    How do you carry your binoculars?

    If anyone wants a chest harness (I have been known to use one on occasion, but not much while birding), I recommend looking at BinoBro. It's a minimalist, lightweight and unobtrusive option to take weight off neck and protect optics. The beauty is that it's somewhere between a front cover and...

    How do you carry your binoculars?

    https://binobro.com/ I really like this chest pouch. Very minimalist, light, and unobtrusive. He's also a 'cottage industry' which means if stock sizes don't work for new product or something unusual, it's possible he can modify or update size etc.
