Swarovski AFL Anti-Fog Lens

You’ve been out in the cold for hours, braving chilly winds and the familiar ache of impending muscle fatigue. Hunting is serious business; especially when frostbite nips at your toes. Now, imagine the disappointment of missing a sure shot because the scope lens fogged up. Such a minuscule detail, yet it can change the outcome of the entire day. This is where Swarovski Optik has your back with the newest release: Swarovski AFL anti-fog lens. This accessory product was made to prevent fogging of external lenses, even when temperatures drop well below zero.

Swarovski AFL anti-fog lens is a tiny, super lightweight device that heats up the eyepiece lens. Made from anodized aluminum and powered by a rechargeable battery, AFL is easy to handle. It can be clipped directly onto the scope eyepiece in a matter of seconds. Thanks to the integrated SLP eyepiece cover, it ensures extra protection from the elements. The set-up is completed by a simple ON/OFF button and LED indicator that shows battery level.

The fogging of the lens depends on many factors such as outside temperature, humidity, clothing, and the position of the shooter. But no matter the intensity of the problem, AFL will eliminate condensation completely in two minutes tops after turning it ON. Once it’s activated, AFL will keep the lens fog-free for the remainder of the hunt. If the ambient temperature rises above +10°C (50°F), the device will switch off automatically and save on battery life.

AFL is suitable for right- and left-handed users, RH and LH rifle models. The lefties only need to turn AFL upside-down, so controls are at the bottom and the clip-on won’t interfere with the rest of the gear.

As expected with premium brands, the product comes with many extras included in the packaging.
