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 got these for my Nikon Monarch 7 8x30 binos along with an accessory clip. It works great for this weight/size of bino. I keep my Spuds lense cleaner on the accessory clip. I'll be ordering a second set for an older set of Bushnell Custom Compacts. I really like the fact that I can wind them around the binos and store them in their original bag.

I have several pair of binoculars I use for hunting and hiking. I also have searched and bought many binocular harnesses and harness systems in pursuit of the perfect one. It took an adjustment in my thinking that I could actually spend less and get more with the simple solutions provided by the Rick Young system.

My husband is constantly hiking and taking pictures. Carrying a camera on his hikes with a regular camera strap or bag (or stuffed into his backpack) has been quite cumbersome. So he was happy to get this harness (from me, as a gift) and pleased that it is flexible to allow him to take pictures without fiddling. A great product.

The cord is very strong a has no problem holding up my Vortex 8x42. Not a problem in cold weather with a coat on but the thinner cord digs into your underarms in just a lightweight shirt. I do like the fact of the multiple ways that it can be worn.

I've tried several harnesses over the years but never really liked them. I've been hanging binoculars around my neck for 50+ years and didn't see any need to change. I was given this Rick Young harness to try about 12 months ago and I've been using it ever since. I don't often wear it as a harness but that's the beauty of it - it's versatile and can be used in several different ways. The main feature is the elastic cord which somehow takes the weight away and I no longer have any problem carrying my Swarovskis all day.

This is the best bono harness on the market.
It can be worn 3 ways , when worn over both shoulders they will hang perfect for an all day spotting and collapses into your pack easy for storage. I will buy more and gift them too!

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.
