Improved viewing, intuitive use, individual style – SWAROVSKI OPTIK will be launching the new CL Companion on 6 November 2017, its new generation of binoculars for travel and leisure. The latest product in the CL family sets new standards with its advanced optical and mechanical design. The binoculars are easy to use and guarantee excellent viewing comfort with extraordinary image quality. Thanks to its very special features, the CL Companion is the perfect companion for anyone seeking the freedom to experience more during their travel or leisure activities.

“Whenever you pick up the new CL Companion you are right in the moment. Whether you’re out kayaking, walking through a nature reserve, or enjoying the views from a scenic overlook, your eyes and the binoculars work together in complete harmony. Seeing takes on a whole new dimension and the observer becomes one with the wonder of nature.” This is how Carina Schiestl-Swarovski, Chairwoman of the Executive Board of SWAROVSKI OPTIK, describes the benefits of these compact binoculars, which have been designed with the specific needs of the travel and leisure market in mind.

See: New optics concept for unique moments
A key element of the binoculars is their new balanced optics concept. This provides every user with an unforgettable yet comfortable viewing experience with high-contrast images that are razor-sharp and colour-true. The new CL Companion also delivers an impressive 132-metre (433-foot) field-of-view, creating even more scope for fascinating discoveries.

Feel: Intuitive handling for total comfort
Intuitive, ergonomic, and exquisitely made – the CL Companion really is the perfect companion. The binoculars are both lightweight and rugged thanks to their slim, compact design and solid magnesium housing. The carrying strap with rotating quick connector adapts smoothly to every movement. The CL Companion is available in two magnifications (8×30 and 10×30) and two colours: green and anthracite.

Create: Individually designed accessory packages
The accessory packages are inspired by nature and are as individual as the users of the CL Companion, all consisting of a field bag with carrying strap and a binocular strap. These premium accessories in matching styles and colours are extremely fashionable yet still grant optimum protection. Customers can choose from three different designs – NORTHERN LIGHTS, URBAN JUNGLE, and WILD NATURE – and pick the package that best suits their personal style. As with most SWAROVSKI OPTIK binoculars and spotting scopes, the new CL Companion can be easily connected to a SWAROVSKI OPTIK phone adapter. This makes it ideal for enjoying close-up encounters with nature while having the ability to instantly capture and share those special moments.
