Amazing!! I use mine for hours every day and absolutely love it. Super quick focus, amazing optics, and the distance it reaches is fantastic!! Would absolutely recommend to anyone!!

The monocular is fabulous! My vision is good in one eye, poor in the other, so focusing binoculars was always frustrating. I kept buying better and better pairs that I am giving away because I wont ever need them again. This monocular is a far better way to see!

I am truly amazed with the quality of this monocular. It is very easy to use. I use it mainly for birding in my yard, and it is excellent for birds close as well as at the back of the yard. I am looking forward to using it when I go hiking next summer.

I love binoculars, but, this 10 x 42 monocular takes the cake. Better than 35 power by lots, and very, very compact. Going toget a few more as gifts.

I only have limited vision and I needed something to watch my grandsons play sports. I was always asking “what position is he playing now….where is he!’? What a world of difference this has made. I put this on a monopod and have no trouble following the action. The images are clear and bright. Super easy to focus. I do wish this came with a lanyard and not a hand strap. For me this was a “Game Changer”……Thank you.

Partner has mismatched eyes, so chose 10×42 monocular for her. This proved difficult to hold steady for her, so I returned it- refund process fast and efficient, thanks. Instead I’ve just ordered 2 x mini 8×32 binoculars for her (one is a gift for someone else) which I anticipate will be well received. Thanks

I bought it because my binoculars cannot make a parfocal image because of the great discrepancy in vision between my two eyes. So I have been using only one side of the binoculars. I carry a lot of equipment for birding (camera with 70-300 mm lens, audio recorder and parabola) and like the monocular very much! One thing needed, though: I am using an old boot shoelace to suspend it around my neck, since no other means of suspension provided. Could you help?

I like it. Good price. Easy to use. Good image quality. Being tripod capable is a nice extra. The hand strap was a bit confusing but I figured it out. The ability to attach a neck strap would be a nice feature. Not sure how well the Platinum color will hold up to dirt over time. Lens caps fit fine. No complaints.

I haven’t used it extensively yet. I bought it for an upcoming trip. I have a fabulous pair of expensive binoculars that are great but very large . I was looking for light weight and compact and I got exactly that. I think I’m going to like them.

Beautiful piece of equipment.

Bought for my husband whose vision is limited. One eye better then the other. Enjoying finally seeing the birds in the woods surrounding our house. He loves it because is light, easy to carry a d easy to use.
Loving the monocular, I do a lot of hill walking and supervise groups for DofE. This is perfect for observing them form a distance, nice and bright and good magnification!

The product is fine, it is not what I thought it would be. I have a weak eye and thought that it would be easier for me to use a Monocular than binoculars, not so. It’s lightweight, easy to hold, but for me, it just doesn’t work.
I bought this for my daughter, an avid hiker. She is thrilled with it. She tested it out by looking at the Space Needle in the distance from her apartment balcony. She saw people in the observatory with hands on the glass! Loved how light it was and its viewing power! Also loved its sleekness!
Laura Morgan –
Great quality, everything present and correct!
Wendy Gilliard –
This isn’t a reflection on the quality of the product but I just could not get on just using one eye. Delivery and return was very quick and efficient. I have gone on to purchase binoculars which are more suitable for me.
Colin Anderson –
With a poor left eye, this is clearly the viewing answer. Going to give it a proper test on a trip to India shortly, but it seems to have more controllable and quicker focussing, together with good bright optics.
Miss Jane –
Absolutely thrilled. Desired Binos for a while, although with astigmatism in both eyes and differing problems found Binoculars slightly difficult, especially when needing to see ‘it’ NOW!!! Love the Monocular
Very happy with this monocular. Focussing is easy and I have a clear view with my glasses on or not wearing glasses. Better than my big binoculars.

Just received this monocular and I truely recommend it for general ocean use. I surf and now having this mono is really handy to check out waves,that are out the back of the breaking zone and sure does make it easy to spot good waves.So glad I got rid of the old 7 x25 bino,s.This new mono is light weight,easy to use and fits in my pocket…just so handy.Great product.

This was a replacement for a cheap monocular that had given us a taste for such a device. It has been a complete revelation. While the price seemed a bit high the ease of focussing and very bright image makes the Avalon very satisfying to use. Very happy to recommend.
This is a beautiful piece of equipment. I have not used a monocular before so I am still learning. I like it better than my binocular but would have liked some written information with it. It only came with a pamphlet on binocular instructions. I am still experimenting but I am impressed with its clarity. I look forward to mastering its use. Also I was impressed with the ease of ordering and the very quick delivery. Thank you.
