The RSPB Puffin® 8x42 binoculars are a fantastic choice of entry-level birdwatching binoculars. Striking the perfect balance between affordability and quality, making them an ideal option for both older children and adults who are keen to explore nature in greater detail. One of the standout features of the RSPB Puffin® binoculars is their remarkable build quality, which surpasses many other models available for a similar price.

Lightweight Design

At only 607g the Puffin® 8x42 make a comfortably lightweight choice for a full-size pair of binoculars. This is ideal for anyone who plans to spend extended periods observing wildlife, as it means the binoculars can be carried comfortably without causing strain or fatigue. The lightweight nature of these binoculars means that users are less likely to experience a stiff neck, even after a full day of birdwatching. This aspect is especially beneficial for older children and adults, who might find heavier models cumbersome and less enjoyable to use.

8x Magnification

The Puffin® binoculars are equipped with 8x magnification and a 42mm objective lens, providing a clear and detailed view of distant objects. This level of magnification is perfect for birdwatching, as it offers enough power to bring even the most distant birds into sharp focus without making the image too shaky or difficult to follow. The large objective lens allows for ample light to enter the binoculars, ensuring bright and vibrant images even in low-light conditions, such as during dawn or dusk when birds are most active.

Included Accessories

In addition to their excellent optical performance, the RSPB Puffin® 8x42 binoculars come with several accessories that enhance the overall user experience. Each pair is supplied with a sturdy case that protects the binoculars during transport and storage, ensuring they remain in top condition for many years. The included strap allows you to comfortably carry the binoculars around your neck making them readily accessible.

Highly recommend for keen amateurs such as my self. Good quality, straightforward to use for bird watching and wildlife. Very happy :)

Excellent value for money

Bought as a first pair of binoculars for my 12yo son. Absolutely perfect and beyond what I expected in terms of quality. Excellent value for money.

Excellent budget binoculars

I treated myself to a pair of these Puffin 8x32 binoculars as my husband is always hogging the Viking EDs I bought as a gift for him when we're out walking. I can see the difference in quality when I compare to his but they're the perfect size for me, lightweight and good value. Images are bright and clear, and the feel just as well made as the more expensive binoculars. Highly recommend these if you're looking for a decent binoculars but don't have a big budget!


I got into birdwatching after retirement with a cheap pair of binoculars from the middle of Lidl. Just upgraded to these 8x42 RSPB ones and so far I’m delighted! Very clear, easy to focus, and not too heavy. Highly recommend.

Very happy

These are my first binoculars for bird watching and so far I’m very happy with them. They offer a clear, easily adjustable focus and comfortable me to wear. They are slightly heavier than I was expecting but they feel durable and well made.
