    A Father’s Day gift. Arrived as promised and we are very pleased with the quality.

  2. David Williams (verified owner)

    I am very pleased with these binoculars they arrived two days after my order they were well packed and I had notification of the delivery date and time, I must say these are excellent compared to my last pair the clarity is really good a very nice pair of light weight pocket binoculars at a reasonable price, excellent.

  3. Ann Ward (verified owner)

    The binoculars arrived safely in a couple of days, perfectly packaged. They are fantastic, I like the whole deal, they are lightweight, go easily in the pocket. Easy to change the distance for viewing birds in the garden or for items much further away. What more could you want from a pocket size pair of binoculars.

  4. susan sweeney

    Arrived promptly. Very lightweight and ideal for hiking / birdwatching.
    Good clear lens. Very pleased so far.

  5. Brian (verified owner)

    Present for a ten year old who is delighted with them. I felt it was better to give adult binoculars rather than ones made for a child as they would last into adulthood

  6. Geoffrey Place (verified owner)

    Delivered very quickly. This pair of binoculars was purchased for ease of use on my usual morning walk. Nicely compact they fit in my pocket and are perfect for bird and animal spotting. My usual binoculars are a bit too heavy to hang around the neck for protracted periods. The Avalon compact are very light and convenient, so glad I bought them.

  7. Gary (verified owner)

    Great little product, lightweight and compact yet seem robust and sturdy. Good clarity, focus and range. Well priced and excellent delivery speed

  8. Charlotte (verified owner)

    I bought these for my son who has become a volunteer ranger and he is delighted with them. They are so light they can easily go in his pocket but they don’t sacrifice that much in terms of magnification.

  9. Henry Martin (verified owner)

    A birthday present for my 10 year old grandson. Light weight and no hassle to bear around his neck on the strap supplied.. Easy to adjust. Very clear image. Robust. Encouraging his interest in nature afar such as birds and mammals. He is delighted. The adjustment between being set for glasses or not is a fiddle but not a major issue in his case since he normally wears glasses. Overall with that reservation a superb beginner’s binocular and readily pocketed to sports events.

  10. Keith Read (verified owner)

    Small, lightweight binoculars, very clear vision.

  11. Sheila Lucy Ball (verified owner)

    I am absolutely delighted with these binoculars. They are lightweight, efficient with perfect clarity. I walk most days, and put them in a pocket or bag. I recommend them most highly.

  12. Tim Carver (verified owner)

    Great optics for pocket sized. Very good price.

  13. Norma (verified owner)

    I wanted good magnification in lightweight system so that I could continue to play bowls with my failing eyesight. They are just perfect.

  14. Eve Nowosad (verified owner)

    We wanted a small lightweight pair of binoculars to take on hikes & on our travels and these were exactly what we were looking for. They are really compact but nice & sharp and we’re very happy with them. Wish we’d bought a pair years ago.

  22. Susan Lewis (verified owner)

    Purchased these binoculars for my Husbands 69th Birthday, we are lucky to have a large rather wild garden which attracts lots of wildlife including woodpeckers, Jay’s and squirrels, extremely pleased with the quality, superb focus for its size, our grandchildren have already made a rota so they can share it too, it’s great to encourage youngsters to get involved in Nature, thank you

  23. Christine Dyball (verified owner)

    Bought for my nature loving grandaughter for her 9th birthday for bird spotting etc.. She was over the moon with them. Nice binoculars excellent service.. Thank you

  24. Winifred Wilson (verified owner)

    I have been looking for a small pair of binoculars which are light enough to carry round my neck on my daily exercise, and these fit the bill very well. At first, one of the eye cups didn’t stay rolled back properly, but by standing them on end overnight, the problem was solved. It would have been even better if the neck strap had gone through the case, so that it didn’t drop off when I take them out of the case, but I usually have a pocket for it.

  25. katy birch (verified owner)

    Absolutely thrilled they are perfect for our walks on the Sussex Downs

  26. Lynn (verified owner)

    Bought for a youngster who is very inquisitive and loves them, they are nice quality and very neat, just perfect for exploring outdoors

    Fantastic binoculars! Sharp picture. Partner loves watching the birds in our back garden with them 🙂

  31. Charlotte Rait (verified owner)

    My 93 year old mother is delighted with these binoculars as they are very light and easily adjusted. She enjoys watching the birds in the garden from the comfort of her sitting room.

  32. Dave Sweeney (verified owner)

    A great product, we needed something primarily light to carry with good magnification, we got what we wanted. We knew the product would satisfy the weight criterion immediately, fabulously lightweight, a nice touch is the belt ‘tab’ on the carrying case.. Magnification is as stated and is totally adequate, it’s easy to use and comfortable to wear. Overall delighted with the product. We were additionally amazed that it was delivered so quickly despite being the pre-Xmas week. We have no ‘issues’ with theses glasses and I am happy to endorse them . In summary a 100% satisfied customer

  33. Christine Dean (verified owner)

    just back from a holiday to Machu Picchu. Great for seeing far-off details.

  34. sandra higgins

    Very pleased with this product exactly what I wanted for carrying around in my pocket /handbag. Will be sitting ‘up in the Gods’ at The Royal Albert Hall later this year and can’t wait to make good use of them

  35. Joe Layburn

    Brilliant binoculars for my young son who is new to bird watching and now never without them! I must say that Avalon is a terrific company- great products and really helpful customer support and care.
