I have been away for a few days and there they were when I got home, the packing was good, although a little scruffy. I gave to unopened box to my wife and asked her to open it, I then told her how much I had spent. They actually looked brand new, no scratches at all, all the bits like strap, lens cloth etc. were in the box, my wife didn't believe they were ex demo, that's how good they were. I placed the order on Monday, I think they arrived today, Thursday. So if you want a top pair of binoculars for reasonable money I can thoroughly recommend these. I can supply pictures if anyone wants them.
Bought a pair, just waiting for them to be delivered, Cat 1 = new, Cat 2= Ex display, Cat 3 = Ex Demo, I asked and they can be returned should I not be satisfied with the quality etc. I will report back on quality when they arrive.
