I had your complaint until I found that I could also rotate (spin) the twisted straps on my CL Companion 8x30 B and untangle the twist that way. It is very easy to do and faster than...

I thought it was a good idea but I didn't know source of the idea and didn't really care. I don't know if it was copyrighted either.

I notice that they don't try to stuff a wide FOV in them. It has 7.5º and it has 18mm eye relief. It is probably easy to use.

It is my opinion, FWIW, that the current Swarovski CL Companion 8/10x30 B was meant to be an upgrade of the old Swarovski SLC Neu 8x30 WB which I believe was discontinued in 2010.

It is lighter in...

When I am looking through any binocular I am conscious of its actual field of view and what I see inside it. I never give any thought about it's "apparent" field of view.
