In this Stealth Vision Binoculars Review we will take an in depth look at these high quality optics that were developed by Dr. John McCall JR.
As an Optometrist, Dr.McCall used his background in geometrical and physiological optics to bring you the first hunting binoculars to use the same technology that is used in surgical microscopes to enhance transmission of light and color, creating a superior hunting binocular in clarity and low light performance.
The Stealth Vision Binoculars come in 10x42, which is perfect for hunting and they are far superior to any other 10x42 binoculars on the market.
Best 10x42 Hunting Binoculars
I was a little reluctant to spend the money for these binoculars, but I was assured that they were going to be the best hunting binoculars that I have reviewed yet, so I splurged and picked up a pair to try.
The first thing that I noticed was how compact they are for 10x42 binoculars.
My go-to deer hunting binoculars are 8x42 Nikon Monarch 7s, and as you can see in the photo below, the Stealth Vision 10x42s are smaller than the Nikon M7 8x42s.
They are slightly smaller, but they do weigh slightly more. The Stealth Vision 10x42 weighs in at 25.6 ounces and the Nikon M7 weighs in at 23.9 ounces.
I really like the padded storage case with the clip to hold it closed.
My Nikon's storage case closes with velcro, which is annoyingly loud for hunting binoculars.
The next thing that I noticed when I removed the binoculars from the case is that the Stealth Vision binos have eyepiece covers that fit nice and snug, while the Nikons literally fall right off constantly.
Also, the Stealth Vision objective lens covers are tethered, just like the Nikons. That is one of my favorite features.
No more lost lens covers!
I was very excited to take the Stealth Vision binoculars outside and compare them to my favorite binoculars.

Stealth Vision Binoculars Quality
The Stealth Vision binoculars are manufactured with the highest quality components including a lightweight aluminum body, extra-low dispersion (ED) fully multi coated glass and nitrogen purged for waterproof and fogproof performance.
In fact, they are guaranteed waterproof to 3 meters, so no worries if you drop them in shallow water.
As you know, we love companies that stand behind the quality of their products, and Stealth Vision proves this by offering an unconditional lifetime warranty on their binoculars.

Design and Functionality
Design and functionality is where the Stealth Vision Binoculars shine.
The innovative roof prism with “total reflective Ocular surface mirror “. This is used in ocular surgical microscopes and reflects 99.7% of surgical laser energy.
This exceeds the di-electric coating used by Swarovski by 3-4% and offered at half the price of the Swarovski binoculars.
Resulting in brighter, more vivid images seen through the binoculars.
This has never been used in binoculars before and is an incredible upgrade to the binoculars that you are used to.
The compact design of the Stealth Vision binoculars fits perfectly in your hands, with the center focus knob comfortably reached for effortless focus while scanning different distances.
The center focus knob turns very smoothly, almost liquid like.
The grip of the binoculars body is textured for a slip free grip and is very comfortable. I do wish that the textured area extended a little farther on the top of the binoculars.
As stated earlier, the design of the lens covers is top notch and other binocular companies could take a lesson from Stealth Vision on this one.
All in all, they feel great in your hands and perform flawlessly from a design and functionality standpoint.

Wrapping Up The Stealth Vision Binoculars Review
At first, I was reluctant to spend over $1000 on a pair of hunting binoculars, but after putting the Stealth Vision binoculars to the test, I am glad that I did.
They have earned the number one spot in my hunting binocular arsenal and if you are looking for a high end pair of binoculars that will outperform any other binos out there at that price point, then the Stealth Vision Binos should be added to your hunting gear as well.
