Rated 1 out of 5 by from Totally disappointed... The straps that are used to hold the binos in are junk and very unimpressive, the buckles are cheap and the material used for the straps does not grip the buckles. So, if your binos are dropped the fabric will slip right out of the buckles. If I keep using this harness, I will either be using the warranty frequently for broken binoculars or in the Brush of SW Washington, they will come loose and be lost forever. Three times this year, I had the straps slip out and leave the binos barely hanging by one side and once, it came completely off and landed at my feet. As much money as I've spent on Vortex Optics($$$$), I sure hope the optics are of better quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love Vortex, but this thing sucks... I bought this knowing it wasn’t a top shelf pack, but the first weekend I used it it broke! I was perty happy the first day although when it cooled down it was very noisy. And then day two comes, and the first buckle breaks right away, I electrical taped it and went on hunting and that afternoon the second one broke..Alaska Guide Creations here I come.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality from vortex I am extremely disappointed with the purchase of this bino harness. First of it is NOISY! The fabric used in the pouch is made of almost plastic and is very loud when inserting or removing my binos. The straps that are used to hold the binos in are also very unimpressive, the buckles are cheap and the material used for the straps does not grip the buckle so if your binos are dropped the fabric will slip right out of the buckles. I literally had to tie knots to stop the straps from sliding out. I expect a lot more from vortex, this is very poor quality for a $50 piece of gear

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Clips don’t work I got this glass pack with my Fury HD 5000 Bino’s that I just bought. the clips to attach it on the bottom don’t even lock in and snap. They pull out the second you put any pressure on them. The straps to secure the binoculars to the case are slick and don’t keep tension at all. If I put my binos down under their own weight the straps fall out... I love vortex products and have been a long time customer but this case is unusable in this condition which is pretty disappointing considering how much I payed for these binos.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Instructions? Was hoping this would help protect my binoculars but have already decided not to use it. I'm not sure why the quality is so poor. Also not sure about the lack of instructions on how to attach the straps which stated to thread binocular tether straps through harness buckles. Really? That's brilliant. I thought I could set them next to each other and they would attach themselves. How about describing the threading process or even showing a photo of it rather than a photo of a guy holding the binocular strap. After awhile I just laughed at the lack of effort. Sure hope the binoculars aren't as bad as the case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bino Harness - Even better customer service Bought one of these that perfectly suits my needs. I'm a novice hunter, so there could be more rigs with better options, but for me it works great. Ended up having an issue as sometimes happens when you're in the back country. Talked to Erik in Vortex customer service who went absolutely above and beyond. It was quick, personal, no hassle, etc. The product is great, but the level of customer service hearkens back to a day when companies cared about their customers. It's ultra important to know that a company will stick by it's product when you're spending hard earned dollars. Absolutely recommend Vortex!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great until.. Like the first review had one of the large buckles break after about a week of use. This was after my return window was over. Wish I could find a replacement.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't Fit I bought this yesterday from local Cabela's after looking at several. I thought I would stick with Vortex brand as I was sure it would fit my HD 12X50. The site says it does, but I beg to differ. I had to work them into the case and then they stuck almost 1 1/2 to inches above the top. Closing the top left gaps of and inch+. If I were in the field trying to glass and then return them to the case would be difficult at best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bino Harness I have used this product hunting deer,and turkey as well as scouting for waterfowl. I have been more than happy with it. the only complaint that I have (and it is a minor one) is that the lid closes and you can not leave it open for quick access to optics. I realize that it was designed this way to help protect the binos inside. I also work as a biologist and have used this in the spring while surveying for breeding birds and searching for turtles. It always protects my gear and it even has a storage spot for extra batteries for my GPS or a spare pencil. I could not be happier.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so great Bought two of these. His and Hers. After a few hunting trips, the plastic clips broke that secures the harness to your body. Wish it would have lasted a lot longer then that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dust off It's a great gift to keep the binos clean. My wife loves her especially the quick disconnect if you need to show a buddy what you are looking at.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome pack, very comfortable, a bit tight though This pack is very comfy to wear and to use with my binos. My only complaint is that right out of the box this pack is pretty snug when trying to pull out my binos (Diamondback 12x50's) and I put a small wind-icator bottle in one of the side pouches and that was pretty tough to remove too. A little breaking in and this pack will be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for anyone hiking with bino's I bought the GlassPak the same time i bough my Vortex Daimondbacks. I do a lot of walking in the woods and could not be happier with the GlassPak. It keeps my binos tight to my chest and keeps them out of the way when drawing my bow. I would recommend these these to anyone who does a lot of walking while carrying bino's!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Harness ripped first hunt of the season Bought the viper HD 12X50’s that came with the case. The glass is perfect but the harness straps sown to the bag ripped my first day of a 14 day hunt. Maybes the free case isn’t built for the field. Pretty disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Plastic buckle broke day 1 I like the pack but the plastic buckle that connects the straps that come around the back to the pack broke on my first outing. I have just had to tie it off so no longer adjustable for fit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Bought them for hunting, fit great and are comfortable. However, used them for just for last season and my buckles broke. Going to be sending it back to be replaced. Also I decided I don't like the fact I have to buy another brands range finder holder because the mesh on both sides is to small. Only fits my calls and a wind tester. Disappointed, I can't say enough positive about their binos though they're awesome.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just ok The case itself is great. I have 12x50 vipers that wouldn't fit in my previous case, but they fit great in the GlassPak. The openings are secure and the case provides great coverage for my binos. Where the system falls apart is with the harness. The cheap nylon straps that seem to constantly migrate to my neckline and rub and chafe against my skin. There isn't a replacement harness option either. The included bino straps won't hold in place either – surprising because this is what's provided to keep your shiny new binos safe in the field.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bungee latch is awful I bought this case about 6 months ago and the case itself is great especially for the price! But the little bungee latch that holds the lid shut is the worst. My latch hangs lower than the hook and doesn't work at all so every time you crawl or bend over the binoculars fall out! So that's why I only give 2 stars if the latch system was better than definitely a 5 star.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It’s not just for binoculars I bought one of these last summer for the upcoming whitetail bow hunting season. It holds my rangefinder and my monocular as well as some snacks for the stand. The straps that come with it keep me from dropping my gear too. I hunted all season with it and it shows little sign of wear.The only downfall was that one of the plastic clips broke while I was hugging a tree to climb down from one of my stands. I called Vortex and... the V.I.P. warranty covers that! Vortex customer for life.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap buckles I bought this for myself and my son. Both of the buckles on mine broke the 2nd time i used it. One of the buckles broke on my son’s the 3rd time he used it. Not good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Overall Harness Purchased this with my Diamondback 8x42 Bino's and thought it would be a good way to securely protect my bino investment. I haven't taken them out in the field yet, but will intend to keep my bino's in them and intend to use them throughout the summer for 3D archery shoots and then for early season hunting. I don't see any reason to believe these will not perform as I had hoped. For the money this harness is right what I needed and feel it will last me a long time. I will have to echo some of the concerns of the buckles and straps. The buckles do creak and almost rattle a bit, so if using for spot and stalks, that may come into play. I am assuming some modifications will fix that. The straps material is very soft which make them slip a little, but I feel the way they are adjusted now, are secured regardless.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fickle The GlassPak came with a set of bino's i ordered for a hunting trip to Alaska. The bino's are flawless, but the GlassPak is definitely not the greatest harness system, in my opinion, to use while stalking. I plan on purchasing the other Vortex shoulder harness system. The clips on the GlassPak that run from the top strap to the actual bino's themselves click and clack a little bit while walking. They do not do it every step, but it is enough for me to notice while trying to remain silent. The bino's also came with a neck strap, but the bino's swing forward if you lean/bend over or have to crawl/walk hunched over. So the GlassPak is definitely the way to go if you are trying to avoid the bino's swinging forward and are looking for protection from the elements, but Vortex's other shoulder system is better for stalking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice case. Very nice case, plenty of padding. Appears to be well made. Goes great with my Diamond Backs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing To start I have seen a lot of people complaining about the straps failing. If laced properly they are great! This is a very durable insurance for you’re favorite glass. If fit properly and used correctly there amazing. The only flaw I’ve found is I like a bit more storage in my front area. they are comfortable and easy to get on and off. Adjustment is a breeze as well. I would recommend these to anyone. And again the warranty speaks for everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great case and warranty I got the case about 3 weeks ago with my Diamondback HD binos. Great way to keep my binos safe and secure against my body. A week after getting them, I melted a hole through the case on my heater in my blind. I called up and they said it was covered by the warranty but they would be back ordered and be a few months to get. A week later the case showed up with a free hat too. Amazing warranty and customer service. Sold on Vortex from here on out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For birders and hunters alike I am a pretty intense birder (i.e. nerd about birds) and I wouldn't leave home without the vortex GlassPak. It is multi-functional in that when I have my bins out of the pack I can use it for note and guide books, this is a great idea for any biologist that does field work. But, if I want my bins protected while getting through the thick stuff it does the job no problem. Would recommend to anyone, although now I'm eyeing the Guide BinoPack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not perfect but still good quality Received as a gift. The “safety” harness that attaches to your binoculars are awful and I won’t be using them. Thankfully I was in my home and my Binos landed on soft carpet not rocks . The harness itself could have been better but the pack itself is nice and seems very durable. Definitely room to improve ! Otherwise I wouldn’t discourage people from this just don’t rely on the slick ribbon bino straps .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design! I’ve had this pack for almost a year now. It’s gone with me to Montana, Colorado, Georgia, Florida, and Utah for big elk, mule deer, monster white tail, Osceola turkeys, Easterns, pigs, and gator hunts! It’s been rained on, dropped, scuffed, and thrown. It’s handled it all meanwhile, protecting my 10x42 vortex Bino’s inside. Awesome, awesome place to Keep your glass from the harsh elements!
