Nothing is as powerful as a compelling vision — whether it's a glimpse of the future of your industry or a better look at the views during a weekend hike. EL binoculars, from Swarovski Optik KG, have what you need to improve the view out your office window or from a mountaintop. Designed primarily for birding, EL has an easy-to-grasp wraparound grip and ergonomic thumb molds. These magnesium-made binoculars are waterproof to a depth of 13 feet, airtight, and dust-proof.
The price of seeing into the great beyond? An impressive $1,349. For your viewing pleasure, visit Swarovski on the Web (www.swarovskioptik.com).
