I need a new binocular harness/carry case for spot-and-stalk bowhunting hogs. I'm seeing models from $19.95 to $139.95. Usually you get what you pay for, but which is the right one? My binoculars are older Zeiss 10-40B. Thanks!

I’m partial to Marsupial. But you will get recommendations all over the board.

I really like my Adak. Covers my binos and LRF and I can one-hand open and close both.

I looked at a bunch and went with FHF. I really like it. Not cheap but very well made.

I got a marsupial as well and like it

They all differ and unfortunately you need to learn what they offer and what you want. I still prefer the original Kuiu design but that is just me.

I’ll 2nd the ADAK. I’ve used mine, along with the RF case, for 3 years. Zero issues.

Marsupial enclosed bino harness. Add on whichever pockets you want.

Agree on Adak , like RF case and its durable and quiet.

I like my Stone Galcier and range finder pouch. I don’t like harnesses that have pockets on the sides and bottom. They are too big and bulky for me so the SG fits for what I like.

I like the Rick Young version for $19.95.

Marsupial as well. 2 thumbs up

For me Rick young. I’m not a fan of the chest purse.

Marsupial Fully Enclosed, as well. Perfect fit, minimal bulk. I don’t understand this “bigger is better”, Beverly Hillbillies truck look protruding from one’s chest.

I was using an older FHF then moved to the Marsupial. It’s pretty nice but my swaro 10x40 are tuff to get out one handed.

I don't like the chest purse, either. Rick Young harness for me.

A lot of it depends on how you like the harness to go over your shoulders/around your ribs. At least that mattered ALOT to me. I hate the case up high on my chest. I like it low. You have to consider that aspect. Lots of the cases are very similar now with a soft magnet close, reverse opening and adding accessories.

I’m partial to the magnetic Marsupial.

I have gone full circle on bino harnesses and am back to the original Kuiu. I don’t mind the original Marsupial either. But I use the Rick Young out of a tree-stand and ground blind.

Almost like boots and packs. You want the fit to be perfect, as in the harness fitting the binos. Big and bulky doesn’t allow you to hold the bow as close to chest in a spot and stalk movement. The older Kuiu in a size Large , fit my binos nicely. When Kuiu came out with the Kuiu Pro, the size Large harness would accommodate the same binos and a sandwich. Changed to Marsupial.

I have an older AGC and it’s been great. I’d recommend. However, the Marsupial just looks good. Tailored and “high end”. If the made the no mag version in a large I’d order it in a minute.

Marsupial for typical western hunting, Rick Young for treestands and turkey blinds.

Kuiu Pro Harness for me. I have tried a few and like this one the best.

Another vote for Adak, form-fitting, not bulky, easy to access with one hand, checks all the boxes for me.

I like my Badlands chest harness.
