Wife bought me a legit pair of binoculars for Xmas. Was wondering what type of chest harness I should look at. One that has the highest reviews is the Crooked Horn ones

Any suggestions?

Crooked Horn is what I use and have for several years.
No problems and adjusts easy, so you can adjust when you have on extra layers.

Crooked Horn and great for your camera, too.

All of the standard bino harnesses pretty much work the same. You need to decide if you want the harness to also include a case or some type of protective cover or if you just want the binoculars to hang freely without any covering.

That Crooked Horn bino harness is a standard harness. It looks pretty good. You can add the Crooked Horn Bino Shield to it if you want a covering for your binos.

Some non-standard harnesses to consider:

Badlands makes a bino harness without a case for an affordable price. I like the padded neck harness a lot:

Badlands Neck Strap

This one looks pretty nice, too, if you could find it on sale:

Horn Hunter Binocular Case

This one has a different design that looks interesting:

I use a Redhead binoc strap. It serves my purpose. It doesn't have wide shoulder straps but my binocs are compact and lightweight anyway. I think they're all basically the same design.

I'll give you a tip that serves me well. Maybe it's just me because I travel in and out of thick, brushy places but my binocs just hang on my chest with no cover. I average at least once a year losing an eye cup or lense cover off my binocs. Trying to look through them in that condition is not the same. I use mine daily during hunting season and don't have time to order a part and wait on it to come in. These parts I lose are relatively cheap so I always keep a spare in the truck. When and if I need them I already have them and when I use them I then order the part to replace my spare part. I learned this the hard way.

I wasn't trying to be funny when I say my pocket. I don't know how you guys do it...grunt call, rangefinder, binoculars, etc hanging around your neck or on straps. I cut the straps off my minolta binos and put them in the big pocket on the right side, put my cell phone in the breast pocket on vibrate, rangefinder in the left big pocket with the strap cut off it too...I do keep my grunt call around my neck and stuck under my vest.

During bow season I use my rangefinder to range certain spots from my tree and put it away...never have used binoculars during bowseason. In gun season I range a few spots and put the rangefinder back in my pocket. I do use my binoculars during gun season but only when hunting fields. In Tennessee is all of this really necessary?

Joedeer, I apologize for hijacking your post..probably should have just made a new thread...and in noway was I judging, just asking

I find binoculars extremely helpful for picking up details in the woods in low light conditions. I have a set of binos harness from Bass Pro Shop and they work well with my Leupold binocs.

I learned along time ago to use binocs "ALL" the time...even during archery season. You can pick out details in brush or low light conditions. On many occassions I've found deer standing or bedded just by glassing the surrounding area that I otherwise never would have seen.
