"Kite Caiman - excellent value"

Alison Hill

These are great for anyone looking for a decent pair of bins at a good price. I have had these for a year now, having tried them out at the 2017 Birdfair. They have a good field of view and they're nice to hold. Mine weigh 740g on my kitchen scales, with strap and without lens covers and I've had no problem carrying them about all day, in all weathers. The case is handy for packing and there's a good cleaning cloth. I'm sure they will accompany me on many birdwatching trips in the future. I would recommend these for anyone who wants some serious bins without mortgaging the house.
