    Bino Protective Cover

    I have a chest harness and would like something to protect the my binos from dirt and debris. What does everyone like and dislike about theirs? I came across the CrossTac brand and they seemed like a compact/tite fit. I think I want something that actually covers the entire binocular.

    I have the harness by S4 Gear. I just got it for Christmas and haven't used it in the field yet but it fits really nice. I can't wait to try it out.

    I have the S4 harness, and like it, too, but I think I may alter it a little. It needs to cover the sides of the oculars (snow and twigs/dust got in quite often), and the elastic needs to be replaced with nylon straps, that won't bounce around.

    Thanks for the heads up BB. I will have to keep an eye on it.

    Horn Hunter system gets my vote, they totally cover your optics. The upper shoulder straps are non-elastic so you don't get stretch or bounce out of them. The lower straps are elastic and can be adjusted for a nice snug fit, when I lean over they hardly pull away from my chest. The system has a rear zippered compartment for small items such as lense cleaning supplies or other small items. There is also a compartment on the left side for misc. items, I use it for my windicator bottle. The iceing on the cake for me is the magnetic strips on the bottom and on the right side of the case for rangefinder attachment. The system comes with a vinyl rangefinder wrap with velcro closure and a magnet sewn in, it's really nice to be able to range something and just stick your rangefinder to the side of your bino case out of the way and not swinging around during a stalk.

    Worth checking out if your in the market. https://gohornhunter.com

    agreed with BB also! another suggestion put athletic tape on the cords that hook to your binos so that they dont slap against the plastic and make noise while moving fast paced makes quite a bit of noise but overall i love the S4 bino system

    Need a custom made harness, check out http://www.fhfgear.com/

    Been using mine for two years. Hung up my S4 after trying his harness. Just another option. He makes other items as well.

    I have one of Paul's bear spray holsters. It is awesome. I am looking at having him make a custom molle-compatible holster for the glock, and I might have to try out his bino case as well.

    Thanks, Stringmusic!

    The bear holster is very cool! Goes well with the Mystery Ranch packs.

    Love my Badlands bino case, don't have to worry about my binos getting dirt in them at all. Has plenty of pockets inside to put calls, and my licenses. Comes with a built in cleaning cloth. On the outside I can put my open reed calls in the straps on the side. Has a hydration pocket on the back also(cut mine out because I didn't like the bulk under my pack.
