    How do you carry your binoculars?

    That's the only way I'll wear binoculars and since I prefer them on a fairly short leash, only slippery nylon straps for me, which allows them to swing around to the front much more easily.

    How do you carry your binoculars?

    There’s more to potential damages than just what one does, as opposed to how, and some of us are able to work in harsh environments without destroying our gear.

    How do you carry your binoculars?

    For a minimalist approach I've been using either the "wide shoestring" strap that comes with the 8x20 Ultravids, but since Leica doesn't make one for the larger binoculars, my favored strap had become the slightly wider equivalent made by Canon for their cameras. Of all the straps I've seen...

    How do you carry your binoculars?

    Seems to fit your long-winded post I guess. Stop being amazed that others don't share all of your views and quit turning it into an international issue, especially since there are other issues more worthy.

    How do you carry your binoculars?

    My thoughts exactly. I don't care if I don't want to use a common neck carry or chest harness; all I care is that other people like them and that's all the validation they need. For me it's still just cross body carry or pocket and I wish we could all accept that different people = different...

    How do you carry your binoculars?

    I'm no less than equally surprised that people can be so incapable of understanding that there are many ways of doing things which bring satisfaction to others, not to mention totally closed-minded to the possibility of doing anything in a manner differing from their own. Would be nice to have...

    What is the name or model of the Mystery Ranch option?

    How do you carry your binoculars?

    Unless you use a slippery nylon strap which allows you to grab the binoculars and swing them in front of you with no friction to slow you down. All three pairs of my binoculars are on smooth Canon straps that are just simple perfection at its best.

    How do you carry your binoculars?

    Oooooops! I only agreed with you that I'm shocked that the carry method I won't use is also the most popular. I only carry across-body and never hanging down in front from a neck strap.

    How do you carry your binoculars?

    Absolutely the only way I'm interested in carrying binoculars, as any other method is just in the way for me. Well, sometimes in my pocket or on the window sill.

    How do you carry your binoculars?

    Yes, yes. This is what I think too.

    How do you carry your binoculars?

    On my chest they'd definitely be annoying for me and the focus of the thread being binoculars is perfect for me, since I'm not carrying those other distractions. Your answer doesn't cover everyone else just because it's perfect for you and that's all that some of the rest of us would like to...

    How do you carry your binoculars?

    It's not a race, for one thing, and for another, I don't believe it's true unless someone is using a strap that brings friction with it. I use a very slippery strap on all my binoculars and if there was a difference in time it would probably take a stopwatch to even notice. But....once you...

    How do you carry your binoculars?

    Kind of like this, except much higher, and on the other side. Wearing them that low would be impossible for me.

    How do you carry your binoculars?

    I bought a few Canon straps made of very slippery nylon, much like seatbelt material, and put both my left arm and head through at the same time so that they carry underneath my arm. Weight is well under control, they are very protected, and the slippery material makes it easy to slide them...
