I spent several days straight behind this scope on a recent Alaska black bear hunt and it was indispensable. The weight an clarity are the selling features on this model and it certainly has those. At times i would have liked a little more magnification but the clarity made up for it and allowed me to spot a load of bears through rain and intermittent fog.

amazing glass for a small compact easy to carry
I bought this a couples months ago and have nothing but great things to say. The scope is awesome and easy to pack around in the hills. Def one of my best buys.
Small, lightweight, clear glass.
A permanent fixture in my hunting pack. For hunting mountainous country I believe this little spotter is a must have. Has given me the ability to spot bedded animals and size up animals out past 1000yds. Small and light enough to carry hunting, even if you're weight conscious about your gear. Pairs well with the high country tripod. Glass is very clear, focus and magnification work smoothly. I use binos on the tripod and switch to this spotter when I want more magnification. The quick release plate makes swapping optics quick.
Some times great things come in small packages
I bought this scope a month ago and I couldn't be happier. Don't let the size of this scooe fool you, it is very powerful at long distances. I live in Arizona and with the temperature at 98 degrees this last weekend. I was looking at a mountain side about 1.5 miles out with it zoomed in all the way and the heat waves this scope is still clear enough I think you could still count points on a deer, elk for sure. It is light weight and it is very good in low light and you can't beat the VIP warranty. My father in law bought the top of the line Bushnell spotting scope which is the Bushnell Elite in a 20x60x80 and in my opinion this little vortex blows it away and the Bushnell is a very good scope. I am very happy with my choice and I would buy it all over again.
Excellent Spotting Scope
I bought this after getting into sheep hunting. I liked the pack-ability of this scope and how light it was. The clarity of the glass is unlike anything I've used before. At full magnification I did not lose any of the clarity which surprised me. Eventually I could see myself purchasing a more powerful one but don't think I would ever replace this one due to the versatility this scope offers. It's extremely helpful being able to identify a Ram or from 1,000 yards away and not need to worry about hiking closer and potentially spooking a group that may not contain a Ram. I was torn between going angled or straight and am glad I went with the angled. It really helps looking down into it and not into the sun when the sun starts creeping over the mountains in the morning.
