Kuiu bino harness. Nothing else compares in my opinion. Very practical, light, functional, it's very well thought out.

I have tried the butler creek spandex straps....awful. They just bounce around the entire time. I have tried Sitkas old bino harness and it was very poorly designed and impractical (and I am a huge Sitka gear fanboy lol). I have not tried their new one but I have no need to. The Kuiu is where it's at. I have used it for 2 years now. Zero issues, extremely comfortable. It's pricey, but IMO worth it.

Think those and badlands are considered the best out there.

I just picked up an Alaska Guide. They have several models. I went with the basic model because it fit my needs (lighter weight and more compact) better. It gets rave reviews from many on the western hunting websites. As does the Kuiu.

Can't wait to try it this fall to see if it lives up to it's billing.

Agree on Kuiu, own two of them and bought my dad one last year. They are really comfortable.

I went from kuiu to FHF... To me the FHF is more comfortable and has more small pockets(wind checker, license, elk calls etc). Kuiu was a good harness, the FHF just fits my style better.

I bought the Crooked Horn because of positive reviews and am taking it on its first hunt in a couple of weeks. It appears convenient, but I'm not completely happy with how the straps twist, but that may not be meaningful in the field. The trip is extended and will involve both hunting and fishing, so it should be a good test of the harness.

I have used Crooked Horn and Cabela's until I tried out FHF Gear. I ended up giving the other two away since the FHF was everything I wanted in a bino harness - lightweight, no bounce at all, ability to add pockets for rangefinder/GPS, and durable.

This may be a stupid idea, but I wonder about making a little drop leg holster for binos, range finder, gps, and other things
