"Bino & Rangefinder harness set up"

Hey Guys,
Right now I'm running an S4 lockdown style bino harness that I bought 3 years ago, with the belt case that the rangefinder came with mounted on the elastic of the lower right strap. While I do like the S4 for shooting 3D (minus the RF) I am not a huge fan of this system while I'm in the woods.

So I was wondering what other folks used to carry and protect their optics in the field? I've been doing some looking around online and in the stores, but wanted some 1st hand opinions. I've been looking into the Alaska Guide pouches, as well as a Badlands pouch with the rangefinder pocket mounted below the bino pocket, but $150 is a little steep for me.

So what is everyone running? and why do you like that setup?

Thanks in advance!

I am using the Vortex 'Glasspack" with my range finder pouch attached to the chest strap. I am very happy with the setup. It is light, not bulky, secure and doesn't get in the way when shooting my bows.

I'm using the BinoBro by Oregon Pack Works. It is light and not bulky and the large fits Leica Geovids.

Marsupial Gear harness and range finder pouch. Best bang for your buck and a comfortable, capable harness system.

Thanks guys, I've been looking a bit at the Vortex packs, I saw on Midway USA that they must be putting their logo on a version of the Alaskan Guide packs.

Those Binobro's look good, I like the material, for opening them it looks like it has a zippered opening?

I really like the looks of the Marsupial Rigs, plus it helps that they are being made here in Phoenix (I did not know that before)

I carry my rangefinder on a flexible bino harness, and my bino seperately in a Badlands bino pack over the the rangefinder harness. This leaves the rangefinder exposed, but makes it as accessible as possible.

I would ditch the rangefinder, and get a pair of range/binos.

Maybe someday, but for now I'm just looking to protect my current investments
