Does anyone have a recommendation for a quality binocular harness that keeps the optics in place . I have an inexpensive pair that always seem to stretch . Not handy when ready to draw the bow ! Thanks....Finn

I have the Cabela's and it is nice. I have an OpTech and the straps are heavier / stronger than the Cabela's. OpTech makes camera straps and they have a good reputation.

I tried the Cabelas years ago. They are okay. Someone told me about Badlands and ,to be honest, they put the Cabelas to shame. If mine broke today I would order another tonight. Jmho

I haven't used the Badlands products because, to be honest, those covers look like they will be a major pain in the behind.

While I have no doubt the quality of manufacture is higher, what is the practical benefit? I'm not being a smart-butt, I'm asking that in a genuine manner.....what would one be getting of benefit for the higher price tag of the Badlands harnesses?

They are very easy to operate and stay snug to your chest. I like the way the product keeps my binos protected.
No offense if I was using thirty dollar glass I probably would not care, or if I was sitting all day probably overkill.
I have expensive glass and when I am walking or stalking I could not find another product that worked as well. Function or protection

I like my Nikon sling style binoculars strap. Goes over my shoulder and under opposite armpit. Binos stay under your arm and slide up when I wanna use them. I like it over a chest harness cause it keeps them farther out of the way when hunting. Just my preference though....

I have ones from Red Head that I have had for years but never compared them to others but they are still in good shape and do what they are suppose to do, and I don't have $30 dollar glass either! Ha Ha
I have the redheads also. Very comfortable and hold the binos tight to your chest but don't offer the protection form getting debris in the eyepieces. I'll probably look closer at the badlands. Been using their backpacks for several years and love em.
