My old bino harness is shot. the elastic is all stretched out and the clips are broke.

 

Whats new in the harness world? Mine where just Cablea's brand and Ive had them for year.

 

Whatcha got?


Opps, did I say you could shoot first... "Sorry Upper"

Ill just catch it in this coat and smack it with a hammer....

Can I get 13 beers to go Please...

 

That sucks when my brain automatically decodes ODP but STILL can't figure out what the hell upper is saying.......SCREWLOOSE

Look up FHF Gear, I'm using their bino and RF harness/holders. Quality stuff.

Big game hunter!

The FHF is the best design I've seen, but also the loudest. Not an issue for gun hunters and likely most bowhunting, but sit in a stand on a cold still morning and you might as well be shouting. If he made one in a quieter material, it would be near perfect.

Almost all of the bino buddies out there slip on me.  I bought a couple pair of Leica Bino harnesses on ebay, and they are by far the best quality out there.  They do not slip so you do not have to constantly re adjust them up.

 

I did own the badlands bino holders.  They were not for me.  I tried really hard to like them, but, it was just to much bulk and felt like I was carrying a parachute pack on my chest.

I always wear my binos under 1 layer of clothes espescially in cold weather.  It keeps them warm which helps to keep them from fogging up, also with a couple buttons or zip up they hold to your body and do not flop around.

I got the horn hunter last year and like it. The harness comes with an extra neck strap so when you don't need the whole chest pack thing you can hang them around your neck old school.
There is such a thing as a "dumb question" use the brain God gave you and try to figure it out you'll be a better person for it and you'll learn more

I got the HH also. I've used it twice and I'm not sure I like it yet. Quality, Protection, and Comfort is great, but having to pull the binos out of the case to use them is slower than I'm used to. Was using a regular harness before where the binos were fully exposed. I liked the speed of that where you can raise them up and drop them quickly. I do like the magnet mount for the RF, that is quick and easy to use.

I am of the mind set that if and when I need the bino's I need them NOW and with as little as movement as possible to access them. I just use the basic bino system that you can get at wally or cabelas or bass pro. After a few years the elastic will get tretched out and you will have to buy a new one (as you know) but, the binos are always ready to be used, not covered up and protected.

Yep

Check out Alaska Guide Creations... I have had them for a few years now and really like the fact that it keeps all of the dirt and debris off my optics.

I just got the horn hunters and really like them. I like that i can belly crawl and not ding or scratch my binos. I had crooked horn and they just banged around and couldnt get them to fit.

I've been happy purchasing the elastic chest harnesses, too bad they only last 1 or 2 seasons. I'm buying the Sitka bino harness soon.
