Swarovski Binoculars Review
The Swarovski Binocular
If you're a hunter or bird watcher, the Swarovski binocular has a widespread reputation, both by consumers and industry, for its visual clarity, performance, durability and warranty protection.
Having binoculars is essential for those who love to engage in outdoor activities. Activities such as hunting and bird watching require binoculars. You want to see what you're looking for when hunting, to increase your situational awareness. And, while bird watching, you'd hate to miss those special moments nature gives you. It is a thrill to catch a glimpse of a rare bird, or even familiar birds for that matter. For either of these activities, you would require binoculars. While purchasing binoculars, make sure you go with quality. This is an investment. Swarovski is one brand that is known for its quality optical devices. Magnification and optic quality are two important reasons to look into Swarovski binoculars.
The Swarovski Binocular
Impressive Technology and Craftsmanship
The technology and craftsmanship that Swarovski Optiks puts into their binocular line is truly impressive. Nitrogen encasing for reduced fogging and moisture resistance, one finger focusing (great even with gloves on) which allows you to be able to carry your rifle or other gear with your other hand, including bird watching camera and tripod, while sighting, high end optics that are fully coated (SWAROCLEAN coating on the outside of the lens making cleaning easier) which gathers light extremely well, deliver high contrast, life like image quality, twist off eye cups which allow you to remove easily for cleaning, allow you to set the eye cup if you wear glasses, and allow you to change out to a doubler, which is a 2x magnification lens, which turns your binocular into a monocular telescope or spotting scope (this saves you some packing weight by eliminating another scope and reducing the weight of your gear).
Swarovski Optiks has a lifetime warranty on their optics. I've had several scopes and lenses which I had to return for warranty consideration, and they stand behind their product, either replacing or repairing what I sent them, no questions asked. It's truly impressive..

Binocular Price Ranges
The least expensive Swarovski binocular model costs around $600.00 and the most expensive model around $3,000 (as of the writing of this article 3/15/14). The Swarovski pocket binoculars are the lowest costing models and can be found in the $600.00 to $800.00 price range, while the most expensive Swarovski Optik 8x42 EL Range Waterproof Roof Prism Binocular with 7.8 Degree Angle of View & Laser Rangefinder binoculars model is available in the $2,900.00 to $3,000.00 price range. A high price range for the average consumer, but you most certainly get what you pay for here..
What Do You Use Binoculars For?
Any Setting / Most Conditions - Great Binoculars
Swarovski binoculars and scopes are widely acknowledged as number one in the industry. Swarovski binoculars and scopes perform brilliantly in any hunting or bird watching setting: mountains, near water, fields or woods. Sharpness and clarity will be the norm even in long range shooting/viewing and extreme weather. I won't go hunting or bird watching without the Swarovski binocular, and once you have one, you won't either.. It's an incredible piece of gear to have in your pack.
Swarovski CL Pocket Binoculars
The CL Pocket binocular offers unique optical performance - high-contrast, sharp and color-true images provide unforgettable viewing experiences.
Swarovski Pocket Binoculars
Swarovski binoculars are available in a foldable design. They are compact in size, and can be carried pretty much anywhere. As far as their performance is concerned, the pocket binoculars provide you with insanely clear images. The overall precision in these models are unbeatable. So, if you're looking for a small sized binocular with precision and clarity, then Swarovski pocket binoculars would be perfect for your needs.
Some of these pocket binoculars magnify by 8 times and some by 10 times.
- The Swarovski Optiks Pocket 8 x 20 B-P (Green) and 8 x 20 B-P (Black), the Traveler, Tyrol and the three crystal ones, the Tosca, Nabucco and Idomeneo - all have magnification of 8 times. Better for sporting events and stationary bird watching, due to the optics being better with quicker motion viewing.
- The Swarovski Optiks Pocket Binocular (10 x 25 B-P, Green) and the 10 x 25 B-P, Black, as well as the Traveler have magnification of 10 times. The 10 times power gives you more magnification, but makes finding and following an object more challenging, since movement is exaggerated with higher power. I like this one more for hunting, for spotting purposes and less fast movement viewing.
