Its Optical Components are o-ring sealed to prevent moisture, dust, and debris from seeping inside the monocular. Nitrogen gas purging ensures superior fog-proof and waterproof performance.

- Vortex 10 x 25
The 2.5 mm pupil diameter is a bit small, in my opinion: I have to hold the monocular very steady against my eye, else the field starts to jump around, with blurry edges. I would recommend the 8 x 25 monocular for the larger pupil diameter, and would trade the slight decrease in power for the wider field. - I imagine that the 8 x 36 or the 10 x 36 would also be awesome, but the price and the greater weight are not options for me.
I also like the VIP warranty Vortex has: lifetime, no questions asked, no charge: it makes purchasing this instrument a no-brainer for me.
Pros: great optics; bright; lightweight; solid feeling.
Cons: wish the pupil diameter was a bit bigger, like the 8 x 25 model! (Posted on 14/02/2018)
