Here ya go, you won’t be disappointed. It’s all I carry for binos nowadays, and, they’re not huge and bulky.

these are pretty good.  Also check out the sig Zulu line.  I have the 7s wife has the 5s both pretty nice for the price

D-Rock, he already got a pair of Mavens.

Thanks. I should have asked earlier, but I didn't even think of it.  Any recommendations for a bino harness? I have never owned one.  I do a lot of hiking and shed hunting, so looking for something I can get up to my face for quick glances.

There is a recent thread about bino harnesses. You will find every opinion possible but short answer from the other thread FHF, Alaska Guide Creations and Outdoor Vision.

Snake, did you get an elk this year?  I ask because an Alaska Guide Creation bino harness is one of the prizes for the 2020 elk photo contest over on WapitiTalk  ;)

Technically no I did not, There is a good chance I scared a few to death stumbling around the brush in N. Idaho! I called in about 20 of them under 150 yards but couldn't get a shot.
I have a buddy that takes about 30 seconds to get his Binos out of his harness and it drives me nuts! I will look in to the harness suggestions, thanks guys.

So, when you say: "Here ya go," do you mean: "Here, you go," or "Here, I am sending you these Zeiss binoculars because you are a nice guy," or "Here, Merry Christmas."

Thanks, man.  I needed better glass.

So after using the Mavens for a while, they is hardly any difference between them and the vortex diamondbacks.  I would say they are dead even in clarity and quality.
