Bino cases and packs
« on: September 01, 2017, 08:50:18 PM »
I have a Badlands sacrifice pack, I also have a harness for my binoculars.
The issue is I have shoulder straps for both. I'd rather just have something that hooks to my pack to hold the bino's. Have my pack over my straps for the bino's isn't all that comfortable.
What does everyone else do?
Does Badlands make something like this?
All I see is the same type of harness I have.

I've never seen a bino harness that clips onto your backpack. Sounds like a good idea and probably a lot more comfortable than wearing a harness under a pack.

Has anyone seen anything like this?

Op/tech USA you can find them on Amazon or eBay. I use a crooked horn magnum I wear under my pack straps doesn't bother me.

Now then, get your equipment—your quiver and bow—and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me.  Gen. 27:3

I have an Alaska Guide Creations bino harness. At all 4 points around the perimeter it has the female side of fastex buckles. So anything that has a male fastex can be connected. You can put those in the slack ends of your shoulder straps or buy the add in ones to put them onto the padded part of your shoulder strap. Duraflex probably makes them.

What part about it is uncomfortable?  Is it pushing something into your shoulders?

Ya know I bought a pair of vultures couple years ago, and clipping them into my pack straps is a great idea.
Now if I get tired of packing them I put them on my J34.


Ummmmmm

Tinker with that idea this weekend.

Thanks :tup:

I have the Badlands bino harness with my pursuit pack and it doesn't bother me but you could simply get some carabiners and clip the pouch to you straps if there is something on your straps to clip to.

one of my badlands bino case straps ripped off the bino case, so I contacted Badlands and they sent me a new one.  I took the old version and cut the straps off the collector that goes in the middle of the back, so the straps were long.  I then sewed them around speed clips, so that they would clip and unclip easily from the backpack.  It works well, but I ultimately went to a different variety of bino case.  I am currently using the Kuiu Bino case, which the straps are significantly less bulky than the Badlands straps and collector in the back.  Also lower in weight.

I think badlands makes a good product, but I thought the whole system was too bulky when also wearing a pack.

I can send pictures of what I did if you want to see it.

I would try a different bino pack. I use an Alaska Guide Creations one and barely know it's there with or without my pack on. That or the FHF packs are great.

Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Another thing to note is that if your bino harness is attached to your pack, you can never take you pack off and still have the ability to use your binos.

i would definitely look into other bino harnesses.

Whacker1 I would like to see pics, if you dont mind.

Mostly it is the bulk. i have tried a couple harness, they all work okay.
I was just looking a pimplier idea, or way. I dont like having strap on strap on my shoulders.
I think it would be great if the option was there to be able to clip the Bino case onto the front of the pack.

here are a few pics to try to explain what I did.  I would leave the metal clips attached to the pack and then unclip the plastic clips detaching or attaching to the pack.  The lower metal clips attached to the lower portion of the shoulder straps, which would go around the waist/belly
