Barr and Stroud Binos

Seonaid M., Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought these as a gift for my partner and he is totally delighted with them. The clarity is first class, they are lightweight and come with a sturdy case. I would definitely recommend Barr and Stroud. I did contact them prior to purchase to check a couple of things with them and found them knowledgeable and friendl. Very happy with 1, the service and 2, the product.

Staggering Quality

Ken Tait.. "DH88 Comet", Amazon
24 September 2013
  • Summary: I needed a new pair of binoculars to replace my old disintegrating Pentax ones. What I required was a good quality pair of general use binoculars that would allow me to do a spot of astronomy too. Barr and Stroud used to supply binoculars to the Royal Navy and for years were made in Scotland, they are now, like seemingly everything else, made in China. But that doesn't distract from the fact that these are superb binoculars.

Great start

  • Summary: Bought for birdwatching. It's a bit early to talk about durability etc, but these binoculars look good, are great value against the other makers out there and hey, I can see faraway stuff through them!

vision extra!

S. Young, Amazon
27 December 2012
  • Summary: I have used various types of binoculars over a period of fifty years for bird watching-these bins from Barr & Stroud are the best pair I have used. They are light to carry, easy and compact to use, give a crisp clear image in even low light conditions. Such is the image that it is better than binoculars that are 10x50 for everything up to medium distance work.The eye cups roll down perfectly to use if you are a spectacle wearer (I am) with little loss of field of view.

These are very good indeed

frund, Amazon
23 June 2012
  • Summary: The reviews I read before purchasing the 8x 42 series4 were helpful in making up my mind. They arrived with a good field hard case and straps all included. As a bird and nature watcher I need very good optics. These are excellent from 3m to infinity so the odd aeroplane can be spotted. There is no distortion the colours are very good they gather light well so looking at evening shots are first rate.

Perfect binoculars for birdwatching

Graham "Lombardo", Amazon
4 April 2011
  • Summary: Using these binoculars for the first time was a revelation. The optics are first rate, they're very easy to focus and the image is crisp and bright - PERFECT! The ruggedised design - waterproof and with a rubber armoured body to protect it from bumps - is just what you need for birdwatching in all weather conditions. They're not the lightest to carry around but the broad strap around the neck takes the strain.
