Developed to give hunters and birders a slightly higher magnification over standard 8x optics while preserving a wide-angle field of view and limiting visible hand shake common in higher power glasses, Swarovski's green 8.5x42 EL42 Binoculars feature a high-transmission optical path, legendary Swarovski optical coatings, and a weather-sealed magnesium-alloy housing.

The ELs employ a suite of SWAROVISION coatings and technologies that enhance the user experience, including SWAROBRIGHT, SWAROTOP, SWARODUR, SWAROCLEAN, phase-correcting P-coatings, field-flattener lenses, and fluoride glass. These technologies work seamlessly to produce bright and clear high-contrast and high-resolution images with true color fidelity and virtually no distortion across the entire wide 65° field of view. The 8.5x magnification, coupled with wide-angle viewing and generous 42mm objectives, make this EL ideal for a diverse range of observational situations, from birding and hunting to sightseeing and terrain navigation, with enhanced low-light capabilities over small-objective binoculars.

Complementing the optical performance is a lightweight and durable magnesium-alloy chassis that can withstand a life in extreme conditions. Their nitrogen-filled optical tubes are water and fogproof to ensure performance in all weather and environments without internal fogging when moving quickly between wide temperature ranges. An ergonomic, wraparound green rubber armor ensures that the binoculars will remain comfortable in the hand during long glassing sessions and helps to maintain a sure grip when it's cold and wet. This version of the EL comes with Swarovski's FieldPro package that features their proprietary rotating pin attachment and adjustment system for the strap that improves mobility and comfort over conventional systems. Included with the binoculars are the FieldPro bag, carrying strap, tethered objective lens covers, and a soft rubber tethered ocular rainguard.
