These reliable, multipurpose binoculars stand out thanks to their SWAROVISION technology, guaranteeing the highest image quality. The EL 8.5x42 binoculars are intended for a wide variety of hunting and are also a good choice for hunting up until twilight. The EL 10x42 binoculars are perfect for longer distances, with their legendary EL wrap-around grip allowing you to control the 10x magnification well.
Made by Swarovski Optik, these EL 42 binoculars features the company's signature Swarovision technology for optimal image resolution over the entire field of view. The technology features a combination of field flattener lenses and high-definition optics that yields outstanding contrast, even when you're using the binoculars at dusk. Even the finest structures and smallest details are reproduced with razor-sharp clarity. The fluoride-containing HD lenses minimize color-fringing for contrast-rich images with razor-sharp outlines.

The binoculars are also notable for the greater eye relief of the exit pupil that they provide. This enables even people who wear glasses to survey the entire wide-angle field of view.

Enhanced coatings on the lenses and prisms yield absolutely lifelike color reproduction and outstanding image brightness for spectacular observation experiences, even at dusk. The Swaroclean coating on the outer surface of the lens ensures a non-stick effect, making it easy to clean.
