Quality bins at a fair price
I bought these at an Optics weekend at the RSPB shop in Lytham St Annes in February 2023, after trying several different pairs. The HDX impressed me with their brightness and clarity. For comparison, I tried a pair of Svarovski binoculars and, although the latter were marginally brighter, they were not worth the £1,000 difference in price. After nearly a year of use, I am pleased with them.
One minor quibble: the supplied individual objective lens caps are easily lost after removal. At this price, the RSPB should be able to supply lens caps with rubber rings that keep them attached to the lens barrels. I bought a suitable pair online for £4.50, so it wouldn't cost much for the RSPB to include them.

HDX REWIND
Bought some of these Secondhand. They were so comfortable to use . Unfortunately I left them in a hide in Rutland. I’m so impressed with them having tried out similar priced Items that I am about to purchase another pair

HDX 8x42 Binoculars - Missing Eyepiece cap
I purchased my binoculars some three years ago from the RSPB shop at Vane Farm, Loch Leven. The assistance from the staff was excellent and I was able to test all the binoculars on display. I was prepared to pay for the most expensive of the binoculars however for performance and cost I thought the HDX's offered the best value for money without a noticeable sacrifice on performance. In common with other reviewers I find case design over complicated and a fiddle to use. I also own Olympus 8x42 binoculars and their case has a simple top flap and its easy to use. While I am very satisfied with use and performance of the HDX's I do have one minor problem being the adhesive to the eyepiece cap. I have had to re-glue the cap which became loose. On the most recent instance somehow I have lost the cap. This is not through misuse as I always carefully store the binoculars in the bag and case. Would you please advise me how I can obtain a replacement cap? Thanks
