About Us

James and Jodi - ScopeUout owners

Welcome to ScopeUout!

Your New Zealand family owned online retailer of sports optics for bird and nature watching, hunting, astronomy and more. 

Hi! We’re James and Jodi the owners of ScopeUout. Born through our passion for the outdoors and our dream to offer an online platform that makes it easy to purchase sports optics online in New Zealand, we launched ScopeUout in 2014 and it has since gone from strength to strength. In late 2016 we also launched our Australian branch, so if you’re browsing from OZ then head over there

Great prices

We’re committed to offering competitive prices so that you can make big savings. We also have a Price Match Guarantee, so feel free to get in touch if you see the same product at a lower price elsewhere. 

Wide product selection

With sports optics available from over 30 brands in a range of price brackets to suit your budget, you’ll be sure to find something that meets your optical needs. We don't believe in parallel importing, so products from all of our brands are sourced from the official New Zealand distributor, and are covered by a New Zealand warranty.
