The Ray Mears Binocular and Camera Harness is an invaluable accessory for those heading outdoors with optical equipment. Made from supple elastic with a central leather back piece, the harness holds your optics securely against your chest until needed, reducing the shock and vibration equipment is often subjected to when carried swinging from a standard neck strap. The harness allows you to move quickly and quietly with both hands free, helping you to negotiate tricky terrain without the risk of hitting your optics on branches or catching on undergrowth as you go.
The leather back piece is cut from naturally tanned full grain bridle butt in Woodlore’s Rich Brown colour and sports the Ray Mears ‘snowshoe’ logo. The soft brown elastic straps hug your binoculars or camera close to your chest while not in use but have enough 'give' to allow you to lift your optics for use, while still being securely attached. Black nylon fittings with a matt finish prevent noise and reflection: four sliders offer easy adjustment of the elastic straps to get the best fit for all body sizes and swivel snap hooks couple quickly and easily to your equipment. Two sets of small black split rings and miniature cable ties are provided, allowing you to have two pieces of equipment prepared and ready for attachment to your harness.
An ideal piece of kit for stalking
, wildlife and bird watching, and nature photography, it is also useful for park rangers, gamekeepers and many other outdoor occupations.
