I purchased a pair of Vortex binos recently and they came with the glasspak harness. I know a lot of people have harnesses they prefer over this one but I only had one complaint about it...so far...

I wanted to be able to remove and install the straps on the case easier. The bottom has clips and the top had to be fed through the ladder lock buckle. So what I did was bought 2 adjustable “G Hooks” for 25mm (or ~1”) webbing. There seems to be a couple different styles, sizes, and terms for them. Just make sure it’s for the proper size webbing and that they have two slots for the webbing to feed through so it’s adjustable.

All you have to do is cut the plastic ladder lock buckles off of the case. You can even leave them on to make sure you like the mod. Now you can remove and reattach the straps in a fraction of the time for only a few dollars (or less). Check Amazon and EBay for the 25mm adjustable G Hooks.

Good idea. I keep a cheaper set of vortex bino in my truck. This will be a great mod for them.

I did the same thing after I had several of the buckles break. That was the only issue I had with the harness was the buckles now I am completely satisfied.
