I just received a pair of the new Vortex Kaibab model 15x56 binoculars that I am evaluating for Vortex Optics. Wow, great quality. More on this unit later. Anyway, it got me to thinking about trying to go lighter this fall when hunting out west. Usually I carry 10x42 binocs plus 12-40 spotting scope plus tripod. The 15x56 binocs may be enough...leave the other stuff in the car. Anyone else do something like this?
