I have listed all of the positives - There are two other slight downsides to using this system abd it would appear that they are only going to come into play when bowhunting - because the deer (or other game) may be very close to you when you first see them...
It takes just a second longer to bring the binos to bear when you want to use them - with a harness (which is the minimum I think you would want to use - the neck strap is for the birds) you simply raise the binos, flip off the front and rear covers and you in business - with this case it is just a little slower however
What I gave noticed is that the objective lens covers on my binos have little thumb tabs on them and in most cases just pulling thrm out of the case opens these covers - so that was a hidden bonus!
The other thing is that while the case is softly made and opens and closes almost silently, there is the tiniest bit of noise involved on getting the binos out of the case
This would be a problem ONLY if your quarry were literally right on top of you
Hunting can be slow and frustrating if Mother Nature throws a warm hunting season at you. But things can take a drastic turn for the better with the onset of a cold snap. Whether you get snow or just a good, prolonged cold front, the hunting can improve on a dime. But cold whether can also make certain parts of the hunt more tedious. Here are some things to keep in mind when your prayers for cold weather finally pay off.
You can see a your quarry's breath when it is cold outside...
