    I think they're great but only just a minute ago read another thread which mentioned they're restrictive when changing layers etc (which is true). I like them because on the hill I find it stops the bin's bouncing around on my chest when walking in and out. It also stops them dangling to the ground sooner than they otherwise might when crouching. I suppose it depends on what type of stalking you do.

    I've got a vortex one from Amazon( I think), only cost about 15, it doesn't have the wrap round caes that some have but definitely stops your binos swinging around. You could try Cheshire Lad (Rob) off here, he,s just started doing one.ATB Dom

    I have leica binos and they come with a broad stretchy strap that doesn't dig in, I use to use a bino harness but I found it a pain in the arse if you had to lie prone as you can not move the binoculars round to your back out of your way.

    Hiya Spoony

    I would say go for the Badlands...

    but they've put their prices up a h*ll of a lot due to "increased costs in obtaining the rare earth magnets" used in the closure mechanism; that said, if you're spendng serious coin on top-end glass such as Swaros, Leica, etc. then it's good insurance IMHO

    Even the cheapest ones are well worth having.

    If you want 'Gucci' though, these are pretty good:

    Would not be without them. Quick release or push out of way if you lying down. Much more comfortable with zero neck pain

    I have a Butler creek harness and have found it much better than the standard Leica strap,They stop your binoculars bouncing about, But like" Cumbrian 1" says they are a bit of a pain when you lie prone.
