Re: Bino Strap System
I use the bino buddy and think it's the best thing for carrying binos. I, too, have the chest strap on my pack and have never had a problem with the bino strap. I even use the bio strap to carry my 35mm camera around amusement parks, etc., and it's great for that.
When using the system, you might remove it to get an outer jacket off to cool down, etc., just remember to put the bino system back on! I forget once during an archery hunt and got "caught" holding my binos, while the deer approached, and had no wear to put them.
