    Does the S4 bino system keep your binos from bouncing when you run? I have the crooked horns and they bounce bad when I run and if I jumpe a log/stream they will bounce up and about take out my front teeth if Im not holding them (really annoying). I have the rangefinder tether system from S4, and have been debating this bino system to see if I can run without having to hold my binos.

    You should be able to run with them no problem. The lower straps seem to hold the binos tight to your body.

    Thanks everybody for your comments. I have thought of a stra p from the back of the harness to my pants. I will give it a try. It also probably wont be a factor if you had a jacket on. However, archery season for me starts in August so I will be wearing a t-shirt. Thanks again guys.

    What a shame, they didnt redo the actual Bino case as well though. While I feel like my S4 is the best bino strap Ive used, the upper portion of the flap just BARELY covers enough of the glasses. If they just made it an inch wider, I would be fully satisfied.

    I am using the size large with my 10x42 windrivers as well as my new 10x42 ELs.

    I just took the plastic lens cover that came with my binos and put it on the ring so it is always there to cover the eye pieces before going back into the harness. Problem solved for me!

    I have the old style s4 and was not to impressed at first,hard to adjust,some cheap components.It is somewhat uncomfortable when I'm lightly dressed,but not to bad when more layers are added.After hundreds of hours of wear,I would give it a thumbs down.I'm retired and live in great elk and mule deer right out my backdoor,so needless to say,my bino's are part of my attire almost daily.Sorry to say... I'm stuck with this mediocure bono system,but since s4 came out with their new system they did a good job....just my luck.

    Has anyone tried the new design yet after being disappointed with the original design?? I had the same problem with the original design you all had and after messing with the adjustments for a while and wearing it at the range, I was not happy with it and just put it back in the box and haven't used it since. Went back to the old crooked horn style.

    But the new design looks like it may have cured that riding up on your neck deal. I just don't want to go out and lay out $55 and find it still has problems. All the early reviews on the original made it sound like it was THE solution, but as it started getting used,especially in the early season the issues started surfacing. But it looks like S4 was listening and fixed it. So does anyone have the new one and are you happy with it?

    I've been debatingon buying these, I'd like to see reviews also. I'm still using the crooked horns, but wish there was something better.
