    +1 to the AGC, the front pocket fits a leica RF perfect, if you don't have ranging bino's this is the next best thing as very quick to access. Does feel bulky for a kickoff but you soon get used to it. Bino's are not attached to the bivy so if you need to pass them to a useless mate who forgot his bino's to take a gander at something it's straight forward. Down side is if you bend over and the lid is not closed the bino's will fall out, so you need to keep the bino strap on your neck at all times.

    With my binos bivy I can get away wih a slightly smaller pack. One thing to bare in mind is if you can take the harness off. Sitka I can't, agc I can means it's padding for binos when in truck and no straps getting caught in doors

    It works well for me.

    You mean the one that Willy dropped his Swaros out of a couple of seasons ago? Good one that.

    That's the one, they attach them with a bungee cord now. Problem solved

    You can buy an additional strap to attach binos. Has quick release buckles so you can still hand them to a mate!

    biggest problem with all of these systems is when you need to lie down in a hurry

    I've been through a few different ones... Found Kuiu the best of the bra type ones due to no bounce when walking or having to jump but have gone the duley way as well and find it the best. Quick and easy if you have to take or add layers of clothes on/off and no restriction when glassing ie the binos aren't connected to the strap etc.

    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.
    old style or new style Geovids, i use a Kuiu one and my old style geovids fit sweet as. Brilliant bit of kit.

    I've gone for the kuiu harness. Really like it. Comes in 2 sizes to suit different binos. I just bought the range finder case that attaches to the harness too

    I run this Badlands Bino-X magnetic pouch, has been great as I can keep a few bits in with it.

    Currently takes my Bushnell 10x42 Range finder binos, wind meter, spare batteries, ear plugs and will hold a few extra bullets on the outside.

    Upgrading to Approach camo so this'll be for sale when I get home in a few weeks.
