Right, all Vortex 10x42s fit just fine in the standard Large.
You will like the KUIU. Night and day better than a badlands. I have had the badlands for many years and among the many problems, the top straps force the top to pull away from the body, the lid snaps closed after you pull out the binos forcing 2 hands to put them back in, and when belly crawling they will open and scoop dirt into the harness.
Anything will work when you're standing up. Belly crawl to get a shot at an Antelope and you'll soon find what doesn't work very well.
The key to the KUIU is snug side straps and pulling the lid tensioners tight enough to have the lid snap over the bino eye cups and stay there. When the harness is snugged up you won't have that "big lump" feeling you get with other harness's. Watch the kuiu instruction video, it will help a bunch.
The KUIU does not completely enclose the binos like a badlands. There is a section of the back, next to your body that is open. I can take a pic of mine if you need/want to see it.
