  7. Molly

    My binoculars arrived safely and I am thrilled! Perfect for backyard birding! And not too heavy for birding excursions…clarity is terrific, even for this bespectacled retired school mark! Can’t tell you how much these binoculars will enhance my enjoyment of a lifetime casual hobby. Thank you!!!

  8. Chris Smith

  9. Susan Hodges And Kirsten H.

    Excellent product! Lenses Allow a lot of light in and bring even tiny birds into sharp focus. Very pleased with these binoculars.

  10. Roy Harries (verified owner)

    What can I say to the reviews already said , Nothing it is all true , many thanks happy new year.

  11. Mr Ivan Gee (verified owner)

    After a mix up on delivery and a delayed response, the Avalon Optics Team, once they were alerted to our email, pulled out all the stops to rectify the error and sent out a second pair of binoculars with 48 hours !! We went from being disappointed to being very very impressed with this company. Mistakes happen, its what positive actions occur to solve the problem that counts and this company pulled out all the stops to get the 2nd pair to us. Thank you Avalon, we will recommend your site to anyone we know wanting to purchase binoculars. We have model : Avalon 10×42 PRO HD Binoculars, they really are so light to carry its easy to forget you have them, ideal when out walking for any length of time, the clarity they provide is excellent in such a compact pair of binoculars, we are very very happy with them.

  12. June (verified owner)

    Fabulous! Half the weight of my previous very expensive brand, and the same clarity. Easy to focus and cannot wait to test them further on an African safari.

  13. Alison Forrest (verified owner)

    My husband bought these binoculars for me. Specifically, to watch wildlife on our trips and walks. They are stylish, light and easy to carry. The clarity is amazing. The only thing I am not keen on is the neck strap. It’s a bit rough on the neck. However, I think these binoculars are good value for money and I would recommend . The service was seamless from ordering to delivery. I love my new binoculars .

  14. Kim Duggan

    Love these binoculars! Easy to use, lightweight and super sharp focusing. Great for birding and wildlife spotting.

  15. Sydney Gordon

    Love these binoculars. They are the clearest I have ever had.

  16. Marion L Massinger

    I absolutely love my new binoculars! They are light weight, and easy to use. They are perfect for bird watching !!! I’m Very happy with my purchase!

  17. Chris Newton (verified owner)

    Quick delivery, well packed . Wide strap, very comfortable and a good case. Lens caps attached and eye piece covers attach to strap, even better. But save the best till last. The optics are superb for the price, I am delighted with the clarity of the image in all light conditions. Thoroughly recommended, my sister is ordering a pair too.

  18. David Rough

    Binoculars arrived within a few days. Took them on my first trip last week and the 10×42 were perfect for my needs. The rubber protection caps are an excellent handy feature. Only complaint would be that the bag is just a tiny bit too tight. If it was just 5% larger then it would be the perfect fit.

  19. Don Smith (verified owner)

    Outstanding for the price. Accurately described and very competent in use (spectacle wearer). Unexpectedly good in low light conditions. A positive boon is the attached lens covers. A small but incredibly useful feature.

  20. Neil

    Superb for the price. Got me and Mrs a set and over the moon with them. Love the drop down lense protection. Very clear in dull light . Would definitely recommend.

  21. Andrew (verified owner)

    I had no idea what I was looking for in a pair of binoculars but given the fact that I was going bird watching I thought I should buy a pair. After reading a number of reviews about this product I decided they would suffice.
    I have used them over the last week and am absolutely amazed by the clarity when using them in different lights. Whilst out over the saltmarshes in Blakeney (Norfolk) my wife lent them to a couple and they said they would go home and buy a pair.
    A great product

  22. Nigel (verified owner)

    Very good quality for the price. Smooth in operation and razor sharp focus. Just what I needed. Thanks Avalon

  23. David Jones

    Second Test – England vs Aussies at Lords – clutching my new Avalon 10×42 Pro Platinum. I was amazed how much light these binoculars actually let in. The image was stunning. Still couldn’t follow Jofra Archers deliveries though… seriously – I couldn’t recommend the 10×42’s highly enough!


    Extremely good value, excellent optics. Particularly liked the exceptional quality of near focus and they have a nice appearance. Quite light and compact for travelling.

  25. William (verified owner)

    Quite pleased with my purchase and would recommend these , I was surprised that there was not the normal mounting point for a tripod and that an adaptor needed to be additionally purchased.

  26. Brian Hart (verified owner)

    Fantastic binoculars well worth the money my others were to heavy but these are just right for me and my wife to hold . Excellent viewing spectrum and very easy to use thanks for such a great product.

  27. Darren (verified owner)

    Great product at a reasonable price. Very clear view and easy to set up.

  28. Kit George (verified owner)

    Bought for my wife for nature watching. Excellent value, a lot lighter weight than most competitors and in brief time of ownership very well worth the investment

  29. GARY SUTCLIFFE (verified owner)

    Superb , Stylish , Sturdy . Sharp images at all distances, really pleased with this purchase.

  30. John Horncastle (verified owner)

    We purchased these binoculars for a holiday in Orkney & Shetland, specifically for wildlife watching (predominantly birds). They are fantastic. Light, great vision & a very good price.

  31. Alan Frew (verified owner)

    I have a pair of Vanguards which are very good and my first purchase of decent Binoculars. Bought the Avalons as a ‘cheaper’ second pair for when we have friends around and we want to look at the bird feeders etc. I have to say that I am very impressed with the quality of these binoculars and are as good as the Vanguards at a much better price point, i.e. the Vanguards were £213 in 2017 and the Avalons £139. My next pair will certainly be Avalons.

  32. Joanna Edwards (verified owner)

    Took these “Tiger spottting” in India – they were Great to find Cats and Birds and see the wildlife in amazing detail even in lower light. Easy to use and really liked the ease of lens cap on/off in those dusty conditions. Recommend

  33. Steve Mitchell (verified owner)

    I bought these specifically for my holiday on safari in Namibia. I did a lot of research on the internet beforehand and came to the conclusion that 10 magnification with 42 object lens was as big as I should go, though I was advised by various people that 8 magnification would be better because they would be lighter and easier to manage.
    I was relieved to find that 10×42 were excellent and were not at all too heavy. My wife and I used them extensively and I am delighted with the purchase.

  34. Kay

    Good delivery service. Early days yet but so far so good – tried them out at an RSPB wetlands reserve and am pleased with their performance. Bins are easy to use and adjust, image appears clear with good magnification; bins are lightweight and comfortable to wear. Purchased to take on a safari holiday for wildlife viewing; chose this size to accommodate low light early and late in the day, level of magnification and no fog feature – with considerations to weight, comfort and cost. I like the twist out eye cups, attached protective lens covers and wide, easily adjustable carrying strap.

  35. Graham Allen (verified owner)

    I read reviews which all seemed positive before I purchased and therefore was not disappointed when they arrived the day after ordering. Although I’ve never owned a pair of expensive professional binoculars, they seem pretty darned good to me and well put together; all in all, I like them. I can’t say anything negative, though being used to receiving a guarantee with most products, you don’t with these binoculars. If earlier reviews I read are anything to go by, there should be nothing to worry about and as far as being waterproof, I guess I will only find out if they end up in the swimming pool. I can say without a doubt that I concur with the majority of reviews.

  36. Pauline (verified owner)

    Great quality, really pleased with this product. The binoculars are lightweight so great for my walking holiday.

  37. Steve Hanwell (verified owner)

    Great birthday present for my wife today. She says they are marvellous to use.

  38. Alex P M

    Great Value for money. Used them a few times for birdwatching. Love them!

  39. Rose

    I ordered the platinum binoculars as a surprise gift for a relative who enjoys birdwatching. She was excited when she opened the package, as this is her first pair of binoculars.
    She tried them on immediately, and looked through them to get a better view of the eastern blue bird perched on the suet cage. I think she will enjoy them for many years! Thank you for providing a beautiful product.

  40. Bev P (verified owner)

    Great binoculars at a very reasonable price. Really good build quality, sturdy and easy to remove lens caps. Packaged very well and arrived promptly. Great for viewing Norwegian fjords from the sea.

  41. Mal Odam

    Very good. Seem well made.
    Great speedy delivery.
    Lighter and more convenient than my 30+ year old 7X50’s!

  42. Kevin Lawlor (verified owner)

    Really pleased, fantastic clarity and easy to use

  43. H Grindley (verified owner)

    Excellent product. I use them for bird watching. They are very comfortable to use. I thought I might find them a bit heavy to hold, but the weight is no problem at all. I’m very pleased with my purchase.

  44. Yoka

    Great best ever

  45. Christopher Maitland

    Light, compact and easy to focus, these binoculars represent excellent value.

  46. Mark Eiler

    I recently purchased 10×42 Pro HD Platinum Binoculars and couldn’t be happier with my purchase. They are solid, well performing, lightweight, and stylish. I can’t say enough about them, except if you are in the market for binoculars for hunting or bird watching these are well worth the money!

  47. Krystalla Ward

    They are great. Looked at the full super snow moon last night and saw so many details! Am looking forward to using them on holiday soon

  48. Pamela

    Good? No! EXCELLENT PRODUCT! Thank you! ?
    Si algún latino lee esto, créanme que el producto merece la pena! Es de excelente calidad!

  49. Stephen Walls

    Excellent i’m Really happy with these binoculars

  50. Stephen Smith (verified owner)

    I received my binoculars the day following my order. As it was dark when they arrived I had to leave using them properly till the following morning.

    They are brilliant. They are very easy to set up (I did use a youtube video as the enclosed instructions assume you know about binoculars). Having set them up which takes seconds I am over the moon with them. They are light, have a lovely wide neck strap, they let in lots of light and the focusing is lovely and smooth. I can now see many more things that were just not possible to see through my old pair. I can use them either with glasses, contact lenses or the naked eye – yes they are THAT good!

    The ONLY slight complaint is that the neck strap was supplied frayed so it can’t be tucked neatly into the retainer. I think it will look messy in the near future.

    These are pretty much perfect as far as I am concerned.

    Thank you Avalon.

  51. Asif Kamal (verified owner)

    Very good. Amazing viewing and great optics.

  52. Paula (verified owner)

    Love these binoculars

  53. Lucy Goodman (verified owner)

    These are a great weight; light enough to not strain your arms as you hold them up for a long time, but heavy enough to feel like excellent quality. The platinum colour is like ‘stone’ colour and my mum is thrilled to bits with them. They fold in for people with eyes quite close together, and are all fully adjustable and easy to focus. Very happy with the quality. The website was very useful in describing what the numbers mean and taking confusion out of the purchase. I knew I was buying exactly what my mum wanted. Long may they last.

  54. Elmarie Gebler

    A great Christmas gift! Light and easy to use

  55. Gary

    Great lightweight binoculars that are easy to carry everywhere you go. Easy and smooth focusing. Work well in low light both early morning and dusk. Highly recommended professional style binoculars at a very reasonable price .

  56. Paul Egan

    Bought these as a gift as had already bought a pair a couple of years ago and so knew of the great quality and value. I managed to break my pair but they were replaced free of charge within days.Wonderful product”

  57. Ron pichler

    Binoculars work awesome, love them!

  58. Christopher Peacher (verified owner)

    I have only used them a couple of times, but hey are really easy to focus and are light for the size, I will be using them at the coast soon and this will let me know how good they are.

  59. Rosemary

    These were a birthday present for my adult daughter who loves spending time in the bush observing wildlife. She tried them immediately and was thrilled with the clarity & ease of use. I was really impressed with the service, tracking the parcel and speedy delivery.

  60. Brian (verified owner)

    Bought as a present for my wife and am extremely impressed with them, my wife thinks they are the best thing ever…..
    Excellent quality and they actually feel well made also, very comfortable and easy to use.
    I may now use these as an excuse to get myself a pair now, or even the more expensive ones….

  61. Laurie (verified owner)

    Spot on – exactly what I was after for a cruise holiday.

  62. Rod Weston

    I just purchased these and they are perfect for what I need. My friends were impressed with the clarity.


    These binoculars are fine, and as good as I expected. The light weight and compact size make them more convenient than my old-type 8×30 binoculars. It is great that I can use them with my glasses and I am very satisfied with them.

  64. Suzanne Serfontein (verified owner)

    I bought the Bins for my partner as we are both bird watchers. He thinks they are amazing – as he wears glasses he loves the wind-out eyepiece and the clarity is outstanding.

  65. Ken Davis

    I purchased these binoculars as a gift for my wife. When she opened the package she immediately commenred on how nice these binoculars look and feel. She really enjoys using them for bird watching.

    She tried to use the belt loop provided on the case, but the unit is a little too big and heavy for comfort on the belt. She uses the provided neck strap instead and has no troubles with that.

    All in all, a really good product.

  66. wayne parr

    A great pair of binos….I took them to work on two days..Abit of fine adjustment and I was away..Used them all day without any problems and great to use with glasses on..Nice and light and the platinum colour makes a nice change..I will be putting my bino harness on them and heading into the hills…Wayne..

  67. Leonard (Len) Triplett

    Good value, good performance, well worth the price.

  68. Laureen

    I bought these for my trip to Southern Africa. Carried them to 5 countries in 30 days. Perfect size and big big lens to watch animals and birds on safari. I couldn’t be more pleased.

  69. Rob Stansberry

    Love them. Very clear and quite sturdy. I need to see clearly at 100 yards. These glasses far exceed that need and expectation.

  70. Bryan Balmer

    very clear optics and great in low light. Very pleased with them

  71. Doug

    Very pleased. Great clarity, lightweight.

  72. Lex Dekoning

    Amazing clarity!! I bought for my wife’s birthday and we both love them.
    Awesome binos.

  73. Mike Edelstein

    Excellent and well worth the price. This company is great!

  74. Judy Peterson

    These binoculars are just what we needed. They let in lots of light, and separately adjust for each eye, have the option of using with or without glasses. The covers have straps to prevent loss.

  75. Terry Nadeau

    I just purchased the Avalon 10×42. We live right on the Bohemia river and the clarity is dynamite. We use it to get a nice close up of a pair of eagles. You can see all the way across the river onto the other bank which we could not do with our other binoculars. The size and weight make them easy to use. I would certainly recommend this product. Lastly, the product was delivered in a timely fashion with tracking information.

  76. Steve Bell

    Great service, very prompt delivery. They appear to be exactly what I expected so far – haven’t fully given them a workout but look like they will definitely do the job. Value for money bino’s.

  77. Sharon Mess (verified owner)

    I purchased these binoculars for my husband’s Christmas present. He is very happy with them and will find them useful when we go for leisurely walks and serious hill walking. Excellent service from Avalon Optics.

  78. Nic

    Excellent all round! Top shelf.

  79. Geri Doyle

    Really happy with my new binoculars – they work really well and are nice and clear. My husband commented in how light they were and I love that they are so compact and fit into my little bag that I use for birdwatching.

  80. Bobby

    Nice bins… great value…

  81. Andrew

    top notch, quality glass and for the price cant beat it overall quality feel to them would recommend them to anyone, in fact my dad just purchased a pair after using mine on a recent hunt

  82. Dr Katie Weir

    Delivered quick and great value for money. Easy to focus quickly, so lightweight and the neoprene strap means they don’t slip off your shoulder when walking. The image they deliver is so sharp even in low light and at close range. Kakadu here I come!

    Pleased with case and strap.Excellent value for what you get compared to other brands.Thanks

  88. Rod Doller (verified owner)

    Toyed with buying several different makes of binoculars, including well known camera manufacturers, before seeing these on a retailers website. As I was a bit apprehensive of buying something like binoculars untried l spent time trying to find out more information/reviews etc. This site had only 2 reviews but spec was good and prices were cheaper.
    Ordered and delivered by courier within a few days l feel I made a wise choice.
    Binoculars feel really well made, focusing is very smooth and performance is extremely good even in relatively poor light, far better than the small 8×25 zoom pair I have been using for the last 10 years, goodness knows what I have missed in that time. I haven’t taken these out yet and have only been watching the birds in the trees at the bottom of the garden but thought I would get this review published before Christmas in case people are considering buying for somebody as a present. I am glad I took a chance as these are well up to the standard of binoculars that are more than twice the price.

  89. Christine

    Loved the ease to focus on the birds both near and far. The light weight is also great.

  90. Margaret

    I purchased these last month to take with us on an African Safari. They were just perfect. My husband has larger more expensive Nikon binoculars which he brought along and my Avalon 10×42 were just as good. These binoculars are light and easy to carry. I didn’t miss a single running animal with them and they certainly made my safari experience better. They worked great early mornings too when there was hardly any light. I used them a-lot with sunglasses and no problem there either. Very recommended.
