"Bino Case for Swarovski SLC 10 x 50?"

I just purchased some Swarovski SLC 10 x 50's and want to get a good case for them. I do a ton of hiking and riding the wheeler. I would like to get something that will protect them, as well as keep the dust off of them. Do you guys have any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help.

Badlands Bino case. Hands down the best I've ever used.

I looked into the badlands, but they don't make one big enough for the 10 x 50 unfortunately. Wish they would have cause I love the design. jarhead helped me out with AGC case. I should be getting it tomorrow, the owner of AGC is letting me try before I buy! That says alot about his product if you ask me. Thanks for the help guys.

I don't think you will be dissapointed. I really like mine while on the wheelers and rhino. I just keep a piece of 550 cord tied to the binos and keep that around my neck so I wont drop them.

Sorry I am an idiot sometimes. 550 cord is the same as parachute cord.

Yeah pretty cool when a guy will do that for you. Him and his buddy even invited me to go to their deer camp in WY next year.

Thats awesome! Ya I just got the case this evening and it is sweet! Love the kings camo pattern. My only problem is it kind of rides my shoulders and neck funny. Have you had a problem with that? I am going out coyote hunting this weekend, and am going to try it out and see what I think after a day of hunting.

No not yet I took awhile to set the straps up because I always wanted to have it higher on my chest than it should of been. After I loosened the top straps so it was a little lower it felt good.

I think that one thing that I am going to do is replace the buckle on the front. I can't get it open very easy when I have gloves on because it's so small. I have a couple extra's from my badlans packs so I might sew one of those on their and I think it will make it a lot easier.

Ya the front clip is a good and bad thing. the good thing is that you dont have to worry about your binos falling out. The bad thing is if you have anything in the front pocket, its kind of hard to get out with the clip cliped. I will let you know what I think of it after tomorrows hunt.

Elko, are you talking about the Badlands? I called them before I posted this, and they said the swarovski do not fit.

Yes. Like I said before. I have the Badlands Bino case and I have 10X50 Leupolds. And I still have room. Are the swaros that much bigger?

We got our hands on this pack and checked it out for a while. Here is the Review.

Overall Rating: 4.9/5
Functionality: 5/5
Value: 4.7/5
Ergonomics: 5/5
Durability: 5/5

Story: The most common problems I have with binoculars are that they either bounce on my chest as I walk, put a strain on my neck, the lenses collect dirt or moisture, or they are not conveniently located. The Alaska Guide Creations Bino Chest Pack resolves all of these issues and offers some other very welcome features.
Bowhunting in the West is one of my passions. This means most of my time is spent in a spot and stalk setting where I like to have the binoculars handy. The problem is, I donít like messing with lens caps, which just get lost and they are too time consuming. As a result, my bino eye pieces collect dust, twigs, snow or rain and when I need to use them, my view is impaired. Another problem with traditional systems is that they take up valuable real estate and donít leave room for important items such as a rangefinder and puffer bottle.
The Bino Chest Pack allows easy access to binoculars on your chest while keeping them encased and out of the elements. The main compartment is roomy and padded. My 10X50 Binoculars fit nicely in the main pocket. My rangefinder also fits well in the smaller pocket in front of the main compartment.
The straps are designed to adjust easily and do no put any pressure on your neck. The same case size will fit all sizes of people and adjust easily when adding or removing coats or other garments. The two side pockets would accommodate a small GPS, lens cleaner, puffer bottle, snacks or a headlamp. There is also thin pocket on the back of the pack that would hold a map, license or other thin item.
Iíve taken the Bino Chest Pack on several hikes to watch wintering elk and deer and the system is very comfortable with no bouncing or annoying movement. Due to the strap system , I did not notice the weight of my binoculars, rangefinder, and other miscellaneous items I took with me.
Iíve also taken the Bino Chest Pack with me to the archery range to see if the pack would interfere at all with my shot. I was very pleased to learn that there will be no interference, even when carrying my rangefinder in the front pocket so you can be sure that the next time Iím sneaking through the woods on an archery hunt, the Bino Chest Pack will be with me.
