If you’ve followed the Rok Blog these last few months, you’ll know I’ve been warming up to the idea of bino harness systems.  KUIU just released their version.  It looks good on paper, so I ordered the system and plan to test it out in the field during the scouting season.  Here’s some information from KUIU’s press release:

“KUIU recently announced the release of their 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 binoculars 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.”

If you have any questions, post them up in the comments section below and KUIU will answer them.  Don’t forget to subscribe to the Rok Blog (top of page under Fitness/Other links) so you don’t miss the latest product releases.

Robby Denning
Robby Denning started hunting mule deer in the late 1970’s, only missing one season in 35 years. At 25, he gave up the pursuit of all other big-game to focus on taking the best bucks possible. He began hunting the West on a DIY budget hunting an average of 30 days a year for mule deer. Robby loves the hunt as much as the kill and the entire process from research to scouting to hunting. He’s killed four bucks over 200 inches in the last 15 seasons, mostly on easily-obtained tags. He owns a public-land scouting service and runs a private-land outfitting business helping other hunters in their pursuit of deer and elk. Robby has scouted and hunted literally thousands of square miles of mule deer country and brings a wealth of knowledge about these experiences with him. To him, the weapon of choice is just a means-to-an-end and will hunt with bow, rifle, or muzzleloader – whatever it takes to create an opportunity to take a great mule deer. He is also the author of "Hunting Big Mule Deer" available on Amazon. Robby believes all of creation is from God for man to manage, respect, and through which to know its Creator


  1. It looks pretty good
    Question: It looks like there is only one strap coming down from the top, and its attached to the binos. Meaning when you pull the binos out to glass the shoulder harness is basically detached from the protective pocket on the top side. Does that create a problem with the pocket sliding down your chest?
    Also, does the back panel breath ok?

  2. The harness is designed to fit snuggly around your upper torso. When the binoculars are removed from the pouch, the pouch does not fall forward or down.
