SWAROVSKI OPTIK NORTH AMERICA Announces CL Pocket Binoculars

 

Cranston, Rhode Island – SWAROVSKI OPTIK NORTH AMERICA, a subsidiary of the Austrian based company announces the new CL Pocket binoculars. The new CL Pocket binoculars are the perfect binoculars for everyone who would like a pair of binoculars with excellent optical performance, a high level of viewing comfort coupled with a compact size, thanks to the folding bridge design.

CL Pocket binoculars will accompany you wherever you go and whatever you do, they are the perfect companion, offering unique optical quality of the highest order, all in a handy design. Enjoy high-contrast, sharp, true-color images that you’ll never forget. For optimum viewing comfort, the exit pupil was shifted back – with the benefit of permitting even eyeglass wearers a 100% field of view. Correct adjustment of pupil distance and the twist-in eyecups is important for this function. When closed, the CL Pocket is a compact pair of binoculars; opened up, it is a full-sized pair of binoculars that does not allow for any compromises, offering a large field of view, total eyeglass wearer capability, optimized edge-to-edge clarity, and high transmission.

“Pocket binoculars just got serious!” says Rob Lancellotti, Public Relations Associate for SWAROVSKI OPTIK NORTH AMERICA. “The CL Pocket delivers big optic performance from a small, light, easily carried binocular that can be with you for any outdoor activity, as well as indoor sporting events or concerts.”

The CL Pocket features an ergonomic, rugged construction thanks to its aluminium housing, offering optimum operation and unique viewing comfort. Available in black, green or tan, the CL Companion binoculars come complete with a water repellent field bag and carrying strap.

SWAROVSKI OPTIK NORTH AMERICA Partners with Outdoor Afro Founder to Support Biggest Week in Birding Festival

 

Cranston, Rhode Island – SWAROVSKI OPTIK NORTH AMERICA, a subsidiary of the Austrian-based company, is excited to announce their partnership with Rue Mapp, founder of the social community, Outdoor Afro. As part of Outdoor Afro and SWAROVSKI OPTIKS partnership, Rue will visit and take part in the first weekend of the Biggest Week in Birding Festival.

This year, SWAROVSKI OPTIK NORTH AMERICA has partnered with Rue Mapp of Outdoor Afro to be at the first weekend of the Biggest Week in Birding Festival (May 3rd-5th), enjoying the warblers and representing SWAROVSKI OPTIK. Half the fun of the Biggest Week in Birding Festival in Ohio, is not just taking in the sights of the stunning warblers, but also meeting great people. Rue will be available to speak at the festival about all of her accomplishments, and attendees can learn how to join Outdoor Afro and support this ever growing community.

Rue developed Outdoor Afro, a social community that reconnects African-Americans with natural spaces and one another through recreational activities such as camping, hiking, biking, birding, fishing, gardening, skiing, and more! Rue was recently named a Hero in Backpacker’s Magazine, honored as part of the Root 100 of the top black achievers and influencers for 2012, and received the Josephine and Frank Dunaneck award for her humanitarian efforts.

“To me, birding has two qualities that make it an ideal pastime. The first is that you can go virtually anywhere in the world and see birds, and the farther you go from home, the more interesting the birds are. The second is that learning about birds gives you reason to learn more about the world that the bird lives in – types of trees they nest in, insects that they eat, habitats that they frequent. This leads you to learn the butterflies, dragonflies, plants, windflowers, etc…, that tie all these threads together. When you reach that point, you are never bored when you are walking in the woods,” said Clay Taylor, Naturalist Market Manager for SWAROVSKI OPTIK NORTH AMERICA.

Rue Mapp, founder of Outdoor Afro said, “Birding is such an easy way to engage more people with nature – with SWAROVSKI OPTIK’S support, I am empowered to be a bridge for more communities to experience the connection between birding and an increased awareness of the quality of life surrounding us.”
