  1. ken Nicholson (verified owner)

    problem with eye cup but quickly replaced with new pair within 4 days very happy with
    the binoculars all good

  2. Bethan

    These are binoculars of exceptional quality for a very reasonable price. I have also been extremely happy with the customer service of Avalon Optics. Thank you!

  3. Brian Speers

    Excellent binoculars. They were a present off my wife and I am enjoying using them very much. They are so clear and a good size. They are a good weight, not too heavy and it’s easy enough to carry them around my neck.

  4. Stephen Orr (verified owner)

    Bought as a gift and recipient is extremely happy with them. Great size for birdwatching .

  5. Joanne Stawinoga

    better than I expected. Had a pair of 12 x 25 Tasco and just couldn’t seem to get them adusted right . probably operator error. but these Avalon are super easy to use and much brighter image , Really happy with them.

  6. David

    Wanted to buy a decent pair of binoculars for a safari trip to South Africa, did a lot of research and finally settled on these. We were not disappointed. Prompt delivery and well packed. These are the first binoculars I have used that give me a razor sharp single image whilst wearing my glasses, had no problems adjusting or focusing them. Took them to our local RSPB reserve for a trial run and both my wife and I were extremely impressed with how well they performed. Well worth the money.

  7. Richard Newman (verified owner)

    These are the first binoculars I’ve ever bought. I’ve got them to look at the birds that frequent our back garden as we have a huge jacaranda and a couple of other smaller trees and an orange tree. We’ve just had a new rear deck built with a roof and it’s great to sit outside and enjoy an uninterrupted view, as we have the agricultural section of a high school at the bottom of the yard and then a park beyond that. The binoculars allow us a better, closer look at the birds which come to perch in the trees. I picked this particular pair after reading several reviews of different brands. The only disappointment is that the instruction leaflet is obviously a generic one and not a specific one for this particular model. Otherwise, so far…a week…they appear to fulfil expectations.

  8. Deborah Beck

    Have just returned from Costa Rica where I tested my new binoculars. They are fab so pleased with them was able to see high up in to the rainforest and view beautiful birds.

  9. Nicola (verified owner)

    Bought them as a gift, they have been perfect. Great communication in the delivery process and fast as well even tho it was to NZ.

  10. carolyn day

    light easy to use excellent magnification

  11. Phil Bell

    Compact and lightweight pair of quality binoculars with sharp powerful lenses . Very well made and well worth the money at that price .

  12. Noel Bell

    Bought these for my own general use. I find them very comfortable and easy to hold and manipulate. The image clarity is excellent as is the brightness.

  13. Stephen Dixon (verified owner)

    These binoculars have proven to be very good for the price. I have not used them extensively yet, but in the short time I’ve had them they have been very useful.

  14. Julie Coombes

    Excellent binoculars for the price. Easy to use straight out of the box. Crystal-clear view and lightweight to carry. Ordered and received promptly. RECOMMENDED PURCHASE.

  15. Bill Wilson (verified owner)

    Wanted these for my wife’s birthday. She is a keen bird-watcher.
    Clarity is great and the compact lightness enables steady viewing. We have had other binoculars but find the Avalon 10×42 binoculars to be ideal for bird-watching and all round viewing. My wife is “wrapped” with my gift.

  16. John March

    I purchased these binoculars as a present for my granddaughter. I am very pleased with them and my granddaughter is also. She wanted them for bird watching and for star gazing. So far she has not been able to use them for the stars but has found them to be fine for bird watching. I was keen to find a pair of binoculars to cover both subjects at a reasonable weight. I am confident they will prove to be fine for both her needs once the weather allows good clear night skies.

  17. Philip

    I am very pleased with the binoculars – great focus, well made and very neat. Impressed with the strap and general quality thank you

  18. Ray Reynolds

    Very pleased, excellent value, why spend hundreds when you get binoculars like these, prompt well organised delivery also

  19. Lawrie (verified owner)

    Happy with these bino’s , clarity of lenses is up there with more expensive brands, focus ring is smooth and precise, eye cups work great with or without glasses on. All round really good quality at a fair price.

  20. Gill Moody

    Great pair of binoculars at a great price. Easy to use and lightweight they will be great for taking on walks and bird spotting. Customer service was outstanding too – first pair to arrive were faulty and following emails/messaging to Avalon, within 24 hours a new pair were winging their way to me. Cannot fault this response.

  21. Tom M

    Exactly as described, cant fault them in any way !

  22. Tim Colgate

    Haven’t had a real opportunity to use them fully since they arrived. However, they arrived the day after I ordered them and setting up was fairly easy – I did use YouTube – and the initial viewing from my house appears to be clear and the the optics crisp. They appear to be a great purchase. Thank you Avalon, your explanation of the different types of binoculars enabled me to make this purchase. Really impressed

  23. John Cartwright

    Great binoculars at a great price. Perfect for watching wildlife, good clear vision, brilliant for the price

  24. Dave Weaving

    At this price I was more than happy. They are relatively light , well made and the view through them is clear and precise. I am more than happy with them.

  25. Albert Cheong (verified owner)

    Not too large, lightweight, and I find it small enough to carry in my small backpack without compromising the space in the pack for other things, clarity is very good compared to other binoculars that I had.

  26. Betty Morrison (verified owner)

    Thank you for prompt delivery. The clarity of these binoculars is a little disappointing compared to my previous pair which were stolen, For the price they are satisfactory.

  27. Martin

    Great quality binoculars at a very competitive price. Light weight and comfortable to use., and easy to set diopter focus. Rapid delivery.
    Easy to focus, and will focus down to about 10 feet, which is helpful in the garden.
    Feel very solid and well made. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to others.

  28. Martin Canton

    Great price for the quality of these binoculars. Delivery was very quick, and instructions more than adequate. Setting up focus was very straightforward, and they are light and comfortable in use. I have only used budget binoculars previously, and was amazed at the clarity of the image. I was also pleased that they focus down to about 10 feet, which is helpful for watching birds in the garden.
    Overall these binoculars are excellent value for money, and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

  29. max ketchin

    It’s a long time since I’ve had binoculars and I was looking for a pair to use for bird spotting in and around my garden. These binoculars are perfect, they are a great size and have brilliant optics. They are very clear and although i have a slight problem with one of my eyes they are easy to set up to obtain clear vision all the time. The pop out eye cups are great and save messy marks on the viewing lenses. I would recommend these binoculars very highly indeed

  30. glenys santer

    i needed new binoculars as i now wear glasses and this was difficult with my old bins. the difference is fantastic, nice and light good clarity especially when the light is not good.value for money.

  31. J. Robinson

    Very pleased with the Binoculars. Not yet field tested but I’m sure they will be just fine going on the results of using them around the garden. Very clear and sharp images

  32. Derek J. Wood

    Really decent binoculars for the price. Like a lot of Ornithologists I always went for names like Kowa and Opticron. Both made in Japan. Avalon have all the accessories you expect to find on more pricey binoculars. I like the soft feel, the thumb grips, the attached lens caps ( which can be replaced if lost) and really good quality carrying strap. My only gripe is the centre focus wheel has too much travel before you get sharp images of woodland birds. Time you get it in focus it usually has flown off! Would like to know more about the company and where they are made etc. I am convinced in the near future Avalon will be as widely known as Leica or Zeiss.

  33. Alan Conner

    Ok but clear markings for chosen diopter and inter eye settings would be helpful. Perhaps I should have tried other makes in stores first

  34. Frank Agosto

    I chose Avalon binoculars to replace a pair of other branded bin’s stolen from my car. First impressions are favourable and the general ease of use and accurate adjustments appear far superior to previous binoculars I’ve owned.

  35. patricia hurley

    Excellent customer service! One of the extending eye pieces did not stay in position when pulled out. I emailed Avalonoptics on Monday; a new replacement pair arrived Tuesday!

  36. Thiago Kathirasoo

    I had grown used to my old Swift Trilytes and was not expecting the Avalon 10×42 Pro HD to impress me but the image quality is very good and particularly so in low light conditions. Highly recommended

  37. Robeena

    Bought them for birdwatching and although I haven’t had a chance to try them out on an outing yet, I have been able to test them out on the trees around my home and I can say that they are easy to handle and once you adjust the settings, the views are crisp and clear.

  38. Dan (verified owner)

    Great value for these compact and clear binoculars. Easy to adjust and ideal for my line of work (horse trainer), even in the dark.

  39. Rex Dale (verified owner)

    Very happy with purchase.Used yesterday at Ironman event in Torquay Vic. Very clear at 4oo to 500 metres out to sea.
    Very clear image and easy to use.Might have to buy another pair as a gift for my daughter.

  40. Kellen Ronnau

    The price is considerably less then the brand names so I was skeptical of the claims made by the company. We just want to be able to watch the duck on our pond and do a little bird watching. The binoculars are great with clear views and excellent details. They are light weight and easy to use. The carrying case and strap are a little cheap but they work well. Even if I lose them I can buy another pair and still be less cost than the competition. I would recommend them to anyone who wants binoculars but is not a fanatic. For the average user these are much more affordable and work well.

  41. Kathrin Asto (verified owner)

    As expected, the lenses and the binocular itself are of excellent quality.
    It was a Christmas present for my husband, he is very happy.
    Service and delivery was excellent too!

  42. EC

    Clear vision field, excellent for scouring mountains in search for wandering sheep.

  43. Alexander Brymer

    Now that Christmas has passed I have tried out my 1st pair of binoculars and i am very happy with my purchase they are very easy to use and the sharpness of what I have seen so far is absolutely fantastic definitely money well spent thanks

  44. John Jerwood

    Fast delivery and very pleased with the binoculars. They are light, easy to adjust and provide a clear image when observing birds and other wildlife. Good value.

  45. Emma

    Very impressed, bought for a Christmas present so have just tried them out. They are weighty but not too heavy. Feel good quality. Very happy with the magnification. As for delivery, couldn’t fault it at all. Overall, very happy and will recommend.

  46. Christine Straker

    Lovely binoculars, great Christmas present for my husband.

  47. Lewis Taylor

    Excellent quality optics. Good clear field of view, easily adjusted, lightweight and amazing value. Spent a long time researching and eventually settled on these for quality and value. Not regretted it.

  48. Stephen Cluff

    these binoculars are very good I live on the east coast so a lot of ship watching a little blip in the distance whoosh you got a ship easy to use straight out of box

  54. john kent

    give avalon 10 out of 10 for these 10×42 value for money as i live by the sea a lot of ships on the horizon as blips made me smile can see the light on the vessel now these are easy to use and are well worth the money

  55. Rob Fischer (verified owner)

    My daughter is using my pair of 10×42 binoculars for her PhD on birds in the Darwin area. Since she likes them so much I decided a pair for herself might be a good idea and I can reclaim mine. A good x-mas present

  56. Dorothy Pratt (verified owner)

    Had various new pairs of binoculars both cheap and expensive over the years due to bu,ping, dropping and loss. Tried other binoculars before choosing these. Clarity is brilliant and great over long distances. Easily adjustable between my husbands long sightedness and my short sightedness. Comfortable feel in the hands, light to carry .
    Meet our needs perfectly ?????

  57. G Wilson (verified owner)

    Tried the new binoculars on our property and they are very good. Able to identify livestock and wildlife from great distances. Better than the cheap pair that we use to have. (until they broke) New pair smaller and easier to carry around.

  58. Pat

    Amazing. So clear and with the neck strap, perfect

  59. Graeme Waters (verified owner)

    Ideal for bird watching. Compact for storage in car

  60. Bob Lowth (verified owner)

    Fantastic binoculars – used a friends in South Africa on safari for 11 days – so lightweight, easy to focus, strong & waterproof … certainly brought all the birds, animals (the BIG 4 & many many more), insects and scenery into awesome sharp focus. Loved them so much, on return to Australia, ordered my own pair Immediately. Very happy – have retired my bigger, heavier & cumbersome Pentax 12×50 5.6 XCF.

  61. Colin Gimson

    Just tried these binoculars from my house but the clarity is brilliant. Very light compared to the ones i had and much sharper. First impressions suggest these are a really good buy. Looking forward to using them on my holidays.

  62. William Bruce Bartlett (verified owner)

    Tried them out this morning looking good and nice and light to carry

  65. Rod P. (verified owner)

    Used the binoculars on the weekend and found them to be very clear and easy to use and suited my purpose very well

  66. Greg

    Bought these to use on a safari. Had an old 8×40 bulky set from another brand which i didnt really care for and frankly never used. Now that i wear glasses i dont care for binoculars at all BUT these were really fantastic. The images were crystal clear and for safari biewing they were truly percect. A friend used them and bought a pair himself mid safari. Love them!

  67. Chris Manford (verified owner)

    These binoculars mostly met my expectations. They are lightweight and provide a clear, sharp image. However I was not able to use them effectively with glasses. I have had a pair of Carl Zeiss binoculars for bird watching for over 30 years and compared to them the Avalons are not as good. My wife couldn’t use them at all and has gone back to using the Zeiss binoculars. I have better luck with them and am happy to use them, so we now have a pair each.

  68. Ryan

    If you are like me, you are trawling the internet in search of an affordable pair of binoculars. I found this pair and read all the reviews on this website and on Procular and was so impressed I decided to purchase them. I cannot say how happy I am with the purchase! The image is crystal clear, they are so easy to use and can be used from a distance of 3m. They are really a great pair of binoculars. The low price is just a bonus.

  69. TERIE SCOTT

    I bought them as a gift for my sister and she is into bird watching. She told me they were great and how all the colors just come alive. She was very happy to have got them and said she would tell fellow birders about how wonderful they are. Thank you so much for such a great product and a great gift for her. Terie Scott

  70. Rex (verified owner)

    Easy to order. Fast delivery.
    Binoculars are very impressive. Nice size and weight with excellent optics.
    Highly recommended.

  72. Jim Murray (verified owner)

    I found that these binoculars ticked all the boxes for me in respect of being a good price, fairly lightweight and a compact sized unit. The lenses themselves have, on early testing, provided really great sharp images. My intention is to use them for wildlife spotting and landscapes. I feel sure that these binoculars will do an excellent job, so I am well satisfied. Thanks Avalon for mailing them promptly, and giving excellent service all round.

  73. John (verified owner)

    Great around Binoculars at a very reasonable price. Have used then in Ireland over past month for bird watching and general viewing and happy with results. Recommended as great alround binoculars.

  74. Gail (verified owner)

    I haven’t really used them yet. We are off to Africa soon, so time will tell. The focus isn’t terribly easy in my backyard. They are a bit weighty and large so I hope they will be ok.

  75. Britt (verified owner)

    Great, especially for the price! They are bright and clear, if a little blurry at further focus levels. An awesome edition to my birding gear, and I am very much looking forward to taking them on bush walks and holidays.

  76. Diego (verified owner)

    I bought the Mini HD first, and within a week my wife had basically claimed them as their own. So I got the Pro HD shortly after, and I couldn’t be happier. They’re both great for whale watching, boat watching in the harbor, and even full moon watching. The Pro HD are still light enough to held with one hand, although my wife prefers the Mini HD, and she doesn’t mind giving up the 2X difference.

  77. Bridget O’Connor

    My first new pair of binoculars after having hand me downs for 20 years.
    Needless to say I wish I had done this years before.
    Great binoculars clear and sharp for my deck bird watching.

  79. Craig (verified owner)

    Overall, I am very satisfied with these binoculars.

    The optical image is bright and sharp – which is clearly the key starting point. I tested them against my Tasco 10×50 Porro Prism binos (admittedly now 20 years old but in excellent condition) and these are brighter despite the smaller objective lens. They are light weight and reasonably compact, given the image quality and magnification. The attached objective lens caps work well. The eye piece caps a little less so for me, as I use a tripod adaptor for carrying, rather than a strap (which the cap is designed to hang off). The materials make it very grippy, which will be good in adverse weather. The focus adjustment requires quite a bit of turn to go from close distance to far, but the plus side is it offers excellent fine-tuning focus adjustment. I did not measure if the 3m minimum focus distance is completely accurate, but I can confirm that it does focus quite close (especially compared to my 10×50).

    On the slightly negative side:one of the twisting eye cups is too stiff to get to the most outward position. Additionally, it can also be a little difficult to get the eye accurately aligned for a completely clear image – it seems to need to be very precisely in position. Perhaps this will just be a case of getting used to the new ergonomics.

  80. Steve (verified owner)

    Haven’t used these for their intended purpose yet at the MotoGP later in the year but there’s no reason to doubt they’ll be anything other than perfect! Wandering around Phillip Island means you’re likely to see the best and worst of the weather so we needed binoculars to cope. All the reviews suggested we couldn’t go wrong with these.
    The whole process from purchase to receipt was easy and well managed and the discounted price sealed the deal. Very happy. Thank you!

  81. John B (verified owner)

    The binoculars are fantastic! They are well built and have a sharp bright image. Great value for money. I would also compliment Avalon on the fast efficient delivery and effective communication.

  82. Shilpa (verified owner)

    I ordered a pair of Avalon 10×42 PRO HD binoculars over the Easter long weekend and received them a couple of days later. The website information, ordering process and delivery speed is very impressive!
    I tested the binoculars out in the back yard and found setting it up very easy. The clarity, depth of field and ease of use is already impressive! The weight is also light considering how powerful these binoculars seem and my eyes felt very comfortable. The size is also comfortable and easy to handle. The carry bag is a handsome and compact although side pockets might be a useful addition to future versions.

    These are my first ever pair of binoculars and I am very much looking forward to exploring the world around me with them!
    Thank you, Avalon Optics, for such a great, easy to use product – and a very affordable price!

  83. jeff Coppersmith

    I have only used these new binoculars for NASCAR and they were perfect for that. I purchased them for my wife for our safari because the are smaller and lighter than the pair I own. We may have to trade off with this pair since they were so good.

  84. Francois Cappy (verified owner)

    I could be a bit biased having only owned horse racing kind of binoculars but I’m very happy with that new pair that I had for 3 months. Really good and sharp viewing. Looking forward to my holidays in West Canada in a couple of months..

  85. Judith carter

    The first pair of binoculars I have actually been able to see birds while wearing my glasses. These are perfect . Thank you.

  86. David Haynes

    Used them today to watch Little Athletics and I could identify my grandkids on the other side of the oval who were not recognisable to the naked eye. Exactly what I wanted them for. Very happy

  87. Col Chaffey

    The delivery of my binoculars was communicated extremely well and arrived very quickly. They are as advertised, clear and sharp! Could not be happier ???

    More than adequate for primary use which is bird finding. Compact and light.

    We are yet to use these for holiday purposes, but we have tried them out at home and they are easy to use with good vision. Lightweight, which will be good for our purposes. Excellent delivery times. We are actually planning on buying a second pair, so that we don’t have to share!

  92. Emily (verified owner)

    I purchased these as my first own pair for bird watching, after always borrowing binoculars from much more experienced twitchers. They are perfect – extremely light weight and so compact that I carry them with me in my handbag in my day-to-day. They provide an exquisitely clear view. They arrived quickly and beautifully packaged, were easy to ‘set up’ and the carry bag has a very convenient belt loop. All of this for an excellent price.

  93. Alan D

    Great customer service, well packaged and prompt delivery. Binoculars are great price and are ideal for my intended use. Highly recommended.

  97. Mel Foster

    My wife is a birder and had Nikon binoculars for several years until she lost them. We decided to try the Avalon brand this time and she is very pleased. She feels they are every bit the equal of the Nikons at a much lower price.

  98. Wayne Ingleton (verified owner)

    I bought the 10 X 42 binos for hunting and found them to be very good. They certainly compare favourably against the more expensive versions that I have tried. The service offered to me by the team at Avalon optics was first class and could not be faulted. I would sincerely recommend this product to other hunters who were like me “lost in the minefield of what brand to purchase”. The Avalon binos do work a treat and the only thing negative I have is that I did lose a lens cover so just check yours before venturing out into the bush and make sure that they firmly attached. I have no problems recommending this product to other hunters.

  99. Rob d (verified owner)

    I’m very pleased with these binoculars. They are everything I hoped for, lightweight and relatively compact with a crisp clear image. My wife and I had them at the day/night cricket in Adelaide and we were both very happy with them. Although I normally wear specs I find it easy to use these binoculars without them.

  102. Rod (verified owner)

    These binoculars are brilliant. My old ones are about twenty years old and getting shaky so I decided to update. So happy! One word terrific.

  103. Keith Garbutt (verified owner)

    The Avalon 10×42 PRO HD Binoculars (BLACK) have lived up to all expectations as indicated by the extensive reviews offered by other owners of these terrific binoculars, this influenced me to buy them. They certainly enhance all images with wonderful clarity. My wife and I have used small Nikon binoculars for many years to study the birdlife at home and wherever we travelled around parts of Australia, but they do not come anywhere near the Avalon 10×42 PRO HD Binoculars. I most certainly will recommend them to others.

    One word. EXCELLENT.

  110. James B. Ellis

    I compared a lot of products on line and in stores. These are almost 1/2 the weight and cost of any comparable binoculars. I just got back from a 1 week trip to Maui where they got the ultimate test of sand, beach salt water spray and rain in the mountains. At the end of the each day I used a can of compressed air for keyboard cleaning to blow the sand out. Some reviews complained about the case only having a belt loop as the straps attach to the binoculars. I didn’t find this a problem as the lens covers front and back stay firmly in place and are attached in the front and to the strap in the back so they don’t get lost. I would highly recommend these binoculars.

  111. Richard Casper

    I have been monitoring these glasses to purchase for some time. Now that I have a pair, I must say they are really great. They are truly worth the money spent! When I take our Alaskan Trip I will put them through further test (cold weather). If you are planning on purchasing a pair, you won’t go wrong.

    Bought these for a 6 week driving tour of New Zealand in early 2018. They arrived promptly and in perfect condition. After only a short time trying them out, i think they will be everything i want. Excellent value.

  115. Nerysse Fodor (verified owner)

    Perfect! My husband and I bought these Binoculars for Birdwatching. We have tacken them on a road trip out to Winton QLD and they are fabulous, exactly what we wanted. Great quality, we can see so much detail on distant birds. Thank you Avalon!

  116. Sonny Lannin

    They are just what the dr ordered

  117. Lindsay martin

    Size and weight good, great for intended purpose, wildlife and distance scenery
    Focus adjustment could be quicker

  118. Gary

    I’m very happy with my new binoculars. The image is very clear and they are light to hold. I took them boating on the weekend and had great views of the humpback whales. They are great for birdwatching as well. Great buy!

  119. Cory Williams (verified owner)

    Nice and light weight and the optics seem to be excellent. They are distinctly brighter than my existing Bushnell binocs. Purchased for wildlife viewing and very happy with them.

  122. Ray C (verified owner)

    Great product and great service. My wife and I have used our Avalon 10×42 PRO HD a number of times now and they are just what the Doctor ordered for our needs. We have used them for looking at wildlife from a distance and find them very bright, crisp and clear.
    Many thanks

  123. Ian Howell (verified owner)

    Thank you for the great service. I purchased my (10×42 Pro HD) for bird watching and have only had them for a week and for the first time I can successfully focus on small birds and successfully identify them now. These are a great choice as the focus is very sharp and clear at any distance. Highly recommend them. Thank you.

  124. Nik

    Was really surprised how well the binocular built and its Australian product, thanks guys

  125. Roin Keeler (verified owner)

    Delighted, everything you said they would be and more. practical size, great clear vision, well presented, great value for money. I see much more detailing on the birds in my garden, wonderful. Many thanks.

  126. Alan

    The best binoculars I have used the view is unbelievabl .
    Being disabled I sit outside mostly watching the planes which I can track on my IPad.
    I watch the birds when they feed on the feed I put out for them. I know I have made the right choice
    I have a son who is a game keeper so I will most likely but him the same.

  127. Guy Boyd

    Love these binoculars!! Easy grip, nice weight, and wonderful optics!!! Easy to adjust! Looking forward to using them on a cruise.

  128. Dallas Stoodley (verified owner)

    Excellent product and company to deal with. Highly recommended! Bought them for my husband for Father’s Day and he is very happy with them.

  129. Ian (verified owner)

    Easy to use, clear sharp image at any distance. The light weight is exactly why we bought them as we plan to travel overseas with them. Looking forward to using them on safari in Africa.

  130. John Chamberlain (verified owner)

    Great service by Avalon Optics. The quality and balance of the Avalon Pro HD is exceptionally good. Only used a couple of times but no complaints.

  131. Ray (verified owner)

    The binoculars justify their description. They handle nicely, vision is crystal clear and I see no aberrations The service from Avalon is exceptional. My order arrived, well packed, excellent condition, but they had an image problem. Within two days of advising Avalon, a replacement pair were delivered. Needless to say I appreciated the no fuss, no conditions, prompt supply of an excellent pair of binoculars.

  132. Jenny (verified owner)

    Early days but they seem just fine. Very clear, nice in the hand and great price.

  133. Ralph Cessario

    Love the light weight and quality. Great price as well.

  134. Norm (verified owner)

    After doing my research,I settled on Avalon10x42. Meets all my expectations. Perform according to all stated specifications.Very Satisfied.

  135. Mark Taylor

    I have only had my Avalon 10×42 binoculars for a couple of days, but so far very happy. The vision is very sharp and they are comfortable to use.
    My only small criticism is that it is a tight fit inside the bag when the strap is attached and there is no way to attach a strap to the bag. This would be a small improvement, but overall very happy with my purchase

  136. Peter Magrath

    Great optics,use for hunting and wild fowling very good in low light conditions,well constructed and light better than my teloscopic sight,price and delivery first class.

  137. Steve

    thanks for the quick delivery, haven’t had much of a chance to use them yet, I purchased them for my upcoming holiday in Europe but I can already see how bright and clear the image is, they are light and easy to adjust

  138. Stuart Reseck (verified owner)

    Honestly I was quite amazed when I looked out them picture clear & crisp. I would highly recommend.

  139. Sen Huang

    The binoculars are really good. My 11 year old son is very happy using the binoculars every day outside the house and in the park. He is slowly developing an interest in bird watching.

  140. Mark (verified owner)

    I purchased these binoculars as a gift for my wife. She loves them! They are light weight and easy to use. We no longer fight over the single pair of binoculars which was great today when we went whale watching. A quality product I will not hesitate to recommend to others. Thank you.

  141. Diane Jellyman

    We purchased two pair for our safari trip to Kenya and Tanzania. They were magic! Everything one could wish for. Incidentally our guides had binnoculars with the same specs very reassuring. Would highly recommend Avalon. THANK YOU.

  142. Ruth Hansard (verified owner)

    I think they will be great for my trip to Alaska, Canada , Sth America and finally Sth Africa. Can’t wait to use them for the wild life in those countries. They will be light enough for packing. I do have good ones but are too heavy for my holidays.Thank you for your prompt service. Would recommend you to all my friends and family.

  143. Jeff Abbott

    Here is my first take. The ordering, shipping and receiving process was outstanding. Everything was well protected in the storage box. I opened the binoculars, connected the strap and went through the process of adjusting the binoculars for my eyes. From what I can tell so far this is exacting what I was looking for. They are a very comfortable weight and fit my hands very well. I like the design of the binoculars. I look forward to using them. Now for what I see as a couple small but nice improvements, ALL related to the carry bag. First, the storage bag for the binoculars needs to be a bit deeper so that the binoculars can be stored with the eye cups extended. Second, it would be nice if the storage bag had a small outside or supplemental small pocket for the cleaning cloth, money, credit cards, etc.. Last, it would be nice if the storage bag had the option of adding an option (side hooks) for an aftermarket carry strap. The only way now is the carry the bag by hand or on your belt.

  144. david

    Early days so cannot comment on quality. look and feel are great, image is very clear. Happy with purchase. Thanks

  145. Christine

    A lovely, stylish pair of light binoculars. Love the twist up eye caps instead of fold down ones. Vision is sharp and field of view is spot on.

  146. Ian

    Wowowowowowowowowow. We have a pair of the Outpost binoculars and a monocular from Avalon and both are excellent, but these are something else entirely. Piun sharp, fantastic field of view, super light and easy to use, weather proof too… Absolutely love them to pieces.

  147. Nitin Shah (verified owner)

    Happy with purchase. Neck strap starts to unravel. I had to tape the ends up to stop this.

  148. Marilyn Clerke (verified owner)

    I use these binoculars for archery and find them excellent for Target and field shooting – overall very pleased with the performance and ease of use.

  149. Chia Bate (verified owner)

    Love them, beautiful binoculars. Very clear, crisp view. I have been watching insects hovering over my garden patch which I cannot see with naked eye. Will be taking them on all my travels.

    Very pleased with my new10 x42 HD’s.Used them in variety of situations on recent holiday in Tasmania..including tracking Albatross over the ocean ,seals on distant rock ledges and variety of distant landscape views .Very impressed with the clarity and ease of use . I wear glasses and found the binoculars easy to use with or without glasses.Excellent product – thank you

  151. Diane Jellyman

    Wow what service ordered them Thursday arrived at the door early Monday morning in NZ! Have time to have a play with them before we go on Safari in June watch this space to see how they perform.

  152. Zach Stephens (verified owner)

    Just recieved my pair of 10×42 HD’s and wow! Dark rainy day here at the moment and the image though these binoculars is still so crisp and clear. Definitely recommended.

  153. Geoff Lammond (verified owner)

    10×42 Pro LD were sent promptly and arrived promptly, have tried in low light conditions and give a clearer image than my old tasco brand, compact and value for money.
    Like nearly all Binoculars I still find them difficult to sight with my glasses on, however what appears to be a sharper image means I can still see better than i imagined without my specs on.
    Thanks Avalon

  154. Graeme Muldoon (verified owner)

    I bought the 10×42 HD’s as a lighter alternative to my excellent 10×50 Pentax binoculars. It is a surprise as to how clear they are and what a wonderful job they do.
    They are an excellent, take anywhere or leave in the glove box pair of binoculars that I am sure will work well for many years. Delivery was excellent.

  155. Jennifer (verified owner)

    I am thrilled to bits with my 10×42 binoculars…they are light enough, easy to setup and to adjust. Thank you for your speedy delivery.

    Great purchase, everything you can expect for this range of binoculars: great quality optics, lightweight and easy to carry and use at an unbeatable price too (I’ve been looking for a while!!). Didn’t have to ask for any service from Avalon since I’m very happy with the product but delivery was pretty fast.
    Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for the best value for money in this range.

  163. Sue C. (verified owner)

    Having recently moved out of a major city into a small coastal community, surrounded by bush and wildlife, I decided to get binoculars to watch the kookaburras in particular and their antics.
    The Avalon website info was very clear & concise:
    I followed the easy instructions to focus the lenses to my eyesight (with spectacles) and although I’m still learning to be still while using them, I’m enjoying them very much. The magnification is wonderful.
    Also, getting used to the weight of the binoculars around my neck (not heavy but noticeable) and looking forward to using them when I’m out and about exploring my new environment.
    Great price for a “proper” pair of binoculars. Very fast delivery.

  164. Robert Cooke

    Fantastic product excellent value very pleased with purchase and fast and efficient service I highly recommend these binoculars many thanks Avalon.

    To find a company with quality product at a competitive price is hard. But went it is also backed up by first class customer care is a rarity. Do not hesitate to make a purchase, I would recommend the product (Avalon 10×42 PRO HD) and company.

  170. Perry (verified owner)

    Order arrived promptly and well packed. Still testing however very pleased with new binoculars at this stage. Very clear and feel good in the hand. Have attached binoculars to a harness and easy to use. Generally have problems with binoculars due to need to wear glasses however the adjustable click/ screw eye piece are very good and has made the use of these binoculars with glasses a big bonus. Would recommend purchase.

    I purchased my set of Avalon Binoculars, 10×42 recently replacing a pair that was stolen from me. This pair is Absolutely Brilliant for me to work with. I bought a larger set 20×50 only to find I could not hold them still enough. I contacted Avalon and they advised me that I should try the 10×42 and they would exchange them for me. I could not be happier with the service I received from this company. Delivery was very prompt. Anyone needing a good set of Binoculars for Bird Watching I would hightly recommend these to them.

  183. sally

    I purchased 2 of these binoculars for our family safari. Traveling as a family of 4 adults we shared the found the binoculars just perfect for our needs. They were very clear, light weight, easy to use and adjust. The binoculars were great for zooming in to see animals in the distance but we also used them to zoom in on specific parts of an animal if it was close. For example we found it fascinating to zoom in on a lion’s moth as it was eating and drinking etc. The binoculars were very quick for us all to adjust in these circumstances. These were our first ever binoculars and we are now big fans! Highly recommend them.
