  1. Marza (verified owner)

    I love the mini . So much improvement from my old pair. I cannot afford to spend thousands . Also the lightness helps my chronic neck and spine pain.
    thank you.

  2. Murray (verified owner)

    love them! Great quality, very clear, sharp image, lightweight and I particularly love the adjustable eye cups.
    I am giving away my old 12×50’s as they are too heavy to carry around.
    I would recommend the Avalons.

  3. Peter John Moroney (verified owner)

    I find the 8×32 fantastic for my wife and myself, we keep them in the car for that unexpected sighting as we live in a rural area.I like how sharp, light weight and easy to use.

  4. David Collier (verified owner)

    Sharp, clear, good light gathering.
    Not as wide a field as my Japanese Sportsman HD 8X30 at 7.5 degrees, not to mention my Asahi Pentax 8X40 model 596 at 10 (TEN) degrees.

  5. Kerry Leslie (verified owner)

    Absolutely perfect size to cart around. I bought these to be able to watch my children and grandchildren play football & sports and use around our little seaside town for dolphins, whales, boats etc. My only fear was would they work for me because I wear glasses, pleasantly surprised because I don’t need my glasses with these after adjustments are made. So easy to adjust, not heavy to hold or carry and perfect size for my small hands. Highly recommend. 😊

  6. Sally Warmington (verified owner)

    I bought these binoculars for a trip coming up to Scotland including Shetland, and Norway. Planning to watch for wildlife including birds, seals and orcas. These binoculars are compact, look great and feel sturdy. I was glad to find they work well for me without my glasses and they were very easy to adjust, with lovely bright magnified images just looking around in my neighbourhood. I’m confident they will enhance my wildlife viewing experiences on my holiday!

  7. Mike Whitfield (verified owner)

    These are exactly what I wanted and their performance is great. Lightweight and comfortable to use, these mini HD ‘s perform wonderfully.

  8. Diane Valli (verified owner)

    Purchased mainly for watching sport and looking for whales. The first use was at the Margaret River World Surf League Pro. Fabulous!

  9. Ray (verified owner)

    Have not had a chance to use the binoculars as yet.

  10. Jenny Sykes (verified owner)

    I needed help choosing the right lightweight binoculars to take on a Kimberley cruise and the Avalon website explained everything. I am totally happy with my present to myself . The clarity is amazing and at a very reasonable price.

  11. Philip Fuller (verified owner)

    Take these bushwalking and to sporting events. Works well in both. They have sufficient magnification for a good look at a distant object and they also have a wide enough field of view for sporting events. Particularly like the ability they have to be used with glasses on and with glasses off. For me, they worked a little better with glasses off but not significantly. Easy to tuck under arm with the strap and walk around with them ready but not in the way. You could climb up a rock on bushwalk, for example. The front lens covers are easy and quick to use. As an improvement you might like to design some for the back lenses.

  12. Malcolm Ebb (verified owner)

    Already have the 10×42 which are fantastic. The 8×32 are even better as they are more compact and the clarity seems even better (if that is possible!)

  13. Kym (verified owner)

    I did a lot of research comparing binoculars these ones are great I use them for whale watching from the beach. Highly recommend.

  14. Michael Williams (verified owner)

    Just what I wanted, as someone who wears glasses these binoculars are easy to use , lightweight and very clear.

  15. Chris A (verified owner)

    Thrilled with these – lightweight and just as powerful as described. Can see birds clearly even though they are a long way away.
    Thank you, very happy.

  16. Mustafa (verified owner)

    Great purchase

  17. Michael Taylor (verified owner)

    Pleasantly surprised at the ease of refocusing quickly for different distances/ranges. The lightweight certainly enables stable viewing. Simply these are perfect for everyday use.

  18. Marja (verified owner)

    Really enjoying my “Christmas-present-to-self”. Took a while to get used to how to focus, but now enjoying watching my backyard visitors. In the one week I’ve had these binoculars, I’ve spied a pairs of red wattlebirds, Eastern spine bills, and blue fairy wrens, one scarlet honeyeater, and one female (or juvenile) satin bower bird! These are birds I’d never usually see in addition to our usual white and black cockatoos, crimson rosellas and kookaburras. Very,very happy with my purchase.

  19. Mathew (verified owner)

    Looks just like the pictures, feels very premium in hand. Compact and very easy to use. Comes with a neck strap and carry case which is handy for travelling. Bought this for sports watching, and will comment later after more detailed usage. Only just got this for the past week, arrived quickly.

  20. Christine Cameron (verified owner)

    even better than I expected! Easy to use, light to carry & excellent clarity of image. I use Swarovski binocs for birdwatching & am used to very high quality imaging. I wanted something more compact to use when travelling & these fit the bill perfectly. Fast delivery. Very highly recommended.

  21. Naomi (verified owner)

    Pretty fantastic! Exactly as described, delivery was also very prompt! Definitely recommend

  22. Bill (verified owner)

    Excellent product great service best I have ever owned do a lot of boating

  23. Janice Summers (verified owner)

    The Avalon platinum mini HD 8X32 binoculars are perfect for me. Light weight and compact design are the best for bird watching. Easy to carry with neck strap and fit so easily into coat pocket when on the move. The images are crystal clear and really sharp. A good buy – real value all round.

  24. Sandra O’Keefe (verified owner)

    I’ve only used them once but they are lovely binoculars.

  25. Barbara Smith

    Simple clear instructions for focusing the binoculars provided excellent results. Great for birdwatching , platypus watching etc. Compact size and light weight also appreciated

  26. Dave (verified owner)

    I’m glad I made the decision to upgrade from my 30 year old binoculars. The improvement in clarity is huge. Great size and quality.

  27. Robyn (verified owner)

    I ordered these as I didnt want anything to cumbersome and heavy. Nice and light and perfect in the back pack. Using them at present for bird watching and whale watching. Clear sharp image. Was able to watch some whales way out on the horizon and still get good clear viewing.

  28. KB (verified owner)

    Does exactly what the description says. Very happy with these binoculars for birdwatching

  29. Brenda Hempton

    Really pleased with my binoculars. I have a lot of neck pain and wanted something of good quality but light to carry. These are perfect – really sharp but light and comfortable . I like the platinum finish – reminds me of the quality of Canon L series lenses.

  30. Maggie Stephens

    Very pleased with these binoculars. I already had a higher magnification pair but seldom use them as so bulky. These are compact, easy to use due to good field of view and image is very clear and sharp. Highly recommended.

  31. Les

    Absolutely fantastic clarity, well worth the money!

  32. Stephen

    just wanted to let you know I received my 8×32 minis and I am absolutely thrilled with my purchase, they are perfect and just what I wanted.
    Very light in weight but feel very sturdy in the hand, Crystal clear images and for Mini Binoculars I was very impressed with their performance in low light conditions, the platinum finish looks great to.
    Delivery was very quick, price was spot on and product is of excellent quality.
    Thank you for your fantastic communication and service, very much appreciated.

  33. Amanda

    I purchased these binoculars for our trip to Maui in January. I really wanted a decent pair to use since we’d be there during whale season. After a lot of shopping around, I’m so happy I went with this pair. They made a HUGE difference in my whale watching experience. I used them daily to view whales breaching right off our lanai. Our condo had two other pairs available, the Bushnell H2O and another which brand I can’t recall. Neither pair came close to the Avalon 8X32. Even my husband who wasn’t sure we needed a pair in the first place, said it was well worth the money to have them.

  34. Rachael (verified owner)

    After a lot of research I purchased 2 pairs of Avalon 8×32 MINI HD Binoculars for presents for my parents to use for travelling and cruising. They absolutely love them and have given them very good reviews saying they are absolutely perfect. They are light weight and and really clear. Shipping was also super quick. Highly recommend!

  35. Janet (verified owner)

    Christmas gift for sporty grandsons. Enjoyed by all at Christmas break at the beach & attendance at Big Bash Cricket. Good report on clarity & distance views.

  36. Keith McPhee (verified owner)

    Compact binoculars with good optics; good for sports, bird-watching, bush-walking, etc.

  37. William Dyer

    Being an avid mountain bike rider these are the perfect addition to the rucksack to appreciate the wonderful surroundings. Great product and are exactly as described on-line.

  38. Bec (verified owner)

    Great little binoculars for travel and bushwalking.

  39. Hudson

    Exactly as advertised, excellent as a light weight binocular with all the extras like waterproofing you don’t normally get at this price.

  40. adrian rabone

    Now I’m not an expert on binoculars at all but what I got and what I was expecting were miles apart .. WOW! Was my first thought when trying them out , I can see detail on curtains in the window of a house I can barely see with my own eyes , .. easy to use and small enough to lose in my little rucksack… very pleased I bought them , well worth the money ..

  41. Ant

    Great Purchase. I’m really pleased with them. We’ve had them for a few months now and we have no complaints whatsoever. So much so that I’m actually bothering to write a review! Good size. They’re a big pocket full, so we tend to have to carry them, but not heavy, and great for the price.
    Good for spotting birds & Currently Whales.

  42. David Earl

    Great when out and about, I’m really pleased with them. Easy to use, an ideal size and excellent quality. Easy to order and fast delivery, I would recommend, 100%.
    Go for Platinum – very cool!

  43. Andy fryatt

    Travelled around costa rica with these..great binoculars and a great company to deal with

  44. Andrew Mcinnes

    Purchased for my girlfriend as a birthday gift. After a little disappointment that the package didn’t contain some expensive perfume or a ring she took to them like a wigeon to water. I was rather hoping she’d throw them back at me so I could keep them for myself but she can’t put them down and spotted a short eared owl first time out. They look great, are well balanced and have excellent clarity. Highly recommended (although perfume may have also been a good idea!)

  45. Peter O’Reilly (verified owner)

    These are excellent,sharp and light weight that I was looking for, could focus a little closer in rain forest situations. I am looking forward to taking overseas later in the year. Ideal for that

  46. Peter Trinder

    Given to my wife on her birthday today,she loves the look and feel of them and can’t wait to use them on our cruise to the Norwegian fjords.

  47. Shona Young (verified owner)

    Lovely little pair of binoculars….lightweight, compact and wonderful for bird watching. Am really happy with my purchase.

  48. Kate

    These 8×32 binocs work well for me, who due to neck issues, have to have lighter weight ….I am adjusting to the absence of eye cups which my previous pair had…the clarity is just fine for birdwatching!

  49. Peter (verified owner)

    Bought these and also a pair of the 10*42 s for our trip to Malaysian Borneo to check out orang-utans, monkeys and lots of birds. Worked a treat. There was a complimentary pair of similar spec but higher priced binoculars at one of our resorts and I used them a couple of times however preferred the Avalon. Great value.

  50. Trevor

    Very pleased with the quality and vision of these binoculars , lightweight and compact. Very easy to focus even with thick gloves on. Excellent for bird watching . I like the fact that the lense covers just drop down but stay attached to the binoculars so less chance of loosing them (as I have in the past)

  51. Julie Simon

    Hi I purchased your mini binoculars for my husband for xmas and I just wanted to say how happy he is with them. I knew nothing about binoculars until looking at your website for information.I am so glad I did. We will be using them on pur trip to Alasaka. Many thanks. Julie Simon

  52. Paul

    So far I’m very impressed, I bought them primarily for use at sea while boating along the Portuguese coast .as a small pair to keepin my pocket or around my neck instead of my main binoculars which are big and bulky. I have tested them on land and they seem very good so come March they will be tested in anger!!

  53. Johan

    Perfect for everyday use. Small and handy to take on a trip.

  54. Peter

    Very happy with these – much better than a pair of similarly priced 8 x 25 binoculars

  55. Janicee

    Great design, lightweight, easy to carry around, with great magnifying vision

  56. Paul kelsey

    Just used them on a short stroll alongside the Thames in Essex was able to identify avocets from probably 100 meters away and clearly see seals on the far side of the river .looking forward to using them on my upcoming trip to the Amazon .

  57. Dan

    Fantastic product for the price I am able to wear glasses and use the binoculars with great results if your want a lightweight high quality pair of binoculars these are the ones to buy!

  58. Stan Belcher

    Delivery was prompt.Larger than expected.Probably suit many purposes but not so good at the football where the play alters direction quickly.

  59. Andrew Hardwick

    I bought the 8×32 version but they developed double vision 1 year and 1 week old, I expected problems with the warranty but couldnt have been better served, I received a text regarding delivery due next day ( with no mention of what it was?) then a confirmation that they would be replaced with no need to return the faulty item- they took about one day from contact to delivery- EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE well done.
    I just hope they dont develop the same problem as they really are the perfect balance of size / weight and performance- it would be great if they were smaller and lighter but I believe NOTHING better at remotely near this price exists.

  60. Stephen

    Very impressed didn’t no what to expect for the price tried my friends 8x Nikon’s these are a lot better well worth the money

  61. Meggie

    My husband was thrilled to receive these as a gift for his upcoming trip to South Africa. I wanted something lightweight that was easy to travel with, but powerful enough to spot all the great wildlife. These fit the bill, and at a great price point! He was quite impressed by my research. ? Fast shipping, too – I couldn’t be happier with this purchase.
