    Keen to hear about this also. Quite keen on AGC Cub, but they look bulky. Any feedback?

    I use the same bino bag that the Duleys use on their TV show. I have no idea what the brand is, I brought it from a forum member who got in two.

    It works well for me.

    They work well, bought one for the old boy a while back

    Buy them here Bino Pouch

    Using the Alaskan guide creation bino holder at the moment, nice to have them close at hand and handy, not in your pack

    I normally use a badlands and find it very comfortable but its well worn on front and the magnets don't really hold it closed when bent over with vortex razors inside.
    So for the roar I'm using my older AGC pouch as the strap closure is robust.

    AGC, I have the top two on this page, the second one is great if you run a separate rangefinder as it fits in tthe fffront pocket. I'm running the top one more and more now though and have my rangefinder on a lanyard around d my neck.

    Just some Legend Ultra HD 10x42, @sambnz uses one the same as the second one for his Geovids and they fit fine (they are a large bino) the smaller one that I'm using can fit longer binos like Swaro EL or Trinovids etc but is at its limits with Geovids

    I have the duley style one and it's nice but the zip is noisy. Now I use an Alaska guide creations and find it excellent with pocket for rangefinder on the front.

    I have used a couple of different options and by far its the kuiu one,

    Most are way to big and almost have a daypack on the front of them.

    Other one i would look at is the solo hunter one

    It's taken me ages to try work out the best bino bivy system. I've tried the both TwinNeedle & Kuiu, currently still using both. (kuiu doesn't fit my Leica Geovid 10x42) Any chest style bino bivy can be a pain in the ass when needing to remove/add clothing, aswell as crawling on the ground is not ideal.

    I'm going to be going with the Duley version, I think it'll suit me best. Will keep the Kuiu for my partner to use with my Vortex 10x42.
