Swarovski Pocket overview

  • 1Description

The Swarovski Optik 8x25 CL Pocket Mountain Binocular is a lightweight and convenient close- to mid-range optic that combines the quality construction and viewing precision that nature enthusiasts have come to expect. To help offset the relatively small objectives and to ensure bright and crisp views, the CL Mountain utilizes the iconic Swarovski SWAROBRIGHT, SWAROTOP, and SWARODUR lens coatings. These coatings work together to produce bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate color rendition across the entire field of view.

This addition to the CL family features a dual-hinge bridge that allows the optical barrels to fold tightly underneath for a space-saving compact footprint that can easily fit in a pocket, pack, or purse. The folding bridge design also gives it a broad interpupillary range to accommodate a wide range of users from children to adults. To withstand the rigors of the outdoors, the lightweight aluminum chassis is wrapped in a protective rubber armor accented with textured palm pads to improve its slip-resistant grip. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof to a depth of 13 feet, while being resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes or environmental conditions.

Swarovski Pocket reviews

8x25 CL Pocket Mountain Binocular is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BRILLIANT DESIGN, SUPERB QUALITY I thought what I wanted was impossible compact binoculars that eliminated the usual problems with even the best compacts the darkened image, the tiny focusing knob, the blackouts whenever the eyes are moved. Apparently, Swarovski set out to design such a compact...and succeeded. The image on the 8x25 CL is unusually bright, the handling is superb, with a large, smooth focusing knob, and the unusually long eye relief has all but eliminated blackouts. Wonderful to use, and is still very light. Sharpness and color rendition are up with the best I've seen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swarovski Quality Always At Hand If you demand Swarovski quality optics and you want your bins always at hand, then the 8x25 CL Pocket Binoculars by Swarovski are your answer. The binoculars are smaller, but more convenient than my larger Swarovski binoculars. I did not notice much difference other than magnification between the pocket binoculars and my EL's. The image is bright and clear. The ditch adjustment is a little more difficult, but using them with my glasses on is no problem. The beauty of the CL Pocket Binoculars is that I always have them with me. I am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb! Best 8x25 today, especially for eye glass wearers. After testing dozens (literally) of binoculars, I bought this. It is great for eyeglass wearers (as well as those who don't wear glasses). Optically, this is amazingly close to the top of the line Swarovski EL42 and EL32 binoculars that cost more than double the price. Even in low light, this 8x23 comes surprisingly close to its bigger brothers, while providing fantastic portability and compactness, at a fraction of the cost. Every binocular may or may not work for a specific individual, so you have to personally test if it fits you. If it does, you can enjoy the amazing optics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Pocket Bino This is probably the best 8x25 out there, better than SW's own old 8x20. It is definitely bigger(longer)and heavier than the 8x20, but with a much brighter (and flat) view, better eye relief, and still much smaller than any 8x32. However, remember this is still a x25 pocket, don't expect the same level of comfort of 8x32 and up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Binoculars for a Bird Photographer I bought this Swarovski 8x25 CL for its very light size. I also own two pairs of Zeiss 8x32 Victory T Fl that I generally use for birdwatching. But since then I purchased a Nikon 300mm PF lens and with my Nikon D7200 have fallen in love with bird photography. The result? The razor sharp Swarovski 8x25 CL has been the binoculars I take along. Their light weight makes up for a somewhat narrower field of view that I get with the Zeiss Victory 8x32. I love them both, but the Swarovski better fits the need as the eye optics to go with the camera system. Very rugged, and lots of eye relief for my graduated trifocal eye glasses. I find the focus is easy, crisp and sharp. These binoculars were far better than expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Image, Perfect Size After using a borrowed SLC, I've long wanted top quality binoculars with an excellent image. The CL Pocket provides this in a nice, compact size. A pleasure to use - good for hiking and traveling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice second pair After so many times out not with the intention of birding and wanting to see one, I now have a pair I can keep with me. The quality makes up for the small exit pupil to give a bright view. Love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When only the best will do Perfect complement to my EL10x50s, without the weight. Crisp, clear optics, ample eye relief, with or without glasses. Mechanically sound, and fold into a very compact size.
