Designed for the discerning traveler and adventurer, the Swarovski 8×30 CL B Companion NOMAD Binocular is outfitted with an assortment of design details and accessories to create an optic with dignified and understated elegance, while preserving the performance Swarovski is known for. The brown leather armor and a leather field bag will age beautifully the more they are handled, and to maintain the weather resistance and ensure the leather stays supple, a beeswax and neatsfoot oil care kit is included. The binocular and all accessories are delivered in a laser-engraved wood presentation case.

The NOMAD utilizes Swarovski's iconic proprietary coating systems to deliver high-contrast images with accurate true-to-life color and virtually zero distortion across the entire generous field of view. Its 8x power magnifies the view while preserving a wide viewing angle and exit pupil to produce an immersive visual experience that shows expansive views so you won't have to move your head much while enjoying a sporting event on a large playing field or pitch. Styled and engineered with an ergonomic profile, a non-slip focusing wheel, and twist-up eyecups, it offers a comfortable viewing experience for long observation sessions.

Swarovski's SWAROBRIGHT phase-correcting coatings applied to their premium roof prisms eliminate color fringing and aberrations for enhanced color fidelity and contrast, while their SWAROTOP coatings on the other optical surfaces maximize light transmission, transmit neutral and natural color fidelity, and improve contrast and clarity. The outer lens surfaces are further coated with Swarovski's SWARODUR coatings, which offer scratch resistance and allow oils, saps, and water to bead off. This not only helps to keep the surfaces clear, it makes cleaning them easier.

Weighing just 17 ounces, the CL Companion chassis is made of a lightweight and strong magnesium alloy, with a short and compact bridge to further reduce weight. The bridge design, along with thumb depressions on the underside of the optical tubes, provides a large surface area for the hands with a comfortable and balanced feel in the hand. This trim form factor is relatively light and small enough to pack and travel with ease and won't cause strain when worn around the neck for prolonged periods. Its anthracite (charcoal) non-slip full rubber armoring provides shock resistance. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled to prevent internal fogging and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and submersible for short periods of time.
