First and foremost, Sitka has been the best customer service I've ever experienced. No automated systems when I called and a very patient and helpful staff. Don't be hesitant to call for info and or when figuring out how layer for your hunt. Unfortunately my binos viper HD 10x42 do not fit and I had to return the system. With that said, overall the design of the system is great. The magnetic closure is strong and all stiching was tough and durable. The case itself has a webbing inside the holder, which holds the binos in place if you need to stalk hunt with the the lid open for the last minute grab and go. I love the open country design pattern and wish they sold a bigger system. I called Sitka and there is discussion of a larger system. Once released I will be purchasing and testing immediately. The reason for the four stars is although the product didn't fit my binos, is that as a system it's well made, durable and quiet. Before you buy, however, realize they are for small binos only.

Too small. Wish Sitka made one that would fit my Leica Hd-b rangefinders.

The Good: Great case, like the zipper and magnet. Good harness. The Bad: Doesn't fit any of my high end binos. The case is WAY TOO SMALL. MY Swarovski EL 10x42's don't fit, the 12's obviously not, and the Vortex Razor HD's barely fit and it's too snug to get them quickly and quietly out. Please make the case bigger, sorry but I don't need to protect my cheap luepold or bushnell binos but those are the only ones that fit! Oh and I don't want to read more reviews from guys who test GORE products for a living, or get free stuff from Sitka. Why would they give it a bad review?

overall i like this pretty good. I have a pair of Zeiss Terra's 10x42 and they fit pretty snuggly and was very hard to get out of the bivy. I cut the mesh divider on the inside out and am all is golden. That is the reason for the half star deduct i had a hard time cutting a brand new 130.00 product. I did add a upgrade that fits the bill perfectly as the bivy has a ring to secure your bios from falling. i looked up the rick young outdoors site and purchased the extra clip and split ring set and i have a simple and cheap 5 dollar add on that makes the bivy perfect after a modification.

My Petzel bug pack has a magnet in the top of the map pocket slot between the bag and straps and it has never erased any magnetic media as far as I know, however, if your binoculars record to RAM and it is wet and there is a magnet nearby. On the other hand should you WANT to erase anything quickly it might be handy to have a powerful magnet you keep way away from normal use areas. [/] Choice of how you use gear is as important as original intended purpose. Is that right?
