With Phase-Corrected Coating and enhanced optical coatings - the CL Companion 8x30 Binocular (Green) 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, non-slip, easy-to-handle focusing wheel, and individually adjustable twist-in eyecups made from allergy-tested material - the CL Companion combines the proven precision of Swarovski Optik with exceptional value for the money.

Swarovski's P-coating and premium roof prisms eliminate color fringing and aberrations for maximum color-fidelity and contrast. Each optical surface has been treated with SWAROBRIGHT, SWAROTOP, and SWARODUR coatings to enhance light transmission, optical-quality, and viewing accuracy.

The CL Companions utilize a compact and thin bridge construction with thumb depressions on the underside of the binoculars for steady, balanced viewing comfort. This trim form-factor is relatively light and small enough to travel with easily. Its non-slip full rubber armoring is shock absorbing; protective of the fine optics. It is nitrogen filled to prevent internal fogging and is submersible to a water depth of 13 feet. This binocular is an impeccable world-class optical system that performs above and beyond its deceptive price.

      Comments about Swarovski CL Companion 8x30 Binocular (Green):

      Have used this a couple of time for birdwatching and am very pleased. I already own the 7x42 and 10x50 SLCs and always wanted a compact Swarovski. My wife has the 8x32 SLC but I have always hated the front focus knob and the eye relief was not enough since I wear glasses. The Cls seem to have just enough extra eyerelief to make them comfortable and the clarity is quite nice. I have read other reviews that the focus falls off near the edge. The pair I have also do this but it is minimal. The ergonomics are great and I have large hands. Overall I am very pleased.

        Comments about Swarovski CL Companion 8x30 Binocular (Green):

        I bought these because of the compact size and the quality of the images, primarily for birding. I was using a twenty five year old pair of 7x50 marine binoculars, and Swarovski 8x30 are so superior, especially in terms of ease of focus, sharpness of images, and better image in low light, there is no comparison. They were expensive, but they were worth it. And the size and weight is exactly what I was looking for.
