Product Details

The BWD brand is embossed on the leather shield on the back of our slide-and-flex Bino-System harness. Designed to distribute the weight to the shoulders rather than concentrating pressure on the neck, this fully adjustable black elastic strap system keeps binoculars secure but readily available. Bino-System adapts to all sizes and models of binoculars and cameras.

I use the harness for my Nikon D80 SLR camera. What a wonderful difference. Takes the stress off of my neck. So easy to use. Before the harness, it was awkward to carry the camera and walk my dog at the same time (because I wouldn't hang it around my neck). Now, so easy to do both. I was often missing wonderful bird shots because I couldn't take my camera on our walks. Now - so easy.

My only comment is I wish there were some diagrams as to how they suggest the tie strips were to be attached to the camera. But this harness is fabulous. My neck and shoulders say THANK YOU

I use this for my camera. I have a BIG camera (Nikon 300S) and a big VR lens. It is heavy. I use this for my camera. So easy. Perfect solution. I can just tuck the lens inside one of the front straps and take off walking. The camera is ready for me to use in a split second. This is the perfect solution to hauling the heavy equipment around. And my camera and lens is heavy. My neck is very happy.

The camera store was happy to sell me an official camera harness for $60.00. Not necessary. For $20.00 this one is ideal. Very highly recommend.

I use this harness for my camera to relieve neck strain. It works wonderfully. It's nice that there is an extra set of rings so you can attach the harness to say, your camera and your binoculars.

Very comfortable to wear. Keeps binoculars from bouncing much even when running.

I wanted the item to use for my camera. Works much better then a camera strap and is more comfortable to wear, since the weight of the camera is no longer on my neck and keeps the camera close to your body and prevents the camera from swinging when bending over and possible damge to the camera.

The harness looks to be of the finest quality. The attachment instructions are simple to understand. I will be trying it out for the first time this Sat. at the Christmas Bird Count.

Just what I was looking for to ensure that there is less stress on the neck and fewer straps (binoculars, eyeglasses, camera, etc.)

Great buy! I had backstrain from my previous binocular strap. This seems to be clearing it up!

I originally bought the Bino Harness for my DSLR camera. At the time, I was using a pair of lightweight binos. Since then, I bought new binoculars that are substantially heavier. Using them with the harness is amazingly comfortable as compared to without. You don't even know they're there until you want them, and the harness keeps them from swinging whenever you bend over (really important when you have two or three pieces of equipment dangling from various straps and hooks).

Now I just have to figure out how to use two of them at once. (One came with the binos.)

But seriously, folks, if your binoculars or camera weigh more than about 3/4 of a pound, you'll never regret the day you spring for one of these harnesses.

Bino harness functions as advertised. This is my first harness so I have nothing to compare it with but it is so much better than a neck strap.

Love the bino harness. This one was for my daughter's binos. I already have one for my camera and my binos.

Great item! Gives me free hands when in the field with no neck strain. The Bino Harness I received is exactly as advertised and a terrific value. Thanks for offering this convenience!

Product works fine although the instructions for how to use it were lacking. The picture on the package shows a man wearing the harness with the logo in front.

Exactly what I was hoping-weight distribution now nicely balanced and free hand for camera etc.

I suffered a broken neck and have to be extra careful with ANYTHING that hangs around my neck, so when I saw this item for my Binocs I jumped. Money well spent. Not only do you have the weight off your neck, but your binocs are not swining from Kindom Come and back. An A++ for that one!!!

This is the best harness that I have used. I have continually had problems with the straps getting twisted. I have not had that problem as of yet. I recommend this to everyone.
