Vortex has a lifetime guarantee. I have used the Diamondbacks and they
are a decent binocular. We had a pair of Celestron binoculars, many
years ago. They were not that great. Perhaps, they have improved. Good
luck with whatever you choose.

My Nikon Monarchs broke this weekend (lens eye cup) and I read
this is quite common. They are only 13 years old, so am very
disappointed. I can always use my dad’s 1940s binoculars, which
still are great! but they are a bit heavy…

I’ve read reviews and narrowed it down to

Celestron Trailseeker ED


Vortex Diamondback HD.

What are your opinions and have either of these gotten broken for
you? I need something that will last 20 years…(probably more
than my age allows, but am planning on a long life, haha).

You can reply just to me if desired, not to the list.

Thank you all very much!!
