Get ready for summer

With the evenings growing brighter and longer, now is the time to make sure you're prepared for the arrival of Kiwi summer. 

Do you have all the equipment you need for your summer adventures hiking in the bush, watching the surf at the beach, animal spotting in the hills or simply enjoying the views from your deck in the sun? 

If not, then it's high time you started thinking about the sports optics you may need to fully enjoy the summer activities and get up close with the world around you. 


Binoculars are a great option to have on hand for any out door adventure. A standard 10x42 or 8x42 model are great for bird or animal watching. Alternatively, if you want something more compact for general enjoyment of views or animal spotting on your next tramp then more compact 25mm or 32mm binoculars are a great option. 

Spotting scopes

If you're planning on doing more static observing and weight and size isn't an issue then a spotting scope offers much more magnification so you can see further. Spotting scopes are also a great option for enjoying views from the home.
