customer reviews

“Small and light”

Very practical and light, very good stability and brightness, recommended for 3 people, very good after-sales service: problem following an accidental fall, replaced free of charge through “Nature et Découvertes” the store where I bought them

Jean Luc

“compact 8x25”

Very good binoculars, recommended by 3 friends who are very happy with them. Very good brightness, practical to always have with you given their compact size.
