Maven C.1 8 x 42 Binoculars Review

The Vortex Viper is one of the best binoculars in its class. They are very lightweight and compact which makes them ideal for everyday use.

However, they do have their drawbacks; namely, the low magnification (8x) and small field of view (12 degrees). If you want something with a higher magnification but smaller field of view then the Maven C.1 8 x 42 Binoculars would be a better choice.
