    As far as I am aware it is specific to the Swaros.. you could look at the Kuiu Bino harness.. by far the best I have had.. and I tried loads before finding this! the XL fits the Leica HD-Bs perfectly

    good little review here http://www.thewilltohunt.com/2014/03...-bino-harness/

    What you're looking for is: www.scopecoat.com.They make the best scope covers (really thick and effective, unlike the other stuff available), and also a very effective cover out of neoprene for binoculars. I've tried a few others, I now only have these.

    How are they for quick access with only one hand?

    A flap of chamois leather was the traditional way of keeping the eyepieces clear.

    Steiner make a neoprene cover for some of their binos - see the last photo in this review (http://www.bestbinocularsreviews.com...HawkPro-81.htm).

    I have one, but I don't know if it would fit any other binos, as it certainly doesn't fit my Swaros or Leicas!

    You're welcome to try the Steiner one if you like? It doesn't fit my Trinovids.

    Out of interest, what's wrong with the normal plastic rainguard?

    The larger of the Harkila version is designed for the new Geovids the older smaller version will fit the older type

    I think you will find that swarvi ones fit the leicas so there is a simple solution.

    Otherwise fit some Bushwakers or go on Ramsbottoms and order clear ones.
