Bino Harness

I am looking for the right kind of bino harness in anticipation of a mule deer hunt in Wyoming.

I am leaning toward the Crooked Horn Bino System.

Does anyone know about this product?

Does it keep the bino's from bouncing as you walk, or does it just mainly take the weight off your neck?

Any information will be helpful.

 

Thanx

Bino Systems

These bino systems work great.  When they came out, I figured they were just another marketing widget to get some of my money.  A friend got some; I tried his 10X50's out for a day and thought they worked pretty well.  A couple of months later I won some at a RMEF dinner & put them on my 10X bino's.  I don't think I'll ever take them off now that I've used them for several seasons.  They can be a bit of a pain to get on and you have to decide whether to put them on under or over jackets but they are very comfortable, especially with heavy binoculars.  I've never noticed them bouncing and they do a great job of keeping the glasses close to the body when sneaking on game.  While my 7X35's don't weigh anything I going to put these on them just because they do such a good job of keeping the glasses close to the body.

don't own one yet

I've had a few chances to use those harnesses.  They do reduce the weight off your neck and make a days worth of glassing and hunting much better for you.  I still use the factory supplied strap that came with my Zeiss over ten years ago and it literally become a pain in the neck after a full days use, but I plan on getting that harness that you are considering.

Bino system

   I have the crooked horn bino system and I also bought the crooked horn cover to go with it, They work fantastic!!! My two children also use them. The cover works great to protect against dust, snow and rain.

The crooked horn system works

The crooked horn system works great and I have used them for many years.

But you should also check out the Badlands system.It completely protects them from the elements and distribures weight even better.

Nikon has a nice one out now also but I have not tried that one.
