Binocular Harness Suggestions

Hello,
I'm wondering if any of you own one of these and have suggestions? I'm assuming some like the Bushnell Harness is also compatible with other brands. I have Canon binoculars and need to get one of these harnesses. Are they all over the shoulder, none from the waist? Do you find this product worthwhile? Thanks!

I have a Brunton harness with Nikon binocs. I think over the shoulder makes the most sense so they hang in front of you.

I don't believe you'd want them around your waist.

The harness is wonderful and I am not into gadgets and contraptions or extra needless gear. My harness and sports bra are key factors to a comfortable upper body on a vehicle safari.

Thanks Lynn, I'll just pick one of these up. Maybe it'll work for my camcorder too?

If you have a harness on 2 items, that could get tricky. You'd have to remove one from your neck to put on the other. It could be a hassle. But just because the harness is attached to the binocs or the camcorder doesn't mean you have to wear it. Sometimes I had the binoculars on the seat beside me and kept my camera around my neck.

I agree plus it would look a little silly and probably become heavy. I'll just put the camcorder down. I leave in three weeks but am dreading the flight. Ugh!

Thanks, Lynn, for your suggestion of a Brunton harness. I gave my husband (an avid birder) one for Christmas and he LOVES it. He's really picky about his "accessories" so it must be really a good one!
