Sporting an ultra-wide field of view, long eye relief, and comfortable exit pupil—all in a compact magnesium housing—the Swarovski 10x42 NL Pure Binoculars are the middle magnification entry in the series, striking the perfect balance between power and handling, making them ideal for mid- to long-range applications.

The NL Pure also employs extra-low dispersion (HD) glass elements and a range of proprietary optical coatings that, when combined with its other performance features, creates a set of glasses that delivers impressive image quality and durability. In keeping with its tradition of high-performance optics, Swarovski uses highly reflective roof prisms and fully multicoated fluorite-containing HD glass lenses to deliver superior image quality. A field-flattener lens system complements the glass and coatings to keep the edges of the view crisp and sharp. The resulting views are rich with detail and saturated with lifelike color with exceptional contrast and resolution.

In addition to its high-transmission optical system, Swarovski also equips the NL Pure binoculars with a range of design elements that improve the handling experience. A re-engineered bridge and focus system provide smooth movement in a short configuration, so you have more of the optical tubes to grip. Covering the magnesium-alloy housing is Swarovski's iconic rubber armoring that provides impact protection and a positive grip where they are needed most. The housing is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be resistant to internal fogging and waterproof to a depth of 13 feet. Additional features like tethered front and rear caps, soap and brush cleaning kit, carrying case, and neck strap round out the thoughtful details that make the NL Pure stand out.

Optical Performance

  • High 10x magnification allows for detailed observation of distant subjects
  • 42mm objective lenses draw in the light required to extend its use in challenging conditions without being too bulky or heavy
  • Compact roof prism light path keeps the optical tubes thin for easier handling and packing
  • Field-flattener lenses eliminate spherical aberration & edge distortion and correct off-axis comas & astigmatism for crisp and sharp images across the entire field of view
  • HD Optical System: Fluorite-containing glass virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations to enhance color fidelity and brightness
  • SWAROBRIGHT, WAROTOP, SWARODUR coatings
  • Ultra-wide 70° apparent angle of view greatly reduces the appearance of distracting hand shake while presenting sweeping views of the scene in front of you—providing an immersive and near panoramic observational experience that requires very little head movement to see everything
  • Spacious 399-foot field of view at 1000 yards
Proprietary Swarovski Lens Coatings:
  • Highly reflective SWAROBRIGHT mirror prism coating optimizes color fidelity, contrast, and resolution
  • Anti-reflection SWAROTOP lens coating reduces glare and improves contrast
  • Scratch-resistant SWARODUR lens coatings protects the lenses to ensure views remain crisp and sharp

Use and Handling

  • Short closed-bridge configuration provides a stable platform for the internal focusing mechanism
  • Large knurled focus wheel is easy to manipulate in cold and wet weather or when wearing gloves
  • ±4 diopter adjustment on the bridge enables precise focusing even for users who normally wear corrective lenses
  • 56-74mm interpupillary adjustment range accommodates users of all sizes
  • Twist-up click-stop rubber eye cups for comfortable viewing with or without eyewear
  • Exceptional 18mm eye relief helps to eliminate eye strain, especially during long glassing sessions
  • 4.2mm exit pupil will cover most pupils in low or fading light conditions, ensuring the entire scene remains in view without vignetting

Construction Details

  • Innovative engineering allows the focusing mechanism to fit precisely into a compact bridge without compromising performance for freedom of movement
  • Lightweight and durable magnesium housing
  • Nitrogen filled for fog and waterproof performance
  • Iconic Swarovski textured green armor provides impact resistance while offering a slip-resistant grip
  • Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof to a depth of 13 feet and resistant to internal fogging when moving between extreme changes in temperature or environmental conditions
  • Broad -13 to 131°F operating temperature range
  • Relatively compact design is slightly more than 6" long and 5" wide
  • Weight: 30 ounces

Included Accessories

  • Cleaning kit: Users get a brush and soap to clean the armor and preserve its look while adding longevity
  • Universal comfort strap prevents fatigue with an ergonomic design, wide neck section, water-wicking materials, and a simple, yet effective, bayonet catch connection
  • Functional side bag keeps your binocular close and ready for fast glassing on the go with a 2-way zipper that wraps around three sides for full and complete access; includes a carrying strap
  • Tethered one-piece ocular rainguard and objective lens covers protect the lens surfaces without the fear of losing them when using the binoculars; special objective cap connection eliminates unsightly rubber retention rings for a refined and seamless look

Is the 10X42 NL a good birding Bino especially if you use optional forehead rest?
Asked by: Robert
Yes, it's excellent for that purpose, especially with the very wide field of view. The 10x is a bit harder to hold steady. But even without the forehead rest, it can be very stable with proper technique and some practice, I find that it is just fine. Absolutely astounding views.

Is the the 10X42 NL good for birding If you use the optional forehead rest?
Asked by: Robert
Yes. Very wide field of view (both actual and apparent) for a 10x binocular, spectacular optics. Without the headrest it takes a bit more effort and proper technique to hold steady compared to an 8x, but with a bit of practice it's fine (unless you have unsteady hands to begin with). So I imagine with the headrest, it's even easier. Everything about this binocular and the accessories says top of the line quality.
