I was not familiar with Backcountry products before reviewing the KEYHOLE Hands-Free Carry System for Cameras and Binoculars by Backcountry Solutions. When I first read about the hands-free system for carrying binoculars, my first thought was “Yes, please!” I am a hiker and a birder. When I walk through the woods, I usually carry field glasses with me. I hate the feeling of having a binocular strap handing around my neck. It feels like I am being pulled forward and down. In fact, I usually carry my binoculars with the strap slung over my shoulder. That is not a secure method of transport, I know. I was excited to give the The KEYHOLE Hands-Free Carry System for Cameras and Binoculars by Backcountry Solutions a try.
The KEYHOLE Hands-Free Carry System for Cameras and Binoculars by Backcountry Solutions is basically a harness you wear over your shoulders. The keyhole system is where the binoculars (or camera) are attached to the harness. A bracket screws onto your binoculars at the tripod mount. One end of the bracket slips through the keyhole to secure the binoculars. The harness has two buckles in the front, which is how you take the system off and put it on.
