Swarovski 85mm Objective Lens only
I recommend the 85mm for backpacking primarily because it’s about 2.2″ shorter than its larger 95mm brother and will fit in your pack better. It’s also 1/2 pound lighter than the 95mm. The 85mm provides 30X when paired with the BTX eyepiece which is about the perfect magnification for picking apart distant terrain from 1/2 mile to 2 miles out. The FOV isn’t so tight you feel like you’re missing out on the big picture, but it provides enough magnification to study the shadows and look for small details of animals trying to blend into the cover.
If you hunt out of your backpack a lot, this is probably the better objective choice for you. If you’re more into day hunting, accessing glassing points from a vehicle or short-hikes nearer the road, then the 95mm objective does give you a little more reach for glassing greater distnaces and it’s the standard by which everything else is judged.
