Combining durability with lightweight portability, the Vortex VMX-3T Magnifier ensures that you got what you need at all times without even having to sweat about having to carry a heavy bulky scope while you do a ton of physical activity. That is why this device is made out of high-quality plastic.

The plastic material ensures that the scope is not prone to breakage, especially when dropped or crushed with some weight. It also ensures that the device is light enough to be carried around in your pocket or purse without adding a significant amount of weight to you as you go about your adventure or exploration.

The built in this scope not only makes it lightweight and very portable, it also allows for a simpler design that is user-friendly. Aside from being easy to use, it is also fast and efficient in magnifying objects or sceneries from far away.

This makes the device highly recommended, especially if it is your first time to own a monocular. First-time monocular users of this brand will not find it difficult to operate and will find that its features are at par with more expensive and complicated monocular scopes in the market.

It quickly magnifies up to three times the normal size of red dot sights so you can get a better view of something or somewhere far up ahead. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, it is such a convenience to be able to just pull out the device when needed to view something you’d like to get a clearer and nearer view of.

And the best thing about it is that you can whip it out of your pocket in a flash. Whether it’s a rare bird in the sky or an elusive buck in the distance, you will definitely be thankful that you have this scope in your pocket.

The Vortex VMX-3T Magnifier with Flip Mount can be relied on even in the wettest conditions such as very wet weather or on boat trips or adventures involving water such as rivers, lakes, or swamps. This is because it is purged internally with nitrogen so that the scope is still very reliable even in the dampest of circumstances.

The nitrogen purging keeps the device undeniable dry from within so you can expect that it can withstand a lot of water. Since it efficiently keeps moisture out, this means that the device will also be highly resistant to any fog formation within the lens.

A fully multi-coated optics pieces also give you the best view you can ever experience from a good monocular. A fully multi-coated optic feature from any monocular scope lens puts it on the very top of the hierarchy of lenses available in the market today.

So despite the practicality and the handiness of the Vortex VMX-3T Magnifier with Flip Mount, you can still be assured of top-quality images through this scope. It has an eye relief of 2.2 inches which allow you to view it at a 2.2-inch distance from the eyepiece without distorting the view.

This is especially great for those who use eyeglasses or for people who just want to keep the eyepiece away from direct contact with their eyes. What makes it special is its push button design which engages or disengages the flip-mount of the device which locks the magnifier in place so that you can easily magnify or de-magnify an object at will.


This scope has received a handful of complaints regarding its eye relief. Since it has a fairly high number with eye relief compared to other scopes in the market, this may be probably best for people with glasses who actually need to have the scope somewhere farther away from their actual eye.

It could be a bit of a discomfort for some people to have to hold the scope with the eyepiece so far back from them. Try to reconsider if you are not exactly comfortable with this arrangement.


The Vortex VMX-3T Magnifier scope is absolutely perfect if you are looking for a simple device that is not complicated and easy to use, with good features and a trusty built that you can use for a long time. It is specifically a good one if you wear glasses or if you do not mind having some distance between you and the eyepiece.
