  1. Kay Murphy (verified owner)

    Excellent Bins. Quick delivery. Pleased with performance, lightness and style. Crystal clear.
    But still on the look out for the shy Bitten!!

  2. Robert Barnes (verified owner)

    Awesome.Wife loves them and the colour.Great for birdwatching

  3. Jeremy Beckett (verified owner)

    I bought a pair as a birthday present for my son’s birdwatching – my wife liked them so much I had to buy her a pair for her birthday as well! At least we won’t have to share mine now.

  4. Phil Gager (verified owner)

    Magnificent! even better than expected.

  5. Joe Dostal (verified owner)

    Very impressed. In addition to the great clarity and quality, very easy to use. Unfortunately, I think my wife has also taken a shine to them.

  6. Joan Blanchard

    Love them, except I find the strap material very abrasive and so will be putting a soft cuff over it to prevent the chafing on my neck which was very uncomfortable when I wore them

  7. Geoffrey Searancke (verified owner)

    Excellent quality just what I was expecting

  8. Janet Payne (verified owner)

    I am really pleased with this birthday gift from my husband. They have replaced some really heavy traditional ones binoculars . The quality is great for the size and weight with clear focus and magnification particularly for bird watching. I would recommend these.

  9. KEVIN WOODCOCK

    I’ve been contemplating buying some new binoculars for months now, I bought a pair several years ago to take to the Kruger Park and was very disappointed with the quality so was nervous about making another bad purchase. I considered just spending proper money and buying Nikon and came across Avalon which truthfully I’d never heard of before. I shouldn’t have worried, when they arrived within 48 hours of ordering (there was a small part of me that even wondered as I hadn’t heard of them before it may even be a scam!) I am absolutely delighted with them, they are everything and more they say they are, the clarity, magnification and brightness are fantastic, they look amazing and seem of very good quality, I am so happy I was brave enough to buy them and not the Nikon equivalent, I’ll be buying my wife a pair for when we return to the Okavango in a couple of years, travel permitting. I would 100% recommend you buy if you’re considering them.

  10. Jennifer Nutkins (verified owner)

    These were a Birthday present from my husband, (Avalon 10×42 PRO HD Binoculars (PLATINUM) they are brilliant really enjoying them, very impressed, we live on the West Coast of Cumbria very close to the Lakes, not only are they excellent for bird watching (I am only a novice) but also wonderful for the magnificent scenery. My husband wears glasses, but he has had no problem using them.

  11. Peter (verified owner)

    My home overlooks the Straits of Dover and I bought my binoculars specifically for spotting the many ships passing by for which purpose they have proved admirable.

  12. William M

    These were bought for me as a birthday present by my brother, who painstakingly researched the subject of binoculars for my first pair. While I have no expert insight to offer, and cannot say how well these compare to alternatives, I can confirm at least that they provide a marvellous clarity of image, with a good size lens. Nice and light, well-designed, and certainly look the part, for what it’s worth. It’s very likely that any recipient of these as a gift will be delighted.

  13. Jon Ruddock (verified owner)

    First proper pair. The clarity of image is excellent. One of us wears glasses, and we can pass them between us with no problems at all. Highly recommended!

  14. RACHEL (verified owner)

    This was my first pair of binoculars. I’ve done research and found this brand. I’m new to bird watching but I have found a huge love for it, helps me relax and just gives me general pleasure in seeing them. I have a long garden so I felt the need for binoculars. The first thing was the colour that attracted me, having never brought any before I went by reviews and I’m so glad I did. They are fantastic. I love them. I will definitely buy again when the time comes. I would reccomend very highly.

  15. Paul Alexander Neaber (verified owner)

    Great price, delivered quickly, cannot fault them, wish the case was a little better, bought the lighter colour which look class.

  16. W. Goodall (verified owner)

    I was surprised by just how good the optics are. I have enjoyed using these over the last three weeks for hill walking and bird spotting. There is some reassuring weight to them while not feeling at all heavy. Adjustments work as they should and the mechanisms feel smooth and solid. I will buy a better case but happy to do that given the quality of the glasses

  17. William Crofts

    Excellent buy, binoculars light weight and appear to be of really good manufacture. Clarity is very good.
    Delivery was brilliant.

  18. Priscilla (verified owner)

    Very happy with the binoculars, lightweight and amazing clarity. I took a chance buying on -line and very glad I did. Quick delivery.

  19. Audrey Grieve (verified owner)

    Very good binoculars, efficient service

  20. Robert Harvie (verified owner)

    Excellent. Bought these along with the 8 x32. Both are great value for money. Bright sharp images. Always avoided 8 x magnification which has been a mistake. I would recommend both binoculars for their quality. I was surprised how good they were for the price.

  21. Mike foster (verified owner)

    Great binoculars sturdy really well made definitely recommend

  22. Dr Peter Mansi (verified owner)

    Our second set of these binoculars and the clarity is extremely good.

  23. Sue (verified owner)

    Quality magnification at a very reasonable price and not heavy to carry

  24. Tony Nye (verified owner)

    Excellent binoculars which arrived very quickly. Only negative is the strap which could have been better quality but overall very pleased

  25. Nick Leonard (verified owner)

    Excellent binoculars – ideal for nature watching. Arrived very quickly as promised. Great service.

  26. Christopher Lane (verified owner)

    They are light, bright, robust and easy to adjust. A great step up from my previous pair.

  27. AnneP (verified owner)

    Very pleased with my new Avalon 10×42 binoculars — excellent quality and magnification. So glad lens caps are attached so that i can’t mislay them and that they don’t get in the way at all when using the binoculars. Getting such enjoyment from being a novice birdwatcher. Delivery was speedy and they were well packed. I think it was money well spent.

  28. stephen (verified owner)

    Excellent. Fast delivery. Sharp, bright image. Can use wearing glasses. Not too heavy.

  29. Alan Down (verified owner)

    Light and easy to handle, just the job for a long walk birding. The packaging they arrived in was not great as came rattling around inside a very large box with no spacefill, fortunately no obvious damage.

  30. Karen Byrom (verified owner)

    Lovely and light for carrying, and great magnification. I’m very pleased with this purchase.

  31. Carol Biggs (verified owner)

    The light coming in to the perspective is excellent- brings everything into clear view and it is easy to focus on the exact distance required. I’ve just replaced a pair that I think were Avalon from over thirty years ago- only reason I replaced those was because I dropped and chipped one of the lenses- my new pair is even better so hopefully I’ll be using these for at least the next thirty years.

  32. Linda gee (verified owner)

    These are amazing for the price so clear to look through

  33. Mr Z Golebiewski (verified owner)

    Just purchased these for my wife who has finally took an interest in bird watching when we are out walking.Excellent and very pleased with these binoculars for the price we payed for them.Would certainly recommend these and we are very satisfied with the results.Don’t be put off by the low price.

  34. Elizabeth Cruickshank

    The binoculars were for my Daughter in Law’s 50th Birthday. She was absolutely delighted with them. With husband they do a lot of walking & caravaning so will be used all the time. Thank you for the quick & professional service & will definitely recommend Avalon to anyone buying binoculars. Thank you again

  35. John Small (verified owner)

    As a photographer I like to use a good pair of binoculars before taking my photograph and to keep an eye on my subject. I actually bought two pairs and they are excellent the quality is excellent, lightweight and great in low light. They arrived very quickly well packed and in a presentation box. Well done Avalon they are the best binoculars I’ve ever bought. Highly recommended.

  36. Debbie Vernon (verified owner)

    I bought the binoculars for my husbands birthday (17th March) and he is delighted with them!

  37. Jonathan Haines (verified owner)

    Fantastic in every way. Why did we struggle with our old binoculars for so long? I definitely recommend these binoculars for wildlife spotting.

  38. Claire (verified owner)

    I love my Avalons. Well worth the money, perfect binoculars and excellent delivery. They’ve sparked a bird watching interest which is getting me through
    lockdown, loved your video and not disappointed, I’m taking them everywhere but I might not get to the Amazon! Don’t hesitate to buy and I’m very particular.

  39. Farida (verified owner)

    My friend suggested I buy a pair so did a bit of research. Read the reviews and thought these were perfect. I’m so pleased with my purchase as a novice bird watcher…..when I first used them I couldn’t believe how clear they are, they pick up on amazing details. Love them they will now come on all my lockdown walks with me well worth the expense they feel very robust too!! 😁

  40. Tony O’Neill (verified owner)

    Extremely good value, extremely good binoculars. Bought for bird watching, they are ideal at 10 x 42. Very pleased with this purchase

  41. Sue (verified owner)

    These are my first pair of binoculars & I couldn’t be happier. It took a bit of practice to focus but once I knew how to use them I was thrilled. They are lightweight & I will be taking them out bird watching once lockdown is over.

  42. Neil Barker (verified owner)

    Excellent Binoculars. Mine are 10×42 and the ease of use, comfort and attention to detail is incredible for the price.
    Little things like the lens cap attach point to the base of each lens and the eye piece cover that clips to the strap. First class.
    We have another pair of 10×42 from another maker and the Avalon’s seem to have greater magnification. They are certainly better suited to my eyes, so much easier to achieve ‘one image’ maybe being roof as opposed to Porro prisms helps.
    Being much lighter than our other pair makes them much better for taking out on long walks and trips.
    The only minus is that it would have been great to have had a strap for the case. The belt loop is not very practical out on the Western isles when wearing a big coat when eagle spotting.
    Thank you.

  43. James Green (verified owner)

    First pair of binoculars in many years, take them with me now everywhere I go. Very happy with my Avalon binoculars, and had comments from many walkers, considering the low light currently, the optics are excellent… I wear reading glasses, but don’t need them with the bins… thank you.

  44. David Edney (verified owner)

    Really great binoculars. Have used them to watch the birds on the feeders in my garden and also on the beach. Fantastic clarity providing me with great views of black caps and woodpeckers in the garden and oyster catchers on the shoreline. Would thoroughly recommend. The company provides really good customer service too.

  45. Tom (verified owner)

    Absolutely superb! we counted 25 birds in the first hour of use!

  46. Les Wilson (verified owner)

    Excellent value for money, by far the best I have ever purchased.

  47. Chris Swaby (verified owner)

    Taken my new Avalons out twice now, unfortunately there aren’t any birds about here, but these bins feel great, sturdy with clear/ bright viewing. I had a pair of 12×50’s before and these feel better quality and being more compact are easier to hold steady.

  48. Tony Tudor (verified owner)

    Very pleased with the binoculars, wife, son and me all using them for birds in the garden but hoping to be able to enjoy them further afield in due course. Also delighted with the prompt delivery.

  49. Clive (verified owner)

    The binoculars are light, but have a good solid feel. Optically very good and comfortable to use. I haven’t yet tried them under poor light conditions but all good so far. Hoping post COVID to take them on holiday and give them a real work out.

  50. Dave (verified owner)

    Very nice binoculars, perfect balance between magnification and weight, def recommend, pity made in china as is everything seems

  51. Hilda (verified owner)

    These were bought as a gift for a birthday present which has not taken place yet. Very impressed with delivery service and the item looks great, very pleased so far but cannot comment on their performance at present.

  52. Roger Cairns (verified owner)

    Exactly as described and excellent quality optics. Well designed with a robust case and easy to carry.
    I have no hesitation in recommending them.

  53. Peter (verified owner)

    I purchased these for my wife for christmass and she is delighted.
    Lots of praise for them and delight at the lightness of weight yet so strong and the several thoughtfal additions re lens caps etc.
    I doubt I will be allowed to borrow these in any circumstances

  54. Charlie Tunnadine (verified owner)

    Perfect for my needs of sport and casual birding. Much better optical quality than I’m used to. Nice and light, really pretty.
    Early days, but so far so good

  55. Tony Norman (verified owner)

    These are exceptionally good binoculars for the price. I live and work in aviation and I needed a pair to offer a decent magnification, acceptable field of view, good light and, above all, lightweight. The Avalon 10×42 PRO HD Binoculars tick all these boxes and offer a build quality second to none. They look good too! The image quality is superb with virtually no perceptible distortion (bending of vertical lines). They are good to carry and good to hold. Love them!

  56. Murray Smith (verified owner)

    Delighted with Avalon Platinum Binoculars. arrived day after ordering. Purchased 2 weeks ago. Excellent clarity, light and magnification for my bird watching needs. Really like weight and the white colour helps me identify from my other binoculars. Really good value against any others I have bought and would highly recommend to anyone. A first class product. Well done Avalon.

  57. Saratha Jayne and Steven Eugene Reeves & Sonny the Dog (verified owner)

    What a beautiful pair of light weight super clear binoculars, I’m a casual bird watcher and have made do with a £40 of binoculars for the last 10 years, did the job but these are so nice very light look really good in white a bit more feminine, hubby still likes them, WWT review recommended and all the great reviews made me treat my self, and I’m glad I did they are quite compact compared to old ones very comfortable and look and function as I expected after reading the fab reviews worth the price and you could pay a lot more for ones with no difference in quality, what I really like is the adjustability and no need for my glasses for both of us I can’t see distance hubby can’t see close up , I like stylish things but they have to be practical as well and I love white I know the normal folk will think I’m a bit potty but white binoculars on muddy walks , but they will be good in the snow, if you need an upgrade and budget under 250 these are really worth the money I saw no benefit in paying double for a similar set these are just perfect me hubby and sonny the Weimaraner will enjoy plenty of long walks with my new Avalon Binos xx 💋

  58. Richard Shelton (verified owner)

    Received these Avalon 10×42 Pro HD (Platinum) binoculars last week. These are brilliant viewing landscapes and wildlife. They were a bit limited looking at planets (Saturn and Jupiter) a couple of nights ago.
    This is a product of real quality and I’m very, very pleased and satisfied with this purchase.

  59. Derek Winterburn (verified owner)

    Superb made a old man very happy it’s wonderful what i can see now

  60. P clague

    I got mlne today ,used them in my back garden they are so bright and clear the last binoculars I bought were a lot more expensive but these new ones are a lot clearer so up to now very happy with them

  61. Gabriel Chambers (verified owner)

    Very powerful for the size pleased with purchase
    Excited to use these for many years

  62. Laurence Browne (verified owner)

    I was delighted with the delivery service, packaging, and marketing of the Avalon Binoculars I recently purchased. I chose the white finish and I , like that a lot but I do hope it stands the test of time and does not yellow with age.
    Unfortunately, I have had a very limited chance to really put them to the test of their optical performance. I hope to correct that on an upcoming holiday on the Devon Coast.
    The only criticism I have is that the case for the binoculars has no carry strap and I have nearly lost the case on the two occasions I have used the Binoculars. On a quality product like this why save a few pennies by not having a strap on the case?

  63. Leonard Holder (verified owner)

    Delivery was prompt and very satisfied with the binoculars. Thank you.

  64. Vanetta Joffe (verified owner)

    All reviews have said everything. I endorse the statements unreservedly.

  65. Terry Harrison, (verified owner)

    I have been an avid bird watcher for over 70 years. My wife too shares the same joy. One of the considerations on our purchase was the flexibility in that my wife wears glasses at all times. Not only do these binoculars produce amazing images they are so flexible to allow my wife enjoy the same images. Excellent purchase.

  66. Jords (verified owner)

    Excellent performance, exactly what I need for taking with me on walks. Well worth the investment.

  67. Jeff (verified owner)

    Perfect for my requirements, ideal mid range viewing. Robustly made, good looking product. Good with or without glasses. Lens covers are connected to the binoculars so you don’t lose them. Nice case, would have liked a small pocket for the lens cleaner, but that is being a bit picky.

  68. Michael Dobbinson (verified owner)

    Very pleased with my new Avalon 10×42 Binoculars, easy online ordering process on secure website, delivered well packaged within two days, reasonably light weight, clear and sharp images, simple to adjust for quick focusing, eye caps fit securely, neck strap fiddly to fit but secure and comfortable, I’ve found these Binoculars to be excellent for all purpose use, very good quality and value for money.

  69. Mark Allsop (verified owner)

    I’m no technical expert but these binoculars seem excellent to me. They are reasonably light, easy to focus and give a bright and sharp image with no distortion I’ve noticed. I find them easiest to use without glasses but could use them with my specs on if necessary. I’m happy with them so far at least.

  70. Mike Renahan (verified owner)

    Excellent binoculars. Easy to handle, clear with tremendous magnification. Love them!

  71. Peter Hardie (verified owner)

    Well what can I say? I was cautious because of the price (very cheap compared to the so called best).

    Absolutely thrilled. So beautiful to see in real time and as a novice the seem wonderful to use. Cant wait to get out there and see mother nature at work, thankyou so much Avalon
    Wel done all the team for making me a happy guy.
    Peter .

  72. Gary (verified owner)

    I purchased these from a position as an amateur after much online research. I am very pleased indeed with the purchase it is nice to see the specifications and product boasts are true and not just hyperbole as with so many others. In addition they have a quality feel, would definitely recommend.

  73. W. H. (verified owner)

    Wear Specs, this is the binoculars for you, good on short and long range.Thank you to Avalonoptics customer care team for recomending this range.

  74. Jeremy Beckett (verified owner)

    Having explored various options and reviews, I bought these for my son as a birthday present because he has just taken to bird watching, but is also involved in many other outdoor activities (long distance walking, wild water swimming! rain forest treks etc.) and wanted a pair that were lightweight (point scored), very clear view (2nd point scored), good magnification (point 3) worked well with his spectacles (4th point) and were a reasonable price (point 5 for Dad!). As you can see these scored on every point and I nearly gave him my more expensive pair from another brand and kept these for myself!

  75. Philip Knight (verified owner)

    These are light, reasonably small, well designed binoculars that I find excellent to take on walks for general use and wildlife watching. They seem to me to be excellent value for the price.

  76. Irene Smith (verified owner)

    I’ve had lots of binoculars for bird watching and safaris and these are the best I’ve ever bought and well worth the money. They have thought of everything, from the neck strap to the lens holders so they don’t get lost or left behind. I sometimes think reviews are made up but this one isnt.

  77. Lachie (verified owner)

    Excellent clarity & quality. Bought for my wife’s birthday to replace small compacts. She is delighted and happy with comfortable neck strap. Will have to buy one for myself now.

  78. Debra Parsons

    Wow – an amazing pair of binoculars that are so easy to pick up and focus on birds close and in the distance. In addition, they are lightweight. I can even pass them to my husband and he can focus without moving the angle/focus too much! They have certainly improved our birdwatching 100% . The platinum is also a very nice change and they can easily be seen in my backpack. So pleased I picked these – can’t recommend them enough.

  79. Kelvin Musgrave (verified owner)

    Crystal clear, light weight and quality is amazing . Cant speak highly enough about these very pleased with my perchase, highly recommended

  80. Martin Pearse (verified owner)

    Very good value. My wife and I shared a pair of other binoculars, and this meant I always missed out time wise having to rearrange the vision when passed to me… now I have my own ! Or maybe not…

  81. Geoff Scotland (verified owner)

    The binoculars arrived 2 days after I ordered them and are exactly what I wanted. The only down side is the Velcro fastening on the carry case was only half stitched on and I had to glue it on . The shoulder strap fell off when I was out using them for the first time today and this meant I had to carry them in my hand all day : so a little disappointed . I would gladly have paid extra for a better quality case and shoulder strap

  82. Marie Christine Purdy (verified owner)

    Your excellent website described exactly the type of binoculars best for my needs and confirmed precisely the advice provided by a lifetime birdwatcher. So the journey began there. When I received them, I was delighted with the ease of making any necessary adjustments and the lightness of weight. Thank you for this ideal present from me to me in this unending period of lockdown—and the marvellous bird life it makes possible! Christine P.

  83. Paul Steven Evans (verified owner)

    I went and sat by the river. Was watching some grey and pied wagtails feeding their young on the pebbles. What a delight to view this up close with my new Avalon Binoculars. There were also swifts and swallows and a Sand Martin colony. Fab

  84. Kevin Steele (verified owner)

    Great binoculars, so good we ordered a second pair to stop the arguments.
    We did have a problem with one of the binoculars but this was rectified as soon as we contacted customer care and within a couple of days.
    Would recommend.

  85. Peter Gladman (verified owner)

    What a brilliant product. Bought for my wife (Who wears glasses). She found them to be extremely comfortable to hold and adjust. Purchased with the Avalon harness, it has proven so comfortable she says she would not know she was wearing it. Leaving her hands free and no strain on her neck.

  86. Richard (verified owner)

    Very pleased with this product which delivers very sharp images over a good range. Light-weight and comfortable to hold, the design is both contemporary and practical. Excellent value for money and highly recommended.

  87. Tim Allen

    Ideal for me – light and waterproof with lovely clear image. Chuffed! I (will, post Covid) use them for general wildlife spotting I do on my boat tours in the Highlands

  88. Mr Edward Bell (verified owner)

    Really pleased with my binoculars. Great clarity. Best binoculars we have had ever!
    May I suggest the review be at the top as as much as I enjoyed the reviews it is quite
    a long scroll.

  89. Robert McPhee (verified owner)

    I purchased these binoculars last week after reading the positive reviews online. I am a regular watcher of bird life, especially the birds of prey that are often in the skies around me. I have been using RSPB 8 x 42 for some years now, but the difference between these Avalon binoculars and the RSPB ones, is that the image that you are viewing is a lot more sharper and defined. I was out yesterday and was fortunate to see over thirty Red Kites and Buzzards all weaving their magic in the sky! These binoculars are well worth the money and would definitely recommend them for anybody wanting to view subject matter up close. From ordering on the website to delivery to my door, was very efficient.

  90. Simon (verified owner)

    Bought for wife’s birthday. She is really pleased, lightweight but high quality viewing. Perfect.

  91. Diane Bayliss (verified owner)

    Purchased for my husband as a present. He is so pleased with them. Lightweight, easy to use and superb quality. Easy to use and excellent performance. Would highly recommend.

  92. Geoff Hamilton (verified owner)

    Thankyou Avalon, just what it says on the tin. Very happy !

  93. Keith Harper (verified owner)

    Very impressive. Purchased the 10×42 , wasn’t too sure if I would have problems keeping the image still at that size but due to the weight and feel of these binoculars I needn’t have worried.
    Crystal clear image , very good value for money( worth spending a bit more) and fast delivery.
    Many thanks

  94. Dennis Crofts (verified owner)

    Cannot fault these binoculars at all.
    Very light to hold and very clear and good magnification.
    Would definitely recommend.
    And a very good price compared to other binoculars

  95. Steve Quarmby (verified owner)

    Beautiful bright sharp images from a well designed and balanced pai of binoculars – excellent!

  96. Mrs R Carpenter (verified owner)

    I bought these because they were advertised as the lightest weight professional quality binoculars – and guess what? They are, so they are great!

  97. Bill D (verified owner)

    I don’t usually leave reviews unless the service or product strikes me as exceptional (good or bad) but these binocular s are simply great. They look good, they are nice to hold and use and their functionality and ergonomic design is as good ,if not better than binoculars twice the price.

    These benoculers are the best I have e er the pleasure to have. We have identified birds more easily then ever before
    It performed I have ordered a second pair for a most beautiful lady that enjoys the out of doors as much as I do. Thanks for the adventure!

    Hi all at Avalon,
    I received the binoculars very quickly and I am exceptionally pleased with them. It is Sunday the 10th May, and whilst walking the dog I spent time watching a cuckoo and some nesting Skylark. The binoculars performed brilliantly. 10/10

  100. david jarvis (verified owner)

    I’m well pleased with these ‘nockers’ as we call them.
    I also bought a 10×42 monocular, which proved difficult to hold steady enough, so sent it back. Return and refund was swift and efficient, and I’ve now ordered a further two 8×32 nockers which I await with anticipation. Thanks!

  101. Raymond Warden

    Received in perfect working order and I absolutely LOVE the Avalon Binoculars …. as well as the case… I had a Nikon pair ..same power but these are much clearer and I also love the attached lend caps … AWESOME

  102. Mark

    While being isolated as “ high risk for C19” I have taken up backyard bird watching. These binoculars are perfect for this. They are clear, easy to focus and light.

  103. Laurie Messer

    These binoculars work well.
    Light weight nice looking. I use them mostly for bird watching. Like the front covers stay attached to binoculars when in use.

  104. Kelvin Doble (verified owner)

    Excellent in every respect and so much better than my previous binoculars which I unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) lost. Only problem is my partner now wants her own pair so will be purchasing another pair

  105. Susan Brown (verified owner)

    Did some research on various sites . Went on the Avalon site & was impressed with the information on how to choose the right pair.
    Chose the 10 x 42 PRO HDs . Purchased online & they arrived the next day.
    They certainly live up to their description.
    We are extremely pleased & would highly recommend them.
    The service ..delivery & goods are all first class

  106. Les Shears (verified owner)

    Quick delivery high quality and very clear lght weight easy to handle ery sleek

  107. Mark (verified owner)

    Very pleased. Arrived quickly and soon discovered how better these binoculars are than my old pair.

  108. Barry Hood (verified owner)

    Great purchase, very clear and better than other bins I have, just for me to spend a little extra does make a big difference and I know I could spend a lot more but am very pleased with this purchase

  109. T C (verified owner)

    Pleased with the quality, light weight , fast delivery . Only disappointed with the fact that they are described as platinum, and when arrived they are white . Platinum to me would be a silver grey type colour.
    All said and done they grow on you , so decided to keep them

  110. R Nicholds (verified owner)

    The Binos came in two days so very pleased, l am over the moon with them. I am a wildlife photographer and I only want pin sharp pictures, these Binos give me pin sharp images without any fuss at all. I would recommend anybody who wants a really great pair of Binos that won’t break the bank and gives you stunning images in a compact and light unit. They are really worth a look.

  111. Lesley Watson (verified owner)

    Amazing!!
    My husband treated me to these, he has binoculars already & when we go out for walks along the canal or into woodland areas or to wildlife trust destinations we can now use together. I’ve had them for just over a week & have used them numerous times, they’re lovely looking, very lightweight, easy to use & focus is scissor sharp! Will definitely recommend to family & friends plus the price & delivery time was superb. Excellent customer service
    Brilliant….. Thank you

    Very satisfied with these binoculars especially as I wear glasses and have a cataract in one eye. Vision excellent.

  113. Glynis Brown (verified owner)

    I’m just going to say ‘ditto’ to all of the above good reviews
    I am so very pleased, my treat to me and worth every pound.
    And I cannot fault the company, very good packaging, quick delivery. If ever I need to, I would buy again from this company. If they do read this, Thank you very much, I’m very happy with my new classy binoculars 😎

  115. Chris (verified owner)

    Very quick and efficient delivery.
    The product itself is excellent: light weight for the size; easy to use; optically great – very sharp image near and far; good field of view and magnification. Ideal for general birding usage.

  116. Hope Thompson

    I have been wanting a good pair for several years, but was frustrated by my own lack of knowledge on how to buy. On one of my internet searches I came across Avalon Optics. I can not thank them enough for the explanation and how to pick out the pair that was right for me (bird watching). I absolutely love the pair I got. The view is crystal clear, and I found them easy to adjust for my vision. I really don’t have anything to compare them to, except a very old cheap pair that I have, but in my opinion these are fabulous! My search I’d done 🎉

  117. Matt

    Great set of binoculars, producing high level of clarity for wildlife / nature viewing. They also feel very robust. Bought them in summer 2019 and have handled great so far on 2x adventures – hiking holiday in the alps, and for wildlife spotting in Costa Rica. For the price I think these are really good value.

  118. Maurice (verified owner)

    Ideal for my needs unfortunately can’t get out to really appreciate them under prevailing conditions

  119. G Appleby (verified owner)

    Bought these for my wife as we often walk by the coast & in the country.
    They are very light & easy to use, images are crystal clear…

  120. John Vandenberg

    This was my second purchase. First was a Christmas present for a friend. I enjoyed using hers and decided to buy a pair for myself. Excellent binoculars.

  121. Norman E Jalbert

    Bought them for my husband’s birthday. He likes them. Lightweight not bulky. He is very much so enjoying them. He is rating them perfect .

  122. Barrie Hatton (verified owner)

    Very nice binoculars thank you

  123. David Grainger (verified owner)

    Magic; really clear images at all distances and I received them within 24 hours of ordering. What a bargain.

  124. 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!!!

  125. Chris Smith

    Just received my Avalon 10×42 pro binoculars and I am highly impressed at there clarity, they feel great in my hands and very light, I am extremely happy with my purchase.

  126. 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.

  127. Roy Harries (verified owner)

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

    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.

  129. 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.

  130. 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 .

  131. Kim Duggan

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

  132. Sydney Gordon

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

  133. 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!

  134. 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.

  135. 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.

  136. 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.

  137. 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.

  138. 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

  139. Nigel (verified owner)

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

  140. 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!

  141. MICHAEL

    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.

  142. 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.

  143. 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.

  144. Darren (verified owner)

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

  145. 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

  146. GARY SUTCLIFFE (verified owner)

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

  147. 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.

  148. 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.

  149. 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

  150. 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.

  151. 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.

  152. 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.

  153. Pauline (verified owner)

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

  154. Steve Hanwell (verified owner)

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

  155. Alex P M

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

  156. 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.

  157. 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.

    Great speedy delivery.
    Lighter and more convenient than my 30+ year old 7X50’s!

    Great best ever

  162. Christopher Maitland

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

  163. 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!

  164. 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

  165. Pamela

    Good? No! EXCELLENT PRODUCT! Thank you! ?

  166. Stephen Walls

    Excellent i’m Really happy with these binoculars

  167. 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.

  169. Paula (verified owner)

    Love these binoculars

  170. 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.

  171. Elmarie Gebler

    A great Christmas gift! Light and easy to use

  172. 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 .

  173. 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”

  174. Ron pichler

    Binoculars work awesome, love them!

  175. 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.

  176. 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.

  177. 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….
    VERY HAPPY.

  179. Rod Weston

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

  180. STUART LESLIE

    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.

  181. 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.

  182. 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.

  183. 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..

  184. Leonard (Len) Triplett

    Good value, good performance, well worth the price.

  185. 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.

  186. 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.

  187. Bryan Balmer

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

  188. Doug

    Very pleased. Great clarity, lightweight.

    Awesome binos.

  190. Mike Edelstein

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

  191. 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.

  192. 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.

  193. 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.

    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.
