Very impressed!
31 July 2019  | 

I'm so pleased with this choice of "bins". When it became necessary to replace my old but much loved RSPB 8x32s due to damage, I was influenced by a review in BTO news, also by owning an Opticron MM scope bought some 9 years ago. The Travellers fulfill everything I wanted and more. Lightweight, clear and bright, plus the close focus is excellent. They are "comfortable" to use. How optics have progressed since purchasing my old ones!
Superb prompt delivery from The Birders Store - many thanks.

Impressive Optical Quality and Size!
19 May 2017  | 

The optical quality is seriously impressive - it's a close match for my Zeiss binos, but with a much wider field of view, and a much smaller, lighter body. Resolution, colour neutrality and image brightness are all top notch. Contrast is good, but not outstanding. Optical quality is maintained across a very large part of the field of view - the sweet spot is very large. Eye relief is generous and eye positioning not critical. To have this level of optical quality in a compact, lightweight bin is fantastic. After a month of solid use, this is definitely my favourite pair of bins - I use it more than my Zeiss 8x42's! Minor gripes - the fit and finish of the rubber armouring is a bit 'lumpy' and loose on my model - the eyepiece is so large that I occasionally get crescent glare at the bottom edges in bright conditions - the neck strap and rainguard are a bit low-rent for such a seriously good binocular. Overall, Opticron have a winner on their hands with this design though! I might even be tempted by the 10x32's!

An "alpha" view for a sensible price.
29 April 2017  | 

Very pleased, and surprised, by such an outstandingly clear, crisp, bitingly sharp view.
Has to be the best compact sized carry everywhere binocular I have seen.

Lovely huge wide view. Fingers wrap nicely around the slender barrels. Perfect weight.

I'm a +6.5 glasses wearer and comfortably see the whole view with one click out of the eye shields.
The lens coatings are wonderful, they add a brilliant vibrancy to a dull scene.
I can't get over how bright they are, and that's coming from a previous Swarovski 7x42 SLC neu.

Highly recommended.
