Summary: Ive used these for a few weeks now and they are great for small binos. The field of veiw is smaller than like 8by30s or 10by42s and they're not as good as my 10by42s at first light or last light but if you need a small or light pair these are great to pack.
Summary: I have two pairs of Swaro pocket binos, and I love them. Excellent Swaro glass, amazing coatings, great field of view. Armored, compact, powerful. These are the last pair of pocket binos you will need. I use them for bird watching, duck hunting, cruises, scenic travel. A bit too powerful for concerts. I use my 8x Swaros instead.
Summary: For reference, I have used more than ten different sets of binoculars and also own a set of Canon 10x42 IS L and a set of Nikon Sportstar 10x25. These Swarovski 10x25 are quite simply amazing. If you have never looked through top quality glass then you may well not realise the difference. My Canon set cost more than twice as much and optically these are easily as good. The Canon’s have IS though and that feature is a real game changer.
Summary: I've now had my 10x25B's for a few years and there is no other comparable set of binoculars in this range on the market. The clarity and brightness are superb, and although I have taken these binoculars with me on many trips, there has been no degradation in the view through the sights, so the complicated optic system inside is quite stable.
Outstanding performance from such diminutive optics

Summary: If you are looking for a pair of pocket binoculars with incredible light transmission, excellent image contrast, superb edge-to-edge definition and natural colour balance, all combined with a very light weight, then look no further. When compared to my Swarovski EL 8.5 x 42's in bright conditions it begs the question of how have they managed to make them with such image brightness. These Swarovskis are amazing. They are truly compact and fold up to approx.
Summary: These are, in my opinion, the best 10x pocket binoculars that money can buy. The luminosity is extraordinary and the view deeply three dimensional. I examined many binoculars before making up my mind and nothing else, including Leica, were a match for these beautifully tactile and well made binoculars. Highly recommended.
