The Bino Harness, it’s one of the items people go back and fourth about. I can tell you I’ve used a few separate systems and may have found one I like. Gearak reached out to me last year and sent one over. I was thrilled when it arrived as I am with all new hunting gear. I had just spent a season with the Horn Hauler and was less than pleased with it. Although it did have a few more pockets it just wasn’t for me. It was bulky, it was a struggle to pull my Binoculars out and put them back in. I disliked the lid as it was a flap with a magnet that wasn’t very strong. I found that lots of debris got inside causing me to constantly clean the lenses.
Now back to the Gearak, I really like it. It’s a single compartment with a small place inside to keep a lens cloth. It’s elastic webbed pockets on each side held my calls, my chapstick, and my wind checker. The back zipper pocket was perfect for keeping my phone easily accessible when using OnX or Basemap.The harness is molded and has been great at keeping debris out. I have put this harness through the ringer. It’s been dragged Through the mud while belly crawling on a turkey stalk. It never left my chest for 10 days in the Mountains of Colorado. I know there are some other great harnesses on the market but this is one I really enjoy and will continue to use. The one downside is that it doesn’t have a place to keep my rangefinder but I have found another place for it. I guess that also helps keep it a more low profile harness.
