Crooked Horn Bino System Review

Binoculars are as much a part of hunting as hiking boots and a skinning knife; few hunters leave home without them. Nearly all manufacturers of binoculars will include a neckstrap, either fancy or plain, with the purchase of a new set of binoculars. Neckstraps are a great way to carry binos for a short while on scouting trips; but spend a day hiking with heavy bouncing binos on your chest or stomach. After a few hours of bouncing binos, you'll quickly start packing the binos away where they are least accessible when you happen to jump game a few hundred yards away when coming around a ridge.


The Crooked Horn Outfitters Bino System.

One solution to the bouncing bino problem is to use a more advanced bino strap system. Crooked Horn Outfitters developed their Bino System as a way to securely hold the binos to your chest at all times where they are ready for quick use when afield.

The Bino System has two straps that go around your arms and are bound together in the back by a piece of leather. On the front of each strap is a quick release retainer that holds each side of the binocular to a strap holding it securely to your chest. This keeps the binos out of the way when you're not using them, but still keeps them quick and easy to access.


The leather portion of the system goes on the back while the straps go over the shoulders.


Each strap has a quick release attachment that allows the binos to move up
and down the straps while remaining attached to the torso.

In order to attach the binoculars to the quick release retainers, Crooked Horn includes a set of zip ties and steel rings. Simply zip-tie the rings to each side of the binos where the neck strap would usually attach. Then snap the rings into the quick release retainers. Crooked Horn has a brief video on YouTube that shows how to attach the steel ring to the binoculars.

When using the Bino System afield it will not completely eliminate bounce especially with heavy or large binoculars. However it does eliminate most of the bounce and places most of the weight of the binoculars on the shoulders rather than the neck. Over the course of several days the Bino System is much more preferable to a neckstrap if you will be hiking any length of time. Another bonus to the Bino System is that they keep the binos attached to the hunter at all times, this may seem trivial, unless you have set down your binos (just for a moment!) then accidentally walked away.

Crooked Horn also manufactures a few acces...
