i picked up the AGC one this year.  i'd been using an S4 lockdown pack for a few years, so coming from that i really like the locking buckles and the fact that it's totally covered up so i don't get it full of pine needles moving through reprod.

i think i would like it better if it opened forward, took me a little getting used to pulling my binos out.  the material is a little rustly, but i suspect that it will quiet down with some use.  i really like having the extra pockets for little stuff that would be rattling around in my vest otherwise.  if i wear a backpack walking into an area i'll often ditch it along the way, it's nice to be able to keep a knife, and a few little essentials on me.  since the harness snugs up tight and doesn't move, it doesn't  bother me at all to carry some weight on my chest.
you can still get gas in heaven, and a drink in kingdom come,
in the meantime, i'll be cleaning my gun

I have the Muley Freak harness like the one in the picture. It is 10 times better than the pos Vortex case that came with my binos. It opens forward, and is really comfortable. Just my  :twocents:

I like it
It looks a bit bigger then the kuiu, but I havenít looked at the specs yet

I have one of the AGs and like most of my stuff, its situational.  I dont always drag the whole sporting goods department out with me, but when I do use mine, its usually with 15x56 Zeiss plus it holds my tripod adapter, Kestrel, range finder, cheat sheets, and tags.

Winner winner chicken dinner.  I finally bought an FHF this year to upgrade from my 20+ year old Crooked Horn Bino Harness ( yeah I know ) . I like how compact and light it is compared to the other ones . Kept my Swaros clean and dry all Washington season and  Montana late deer hunt .

Different strokes for different folks, I couldnít stand how big the lid is on the fhf harness it is right  in your face, ran the Kuiu one for a season and it is the worst one I have used. Check out the Marcupial brand super well designed and built has magnets built in for quite use. Of all the brands I have gone through it far and above better.

I got an Outdoor Vision ridge top last year.  After using It for a year I am very happy with it. Magnetic opening. Opens out. Compact and unconstructive.
