Been looking into getting me one, looked at the Vortex bino pack but it has some bad reviews. Any good ones out there?

Just researched this at nauseam. IMO there is not a perfect one for me, but Alaskan Guide Creations was the one I went with and I love it. The only negative I have is I wished the bino closure opened the opposite direction buts it’s honeslty just a personal preference. This is a large “all in one” type harness if you get the Maxx pocket model. I run my binos, rangefinder, inreach, windicator, earplugs, chapstick, & license in mine. For the minimalist harness you could go with one of the AGCs that doesn’t have the Max pocket.

Marsupial Gear harness was nice and probably would be my second choice, but the magnetic closure has no place to be used around electronic equipment. So I didn’t even consider it.

Prior to the AGC I ran the Kuiu. I really liked it except for the harness part. It was a minimalist type harness with just room for the binos. They have since updated it and made it a lot better but for the weight addition I feel AGC is a better option.

Vortex, Sitka and a few others are out there as well. Nothing really competes with the AGC but it is a little pricey.

Outdoor Vision is the best for me by far. AGC may be best if bulk doesn’t matter but I wanted slimmer and OV was best in the slim one. I’ve run it hard

I second this to almost a T.

Prior to AGC I ran Kuiu and FHF. I’d rate FHF over kuiu and even with marsupial, biggest difference being your thoughts on magnetic and GPS/compass interference, which personally isn’t a big deal if cognisant of it


They all work well, it’s really comes down to little features you like


Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

I went with their largest Bino Pack. I can get everything I need in it for a hunt, no need for a back pack.

I really like the Badlands the best so far. I need to run a couple hunts out west to determine if they are exactly what I want.

Marsupial is great!! Low profile (which AGC isn't) but can still run calls, phone, extras and attach my GPS and LRF. Had zero issues with mine over the past 3 seasons to include backcountry trips requiring significant navigation. Magnets may affect an old school compass but they didn't mess with anything else.

Had Kuiu before which was ok.

My buddies had two from 'muley freak' that fell apart, wrong order, crap service, etc

After looking at everything listed here, I think I’m going for the Badlands Bino XR
