I have an old Primos bowhunter vest I use for elk hunting. If I need binos I add a Rick Young lightweight harness. The whole purpose of the vest is to tote essentials within easy consistent reach. Love the pockets but hate the extra layer and it's a hassle when layering up and down. Add a safety harness for whitetail season and it's even worse.

Do you think there is or will be soon a bino harness that has that amount of attached storage and is still workable for a bowhunter?

Alternatively, just build my binocs, range-finder, phone, windicator and calls into one compact device!

Bino harnesses are a pain in the butt when layering up once you get to the stand. I think the new KUIU pro harness has added pockets for a rangefinder and other things. Have you looked at those?

I agree with the comment that was made about large bio harness/chest packs. "sort of like strapping on a Volkswagen to your chest".

Look into Alaska Guide Creation Bino harnesses. Probably one of them would fit the bill of what you’re looking for. Can’t remember the name of the model that I had, but I got rid of it because it was too bulky for my tastes.

The new Sitka mountain harness I think it’s called is really really nice. I had the kuiu and this one is a lot more functional. Worth a look
