    Bino bivvy - who's got what

    Ok lads, what brand bino bivvys are you all using? I just use the leupold bino bra for my geovids but want something that will protect them better.

    Badlands
    Stoney Creek
    Sikta
    Kuiu

    any others?

    The Sitka is a real squeeze with my Geovids. They do go in but it's a bit of a shag around. R93 has the Badlands and he rated it.

    Have only seen the SC ones in person and they seem a bit budget for the price, but that's the sort of info I'm after.

    I thought they were a bit of a gimmick that we didn't need, until a Sitka set came up on here for a good price. I grabbed them and they fit my swaro 10x30's perfectly. I really rate bino bivvys now, keeps binos protected, out of the weather, stops them swinging around, etc. They're bloody good.

    The only thing that I find a little annoying is if I'm glassing from the truck its not as easy as just grabbing the binos, the bivvy is attached to them all the time. I could just make up a quick release clip though.

    You got my Sitka one that didn't fit the Zeiss.... I didn't read the fine print
    The Kuiu bivy has quick release clips on it.

    Alaska Guide Creations. Got more room in it than some of the others so you can fit quite alot of stuff it it. The guys that sells them is very very good to deal with too.

    I was thinking of getting something made that'll clip on to my daypack straps, webbing and anything else I'm wearing.
