Use the right harness for your trip

Use the right harness for your trip

September 07, 2022 , Vanguard World

When you’re using your binoculars or camera for everyday use, a comfortable neck strap is great, but sometimes you need another solution. For longer treks or frequent usage, spreading the weight of your optics or camera across your shoulders with a proper harness can make a huge impact on your comfort and energy levels throughout the day. For shorter trips, a wrist strap is an excellent way to prevent you from dropping your valuable gear while keeping it ready for that elusive shot.

The problem is changing between the options. Removing the traditional strap from your last trip, and then replacing it with the new strap is a time consuming and fiddly process that means people normally don’t bother.  This means they’re not using the best solution for the trip.

The VEO OPTIC GUARD Collection allows you to select and set up the best solution for your day in seconds with Vanguard’s innovative new patented clip lock quick-release system.

Designed to fit most optics and cameras with eyelets for straps, simply attach the cinch clips provided to your chosen optic or camera, and slot it into the cinch buckle of the strap of your choice.  This will be held securely when in use, and to release it, simply press the button and remove it.

The harness options include:

The VEO Optic Guard NS Neck Strap, available in black (BK), brown (BR) or green (GR).  These are neoprene straps with a non-slip inner lining that are great for everyday use, and can be adjusted in length from 84mm to 1090mm for maximum comfort. The brown and green straps have brown real leather finishing, with PU leather on the black. Each strap features enhanced stitching for maximum security, and is supplied with four cinch clips so you can set up more than one device to use the strap with, such as your binoculars and your camera.

The VEO Optic Guard WS Wrist Strap, available in black (BK) or brown (BR).  These can be tightened around the wrist to keep them secure.  The brown strap has real leather finishing with the black having PU leather. Each features enhanced stitching for maximum security and are perfect for keeping your optics or camera safely to hand on shorter trips. But for those with a waterproof camera such as an Olympus Tough, the black model allows you to keep your camera to hand when snorkelling or diving (but always rinse off and dry the strap thoroughly after use).  Each wrist strap comes with two cinch clips.

The VEO Optic Guard H Harness is the no frills harness solution that is focussed on binoculars, available in black (BK) or brown (BR).  Elasticated straps go across each shoulder connecting to a silicone pad (on black harness) or an embossed real leather pad (on the brown harness) which helps spread the weight across the shoulders and back over longer distances. The straps can be tightened for your comfort, and the height of your binoculars (or other device) easily adjusted. Each strap features enhanced stitching for maximum security and is either finished with real leather, (brown), or PU leather, (black).  Each harness comes with four cinch clips.

The VEO Optic Guard H DLX Harness is the harness solution that delivers maximum comfort when using your binoculars over extended periods, available in black (BK) with PU leather finishing and brown (BR) or green (GR) with real leather finishing. Elasticated straps attach to a wide neoprene shoulder system with a non-slip inner lining that goes round the shoulders through a robust metal buckle.  The lower elasticated straps can be adjusted for your comfort, while the neoprene shoulder system spreads the weight comfortably across the shoulders and upper back, allowing you to carry your optics or camera for long periods with minimum effort. On the metal buckle there is a third strap that allows you to attach your optics or camera, and this can be adjusted by up to 115mm for the most comfortable position. Also included are a chest strap that can be attached to help keep the shoulder straps pulled together, and two elasticated loops that can be attached to the metal buckles on the harness and slipped around your binoculars, or the lens of your camera, when needed to hold your optics or camera more securely against your chest as you move between locations.  Each harness comes with four cinch clips.

So, if you don’t want to use a neck strap for every trip, but don’t want the kerfuffle that changing a traditional strap entails every time, then check out the VEO Optic Guard Collection and #makeupyourownmind
