Hi Guys,
well, I'm an unashamed gear freak....and when I heard about this small company, I contacted the owner, the grand pubar, the accounts department and the manufacturing guy (all the same person) to get one of his kits.

The Binocular harness has recieved A LOT of mention on the US archery forums, but no one ever really does anything other than mention it.

So, here you go - for those curious.

Opening up the box, here you get the idea in a nutshell, very little open space, double stiching throughout, and the addition of compartments that are only given away by heavy duty zippers, or the odd angular stiched compartment

The Side pockets are elastisiced netting with very heavy stitching, a real handy addition and can fit a lot more than what it looks like.
This panel is floating on heavy duty elastic braces, meaning depending on the size of your binoculars, it allows for thickness variations, but ensures a secure fit of the bino's.

Another great pocket idea, out of the way - for a cloth, objective caps...etc

Heavy duty double padding for the flap ensures quiet secure protection for the top of your binos - this extends to the sides for maximum coverage.

You would feel very happy putting hundreds of dollars, if not thousands of dollars worth of Binos in here - all round protetction.

Breathable mesh panel to prevent hot spots

This here is a great addition, the straps that attach to your binos are supplied with clips AND sections which can thread through the existing binocular loops - no cheap bag of zip ties and key rings here!

The Kriptek Highland camp Binocular straps - a great pattern.

Heres the back area of the webbing. All stitching has been secured with some sort of stitch pattern i'm unfamilar with...but it works, and thats whats important.

All high quality fittings

ALL Components are US made, I appreciate the patriotism, and what it represents in the product

This is not a paid endorsement, just my enthusiastic opinions on what I consider to be a high quality bit of gear.

Unsure if I can put his website here, as he's not a sponsor - but the Google will lead the way, and Paul Lewis will be happy to help you out wherever he can.

So, some bright spark (Carlos) pointed out he couldn't see any Binoculars in the pics.

So, here we go.
