    S4 Gear Lockdown Optics deployment system

    http://s4gear.com/products/lockdown

    Quick review of the above Bino harness.

    There are only a few harnesses on the market that offer any sort of viable protection from impact, and keep your optics close to your body without flapping around while you walk.

    This is one if them



    Not too hard to work out what goes where, when you open the box.



    Binos fit up under a hardened flap, and once you fasten the shock cords to either side of the binos, they can hang in suspension, if you have a senior moment and let go of your glass



    System has plenty of adjustability through every strap on the rig, ensuring a form hugging fit ;)



    All in all, a well thought out system. Which offers plenty of front on impact protection, but does neglect some side protection from the elements.



    Time will tell how the elastic holds up, but if you're not constantly adjusting it, it's under very little static stress.

    Webbing over shoulders and back is nice and breathable.

    I'd probably go with something a little heavier like the FHF gear bino harness for hunting, but this will do for the 3D course, etc.

    Nice bit of kit. Shame about the ugly dude in the pics!
    My level of maturity depends on who I'm with.

    I'd be unstoppable if not for law enforcement & physics.

    Dont thank me for being nice to you.... Thank the doctors that prescribe the medication that keeps me from shaking the stupid out of you!!!!

    I've been using one for a little while now, best bino harness system I have used compared to the traditional style harnesses. Particularly good if you have to belly crawl or run (those that have used other systems will know what I mean).
