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.

We are very happy with the harnesses. In the beginning, they were difficult to understand how they worked. One criticism though, it would have been nice not to have metal rings that clasp onto the binoculars because they mar the binocs.
RYO: We have rubber connection straps for those who are worried about scratching, but they also act as a swivel and keep your hardware running square to the harness cord

I love mine and had to buy a second one because I gave mine to my guide in Africa. Works perfect

We were birding the Deschutes River in Oregon when a guy we met on trail told me about this remarkable ultra-light binoculars harness, and where to buy one. Intrigued, I picked up a set and have been using them now for about a year, and I have yet to be disappointed. They are so comfortable I forget I have them on. The ultra-light harness provides total freedom of movement when using the binoculars, but little to no bouncing, swaying or movement when walking, even over varied terrain that requires stooping, reaching, and jumping. If I want to ensure no movement when crossing very rugged terrain, a quick pull on the adjuster tightens them up, and they are easy to loosen again with the push of a button on the adjustment mechanism. So adjustment is very quick and very easy. The small size makes storing them right in the binoc case easy, and they do not twist, turn, kink, or knot. I have worn them over heavy winter jackets and over a T-shirt and they work equally well, with the added benefit of not being hot or restrictive in summer months. I will never consider a return to the wide-strap style harness system as long as these are available. Wide straps too are bulky and uncomfortable. My wife was skeptical and stayed with her wide strap harness until finally giving in after continually seeing me slip into the ultra-light harness with ease, and without any twisting and knotting of straps. Her comment upon slipping into them was "Why didn't I switch sooner?" The RYO ultra-light system is by far the best binocular harness on the market.

I only have had this harness a few weeks now. My wife and I are avid bird watchers and move around for days, travelling to see birds. I love the strap but can't convince my wife to try hers on yet! She's stubborn. I do love the thin cords and the easy adjustment. I will have to see if there is any undue stretch before I move the rating up to 5 stars but I am almost there! A very well thought out and useful system.

This harness was designed for use with binoculars, but I bought it for use with my camera. It was easy to connect to the camera, and I like that it can be used four different ways. I bought a bright pink one; not my usual color choice, but I think it will make it really hard to mislay. (I actually ordered two; the other one, bright orange, is for my husband. He was skeptical, but once he saw it, he was convinced.)

I ordered these one weekend and they were delivered the following Monday ! Fast shipping !
I’ve only had these for a short time but these are the best thing since sliced bread. My son has used these for over a year and wouldn’t be without.

I've only worn these a couple of times for a couple of hours each. They held my 8-16 x 40 zoom binocular with no swinging or leaning out from my body. They are very comfortable, easy to adjust and weigh close to nothing! I didn't feel "strapped in" with them over my jacket. I gave them 5 stars even though I haven't worn them on a full day hunt or for a few days in a row, but I doubt I'll have any problems.

Just bought my 4th one, so all my bins permanently equipped. First one 3 years old, and looks like the most recent. Once you're used to them, it's hard to know you're wearing it. Couldn't go back to a lanyard now, and all that bouncing!
Time for a UK outlet, Rick!
