As an big game hunter, outfitter/guide for 20 years who spends countless hours out in the field using extremely expensive, high end optics, camera, and video equipment it is absolutely essential that I keep my optical gear free of dust, dirt, smudges, so that I can not only spot the big game trophy I’m searching for but protect them from damage.

When you backpack hunting as I do its amazing how quickly the lens on your optics become dirty. Clean them with a hankerchief or shirt and I can guarantee that this abrasive material, combined with fine dust particles will damage your lens. I can’t haul big cans of compressed air and bottles of cleaning solution out on the mountain with me so I need something that is light, takes up little room, and will clean my optics efficiently. This is where Field Optic’s Professional Optic Cleaning Kit (POCK) comes in. So small that I can attach it to my Swarovski Binoculars I have a lens brush, cotton swab, cleaning solution and microfiber lens cloth handily available to keep all of my optics clean.

Remember, that when you are cleaning your optics you want to tip the lens downward so that when you brush any debris will fall away from you lens. I also like to carry a very rubber air blower to use with this kit.

With a price of only $9.95 this inexpensive optics cleaning device should be on everyone’s gear list. Manufactured by Field Optics Research out of Orem, Utah, this company only designs some incredible Eyeshields for binoculars that I have used for years.

What They Could Do Better:

The POCK is so simple for what it is designed to do that it is incredible. The only suggestion I have for Field Optic’s Research is to find a way to include a very small rubber air blower in the kit also! Great job guys.
