Super value, a lot for your money

Lightweight, reasonably compact, with bright clear images. Only irritation (slight) was that Royal mail delivered a day late and order tracking was poor.

Great value binos

Terrific value for money. Great for bird watching and more general uses. Good quality binoculars at a reasonable price.


Nice chunky but lightweight binoculars, really easy to carry around and very compact. I used them for birdwatching and they are perfect lens covers are attached so they won't get lost and the quality of the strap and connectors is superior to my Zeiss binoculars. The case is a bit flimsy but I tend to leave it at home anyway so not a problem. Easy to adjust and focus, and super clear images. Very pleased.


Really pleased with them.

Brilliant value for money

Bought these to replace an old pair of 10 x 42 and was blown away by them. The superb optics give really good clarity and they handle superbly. Only niggle is the strap, it is adequate but they deserve better. Nevertheless they are fantastic value.
