KUIU’s Binocular Harness System

KUIU-binocular-harnessKUIU recently announced the release of its Binocular Harness System. The new binocular system, unlike most others on the market, peels down and forward from the top, allowing for simple and efficient one-handed operation. Without the use of elastic, the system fits comfortably and snuggly around your upper chest, provides even weight distribution and prevents annoying bounce and sag when running or crawling.

“We spent 2 years designing, testing and refining the KUIU Binocular Harness into the most functional system created,” explains Jason Hairston, founder of KUIU.  “Our design holds your binocular tight to your chest, is extremely quiet, allows for easy one-handed operation, and is modular with two sizes to fit a wide range of binoculars.”

Like other products in KUIU’s Guide series, the binocular system, uses Toray Primeflex 4-way stretch soft shell fabric with a micro-fleece lining for quiet use. The Primeflex fabric combined with an elastic cord and Duraflex cord locks provide customized fitting to assure protection for your optics in all hunting conditions.  Although the system is treated with the high performing Toray Kudos DWR, a 30 denier sil-nylon diamond ripstop CORDURA Fabric rain cover is included to ensure complete waterproofness.

The Binocular Harness System is available in Vias or Verde Camo. The large sized system weighs 7 ounces, fits binoculars up to 10×42 and is available for $79.99.  The extra large weighs 8 ounces, fits binoculars up to 15×56 and is available for $84.99.
