Let me tell you a story that gives you the answer.
It's a story about a hunting trip to South Africa. Where I screwed up.
But let's get a bit of terminology out of the way first.
At RedKettle we call it a bino caddy.
The difference from a regular strap is that the harness or caddy has two parts.
- The caddy: contains your binoculars
- The shoulder harness: holds the caddy in place on your chest
The harness goes around your shoulders, not your neck.
And it should ideally attach to the top and bottom of the caddy.
Otherwise, you won't get the full benefit.
On to South Africa.
