There are several suspension systems on the market today for binoculars and range finders but none like this one. Watch the video provided and compare. The idea of having your bino's readily accessible is a good one, but traditional suspension systems are bulky and they stretch out and sag. Our USA mfg shock cord does not get soft and lose its elastic strength or memory. The shock cord grips or hugs your body and transfers the weight of your binoculars equally around your shoulder and chest without digging into your skin or body. Unlike the wide flat strap harnesses our round cord will not vibrate or flutter in the wind. After 7 years of field testing and now thousands of happy customers I think it's safe to say that we have reinvented the bino harness from the ground up. Fast single point adjustment allows you to quickly fit the harness to your change of clothing. Never again will your binos be down at your belt line.

I use binoculars every day and have done for 40 years. Have tried every conceivable strap and harness known to modern man. Nothing really worked and functioned like I had hoped. Then found R.Young harness on line. It was inexpensive and the 3 minute You-tube demo really prompted me to try it. Well, now Im a raving fan of this simple, effective and practical binocular harness. It works like a charm and serves the purpose admirably.

This has been the best harness i have used. Very simplistic, functional, and love the quick connects. Especially for the range find or other outdoor accessory! I think Rick has hit a home run with this product ! I bow hunt Elk , Deer, and Hogs , minimal movement is a must, his harness keeps the bino tight to the chess and requires little one hand movement to bring up for looking. Same with rangefinder.

These are very good products. This is not my first harness. I like them so well I bought an extra set in case I get more binoculars.

I bought one last summer, as a try-out, having seen guys using harnesses in the Caucasus Mts. I've used conventional straps all my life, but no more.... Whatever you may think, there is no cut or pinch at all from the shock cord. They're discreet, easy to pack and after a couple of weeks, completely natural (to the point i realised i still was wearing my bins an hour after getting home!)
You can also move fast without the optics banging on your chest, cross ditches without having to support your bins, climb over gates and stiles with both hands free.
Very comfortable, very easy to wear and highly recommended.

I have been using a strap style binocular harness for a few years. It's been far better for my neck than using the supplied strap.
However, I have to say that in my brief experience using this product, it is far more comfortable and easier to adjust than the strap style. It also does not bounce around as much. I haven't experimented with the different styles of wearing it, but I'm looking forward to doing so particularly as I often carry a camera (DSLR + 400mm) with me when birding.
I bought the harness to use with a smaller pair of 8X32 binoculars, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that they worked equally well with my heavier 10x42 binoculars as well.
The only thing left to wonder is if the elastic will last the distance, but it is quite thick and heavy duty as described, so no reason to think it won't. Only time will tell.

I was already using a similar harness that used sturdy cord and metal fixtures. When on a birding trip recently, I noticed one of the participants using this product. I bought it only recently and have worn it only two days in the field thus far. But I can tell it is a winner. The harness is very comfortable and well engineered. I can tell it will last.

This is the best harness-style bino support I've found, much easier in use than the strap-style harnesses. The ability to quickly adjust length to suit the bulk of different clothing is convenient, but I find the long 'ponytail' of surplus shock cord when I'm wearing a T-shirt can get caught up in thick cover. Can't have it both ways I guess.
Side note from Rick- Watch You Tube video on how to shorten your harness. See it on RYO site

This is the best and most comfortable harness I've ever used.It's very easy to put on and adjust.

This harness is the best one I have tried! I love how the binos just glide right up the cord and I am not constantly fighting with the straps (like I was with my old harnesses)! The binos stayed secure to my chest and the small cord was way more comfortable than the thick straps of other harnesses and didn't put pressure on my neck. I would recommend this harness to other hunters any day!
