Works great for me. Was exactly what I was looking for.
Love Eberlestock I have three back packs and the bino pack. But the built in holster is worthless. Even with my small carry pistol the lid will not close right. The lid closes in between the gun and itself. Had high hopes but a complete flop on the holster idea. And the tether idea is another area that would not take much to improve. A bungee cord and no easy way or a quick connect to get the binoculars free from the pack. If it wasn’t a Christmas present I would have returned it. Also got the Bandit back pack love the bag but a single layer bottom really. I noticed it when I had an object in the bag with a semi sharp end and it was just about poking through. I question the durability of a single layer fabric bottom. A cheap $15 back pack from Walmart has padding and or multiple layers for wear tear when bag is setting on the ground. Like I said love their stuff and I know they know better. All my other Eberlestock products are 5 star worthy but not these two.
Overall, I love the form factor and small size. It fits my Bushnell Nitro 10x42 snugly and my Hawke Frontier EDX 8x32 with some room to spare. A few annoying things keep this from 5 stars. First, the pocket on the front should be large enough for a phone. They have the real estate, but it wasn't designed appropriately (why the angle). My phone will fit in there, but it will not zip. If the space above the zipper was open, it would be close, but they stitched that shut. Second, the retention strap seems it was an after thought. One loop of shock cord is sewn in. It is only designed to connect to one side. It is cumbersome and in the way. I opted not to use it, and designed my own quick detach system (this should come standard and has been on cheaper harnesses I own). Overall, it serves it's purpose; a small, lightweight protector for my binoculars. The MOLLE on the back is a nice touch as well. A matching rangefinder case would be nice. Fix the above issues, and this may become the best in the industry.
Fit - form - function all spot on for my 8x30 Steiner Predators.
The Mountain camo works well with the mish-moshed patterns in my hunting ensemble.
The attention to detail is evident while retrieving and replacing my optics in the field and the well thought out harness is very secure/comfortable.
Fits my leupold 10x42’s perfectly. Back pocket will be a little small for a gun but will be handy for other things when in the forest.
I have a eberlestock pack and am looking forward to integrating them.
I've enjoyed so far only used a few times. But fits 10x42 vortex very good.
Will fit all of my needs for a sleek, protective cover for my binocs as well as my handgun. Cant wait to get it out into the field!
Great product ! My binos fit very well and it was easy to attach to my X1 pack.
Its a christmas prersent!
It was a gift; he said it was what he wanted.
