Default Best bono harness case?

Where I hunt I s red dirt roads, and with a 30 minute or more drive to the stand and back the red dirt gets in EVERY crack it can find.. itís pretty bad.. at the beginning of the year I bought a pair of Swarovski ELís and I want to keep them clean and in good working order. I saw kuius harness that looks pretty good and I also looked at some from Alaskan guide creations.. anyone have any experience with these or other brands?

I've got an Outdoor Vision and I love it. Marsupial, FHF, Alaskan Guide, and Mystery Ranch all make nice ones too.

I would look at the Badlands with the magnetic lid for what you are describing. Used to run that harness but it wasn't for me. Still a nice harness though.

I have the AGC Cub harness with an FHF range finder pouch, I like it a lot but haven't worn any other bino harnesses.

Currently using a FHF (small) with rangefinder case which fits 10x40 Swaro's very well. Sits high on my chest which I like and is a smaller overall case then others I've seen. Only draw back that some may not like is a rear opening cover which I usually fold back behind the case when sitting for any length of time. I could see how a lid hanging forward might get in the way when shooting but maybe not. I would be interested in comparing a Marsupial but happy so far with the FHF.

Marsupial in my opinion. Well made and actually flips down to open.

This! Love mine. Like said above, it's the only one I found that the cover flips down and out of the way. Magnets hold the cover open or closed and work perfectly. Silent but snug.

Another vote for Marsupial, however...

Marsupial are not fully enclosed and will not keep the dirt/dust out completely. I would still buy Marsupail, but for your conditions you need to also get the rain shield. It's just a shock corded cover that will keep all the dust out. I guess it depends on what level of clean you want to keep those bones though...

I also have the Marsupial range finder pouch for the system, it all works very well together.

Outdoor Vision has the best qualities of all of them. Fully closed, opens out, uses magnets, and is slim

I use the Alaska guide creations. First season with it and loved it for my steiners. Kept them clean and nice, and worked great for bow and rifle. Will be a long term user of this for sure.

Sitka has a pretty nice one with the magnetic lid! Zips up as well. All straps buckle in so itís easy to take on and off. Extra slack is rolled up and has a built in Velcro to keep it rolled
