Out of the box, this harness made my Nikon Monarch binoculars hang mostly below my belt buckle. ( I wear a men's large jacket.) When I tightened every harness strap to its shortest setting they still hang lower than the photo on the web site, and at that setting the harness starts to bind in the shoulders, so it's uncomfortable. Plus that photo is just deceitful - that's not how a heavy pair of binoculars really hangs, with the three-way junction up higher than the armpits. a hundred yards of walking, and those straps would slip to a lower position. At the price I paid it's not worth the return freight for a refund, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. My previous harness that I bought at eagle optics (stolen earlier this year) was much better.

I bought this for use during hunting season so have not put it to a true test as hunting season is not open. I have tried it on and made adjustments for clothing and such and it works perfectly fine at this point. Will give it a true testing in about 2 months.

I have an enormous pair of Astronomical Binoculars. After months of using regular bino straps, I decided it was time to give my neck a break (I was becoming a hunchback). These bino straps are great for relieving neck strain...plus, with the quick releases, I can remove the harness for when I mount my Astro Binos on a tripod (no more having the strap dangle from the binos when mounted on a tripod). GREAT for all binos (I even use them with my tiny 6.5 x 32 close focus butterfly binoculars).
