Sincerely, Customer for life

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing clarity & perfect size! I bought the Viper HD 15-45x65 spotter back in March for spring Bear and the upcoming 2016 Elk season. Early morning clarity is outstanding and pack ability is awesome. My brother bought a different brand - not gunna spoil it but he spent 00 more than I did and he wasn't happy after seeing the overall difference between the two. The money I saved went to the new Viper HSLR 6-24X50 Scope I put on my new rifle. I haven't received that scope yet as its on back order but it's worth the wait and I know I won't be disappointed! Vortex is my 1st choice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I expected!!! I bought this spotting scope primarily to use in the field for spotting game and figured it would be OK at the range even though it was only a 45x maximum magnification. I would have normally bought the 60x for range use but didn't need the extra size and magnification in the field. I was immediately impressed with the clarity of the optics and the fine focus capability of the scope and have happily used it for two years. Two weeks ago I was sighting in my coyote rifle and took a target out to the 300 yard line. It had been raining and I needed muck boots just to slog through the slop to get there. No way did I want to travel through that again! To my pleasant amazement I was easily able to see 22 caliber bullet holes in the target at 300 yards even with some slight mirage. Happy, happy, happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waited Way to Long for This...Viper HD I have messed with cheap optics for years and finally realized that I spend most of my time behind them. Read some reviews and purchased the Viper HD 15-45x65 Angled spotting scope and dropped right into another world of optics and hunting. What a total change in how things look out there. So crystal clear and so easy to use. I can't believe I spent so much money on all the other cheap stuff...Thank you Vortex for putting me in another world of hunting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Scope I love to sit and glass and this scope has made it a whole lot more effective. Upgraded to this scope from and older Leupold scope and it has made things a whole lot easier. I love have the angled over the straight. Makes it a lot easier to spend hours behind the glass and also allows you to set up closer to the ground on windy days. The clarity on this scope competes with upper models at a way better price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't have asked for better I use my spotting scope for spotting during my deer and elk hunts very easy to carry and great power for what I'm chasing. I also added the camera adapter and spend a lot of time photographing wildlife in northern NM including the big horn. My scope also is used for interpretive programs I put on at the State Park where I work easy set up for kids to get a chance at seeing wildlife up close and personal

Just purchased a Viper HD spotting scope and I was looking for the black neoprene cover. On your website I only see options for Diamondbacks and Razor models. Do one of these also work with the Viper? Thanks
Asked by: Matt
While it seems pretty straight forward, there is a video showing the easiest way to put the neoprene cover on. I would recommend viewing that first.
