In the last EBJ I noticed an odd thing. A staffer wearing his binos and rangefinder bandolier style. This is the second time I have seen this and it made me question as to why.
Clearly from the photos bow strings are not the reason why, as they drastic angle strings go away from ones body, they never would touch them anyway.
I personally have been using the elastic chest harnesses for years and love how they take the strain off your neck and shoulders.
I have only been able to guess, and that guess is to do with those guys that like to belly crawl to stalk game.
Other than that one reason, is there more to it than that? Please explain if you know.
