Vortex Optics have designed and built the Bantam HD for those with both smaller hands and/or possibly smaller budgets. The Bantam’s compact size and minimal weight of just 410g, along with a 7.6 degree field of view, makes it ideal for the younger generation, as well as adults who like walking / hiking / cycling or just those who want a small “full-sized” featured binocular to slip into the pocket of an outdoor jacket. It even fits the glove box of most cars.

It’s waterproof, fogproof and shockproof build houses XR fully multi-coated lenses and an HD optical system for the standard of edge-to-edge sharpness and light transmission that you’d expect in a binocular at a much higher price.

    Excellent value. The relatively low power suits me (small garden). On a limited budget then why not give these a try. I am getting a second pair for my car glovebox!

    I was looking for a pair of of binoculars for our granddaughter. After a very informative discussion with Cley Spy I was advised to purchase the Vortex 6.5×32 Bantam. They were delivered next day. The binoculars were ideal and for the price amazing quality both optically and construction. Excellent value. Of note I thought the 6.5 magnification was ideal for a young birdwatcher. Maybe the close focussing could have been nearer but that is a minor detail. Thanks again to Cley Spy for their first rate service.
