    A very good pair of small compact bins. Just what we need.

    Bought as a gift so have not tried them myself. However, I’ve used binoculars for many years and the build quality seems very good, nice and compact and simple to use. Followed reviews before buying.

    Terrific bit of kit. Highly recommended for any use. I found the benefits of lightness and sharpness invaluable on safari. Don’t wait, just get as nothing else can complete at the price.

    I broke my binoculars a few of days before going to India so I needed a new pair quickly. I chose these because they are waterproof, smaller, and slightly lighter than my previous ones. The compact size is ideal for travelling and they aren’t too heavy. Vision is OK too. But they aren’t as well made or as clear as my previous Bushnell binoculars, even though they cost a bit more.

    I’m going to Kenya in October and I needed a pretty good pair of binoculars that were light weight but still good optics. These are impressive for the size. Perfect for my trip.

    Wow! I love my new binocs – my first good ones (I’ve only had fairly cheap ones before). I have just taken them on a bushwalk for the first time and done a bit of birdwatching and I couldn’t believe the clarity and detail and how close the birds looked. They are light to carry, fit nicely in your hand, quick to focus (once you have set them up initially) and overall lovely to use. The initial setting-up takes some time and is a bit tricky but once that’s done, they are a dream to use. I’m very happy with my purchase and look forward to years of happy birding.

    This size was an Excellent choice for me. Light enough to wear around my neck yet powerful for viewing Alaska sights, coastline and Glaciers from our cruise ship. I ordered the 10 X 42 Pro Binoculars for my husband. This allowed us to enjoy the benefit of our own pair. We did not need to constantly readjust for our individual viewing needs and we could observe the same sights as they were happening together. Terrific purchase for our memorable trip to Alaska. Will be an accessory for all future vacations.

    Purchased them for my partner as he had been wanting a pair for a while to take to the AFL.
    Went to the AFL with them in July for his 40th. Used them a bit but found them a little small for the face and neither of us have big faces.
    The focus on what we needed to look at was good but he and I spent most of the game just watching without them.
    Perhaps if we were a little closer to the game, they may have been more effective.

    I am not an avid bird watcher so don’t know how these binoculars compare with others. I just wanted something that was compact, lightweight, clear viewing and that didn’t cost an arm and a leg, and that’s what I got. I do wear glasses and found this a bit tricky. Kept bumping my glasses, but I don’t think the binocular manufacturers can do much more than they are already doing to accommodate this. For what I want them for they are good.

    Bud Demko

    I ordered these binoculars because I wanted a smaller size for short trips or just to leave in the car. Overall, the quality seems very good and when I compare them to our $800 full size binoculars, I would say that the optics are 90% and the light is also 90% of our other binoculars. Since I was not expecting perfection, I think these will fit the bill very nicely. I would recommend this product to others.

    As a newbie and mainly backyard birder, I don’t know much about binoculars, but these are terrific. A nice size, not too heavy, easily adjusted, sharp focus, and good field. I plan to use them for many activities. An excellent choice.

    Lightweight but substantial enough to hold steady and very responsive when focusing. I haven’t managed to get the strap attached properly but will probably get those instructions here. As has been mentioned in the reviews, the paper instructions weren’t very thorough. I like the depth of field and the sharpness of the lens. Excellent.

    Having ordered my binoculars on the 21st December, I received them on the 27th. Very efficient response given that it was the Christmas season. No drama to order and delivery was very quick. It is very early days but after limited use I have found them to be excellent. They are just what I wanted, compact, easy to use particularly when wearing glasses. These are great binoculars for general use.

    My initial impression of these glasses is that they are excellent. I have yet to use them ‘in the field'(for birding), but the image is very crisp and clear even at maximum range and easy to focus wearing spectacles. They are not quite as small as I’d expected (my fault in not thinking about the size of the lenses), but none the less they are light to carry and will still fit into a large pocket or the backpack.

    Bought to observe wildlife in nature and in danger – excellent for this purpose as the image is sharp and clear due to the amount of light entering the lens. These have a much wider objective lens than my previous compact binoculars and the difference is markedly improved. Highly recommend these for those wanting smaller and lightweight binoculars without sacrificing image quality.

    Purchased these for an African safari trip and they were perfect. Very clear and easy to adjust. Others on the trip lost their binocular lens caps in the bumpy van, but because these are attached there was no chance of losing them. Small size and weight was helpful for travelling in small charter planes where baggage allowance is an issue. Avalon provided quick delivery, reasonable price and great website advice. Very happy customer!

    Recently I was on a business trip and I stayed at a hotel that backed up to a nature reserve. There was a lot of wildlife and I’m a birdwatcher. I wished that I had taken my binoculars, but they’re heavy and I was travelling light with a small carry-on suitcase. I decided to purchase a second pair of binoculars for such trips, something small and light. I’m really happy with the Avalon 8×32 MINI HD binoculars. They’re compact, easy to hold, give a great image, and they’re waterproof and fog-proof. That’s a lot of great features for the affordable price.

    My Avalon 8×32 MINI HD Binoculars arrived this morning in perfect condition three days after I placed my order. I went out this afternoon bird watching and viewing nature, including some hares having fun in the fields. My enjoyment was enhanced by these marvellous binoculars. Excellent clarity brought things to life. I particularly liked the light weight which helped me hold the binoculars steadily without shaking and view comfortably for lengthy spells. Great value for money – an item of real quality.

      Hi Peter,

      Thank you for your kind review. Please note that the rubber lens covers on the Avalon 8×32 Mini HD binoculars are actually removable. They are attached to the body of the binoculars by small connectors which can quite easily be pulled out and inserted back in if needed. The eyepiece covers are also seperate from the binoculars so you can store them when the binoculars are in frequent use.

    Good for the price. I carry a heavy nature photography kit and the weight and size is ideal and they fit comfortably in the hand. Would prefer if front lens caps were not built in as they probably won’t last too long, probably becoming detached while bush bashing. Not sure how to remove them permanently. Better than my very old Nikon but as expected, not as sharp and clear as more expensive units. I would recommend these binoculars for photographic field work for people on a budget.
