Included with this product

Kuiu XL Binocular Harness, wind puffer, micro-fiber cleaning cloth spud, lens pen, tripod stud, and direct mount tripod adapter for Arca Swiss/1.5″ dovetail. If using your own tripod you must supply a compatible tripod quick release plate with a 1/4″-20 screw. 


The 15×56 SLC Binocular from Swarovski combines extra-low dispersion (HD) glass elements and a range of proprietary optical coatings with a weather-resistant magnesium-alloy housing to create a multi-purpose set of glasses that delivers impressive image quality and durability. This configuration of the SLC displays an immersive 62° apparent viewing angle; a long 16mm eye relief and multi-position twist-up eyecups enable a comfortable viewing distance for almost any observer.

Swarovski uses an Abbe-Koenig prism design for the 56mm SLC model, which maintains a streamlined form factor without sacrificing image quality. The prisms are phase corrected to enhance sharpness and reduce chromatic aberration. And each of the fluorite-containing HD glass elements is finished with multiple layers of SWAROTOP anti-reflective lens coating. Resulting images transmitted by the SLC optical path are rich with detail and saturated with lifelike color.

In addition to its high-transmission optical system, Swarovski also equips the SLC binocular with a range of features that improve the handling experience of the observer. The geared focus system offers quick and precise focusing with the same focus wheel, permitting the observer to focus from infinity down to 13 ft in only two rotations. Covering the magnesium-alloy housing are two distinct types of rubber armoring, each providing impact protection and tactile response where they are needed most.

Complementing the HD optics and improved ergonomics of the SLC series binoculars is a nitrogen-filled housing that is airtight to a depth of 13 ft. Swarovski finishes the exposed lens surfaces with their SWARODUR scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coating, as well as SWAROCLEAN non-stick lens coating, which repels moisture and prevents residue from adhering to the exposed glass. Its premium optics and user-friendly performance make the SLC binocular a reliable optic for intermediate- to long-range glassing tasks.

    I rented these for a 2-day scouting trip in Southern California. Used on a Slik 624CF tripod with a Sirui VA-5 head. Both days in the field were overcast with relatively “low light” making for a good test run. I alternated between these and my mid-grade 18×56 for comparison. This was my first experience using top tier glass and the difference was notable. I don’t speak optics but the SLCs are just crisper and clearer – one of those things you don’t realize you are missing until you try it. These will definitely be the next upgrade on the gear list as soon as the budget permits.

Swarovski’s 15×56 SLC is a staple in the kits of the West’s most prolific mule deer guides. Of all the optics we rent, I’ve spent more time and found more trophy animals behind my 15’s than anything else. Once you mount them on a tripod, you’ll be amazed how effectively you can dissect huge country, picking up an antler tine or an ear flicker across the canyon and easily identifying game a couple miles out. When you’re running these at first light with the sunrise at your back you’ll feel like nothing can escape your gaze. You’ll still want a spotting scope to judge fine details at long range, but I spend 95% of my time glassing with these. The only glass I’ve found more effective in big, open country is a Swarovski BTX, but I still spend plenty of locating animals with my 15’s before mounting out the big glass.

We’ll send these with a tripod adapter and of course with a Kuiu bino harness that will make them comfortable to carry all day. We have a broad selection of lightweight tripods we can send out as well. 

A couple of our 15×56’s have some miles on them and will be available as keeper items. Let us know if you’re interested in renting a keeper and we can send you one and credit up to 7-days of your rental toward their purchase if you fall in love with them. 

If you’re hunting open country mule deer, coues deer, sheep, or open country elk, you need to add 15’s to your gear list. You can thank me later.
