Bushnell Vault Optics Protection System ($70)

For the western hunter who finds themselves constantly glassing, Bushnell’s new Vault Optics Protection System is worthy of a much closer look. This modular binocular chest harness provides easy access to your glass in the field, all while offering a high level of protection to keep your lenses shielded from abrasion. With an ultra-quiet forward open magnetic lid, you can quickly access up to 12×50 or smaller binoculars with the included riser. The lid can act as a shelf when open to keep essential items accessible with the internal mesh pocket.

The Vault’s magnetic closure securely retains your binos in the pack when closed, allowing you to confidently and stealthily move around during spot-and-stock situations. The Vault will even secure your binos within the pack when upside down. The Vault features a series of elastic reinforced mesh pockets for neatly organizing wind checkers or mouth calls. A feature we really love is a padded slip pocket on the backside of the main compartment for your smartphone, tags, license, or other documents. The Vault’s modular design can also be used as a stand-alone harness without the pack. An optional Vault LRF pouch uses the same magnetic closure and can easily connect to the main Vault pack.
