It's hard to believe Swarovski can pack its renowned optical excellence into a compact 25mm binocular, but they did! A surprisingly wide field of view and generous eye relief provides easy viewing of the bright, sharp, edge-to-edge images. Take a look through the CL binocular and it will become your constant companion. Swarovski provides a limited lifetime warranty for the CL Companion.

Best Binoculars on a Salmon River
Ridgerunner from Maine
Having recently purchased the Swarovski CL 8x25 binoculars, my use is principally for navigating Atlantic salmon rivers - where travelling down a rapids-infested river requires examining the state of flow, the river edges for walking, as well as scanning pools for telltale ripples of aggressive salmon. One handed use, waterproofing, easy placement in front of the eyes, with compactness are all needed. These passed - in fact I believe they are the best compacts out there for such explorations. I compared them directly with Zeiss Victory 8x32s, and found these Swarovski bins were indistinguishable in clarity. The downside is a narrower field of field, and slightly more care needed in placing the binoculars in front of the eyes, so for birding they could work, but the Zeiss would be preferred. That is it. They were crisp and sharp edge to edge in my estimation. If one were going to the Himalayas (I spent 24 months hiking there many years ago) I would take these Swarovski 8x25s. Same for kayaking in Maine and Nova Scotia. Also, if one is principally into photography, on foot, the Swarovski bins would be the ones to take, weighing less while being razor sharp. These...are...the...ones. Period.
Best Compact Binocular on the market
Earl D. from Westerville, Oh
If you need a compact binocular or if you just want a lightweight binocular, I highly recommend these. They are much easier to use and outperform any 8x20 premium binocular I've owned or tried. They fold up compactly and easily fit into my bike bag and car storage compartments, etc. The focus wheel is very easy to turn and very smooth. The optics are of course excellent, with edge to edge sharpness.
Pretty decent binoculars
Rick from Florida
I recently purchased these bins. They are compact, and pretty bright for their size.
I think they are a little over priced, but very good just the same.
499 would be a better price. One thing i do not like is that the focus wheel is loose.
I do not know if it's supposed to be this way, or if its a defect. I prefer it to be tighter.
I am not sure how to tighten up myself.
A new favorite
Mark from PA
I use compact binoculars often, including the Leica 8x20 Ultravid and the Bushnell 7x26 Elite. Both of those are excellent, but the Swarovski is my new favorite. It's bigger and heavier than the Leica and calling it a "pocket" binocular might be a stretch for some users. But it's also considerably brighter than the Leica and has an easier view because of the larger exit pupil. Folded, the Swarovski is more compact than the Bushnell and the color seems more neutral. It works really well with glasses, the focus is very light and smooth, and the overall quality can't be beat. All three are excellent compacts, but the Swaro is my new favorite.
Excellent pocket binocular
Craig T from Tucson AZ
Optical quality of these pocket binoculars is excellent . Eye relief (17mm) is good if you wear glasses. Focus wheel works well
Weight is greater than competitors ..whether this is an issue depends on personal preference. The strap is a bit uncomfortable
These optics cannot replace a larger birding binocular but can serve as a useful very portable backup pair
