Okay fellas at the urging of several friends, I’m offering a custom binocular carrier that I’ve designed and refined especially for us bowhunters. But since it’s neither a strap nor a harness, let’s call it the “3Toe Binocular Suspender”.
$40 each TYD
TLDR: Most practical, lightweight, totally quiet, convenient way to bowhunt with binos. Maybe EVER. You want one.
My 3Toe Binocular Suspender is a unique way to carry binoculars—especially while you bowhunt. It’s a lightweight lay-flat strap with a self-adjusting leather “tail” that fastens directly to the back of your belt or belt loop. The “tail” works like a suspender by connecting your binos to your britches. It shifts the weight of binoculars completely off your neck and re-balances that weight over your shoulders. No more neck fatigue or bad posture, ever. The 3Toe Binocular Suspender ensures your binos will always be ready, comfortable, and then out of the way when you draw your bow.
Now unlike a shoulder harness, you won’t fight any elastic each time you raise your binos to look through them. So you’ll be steadier longer and tire less. And unlike a basic neck strap, there’s zero strain and no sloppy bouncing or movement when you walk/move/shoot.
The 3Toe Binocular Suspender is quick and easy to use. Simply place it over your head and drop the “tail” behind your back. Then reach behind, and fasten the leather piece to your belt or belt loop. That’s really all there is to it, no special flexibility or fuss required, and it comes off just as quick.
The 3Toe Binocular Suspender works with all sizes of people and binoculars. It’s cooler in the summer and doesn’t restrict your motion in the least even when you’re bundled up in the winter.
In fact, a feature unique to the 3Toe Binocular Suspender is that it can be worn over *OR* beneath any of your outer layers. No matter how heavily you bundle up. If worn somewhere underneath your outer layers, you won’t have to off-and-on your binoculars to add or remove clothing. Either way it always fits perfectly no matter what you might wear or un-wear later on.
I made 3 this weekend—ready to send out now:

Good hunting and good shooting. God bless!
BONUS: No belt or belt loop? No problem! Since wool bibs and summer shorts often don’t have belt loops. I’ll include a temporary no-belt attachment pin with each one. This is a heavy duty 2.5 inch safety pin with a locking leather tab. Just pin it horizontally to where your belt would be and slide the leather tab to lock it closed. Then connect the leather keeper to the top bar of the pin. Done. ALSO included is a short lanyard for attaching the ocular lens rain/dust cover.
