    I use the NZ Outdoor Gear bino case, as used by Greg Duley. I had one especially measured up to fit my Geovid HD-R 10x42. Highly recommend

    +1 for Badlands, with the magnetic closure.

    A mate got a Sitka one of Trademe, against my advise, and the Geovids wouldn't fit in them.

    @chainsaw I have the magnetic ones for my hg 10-43's and work great. Don't open when I have fallen. But on the hdb's would be a little tight so use the zipper model for them to be sure.

    Bumping this thread. Would love some more up to date information on this. After a chest harness that services the binos. Any more recomendations? How are those who previously commented finding there bags after a few years use?

    I had Alaska Guide Creations for a few years, couple different models, they were brilliant and the extra storage on them is great. Have been running Kuiu for a while now, its ok but I prefer the AGC as its fully enclosed, the Kuiu is not, always find grass and twigs and those annoying little mountain beech leaves in the pouch and the straps on the kuiu connect to the binos themselves which is a pain in the ass if you want to pass your binos to someone for a look you have to unclip them, I have also had the straps come off the binos a couple times despite having secured them as per instructions and strap tail retainers in place etc. Not sure what size mine is but fits 10x42 swaro EL's snuggly.
    Will go back to a AGC at some stage.
