The Swarovski 8x20 B Pocket Binocular is a tiny, watertight and fogproof binocular worthy of the esteemed Swarovski name.  It has a quite unusual optical formula, with 16 total lenses, that gives a large 6.6° field of view (for a compact 8x unit) and high image contrast from the center to the edge of the eyepiece.  The twin-bridge 8x20 B Pocket is a tough yet sophisticated companion for long journeys, with superior optical performance in daylight conditions versus more common binoculars.  It has Swarovski's proprietary SWAROBRIGHT, SWAROTOP, and SWARODUR multicoatings for extremely-bright, high contrast images.

The turning-type eyecups have just enough tension so that you can actually leave them in any intermediary position, rather than just fully extended or collapsed.  Focusing is done with either your 4th or 5th finger, at the end of the binocular furthest from you.

      Comments about Swarovski 8x20 B Pocket Binocular (Black):

      These are outstanding binoculars, backed up by an amazing company. The lifetime warranty on the optics is genuine. I purchased these binoculars over two decades ago, and have used them on wilderness expeditions on foot, in sea kayaks, and in whitewater canoes. They have been rained on, drenched in saltwater, rinsed repeatedly, and submerged in a class 4 rapid. Through it all they maintained their waterproof seal and excellent optical alignment. Finally, after many years of hard use (and perhaps abuse?) they fogged up. Well, I thought, "time to test that lifetime warranty!" I'm pleased to report that Swarovski stood behind their product. I contacted customer service, sent in my binoculars, and they sent them back--via FedEx--as good as new! There was no charge for this great service. These binoculars are not cheap, but they are a superb value. Great optics and customer service that really is second to none.

        Clear view, easily adjusted for multiple users, great for carry-on luggage. I now own two pair, one for my car console and one for my carry-on luggage to take on all trips.

        You cannot go wrong if you want great quality in a small package.
