Surpassed expectations.For most of my birdwatching, I go along with the "you get what you pay for" and have kitted myself accordingly. I did though want a pair of bins I could leave in a easy to reach location in the car.
I tried several bins at the RSPB shop at Dungeness, and got to the "I might as well try these" phase. I was mazed at their lightness and above all the clarity they gave. They are an excellent low cost binocular with barely discernible difference to many bins of the £100+ category. By Reg, on 28 Dec 2016
2 year reviewI've used these as my main binoculars for the last couple of years and haven't been disappointed. Many happy hours spent behind the lenses gazing out at a wide variety of birds.
These are bright, clear and stable. It's easy to find birds in the wide field of vision when you bring them up to your eyes. And they are relatively lightweight, at least for me. They never feel heavy or cumbersome while around your neck.
The strap could be better, and is beginning to fray. But other than that, these feel as good two years on as they did new. For less than £60, I've got an awful lot of enjoyment out of these. And many more years to come - I might get a bigger set but will keep these on me as 'all rounders'.
If, like me, you're new to birdwatching and binoculars, these won't let you down. By Tom, on 16 Dec 2016
Very happyThese are my first binoculars bought for birding and I am very happy with them. They offer a clear, easily adjustable focus and are portable and compact.
They are slightly heavier than I was expecting but this just reinforces the notion that they are durable and quality. The extras (case, cloth, caps etc are welcome, too)
I am now armed with these, and Simon Barnes 'bad birdwatcher' book, and the local Essex countryside is coming alive By James, on 7 Feb 2013
