    Excuse the model, sorry state of affairs...

    Added bonus of some of the Badlands bino bivys are that they have a mesh bag at the back designed to hold a hydration bladder.

    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.
    @hotsoup can you post a picture of the TwinNeedle one please. Would be nice to buy an NZ made one.
    @twinneedle price and specs?

    Is anyone out there using these - Sitka Bino Bivy ?

    Looks like an "older model" ??
    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.

    You can buy AGC online from the manufacturer. Quick and easy. Was for me anyway.

    I have an AGC the big selling point for me was the pocket in the front that fits a leica rangefinder perfectly, if you can't afford ranging bino's it's the next best thing for quick ranging. It has a document window in the back that takes the drop chart and it has two wee zip pockets in the side which I stick a couple of spare pills in. Handy if you empty out the mag and start scrabbling for spare pills to sort a woundy. It does bounce around a bit, but I'm used to it. It's available in plain brown so you don't have to look like a digicamo knob, and it looks a bit trendy, for an old fella but I got used to that too.....

    As a matter of fact I've found I can undo one of the buckles, swing it to the side and use it as a rear bag when shooting prone. Surprisingly effective.
