  1. Frank Emerson

    Wonderful, very pleased with this purchase. Anxious to take them on our next cruise

  2. Mal

    Wish to say how pleased we are with the purchase of the 10 x 42 binoculars. They are beautifully made and provide a very sharp and bright image. Met all our expectations with very prompt free delivery. Thank you

  3. Patricia Fox

    I purchased these binoculars to replace a 20 year old pair after moving to my new home and discovering that I had two pair of Painted Buntings living behind the yard. Being able to see them so clearly was great. The binoculars are light and easy to use and I look forward to using them to discover other wildlife in the area.

  4. Jack from Illinois

    These great binoculars replaced the ones I bought in 1968 which still work fine but not as powerful as these. I looked at the craters on the moon last night after dark, and I could not believe what I saw! They are high quality, feel great in your hands and focus effortlessly. They arrived quickly and the packaging is amazing! Thank you for sending them to me so quickly and I feel the price is worthy of them. You get what you pay for!

  5. Stefan

    Very nice, got them for my wife for Christmas we just went out today and she was Very happy with the quality and ease of focusing

  6. Mary

    I received my binoculars. Nice packaging and nice binoculars. I haven’t tried putting the strap on, it looks complicated. I do have a problem with being able 2 get clear focused views. I was hoping I’d be able to use without my glasses. That’s not going to happen. I followed the instructions for setting up but it didn’t help. I just got more frustrated and have thought about returning them many times. I wear progressive lenses eye glasses. And my left eye is weaker than my right. Before making this purchase I read many of the reviews which most sounded good. One of the reviews said use UTUBE to help me get my binoculars focused better. So I did. To make an improvement on these binoculars please make the line that shows you where 0 is on the right lens easier to see. I had to use a magnifying glass to find it. Im still debating whether these are goin to work for me or not.

  7. Andrej Novak

    The best binoculars the money can buy. It is not Zeiss or Leica, but for the price they are the best.

  8. Ricardo Mena Jr

    These are the best purchase we’ve made on binoculars. Feel great, look great. And sharp imagery from lens.

  9. vlm1953

    Extremely happy with these awesome, AFFORDABLE, high quality binoculars, purchased to look at beautiful ocean views 15 miles straight out from our backyard, including gorgeous Catalina Island, and the huge ships off Long Beach!!! Love the removable protective lense caps on both ends, strong neck strap, and carry case. Very crisp and clear views, lightweight, and well designed features. All in all, quality and price of these fantastic binoculars can’t be beat! Highly recommend.

  10. Kenneth Hicks

    Beautiful and well made binoculars. I was amazed at the speed of delivery. They are easy and quick to focus and light weight. The fact that they are also waterproof was a great motivator in my purchase. My wife and I do a lot of lake kayaking and love checking out the different birds we see. A couple years ago I took an unexpected swim and the set of binoculars I was wearing took one with me. While they did eventually dry out it took a few weeks for them to do so. My only complaint with this set is that if you are trying to check out something closer than 15′ away you will be too close to use these binoculars.

  11. Suebell

    Love these binoculars ❣Amazing clarity, easy to adjust the focus, and lightweight. Plus an added bonus…I purchased the white one and they are beautiful to look at. I got many compliments.

  12. Inge parker

    We are very satisfied with our Avalon 10 42 . We would highly recommend it .

  13. D. Michalek

    I got these for Christmas. I had to immediately go outside and check them out. I was very impressed. I have 4 other binos from name brand companies but so far these are the clearest binos I now own. These will be my go to binos for watching all the critters around my property and adjacent land.

  14. JoAnn Potzler

    I live on a pond in Florida and it is such a thrill to watch all the wildlife up close. These were a gift from my brother. Cannot thank him enough for such a wonderful gift. Binoculars are so clear and light weight.

  15. Tim

    We live on a small lake that’s about 1/2 mile wide. On the opposite side from us is a large tree with a huge eagle nest. Our cheap $49.00 binoculars couldn’t bring the eagles into focus. Our new Avalon platinum binoculars are amazingly clear.
    If your like I was going back and forth about buying these, just buy them because you won’t be sorry.
    Best binoculars I’ve ever had.

  16. robert wilson

    Best binoculars ever,can’t believe how clear they are.

  17. George

    Best binoculars I have ever used. Clear and sharp. Arrived on time in perfect condition

  18. margaret wyman

    I love them. Ever since they arrived I’ve been enjoying sitting on my deck & checking out hummingbirds, goldfinches, bees, butterflies, etc. Now I know what I was missing.
    I recommend them to anyone interested in a mid-range pair of binoculars. The clarity is excellent, adjustments are precise, and they are light weight & easy to handle.
    The order arrived within the timeframe given.
    I am 100% satisfied with the purchase & price.

  19. Ileana G Holben

    It was my husband anniversary gift and he absolutely loves them, the clarity of the lens, the HD feature, lightweight and awesome look! So glad I researched it and found Avalon!

  20. Raymond Warden

    Received in perfect working order and I absolutely LOVE the Avalon Binoculars …. as well as the case… I had a Nikon pair ..same power but these are much clearer and I also love the attached lend caps … AWESOME

  21. Donielle Sauer

    First time birder here! These binoculars are nice looking, light, durable, and really fun to use for viewing wildlife. The letter the product came in explained how I didn’t need to use my glasses with the binoculars, which was really helpful for me. The service and packaging are great, delivery was quick and I can’t wait for my next birding venture!

  22. Stephanie Tomlinson

    Love the binoculars. Since my lasik surgery several years ago I had trouble finding binoculars that weren’t blurry. These are perfect, so glad I can watch our birds again.

  23. Denise Simms

    Finally! A fantastic pair of binoculars. I can’t tell you how many I have purchased that were not up to par for what I needed. These binoculars are great. Because I wear glasses I was hesitant in buying new binoculars but they are perfect for those who wear glasses. Clear, sharp view. Thank you for your video that explained what binoculars would be the best for what I needed them for. It really helped me to buy the best ones for me and I love them!!! Thanks again. Denise

  24. Glynis Brown

    I’m just going to say ‘ditto’ to all of the above good reviews
    I am so very pleased, my treat to me and worth every pound.
    And I cannot fault the company, very good packaging, quick delivery. If ever I need to, I would buy again from this company. If they do read this, Thank you very much, I’m very happy with my new classy binoculars 😎

    Thank you for a very speedy delivery , the Binoculars( platinum 10/42) are well made an d a delight to use , focus is spot on ! well done Avalon well priced to I might add thanks again.

  27. Chris

    Very quick and efficient delivery.
    The product itself is excellent: light weight for the size; easy to use; optically great – very sharp image near and far; good field of view and magnification. Ideal for general birding usage.

  28. Hope Thompson

    I have been wanting a good pair for several years, but was frustrated by my own lack of knowledge on how to buy. On one of my internet searches I came across Avalon Optics. I can not thank them enough for the explanation and how to pick out the pair that was right for me (bird watching). I absolutely love the pair I got. The view is crystal clear, and I found them easy to adjust for my vision. I really don’t have anything to compare them to, except a very old cheap pair that I have, but in my opinion these are fabulous! My search I’d done 🎉

  29. John Vandenberg

    This was my second purchase. First was a Christmas present for a friend. I enjoyed using hers and decided to buy a pair for myself. Excellent binoculars.

  30. Norman E Jalbert

    Bought them for my husband’s birthday. He likes them. Lightweight not bulky. He is very much so enjoying them. He is rating them perfect .

  31. David Grainger

    Magic; really clear images at all distances and I received them within 24 hours of ordering. What a bargain.

  32. Molly

    My binoculars arrived safely and I am thrilled! Perfect for backyard birding! And not too heavy for birding excursions…clarity is terrific, even for this bespectacled retired school mark! Can’t tell you how much these binoculars will enhance my enjoyment of a lifetime casual hobby. Thank you!!!

  33. Chris Smith

    Just received my Avalon 10×42 pro binoculars and I am highly impressed at there clarity, they feel great in my hands and very light, I am extremely happy with my purchase.

  34. Susan Hodges And Kirsten H.

    Excellent product! Lenses Allow a lot of light in and bring even tiny birds into sharp focus. Very pleased with these binoculars.

  35. M. Fleury

    Purchased these after reading reviews and I love them. Super sharp image and lightweight.

  36. Roy Harries

    What can I say to the reviews already said , Nothing it is all true , many thanks happy new year.

  37. Kim Duggan

    Love these binoculars! Easy to use, lightweight and super sharp focusing. Great for birding and wildlife spotting.

  38. Sydney Gordon

    Love these binoculars. They are the clearest I have ever had.

  39. Reyne’ M. Collette

    I ordered the 10×42 HD on Tues, Nov. 19th 11:30am ish…then emailed customer service in a panic, because I needed these binoculars by Friday (Nov 22nd). I’m leaving on vacation 5am Saturday morning from Michigan to South Dakota. To my utter surprise, not only did the team email me back within a few hours, but my package arrived the very next day (yesterday, Wed., Nov 20th) by the time I got home at 3pm!!!! I cannot tell you how much I love, love my binoculars! I’m a backyard bird bird watcher..lover. And I’m looking forward to stopping along our route to SD and using these wonderful binoculars. I still wish there was a phone number, where I could talk to a real person, however, their quick response to my emails, and super fast delivery, made up for it!!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!! So what are you waiting for? Treat yourself! You will be delighted you did! Thank you Avalon Team!!!!

  40. Marion L Massinger

    I absolutely love my new binoculars! They are light weight, and easy to use. They are perfect for bird watching !!! I’m Very happy with my purchase!

  41. Chris Newton

    Quick delivery, well packed . Wide strap, very comfortable and a good case. Lens caps attached and eye piece covers attach to strap, even better. But save the best till last. The optics are superb for the price, I am delighted with the clarity of the image in all light conditions. Thoroughly recommended, my sister is ordering a pair too.

  42. David Rough

    Binoculars arrived within a few days. Took them on my first trip last week and the 10×42 were perfect for my needs. The rubber protection caps are an excellent handy feature. Only complaint would be that the bag is just a tiny bit too tight. If it was just 5% larger then it would be the perfect fit.

  43. Don Smith

    Outstanding for the price. Accurately described and very competent in use (spectacle wearer). Unexpectedly good in low light conditions. A positive boon is the attached lens covers. A small but incredibly useful feature.

  44. Kathleen

    I bought these for my husband’s birthday. I’ve been wanting to buy him new binoculars for a long time but didn’t understand how the numbers worked. This website gave me great information. My husband loves the binoculars! They are very clear. Love them

  45. Neil

    Superb for the price. Got me and Mrs a set and over the moon with them. Love the drop down lense protection. Very clear in dull light . Would definitely recommend.

  46. Don Johnson

    My wife Bette loves attracting birds to our new and very large backyard. The binoculars were a surprise gift and she loves them.

  47. Joanna Edwards

    Took these “Tiger spottting” in India – they were Great to find Cats and Birds and see the wildlife in amazing detail even in lower light. Easy to use and really liked the ease of lens cap on/off in those dusty conditions. Recommend

  48. Steve Mitchell

    I bought these specifically for my holiday on safari in Namibia. I did a lot of research on the internet beforehand and came to the conclusion that 10 magnification with 42 object lens was as big as I should go, though I was advised by various people that 8 magnification would be better because they would be lighter and easier to manage.
    I was relieved to find that 10×42 were excellent and were not at all too heavy. My wife and I used them extensively and I am delighted with the purchase.

  49. Pauline

    Great quality, really pleased with this product. The binoculars are lightweight so great for my walking holiday.

  50. Steve Hanwell

    Great birthday present for my wife today. She says they are marvellous to use.

  51. Alex P M

    Great Value for money. Used them a few times for birdwatching. Love them!

  52. Rose

    I ordered the platinum binoculars as a surprise gift for a relative who enjoys birdwatching. She was excited when she opened the package, as this is her first pair of binoculars.
    She tried them on immediately, and looked through them to get a better view of the eastern blue bird perched on the suet cage. I think she will enjoy them for many years! Thank you for providing a beautiful product.

  53. Bev P

    Great binoculars at a very reasonable price. Really good build quality, sturdy and easy to remove lens caps. Packaged very well and arrived promptly. Great for viewing Norwegian fjords from the sea.

  54. Mal Odam

    Very good. Seem well made.
    Great speedy delivery.
    Lighter and more convenient than my 30+ year old 7X50’s!

  55. Kevin Lawlor

    Really pleased, fantastic clarity and easy to use

  56. H Grindley

    Excellent product. I use them for bird watching. They are very comfortable to use. I thought I might find them a bit heavy to hold, but the weight is no problem at all. I’m very pleased with my purchase.

  57. Christopher Maitland

    Light, compact and easy to focus, these binoculars represent excellent value.

  58. Yoka

    Great best ever

  59. Mark Eiler

    I recently purchased 10×42 Pro HD Platinum Binoculars and couldn’t be happier with my purchase. They are solid, well performing, lightweight, and stylish. I can’t say enough about them, except if you are in the market for binoculars for hunting or bird watching these are well worth the money!

  60. Krystalla Ward

    They are great. Looked at the full super snow moon last night and saw so many details! Am looking forward to using them on holiday soon

  61. Pamela

    Good? No! EXCELLENT PRODUCT! Thank you! 🙂
    Si algún latino lee esto, créanme que el producto merece la pena! Es de excelente calidad!

  62. Stephen Walls

    Excellent i’m Really happy with these binoculars

  63. Stephen Smith

    I received my binoculars the day following my order. As it was dark when they arrived I had to leave using them properly till the following morning.

    They are brilliant. They are very easy to set up (I did use a youtube video as the enclosed instructions assume you know about binoculars). Having set them up which takes seconds I am over the moon with them. They are light, have a lovely wide neck strap, they let in lots of light and the focusing is lovely and smooth. I can now see many more things that were just not possible to see through my old pair. I can use them either with glasses, contact lenses or the naked eye – yes they are THAT good!

    The ONLY slight complaint is that the neck strap was supplied frayed so it can’t be tucked neatly into the retainer. I think it will look messy in the near future.

    These are pretty much perfect as far as I am concerned.

    Thank you Avalon.

  64. Asif Kamal

    Very good. Amazing viewing and great optics.

  65. Paula

    Love these binoculars

  66. Lucy Goodman

    These are a great weight; light enough to not strain your arms as you hold them up for a long time, but heavy enough to feel like excellent quality. The platinum colour is like ‘stone’ colour and my mum is thrilled to bits with them. They fold in for people with eyes quite close together, and are all fully adjustable and easy to focus. Very happy with the quality. The website was very useful in describing what the numbers mean and taking confusion out of the purchase. I knew I was buying exactly what my mum wanted. Long may they last.

  67. Elmarie Gebler

    A great Christmas gift! Light and easy to use

  68. Gary

    Great lightweight binoculars that are easy to carry everywhere you go. Easy and smooth focusing. Work well in low light both early morning and dusk. Highly recommended professional style binoculars at a very reasonable price .

  69. Paul Egan

    Bought these as a gift as had already bought a pair a couple of years ago and so knew of the great quality and value. I managed to break my pair but they were replaced free of charge within days.Wonderful product

  70. Ron pichler

    Binoculars work awesome, love them!

  71. Christopher Peacher

    I have only used them a couple of times, but hey are really easy to focus and are light for the size, I will be using them at the coast soon and this will let me know how good they are.

  72. Rosemary

    These were a birthday present for my adult daughter who loves spending time in the bush observing wildlife. She tried them immediately and was thrilled with the clarity & ease of use. I was really impressed with the service, tracking the parcel and speedy delivery.

  73. Bev Sivyer

    My husband bought these binoculars for me. They are excellent, the only problem being the carry case is too small; it may have been meant for a smaller set of binoculars.

  74. Brian

    Bought as a present for my wife and am extremely impressed with them, my wife thinks they are the best thing ever…..
    Excellent quality and they actually feel well made also, very comfortable and easy to use.
    I may now use these as an excuse to get myself a pair now, or even the more expensive ones….

  75. Laurie

    Spot on – exactly what I was after for a cruise holiday.

  76. Rod Weston

    I just purchased these and they are perfect for what I need. My friends were impressed with the clarity.


    These binoculars are fine, and as good as I expected. The light weight and compact size make them more convenient than my old-type 8×30 binoculars. It is great that I can use them with my glasses and I am very satisfied with them.

  78. Suzanne Serfontein

    I bought the Bins for my partner as we are both bird watchers. He thinks they are amazing – as he wears glasses he loves the wind-out eyepiece and the clarity is outstanding.

  79. Ken Davis

    I purchased these binoculars as a gift for my wife. When she opened the package she immediately commenred on how nice these binoculars look and feel. She really enjoys using them for bird watching.

    She tried to use the belt loop provided on the case, but the unit is a little too big and heavy for comfort on the belt. She uses the provided neck strap instead and has no troubles with that.

    All in all, a really good product.

  80. wayne parr

    A great pair of binos….I took them to work on two days..Abit of fine adjustment and I was away..Used them all day without any problems and great to use with glasses on..Nice and light and the platinum colour makes a nice change..I will be putting my bino harness on them and heading into the hills…Wayne..

  81. Leonard (Len) Triplett

    Good value, good performance, well worth the price.

  82. Nelson usuga

    There good compact

  83. Laureen

    I bought these for my trip to Southern Africa. Carried them to 5 countries in 30 days. Perfect size and big big lens to watch animals and birds on safari. I couldn’t be more pleased.

  84. Rob Stansberry

    Love them. Very clear and quite sturdy. I need to see clearly at 100 yards. These glasses far exceed that need and expectation.

  85. Bryan Balmer

    very clear optics and great in low light. Very pleased with them

  86. Doug

    Very pleased. Great clarity, lightweight.

  87. Lex Dekoning

    Amazing clarity!! I bought for my wife’s birthday and we both love them.
    Awesome binos.

  88. Mike Edelstein

    Excellent and well worth the price. This company is great!

  89. Scott Moses

    We have been to Africa on safari for each of the past few years and one of the first things packed is the Avalon 10×42 binoculars… top quality optics,particularly in early morning or evening low light.. early to carry and lightweight but powerful these binoculars really enhance the Safari Eperience bringing the animals “up close and personal” … look no further for top quality at a reasonable price from a great Aussie company …

  90. Judy Peterson

    These binoculars are just what we needed. They let in lots of light, and separately adjust for each eye, have the option of using with or without glasses. The covers have straps to prevent loss.

  91. Terry Nadeau

    I just purchased the Avalon 10×42. We live right on the Bohemia river and the clarity is dynamite. We use it to get a nice close up of a pair of eagles. You can see all the way across the river onto the other bank which we could not do with our other binoculars. The size and weight make them easy to use. I would certainly recommend this product. Lastly, the product was delivered in a timely fashion with tracking information.

  92. Chris

    Very good service and delivery process. Delivery from Melbourne to Brisbane in only a few days. Tried them briefly and very impressed with quality and feel of the product.

  93. Steve Bell

    Great service, very prompt delivery. They appear to be exactly what I expected so far – haven’t fully given them a workout but look like they will definitely do the job. Value for money bino’s.

  94. Gerard Mcdoald

    Wasn’t impressed with infinity focus. Midrange was ok but found focus for that difficult with or without glasses.

  95. Sharon Mess

    I purchased these binoculars for my husband’s Christmas present. He is very happy with them and will find them useful when we go for leisurely walks and serious hill walking. Excellent service from Avalon Optics.
