Swarovski Pocket Overview

  • 1Description

The green 8x25 CL Pocket Binocular from Swarovski is a lightweight and convenient close- to mid-range optic that combines the build quality and image quality that nature enthusiasts have come to expect from Swarovski. This addition to their lineup of compact binoculars features a unique dual-hinge bridge that is scalloped on the underside to allow the barrels to fold underneath the concave bridge for a reduced footprint; when folded, the 8x25 measures only 4.3x2.5x1.8"—compact enough for a cargo pocket or side pocket of a daypack. The folding bridge design also gives the CL Pocket binocular its broad, 48-74mm interpupillary range that can be adjusted to fit children and adults alike.

In addition to the noteworthy compactness of the CL Pocket series binoculars, these glasses are packed with Swarovski's usual gamut of premium optical features, including fully multi-coated glass, comfortable 17mm eye relief, 52° apparent viewing angle, and a minimum focus distance of 8.2 ft. Swarovski also packages their CL Pocket series with a Field Bag carrying case that has a zippered closure, separate accessory pocket, belt loop, and ripstop nylon interior lining.

A water-sealed aluminum housing equips the CL Pocket binocular for reliable, shock-resistant performance in extreme temperatures and driving rain. Additional user-friendly features include twist-up eyecups made of hypoallergenic material and a textured center focus wheel that is slightly recessed into the bridge for a more streamlined silhouette. The 8x25 CL Pocket fuses portability and performance, making it a go-anywhere compact binocular that is big on image quality.

Swarovski Pocket Reviews

8x25 CL Pocket Binocular (Green) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 12.
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 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 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 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 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.

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.
