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/review-kuiu-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?

Thanks everyone. Already have a harness so i just need a lens protectir to keep the rain off. I once saw a guy with a leather one. It was just like a flip,over piece if leather. Wihed i had asked him where he got it

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/Steiner10x42SkyHawkPro-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?

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.
