Binocular Harness For Nikon 8x32 SE Porro and 10x40 Porro

Probably been discussed before, but can anyone suggest a good binocular harness for the above mentioned bins. They have different strap connections as opposed to Roof bins and that is all I have seen people use harnesses with.

Thanks

Hi follownoone,

If a harness that you want to use isn't compatible with your porros, I would think you could use some attachment like this: http://www.optics4birding.com/vortex...strap-set.html or this: http://rickyoungoutdoors.com/binocul...ection-straps/ to make them compatible.

Good luck.

This has to be a joke right??

To the OP I have the Nikon SE 8x32 and 10x42. I use the vortex connectors and the RY ultra light harness.

Highly recommend the RY harness, have it on all my bins except for my loaners.

I would suggest you use the vortex connectors as they work better with these porros than the RY connectors due to the way they orient the split ring.

Also Adorama is a better source for the vortex connectors as they have much more reasonable shipping costs on small parts vs. optics4birding.

Hope this helps.

I bought the vortex at Bass Pro and it works great. Thanks again for the replies.
