I recently bought the Zeiss Victory RF 8x56 T* Rangefinder Binoculars, and I was looking for a harness to make carrying them easier. I could not find a Zeiss branded one. The closest 'upgrade' I found was the Zeiss Air Cell Comfort Binoculars Strap (Zeiss Air Cell Comfort Binoculars Strap - Binocular Accessories at Binoculars).

What do you guys use? Is there a harness that will do the job reliably? (I do not fancy having my expensive new toy slip off some nasty cheap harness/strap)

Many thanks!

 

P.S: What about something  like that, or that maybe? Anyone has experience on these?

I have same binos and use a Bushnell harness. Quick connect buckles and the binos never move & always right where you need them. Bit longer to put on two straps but its on for the day. Highly recommend.

Got it on fleabay for £8.

i use the bushnell. from SGC they had it on special for £4.99

 

works ok. elasticated straps and small loops on the bino. watch them as one side came unstitched.

 

i wouldn't go back to the loop around the neck as it swings big time when your moving.

 

easy to set up and use, silent when stalking. what mores needed.

 

oh, flop over cover for when it rains, thats what i need now
