I switched from a strap to a harness last year.
I picked up an Alaska Guide Creations harness and haven’t looked back. It’s usually all I carry in the woods along with weapon.
Has a place for rangefinder, headlamp, and wind check. That’s about all I need most of the time.
I really like it when I use my climber because all my stuff is on my chest rather than having to strap a bag/pack somewhere.
It protects your glass very well, and keeps it out of the elements.
Know ya'll are going to think this is funny or cheap but here it goes , had a pair of heavy duty suspenders at the house one day a few years ago and looked at them and said i think i can make some bino straps with these and been using them ever since ,comfortable and secure.
I really like the rick young harness. It looks like it would be uncomfortable because of the thin diameter of the shock cord, but I hardly notice that it's there. Only problem is that when you're walking through brush, the binos are not protected. Otherwise, I really like it and it isn't crazy expensive.
Made with high quality Cordura, our harness is designed to be quiet, lightweight, low profile, modular, and easily operated with one hand. The updated features of the PRO-M harness include MOLLE on the underside of the pouch for attachment of modular accessories.
