  1. Leonard Holder (verified owner)

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

  2. Vanetta Joffe (verified owner)

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

  3. 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.

  4. Jords (verified owner)

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Mike Renahan (verified owner)

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

  9. 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 .

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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…

  19. 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

  20. 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.

  21. 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

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. 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

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. Simon (verified owner)

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

  29. 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.

  30. Geoff Hamilton (verified owner)

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

  31. 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

  32. 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

  33. Steve Quarmby (verified owner)

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

  34. 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!

  35. 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. If you are thinking of buying a pair then don’t hesitate!

  36. Robert Foster

    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!

  37. Richard

    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

  38. 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!

  39. 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

  40. 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.

  41. 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.

  42. 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

  43. 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

  44. Les Shears (verified owner)

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

  45. Mark (verified owner)

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

  46. 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

  47. 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

  48. 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.

  49. Lesley Watson (verified owner)

    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

  50. Alan 28th April 2020 (verified owner)

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

  51. 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 😎

  53. 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.

  54. 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 🎉

  55. 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.

  56. Maurice (verified owner)

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

  57. 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…

  58. 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.

  59. 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 .

  60. Barrie Hatton (verified owner)

    Very nice binoculars thank you

  61. David Grainger (verified owner)

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

  62. 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!!!

  63. 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.

  64. Susan Hodges And Kirsten H.

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

  66. 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.

  67. 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.

  68. 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 .

  69. Kim Duggan

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

  70. Sydney Gordon

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

  71. 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!

  72. 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.

  73. 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.

  74. 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.

  75. 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.

  76. 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

  77. Nigel (verified owner)

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

  78. 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.

  80. 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.

  81. 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.

  82. Darren (verified owner)

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

  83. 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

  84. GARY SUTCLIFFE (verified owner)

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

  85. 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.

  86. 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.

  87. 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

  88. 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.

  89. 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.

  90. 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.

  91. Pauline (verified owner)

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

  92. Steve Hanwell (verified owner)

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

  93. Alex P M

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

  94. 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.

  95. 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!

  98. H Grindley (verified owner)

    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!

  102. 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

    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.

    Love these binoculars

    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.

  109. Elmarie Gebler

    A great Christmas gift! Light and easy to use

  110. 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 .

  111. 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”

  112. Ron pichler

    Binoculars work awesome, love them!

  113. 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.

  114. 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.

  115. 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….

  116. Laurie (verified owner)

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

  117. 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.

  119. 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.

  120. 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.

  121. 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..

  122. Leonard (Len) Triplett

    Good value, good performance, well worth the price.

  123. 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.

  124. 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.

  125. Bryan Balmer

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

  126. Doug

    Very pleased. Great clarity, lightweight.

  127. Lex Dekoning

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

  128. Mike Edelstein

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

  129. 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.

  130. 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.

  131. 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.

  132. 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.

  133. Nic

    Excellent all round! Top shelf.

  134. 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.

  135. Bobby

    Nice bins… great value…

  136. 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

  137. 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!

    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.

  144. Christine

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

  145. 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.
