    I just spent four days scouting the Avintaquin mountains in Utah in preparation for my first Elk hunt later this Fall.  I brought along the Vortex Solo 10x36.  After testing it in the field I can say I'm very satisfied with my purchase, and I'm glad I bought it over some of the other optics that were available.

    Pros:
    -The Solo 10x is the same power as my hunting scope, which helps me as I familiarize myself with gauging distance
    - It weighs less than comparable binoculars while still providing the same magnification
    -It is less bulky and more portable than any binocular I've ever used.
    -It cost about half as much as any of the binoculars
    -This thing is built SOLID.  It really does feel sturdy in your hand.  And I'm reassured by the Vortex guarantee that backs up all of their optics in case of any damage. 

    Cons:
    -The saleswoman pointed out to me when I purchased the Solo that because I would be holding it one-handed I would have less control and therefor notice more shake in the image than I would with a pair of binoculars.  She referenced her own shaky hands for why she did not use one.  While this may be the experience of some, I did not find it to be the case for me.  I was able to see clearly even out to the furthest distances without any noticeable shaking of the image.

    Another thing I noted while I was shopping for optics is that because I have an unusual eyeglass prescription (one of my eyes is near-sighted while the other is far-sighted) I seem to have difficulty seeing clear, crisp images through binoculars.  Unless you want to buy a VERY high end pair of binocs you cannot find a pair that has independent diopter adjustment for each eye.  When I tried a monocular the trouble was resolved; I only had to focus the lens for one eye.  That took away a lot of distraction from using the device.  Where I found myself constantly fiddling with the binoculars, the monocular was easy to use every time.

    I got this before the bigger size came out and I wish I had waited.  I do take this with me every time I am bow hunting because the size and clarity make it better in certain situations than my binoculars.  For bow hunting I would recommend the 10x32 or the 8x25 but overall I am happy with mine.

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Solo Monocular - Green:

    I use this for deer hunting. Great glass fits in my small hand very well. I'm able to operate with one hand..the only thing I don't like is the velcro strap for the case..makes it loud for hunting

    I got my Solo for Christmas and was excited to get it out in the woods I used in for late season deer and coyote. Nice lite weight perfect power to see details without lugging bino around your neck Nice clip on the side. I would recommend them in a heart beat.

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Solo Monocular - Green:

    Have used this on hunts, vacations, bird watching, and everything in between! It is small enough you have no reason not to take it on your adventures. Great clarity and I can't repeat enough just how nice it is when you and the family are traveling and you want to see something.

    It also has a great tactical application for low-visibility use due to it's size.

    Ok monocular for the money

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Solo Monocular - Green:

    I bought this to carry with me for bow hunting. The image isn't extremely clear at really any range. I bought it online through cabelas and wish I had gone somewhere and looked through one before I pulled the trigger and got it. That being said, for the price it does its job.

    I picked this up because I have a hard time focusing both eyes in a set of binoculars. This is very well made, protected well, and the glass is super clear. I use it for hunting mainly, but also keep it in my squad car if I would need to use it. I would defiantly buy another one.

    Amazing customer service

    By 

    from Ontario, Canada

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Solo Monocular - Green:

    God optics. It's difficult to really judge optics in the store - really you have to get away from the well-lit fluorescent lights to really judge. I took a cheaper monocular to the store for a comparison. To be honest, I didn't notice a huge difference in the store (but I bought it anyway based on good reviews). The difference really became apparent while comparing the two at dusk/twilight while camping.

    I don't usually write reviews but as the title suggests I wanted to give big thumbs up for their customer service. I had to return the product for a loose lens very shortly after purchasing it. Customer service up here in Canada promptly emailed me a return shipping label with postage included, and shipped a new product back to within a few days. Three cheers for Amber in the Canadian office in Guelph!

    Now the monocular is not really one of their high-end products, so I was doubly impressed at the level of service. It's so refreshing to purchase a product and find there's excellent support if required.

    Oh, and somebody picked up the phone when I called- no automated attendant. That's worth alot to me right there.

    Great value

    By 

    from Sweden

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Solo Monocular - Green:

    I bought the 10x36 model early 2016 and I have been waiting to write a review until I had a chance to test it. I am very impressed with the crisp and clear optics and the excellent performance when the light is low. I live in Sweden, where the sun is up all summer and where it gets dark at 15.00 in the winter.

    I would say the neoprene cover is better than the carrier case shown in the manual. I have both thanks to Vortex excellent customer service that sent me one free of charge. The neoprene cover give a better protection if, for instance, if you fumble and drop the monocular on a rock (as I have done a couple of times) or when you shove it into your knapsack. It is small and light, so you will bring it on the stroll or the day hike.

    All in all, a great piece of optics for a great price.

    Great Compact Tool

    By 

    from Sacramento, CA

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Solo Monocular - Green:

    Great product. I used it on a couple of trips and really enjoyed it. The compact size makes the Solo a breeze to pack (whether in a backpack or carry on bag). Despite the small size, the rubberized body is just large enough to grip and handle easily, including adjusting the focus. The Solo survived in the Rockies and in the tropics of Central America without hiccup. Great compromise if you cannot carry full binoculars and want to take a closer look at something.

    I purchased this optic for backpacking. Took it to Mt Rainier and was able to see more wild life and even helped me navigate. I am super happy with how clear light weight and rugged it is.
