Graced with fluoride HD lenses and enhanced optical coatings - the SLC 10x42 HD roof prism binocular from Swarovski delivers crystal-clear images with razor sharp outlines, and accurate true-to-life color. Styled and engineered with an ergonomic profile, thoughtfully-positioned controls, and a newly-designed super-fast and extremely-accurate focusing system - the SLC 42 HD delivers maximum comfort and confidence during extended viewing sessions.

Swarovski's HD lenses and premium roof prisms eliminate color fringing and aberrations for maximum color-fidelity and contrast. Each optical surface has been treated with a bounty of coatings to enhance light transmission, optical-quality, and viewing accuracy. The simply outstanding wide angle field-of-view is uber-realistic and nearly three-dimensional.

This particular SLC 42 HD is also known as the SLC 10x42 W B HD. The SLC stands for Slim, Light, and Compact - as evidenced by a trim form-factor that's relatively light and small enough to travel with easily. The W indicates that the optic is fully waterproof - it's nitrogen purged and sealed to ensure all-weather performance. Boasting a very accommodating 16 mm of eye relief earns the SLC 42 HD the right to bear the B in its name. Last but certainly not least, we come to HD - high definition - an impeccable world-class optical system that performs above and beyond the call of duty.

Optical Performance
  • AFOV: wide-angle - 63°
  • Phase-coated BAK4 roof prisms
  • HD optics: fluoride glass elements yield superior edge-to-edge sharpness and excellent twilight performance
  • Advanced optical coatings: SWAROTOP - anti-reflective multicoating: enhances light transmission. SWARODUR - enhances scratch resistance. SWAROBRIGHT - mirrored prism coating improves brightness and color reproduction under all lighting conditions. SWAROCLEAN - non-stick external coating makes cleaning/removing dried-on mineral residue, insect repellent, and tree resin easier. Over time the lens' surface will require less intensive cleaning which significantly increases the longevity of the optic.

          Comments about Swarovski SLC 10x42 HD Binocular (Forest Green):

          This is my second pair of binocs from Swarovski and they continue to amaze. Bought as upgrade from SLC 10x42 WB because this new model is lighter with closer focus. Field of view is bright, focus and diopter adjustment crisp and accurate. Used for field work with seabirds and general birdwatching. I have only good things to say about this product.

            Comments about Swarovski SLC 10x42 HD Binocular (Forest Green):

            I know most reviews for this item have been for bird watching, I am into horse racing and these binoculars give me a view of the entire track. I am not sure why I waited so long to get them. The price point is up there but you will be more than happy you have these. They are a weight that is manageable and I can focus on exactly what I want to see.
