  1. Helen Fielding

    Really handy size and strong enough lense for what I want

  2. Maurice D

    Purchased for my wife. She is very pleased with them, commenting on the light weight without loss of quality.

  3. Steve H

    Just what I was looking for to be able to use when walking the dog. So often unable to see birds clearly but with these no problem. Nice and light with good clarity. Obviously with the small viewing lens you don’t get a wide perspective but pretty good for what I wanted.

  4. Viv Piesse-James

    .Brilliant for me, cannot hold anything heavy for long so these are lvely. Very clear and I am very impressed, swift delivery as well. Thanks

  5. Jennifer Elliott

    Fabulous. Bought these for my son ( aged 38) for Christmas as he has started getting interested in wildlife. He’s been enjoying them so much over the last couple of days, even just watching birds in the garden. Me too, I’ve had several sessions with them and I think they’re easy to use, sharp, and such a good size. Many thanks

  6. David

    Not strong enough

  7. Mrs Carol Andrews

    I ordered these for my Sister as a present for her Husband on his birthday in November. I have just found out he is extremely happy with the binoculars. They are excellent quality and great value for money and so easy to take out because of being compact. Ordering was easy and delivery was super fast.

  8. Mrs Hannan

    Very pleased with these lightweight and easy to use binoculars. Bought as a gift for husband who is happy with them and no doubt will have many hours of pleasure watching the birds!

  9. Rosemary Brown

    Love the lightness of the product, but rather disappointed that the rubber round the top of the lenses don’t roll down as stated in the description, which means I have to remove my glasses when wanting to use them.

  10. Julie

    Love the Binoculars nice size light to carry fits nice in pocket or bag delivery excellent came next day very happy.

  11. Sue Burnett

    Excellent set of bins! Lightweight, easy to use and perfect for quickly picking up and leaving the house with, they fit into your hand easily too.

  12. Dianne Cooper

    Excellent easy to carry & great results

  13. Alan Griffiths

    Bought for my wife, Daughter, and Mother-in-law. They are very impressed with the quality. lightweight, not heavy around necks, and fits well in pockets. Just one thing my mother-in-law wears glasses, now it says that you can roll the rubber back for people who wear glasses, but it dose not stay back, so i am going to use a scalpel to neatly cut around the rubber so she can then keep her glasses on. So if the manufacturer can improve on that, then they would be even more perfect.

  14. Martin

    Very pleased, these were far better than my free National Trust and old Sunagor Compact binoculars. It may be that age played a part in deterioration of performance of my older bins. However, very impressed with increased clarity and brightness of Avalon Discovery. Their compact form and light weight make them ideal for taking on walks.

  15. Kate Reeves

    Absolutely delighted with these binoculars. So compact and lightweight. Incredibly clear. Never go walking without them now. Perfect for my new found interest in birdwatching.

  16. Tricia Currie

    Bought as a present (not until end of January). Look super and amazed that they were delivered the day after ordering

  17. Noreen

    Love them,they do exactly what they say on the tin and they’re so light they would be no problem to take anywhere at all 👌

  18. Terry Fletcher

    Took the plunge and bought these binoculars. So glad I did, been lugging a large pair on holidays etc for years. These fit snuggly into a pocket and do a grand job of general sightseeing, bird watching etc. Also very lightweight so great when I get back to flying again. Very pleased with my purchase.

  19. Jonathan

    Bought these for my wife to closely look at all the various birds visiting our garden. Great quality and she is very happy with them. Will definitely buy from Avalon again. Thank you.

  20. Ian

    Bought as a present but tried them out. Very light and good clear magnification.

  21. Christine Wilson

    Purchased as a present for my son- in -law ,he’s wanting to introduce his young sons to bird watching, so these are perfect for the purpose , lightweight & compact, , Would have liked them to in clued lens covers !

  22. Dianne Mitchell

    My daughter is very happy with them; their small size means she can pop them in a pocket when she goes for a walk without having to take her big pair. The one problem has been getting the rubber eye pieces to fold down as she wears glasses. They keep popping back up. Otherwise great. Any suggestions?

  23. Martin

    Bought to replace old sixties pair , very impressed with clear vision and sharp focus , great !!

  24. Jane Thomas

    Fab binoculars I bought them for my husband for horse racing and now for my daughter for bird watching . Very pleased .

  25. Michael Brumby

    I bought these for my wife. I did originally buy the HD Pro as only the best is good enough for my wife, but they were to heavy for her. I returned them for a full refund and ordered these. Not only is the delivery very fast but the refund was in my bank equally fast.
    We are currently in France for 2 weeks and she is delighted with them.
    I was used to 10×50 in my Royal Navy days but even I’m impressed with these, I may drop a hint for the HD Pro’s…..!
    Highly recommend on all counts…..
    Thank you Avalon…

  26. Ariel

    These are great! They were a birthday gift for my husband as he’s getting into a bit of bird watching, they’re perfect for beginner bird watching, so lightweight and easy to use, but such a clear image and easy to adjust! Highly recommend! Also shipping was super fast.

  27. Annie

    I’m a photographer and my bag gets quite heavy with photographic gear. I need binoculars to scan the landscape, something quite powerful but small and lightweight These fit the bill beautifully.

  28. Stephen

    Great all round binoculars,small and easy to carry around

  29. Barbara Russell

    Just what I wanted to watch the bids in my garden. Also easily fit in my bag or pocket for when I am out walking
    Best thing I have bought in lockdown.

  30. Mengatohue

    Great binoculars. Delivered less than 24 hours after ordering.

  31. Lesley Smith

    Roll down eyecups do not stay down, not good if you wear glasses

  32. 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

  33. 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.
