I upgraded to the S4 Gear Lockdown X binocular harness after the elastic on an old harness (similar to this: Vortex Optics Binocular Harness Strap) wore out. I purchased the S4 harness for 3 reasons: It promised tension free viewing, it promised my binoculars would not bounce around, and it claimed to protect my lenses from rain and scratches.
- Most of the harness is made of substantial materials. The cords that connect to the binoculars are heavy duty tubular elastic. The shoulder straps and the back "X" are made of non-stretching materials and straps. However, the lower straps on the back "X" that connect to the bottom part of the binocular case are made of elastic (see cons).
- The binocular cords are not under tension while viewing. That's a nice change from the old elastic harness mentioned above.
- The binocular case--when it *does* hold the binoculars in place--does a very nice job of protecting the binocular lenses from the elements.
- The lower straps on the back "X" that connect to the bottom part of the binocular case are made of elastic.Read more ›
A birding friend suggested I get these. She raved about them. Several positives:
* The webbing on the back doesn't get twisted, a common problem with other harnesses.
* The straps hold the binoculars snug against your chest where they are unlikely to swing and hit something.
* The built in rain guards are great. Not only are they easier to deal with than the rubber ones that came with your bins, but they are always available and easy to put on.
* The cords holding the binoculars are nice and stretchy, easy to attach without taking up much room.
A couple of negatives:
* The price. These cost a lot more than other harnesses. If you go birding often, they are worth the expense.
* Using the binoculars for a quick look at the feeder is a bit clumsy. If you aren't wearing them, you probably want to unhook them from the harness to use them.
As a serious birder, I find these a great addition to the equipment list.
Problem: The bottom cover (about 5-3/4" in width) isn't wide enough to cover the objective lenses of my full-size binoculars (Bushnell 10x50 wide angle, about 8" in width at the objective lenses).
Problem: although the shoulder straps look like they might help to distribute the weight of the binoculars, they don't; the weight is all on the back of the neck, just like with a simple strap.
