Crossfire HD Roof Prism Binoculars

You know what they say about people who assume you can’t get HD optics, rugged performance and high end form-factor in a value-price binocular? They clearly haven’t checked out the Crossfire HD. Add in the included GlassPak binocular harness for quick optic deployment in the field and superior protection and comfort – The Crossfire HD truly is a rare find.


Adjust Eyecups & IPD

The eyecups on the Crossfire HD binocular twist up and down so any viewer can see the full field and enjoy comfortable viewing—with or without eyeglasses. When not using eyeglasses or sunglasses, keep the eyecups fully extended. For the best viewing when wearing glasses, twist eyecups down.

The interpupillary distance (IPD) is the distance between the center of your left and right pupils. Match the IPD of your eyes and your binocular by rotating the barrels in or out until you see a single image free of shading


Focus Binoculars

Use the center focus and diopter to adjust for vision differences in each eye. Choose an object about 20 yards away and perform this two-step process:

  1. Close your right eye or cover the right objective lens with your hand. Look at the object with your left eye and adjust the center focus dial until the image is in focus.
  2. Close your left eye or cover the left objective lens with your hand and rotate the ring until the object is in focus.

Neck Strap

Attach the padded neck strap in these three simple steps.

  1. Push a few inches of the strap through the strap attachment on the binocular.
  2. Hold the buckle and thread the end of the strap through the buckle.
  3. Adjust the overall length, then pull tight until strap secured within the buckle.

Lens Care

In order to enjoy the best views through your binocular, take time to regularly clean the exterior lenses:

  1. Remove any dust or grit from lenses before wiping. Use a can of pressurized air, soft camel hair brush, or an acrylic optical brush.
  2. Clear lenses of smudges, fingerprints, or eyelash oil. Fog the lenses with your own breath, then use a nonabrasive lens cloth to clean the lenses.

  1. Thread the wide end of the binocular tether straps through the harness strap buckles.
  2. Size to fit by adjusting the one-size-fits-all harness strap.
  3. Thread the binocular tether straps through the strap attachments on binocular.
  4. Thread the binocular tether straps back through the tether strap buckles to secure.

10 reviews for Vortex Optics Crossfire HD Binoculars

  1. Vince Migliore

    One word: “Wow!” Very pleased.First impressions:Purchased the Vortex Optics Crossfire HD Binoculars, 10×42 version.I bought these binoculars for bird watching, which has specific requirements as opposed to sports events and nature hikes. I wanted a large enough magnification that I could easily see the birds, but also with a wide enough field of view so that when a bird hops from one branch to another – something they are prone to do – that they wouldn’t be lost out of frame. I also wanted a fairly light weight and sturdy construction, all of which I found in my choice.These binoculars provide a crisp, clear image with no refraction. That is no colored fringes near the outer edges. The aperture is large enough that there is plenty of light gathering ability. Focusing is easy and natural, with the dial centrally located.This line is advertised as light weight, and it is, compared to other brands, but still it’s noticeable when hanging around your neck. This is not a complaint.CHOOSING MAGNIFICATION:For my whole life I’ve chosen and used bargain basement binoculars, usually 8X magnification. I thought 10X would be marginally better, but experts claim that when you use anything over 8 times, then the image can bounce around from your hand movements and shaking. I didn’t choose the 12X for that reason. The 10X that I purchased has noticeable jitters if held with one hand, but not so much that you lose track of the image. I’m glad I didn’t get the 12X. I’m quite pleased with the 10X, but I think I’d be just as happy with the 8X.CHOOSING FIELD OF VIEW:As mentioned above, I want the objective lens diameter to be large enough so that if a bird is on the move it would be easy to track and not fly out of range. The 42mm turns out to be perfectly suited to my needs. The next step up, 50mm may have made the binoculars bulkier and heavier, so I’m happy with this choice.ADJUSTMENTS:The inter-pupil distance adjustment was easy and intuitive. If the left and right sides are not adjusted to your eyes, you will see dark edges on the sides of the image. Once adjusted you don’t have to worry about this, unless you accidentally jar the adjustment.The diopter adjustment, likewise, was simple and intuitive. Once set up (if one of your eyes is weaker than the other) you can set once and forget about it.The neck strap was easy to install and adjust. No problems there.As mentioned in other reviews, the body strap for the carry bag it just too complicated. It reminds me of a medieval torture device. I discarded it and purchased a simple shoulder strap.MINOR COMPLAINT:I found that to see clearly through the binoculars and get a full field of view, your eye must be positioned exactly in the center of the eyepiece and at a specific distance from your eyeball. For me, this required me to hold the eyepiece about 3/8 inches from my eye. I found that resting my forefinger on my forehead, and the binocular eyepiece on the edge of my finger accomplished this nicely. The problem, however requires a more comfortable and reliable solution.I purchased a pair of 42mm rubber eye cushions that did the trick. That size rubber buffer is standard for microscopes, and are available for about $10 on the internet. See photos.CONCLUSION:All-in-all, I quite satisfied with this excellent product. It has made my bird-watching experience much more productive and enjoyable.

    Great sharpnessI got these as a gift for my husband. I would say these are midsize–bigger than the pocket version and smaller than the full size we used to own. For amateur birders, these are really nice. The sharpness of the viewing is pretty amazing and they are much stronger than any pocket-size binoculars. The price was also $100 less than we saw elsewhere. Overall we are very happy with them. Slight larger that we would like for hiking but the trade-off for a better image and longer viewing distance is worth it.

    Great Binos and a great valueI the Vortex Crossfite HD 12×50 back in November of 2020. I’ve been using them almost daily for over two years. They are incredible for the price. In my opinion, binos in the $1000-$1500 price range are not much better than these. These are high quality and come with a quality soft case and lense cloth. I would buy these again. If you’re on the fence, buy them. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Especially for under $200.

    Great Binos!! Especially for the price!Awesome set of Binos! Field of view was my main emphasis, but this is one of the few sets of binos that I have ever used that actually closes down to my pupillary distance. This allows me to get the most out of the binos. 8 x 42 HD is amazing and may be too much for what I need. I use them for birding in my backyard .

    Great Optics at this Price RangeI bought these to replace some old, low-end binocs at a mountain home for views and wildlife, and I couldn’t be happier. Yes, if you are a Zeiss etc fan then you’ll be disappointed but these don’t cost $1K either! Binocs have come a long way from only 20 years ago and unless you have money to burn or use them in some professional capacity, these should do a wonderful job in this magnification and size range.

    Very nice binoculars for the priceThese are very nice for the price. Perfect for checking livestock, they are powerful enough to see what’s going on

  9. tommie_boi

    Nothing specialNo better than my old 10×42 Vanguard binoculars. In terms of magnification very little difference, if any, between these 12×50 and 10×42. Plus picture not as clear as Vanguard’s. Oh, on focus wheel not as smooth as… Well, you get my point.
