    Just a suggestion.

    Be also good when photos are ready to see the protection provided around the zippers. Pulling swaro EL bino in and out constantly past the zippers could do a bit of damage

    They are magnetic. I had a play with one at Sika Show, nice piece of kit. I'm tempted.

    The amount of different brands and models I've gone through... sheesh. I always sell them if I'm not happy with them.

    Want to write a list of what you've had and why it didn't pass?
    Always been happy as with my kuiu, comfortable and easy to get at my bino quickly.

    Kuiu (XL size) - Didn't fit my Leica HD-R 10x42, otherwise a good piece of kit.

    Original Twin Needle bino harness - Obviously they didn't stick with this model, but I found it was a bit bulky in the strapping etc, plastic buckles too big and too many parts that needed to be clicked together. Looks like they may have improved this. Magnetic strap was good though. I don't think it fit my Leicas. Like I said, it was their early model.

    NZ Outdoor Gear Bino Bag (greg duley one) - Found this wasn't that practical accessing the bag each time I wanted to use the binos. Wasn't comfortable when walking long distance and having it hanging it over your shoulder, found it awkward.

    Mossy Oak Bino Strap - This is what I'm currently using, this makes the bino completely exposed and doesn't offer any cover / protection. However it is very easy to put on and off. It also keeps tight to the chest. I'm happy with it but when it comes to rain / protecting lens it may have issues.

    Just from my experience, I can be pretty fussy when it comes to kit @Nibblet

    Yeah a few of the larger bino are a tight fit for them.

    Nothing wrong with being fussy, your money your purchase, may as well be happy
