"The EL was the best binocular in the world. It's still one of the best, but not the best anymore." - Swarovski Optik Executive

The NL Pure from Swarovski Optik is not a replacement for the EL. What it is, however, is spectacular. With the three most popular magnifications on the market represented in a reimagined 42 mm format (including a 12x42), the NL is the most comfortable hand-holding binocular we've ever seen.

Strap the NL Pure to a tripod and take full advantage of Swarovski's iconic glass, Swarovision coating system, and a massive 71˚ field of view (even at 12x), and refuse to let anything on the mountain escape. The EL still has its place, but the NL Pure has literally created a brand-new category for binocular performance.

You can't kill a legend, but you can ask it to scoot over.

Great product!

I’m loving these binoculars. I added the forehead brace/rest and the tripod hub. Both are great additions as well. Service and delivery was fast, accurate and the product came very well packaged.

Swarovski NL Pure 12x42 Military Program

I purchased the binoculars through Outdoorsmans Military program. They offered me a great price and quoted me 4-6 week lead time. A week and a half after I placed my order I got a shipping notification and they were delivered the next day. I am beyond impressed with these binoculars and Outdoorsmans customer service. These NL's are are amazing glass and I am really glad I got the 12x42 instead of the 10's. There is a big difference between these and my Zeiss Conquest HD 10x42 and that is saying a lot as I still think the Zeiss are good glass. Overall I am very pleased with the NL's and Outdoorsmans. For anyone wondering about the forehead rest it does help.

Swarovski NL Pure 12x42

The clarity, field of view, and size of these put them a step above any other optics I have owned. I thought how can glass get any better when I first saw the NLs especially after using the new generation 15s, the Els, Leica Geovids, as well as Leica Ultravids. It only took once looking through these while hunting mule deer to know that I would have to purchase a pair. Since I received the NLs they have not disappointed me, they are absolutely awesome glass. Outdoorsman’s customer service is great, I will continue doing business with them for all of my future optic needs.

Swarovski NL Pure

I absolutely love these 12x42’s. I have owned the 15x56 first generation Swarovski and Vortex, but there is no comparison to these.
Thank you Outdoorsman’s for all your help and a special thanks to Kody for being so helpful.
