But it's not just their size that makes the CL Companion Binoculars great. The image you get is excellent. You're going to see a wonderfully bright, sharp image both through the center and at the edges of the lenses. This great image comes from the phase corrected coatings on the optics and the spectacular roof prism.
Since you can carry these in your pocket, it's important that the binoculars are tough, cause they're likely to get banged around a bit. Well, Swarovski made the CL Companions to stand up to a lot of abuse. They feature full rubber armoring for shock absorption, and the nitrogen filled tubes helps make them dust and dirt proof.
We have two different models of the CL Companion Binoculars right now: the regular Swarovski CL Companion Binoculars, which feature 8X magnification, and the Swarovski CL Companion 10x30 Binoculars, which sport 10X magnification. Both styles come in green, black or sand color.
Regardless of the option you choose, you're going to get a fantastic pair of binoculars from Swarovksi that are high performing, tough and compact! Check them out right now!
I love checking out the various Streamlight flashlights we have available in our store. There are options for just about every possible activity, and each one has the awesome quality found in all Streamlight products!
While hunters, police officers and firefighters can all find something specially designed for them, I'm a more casual flashlight user. I don't run into a lot of burning buildings, but I do find myself fumbling around in the dark more often than I'd like, and I need a light close at hand that I can always find, which is why I love the Streamlight Clipmate. As the name implies, the Clipmate has a clip on the back which will attach to a wide variety of surfaces. I clip mine to my bed's headboard. My lamp is a bit out of reach, and when the power goes out it's nice to have a light nearby in the same place all the time so that I can find it. My Clipmate doesn't have to take up the minimal table space I have next to my bed, and I can always count on it to give me great light.
The Streamlight Clipmate Flashlight is also pretty versatile in its uses. Because of how lightweight it is (only 2.4 ounces), this tiny flashlight can clip to a baseball cap to act as a headlamp, and there's an included headband if you don't want to use a hat!
The LED light is visible up to a mile away, so it's pretty bright, and there are two color options available for the LEDs, white or green, so you can pick which is best for you. Not bad for a light small enough to fit in your pocket.
The Clipmate flashlight uses 3 AAA batteries, which I prefer to specialized lithium batteries because I always have a few AAAs laying around. But the battery type doesn't mean you'll have low battery life. The Clipmate will give you up to 40 hours of runtime!
I use my Streamlight Clipmate around the house for everyday purposes, but hunters love the camoflauge version, as it clips easily to their belt and gives them a great compact option when they're out hunting.
Finding a pair of binoculars that provide super high level image clarity while also being tough enough to stand up to the rigors of hunting has long been a issue for hunters. This combination is difficult to find because delicate glass tends to be clearer. Getting a tough pair of binoculars with good lenses has been pretty expensive, but Nikon has just upped their game while lowering their prices.
The Nikon Monarch 3 series of binoculars are truly something special. Currently available only in select stores (including OpticsPlanet, of course), they were designed for hunters trudging through the woods in search of the perfect game. Since water is everywhere and can ruin a pair of binoculars, the Monarch 3s are O-ring sealed and nitrogen purged, so they are totally waterproof.
But though they're waterproof on day one, the body needs to be tough enough to withstand punishment without letting in a leak. Well, the polycarbonate body on the Monarch 3s are crazy tough. The body was sculpted for durability and comfort, so they're tough, and you won't mind glassing for hours as they rest comfortably in your hand. The design also allows for long eye relief, which is a relief to users like me who wear eyeglasses. And if you want them pressed up tight to your eyes the flexible eyecups won't irritate.
But Nikon put in all these design features for one reason: to protect the outstanding optics. Nikon binoculars use premium glass, made from the highest quality optical sand, but the Monarch 3s have more than just great lenses. The coatings on the lenses allow for extremely high light transmission, so you get a really clear, bright image. And the lenses are fully multi-coated, so the image is clear regardless of what part of the lens you look through. The high-reflectivity silver allow prisms flawlessly magnify the image before it reaches your eye. Almost no light is lost while traveling through the Monarch 3 binoculars. And that clarity is what it's all about.
All these great features are found in both versions of the Monarch 3s we just added to our stores. The main difference between the Nikon Monarch 3 8X42 and the Nikon Monarch 3 10X42 is the magnification, which slightly alters the field of view and eye relief. Otherwise, they are two of the best pairs of binoculars available today!
Not a lot of stores are carrying the Monarch 3s from Nikon, so be sure to get yours from OpticsPlanet today!
The big struggle a lot of people have with their multi-tools is their compliance with TSA regulations. Many items that were once okay to bring on a plane are now banned, so what if you need to bring tools with you and you don't wish to check them?
Leatherman has come up with a solution. Since they're all about producing the best multitools and knives on the market, Leatherman looked really closely at TSA regulations and found exactly what is and what is not allowed on an airplane. The result of their efforts is the Leatherman PS Style. This multitool has been tested at over 300 airport security lines, and while some of the security staff needed to be shown that the tool is compliant with their rules, the PS Style has always gotten through security.
It wouldn't be a multitool with a number of different tools, so with the PS Style you'll have a spring-action needlenose pliers, a spring-action regular pliers, spring-action wire cutters, a pair of scissors, a nail file, tweezers, flat head and Phillips head screwdrivers, a carabiner and a bottle opener. That's a lot of tools in a small package, and you can have them all on an airplane! The carabiner makes it easy to attach to a backpack, keychain or belt buckle, so you won't need to worry about it once it's packed.
There are a lot of Leatherman Tools, but you have to be careful which one you try to bring onto a plane, but the PS Style is compliant and you shouldn't run into any problems.
We just recently found out that a Leatherman representative took his PS Style onto a plane and was able to not only get a picture of it on the plane, but he had the pilot holding it in the cockpit! A few minutes after takeoff a flight attendant asked to borrow the PS Style Multitool to fix the PA system. Pretty cool.
