    Bino Harness - Twin Needle??

    I while back Twin Needle were going to be making a bino harness - I was holding off buying one until they were in production. I see there is no longer any mention of them on their website. Anyone know what happened?

    Failing the twin needle one being available, is the Kuiu harness worth the $$'s.

    I will be in at Twin needle this week to pick an order from them.

    Will enquire about the bino harness, take my swarovski 10x40s to try and have a look.

    And report back with images if able

    I have had a pair of Zeiss 10X50's hanging off a set of these for a decade.
    Still going strong and for $20 US can you beat it?

    they told me about 2 mths ago they weren't going to make them, so I bought an AGC.
    I have a badlands for my spare binos, the magnets don't really keep it closed if bush bashing and you lean foward.

    Ok guys.

    I went in to pick up my gear today and had a good look at their prototype bino harness.
    It had been in the field for a year being tested and had slightly dropped off their radar.
    Bloody nicely made.
    Significantly better than anything else I have ever seen.
    They were intending doing a little bit of re designing and its scheduled for a production run during September.
    They are intending having a couple of them at the Sika show for pre orders.

    I have placed a pre order with them so that they will advise when these will come available and I will update this post and get some images on it.
    No idea about the price sorry and they weren't keen on me photographing it as it was pre production and still covered in dirt etc.

    But it would not be stupid if you are placing an order to indicate that you are a " nzhuntingandshooting" forum member

    Thats what I was sort of thinking.

    Im happy to try and pull it together with the guy at Twin Needle.
    Next week I will go in with all my binos 2x swarovski and 1 x zeiss and try them all for size and give you all an idea of the sizing etc.
    Maybe get some images, information and at least an idea on the price range.

    Message me and I will keep a list of potential purchasers to keep updated with progress and discounts available dependent on numbers interested.

    I was in Twin Needle Wednesday and tried the new production model Bino harness case for size with a pair of Swarovski 10x42 EL Range.
    Nice fit and easy to use the closure and flap.
    Looks like they are on track for the Sika Show.
