Cabela's Teck-Lite Binoculars Harness
Hey guys look we wanted to do a quick video it's been a almost a couple weeks since I've uploaded had a lot of family stuff going on. And just been taking care of people so but look. Iwanted to talk about. This vinyl harness and actually I've I've been holding off on getting a vinyl harness for a long time. Because honestly the way. Ihunt believe I don't use binoculars a lot. Ilike to stay really light minimal gear. Ifigure you know on my rifle I'm packing something that's got up to the nine power magnification. Ineed to look at something some people will say oh. You should be pointing your rifle to look at stuff yeah. Idon't know when I'm up in the mountains. Ilook over a thousand yards away. Some elk I don't think it's too dangerous to throw my rifle up. And have a look at him but anyway. Ifinally decided to bite the bullet. And go with a harness. And a vinyl case one of the reasons. Iheld off doing it too was.
Because for archery hunting I'm really worried. This could get in the way of a shot. You know I was to draw I'm left-handed so. This way and had to. You know shoot really hard to my right I'm worried. That the string could hit. Imay not use this during archery but. Ican definitely use. It during rifle and as well. You know just when scouting and stuff but. Idecided to do I wanted to go with a really compact setup. Idon't have big binoculars. Idon't like big bulky binoculars. Some research and found out about the badlands by no C. And C is for compact so it's a compact case. It won't hold great big honkers I'll get into. Another minute but it's. You know smaller more compact fits tighter against your body.
Than a lot of the other cases. Ialso went with badlands. Ilike the magnetic closure so. This is magnetic right here around. It kind of the magnets are. It just closes up that better. Then a zipper or a clasp. You know I need to take off running or. What no everythings secured. Ihave to worry about. Some class but staying pulled down. Whatever that's just my preference so. Iwent with the vinyl see. And in here I have a set of 8 by 42 Diamondback vortex Diamondback hey by 42s. They will fit in there with the eye cups twist. They fit in there no problem with the eye cups up my son's running a set of Nikon Prostaff 3 s's very by 42 s they'll fit with the eye cups up but. We have a set of Nikon Prostaff 7s 10 by 40 2 s. They wouldn't fit so.
You got to be a little careful. You know you probably go to the store. And take your binoculars with. And make sure they'll fit in there but. This has turned out to be the perfect setup for me I've had. It out on some scouting trips. This winter pop these out check stuff out put. It right back it also has a little zippered pouch in here. You could probably put maybe your licenses. Something in there's not a ton of extra room at. And then on the sides there's kind of. Some little MOLLE webbing you could probably put a little compartment on there for your wind checker. Something like that of course it's fully adjustable. You can see the back it's got nice comfortable. This a couple weeks ago. Iwent up looking for some elk. Ihave my backpack over. Nothing was buying and her pinching it was very comfortable.
And my sternum strap came across right above. All worked out really well. Another feature these have. Iwas gonna take them bow hunting with. They actually have a little hanger here. You can hang your D loop off of course. It won't work during the video. You can hang your bow hands-free. You could glass and then just grab your bow again. And you're off and running so. Iprobably like when I'm bow hunting I don't see myself wearing these. Iworry about the whole string thing but at least ask. Something there that would work for someone. That was going to boho so again Badlands buy no see the cs4 compact it's really working out well for us. You guys take care of we'll talk soon.
Vortex® GlassPak™ Binocular Harness
6.75"H x 6.25"W x 3.75"D.
Wt: 8 oz.
Hey guys and girls Ross from gaming outdoors. Iam on New South Wales a commercial hunting property let. Me use the opportunity of super quick review of the vortex glass pack bio harness. If you've already seen our review of the vortex guide harness which is essentially the Big Brother of the glass pack you'll know. That the vortex harnesses are very robust made of good quality materials. That are gonna you know take. Some abuse in the outdoors. Iactually really like the guide. And harness the big daddy of. This but the only issue. Ifound with I am using the bow it's just not quite slim enough to comfortably draw back. And release so I actually use the guide. When I'm purely scouting but. When I'm doing a hunt. Now use the glass pack very comfortable. It uses the quick release straps over the neck. You can see on the back there's a crossover which gives. You solid comfort in terms of the access super easy just pull down on the elasticized band there lift up our coming by nose the cool thing about.
This is for the guide pack as well is. That the heavy straps. These quick release buttons. That attach to the harness the reason why I like those is. You don't have a harness with. These straps on you take your bio nose out. You have a fall bang there goes your binary. It saves you by nose. These straps are very worthwhile. And that's a that's a solid feature of these things on the sides there's two elasticized mesh pockets. Each side I use my wind checker there. And my phone with my um. And that's got my phone scope case on. It so that's quite bulky. And fits very nicely it's really tight I've never had. Even come close to you know jumping fences. Whatever never had even close to popping out so it's a very secure fit.
And on the back you know. How to keep I mean I'll keep my Adidas gaping adapters in there but. You can do all sorts of stuff that's just a mesh pocket as well so it's not waterproof but. You know it's good for keeping a snack. You know if you've got a smaller phone. If you've got them waterproofed check him out game on outdoors like condo. We sell a stack of these. All the other vortex products are on their go for your life thanks. Everyone keep adventuring
Vortex® Binocular Tripod Adapter
Take the load of binoculars off your arms and put it on a tripod. The steadiness of a tripod will help you spot small details you might otherwise miss. Quick and easy attachment is possible with a 1/4" threading at the top that attaches to any tripod-adaptable binoculars. A 1/4" x 20mm standard threading on the base fits directly into most tripods and car window mounts.
We use a pair of binoculars. And spotting scope together. One thing that really helps. Than packing two tripods is get yourself a good tripod. That has a head on it with a quick-release system so like. What we're doing right. Now is we're looking at. This face we're looking at these elk looking for deer. You know with the binoculars I've got such a large field of view it's so easy on my eyes. Ican really work this hillside over quickly. And then I want to. You know I want to get a closer look at the animal. Iwant to just get a closer look at the hillside. These quick-release Issam. Ican pop this off I've got a spotting scope arty set up with the correct shoe fur for this head. It just slides right in their like. You know granted I've got to make a. Few adjustments to the tripod. You can do it really fast so. You look in the hillside over through binoculars find something you want to get a little closer look slap. You know that pair of binos off of the tripod. That spotting scope on there to get those really a close-up a detailed look. You might need to decide. If you're going to go after the atom. Or maybe what you were looking at. You know you thought. It was a stick and who knows maybe. It is an antler off of a big buck. Or a bull like we've got over there right. Now so hey one of the features. You want to look for when you're choosing binoculars. You want to buy a pair of binoculars. That are tripod mount adaptable pretty much. All of them are Universal. Some don't have but. Most of them do or fairly universal thread size but on.
This pair of razors. Most vinyls like I said are real similar to. They work this cap simply screws off. And there's there's. Several companies that make tripod adapters but. You vortex makes a great. One for under 20 bucks. It screws right onto the front of your binoculars just like. And then you come out. One of those quick release plates. You can put it on your tripod just. Some a lot of guys overlook. Imean for less. Than $20 you shouldn't overlook. It really could mean the difference between a success. Or failure on a trophy home.

Vortex® High Country Tripod
Ht: 15" - 52.3".
Folded: 21"H x 3.8"W.
Wt: 2.2 lbs.
Hey guys its Mike with. Ireview gear calm in the mountains of central Utah again it's. Where I call home and. Iam up here taking a look at. And using the vortex high country tight tripod it's a lightweight tripod. That I got this year just for a couple backpacking trips I've I'm going to go on I've got. Some heavier duty tripods. That have the big you know heads on them. That stabilize the spotting scope really well but. Ijust wanted something smaller. That I could backpack with. And I kind of thing. This is the ticket I've got. This Swarovski 22 60 by 60 v spotting scope on. It and it seems to be about right for it. Now I don't think this would be a tripod. That you're going to go set up somewhere. And do hours and hours of glassing and be. You know super stable with. It but certainly doing. That when you're back packed in. This thing is ideal for it. Iwant to kind of go over. Some features with. You first you can see. That I've got this back leg of. This tripod even with the body I've got. It lined up if you take. It off of that alignment. And put it in this position. It can get a little bit tippy so it's just about right but you'll have to pay attention to get the tripod set up just right to be able to use. It you can see that it's got a ball head right here hopefully. You can see that which makes. This thing really easy to adjust I'm going to put up a little higher in a minute. And you can see how fluid. It is to scan with that scope with. That ball head it's got. These legs that adjust freely out to.
This point and then with the push of the button. They go out to one. More level a push of the button clear out almost flat. Now the other cool feature about. This tripod it's got. This Center post that. You can use for stability right so. If you raise this up higher it's got a hook on the bottom. You can put your backpack on. And then a little bit of wind really stabilize. It with that weight as well. Though it unscrews so. You can take the centerpiece off lay. These legs clear out flat as I'm going to do right. Now, so I've got that center post screw off. You can see screws off real easy. And those legs lay clear out. And with that that thing is very low to the ground. Because that center column disappears. And now let's say for instance. Ibeen shooting wanted. It down really low you have the ability to take. This tripod down super low. Or if you're laying down.
And spotting or just sitting on your butt. Or whatever you can take. That down super low which. Ithink is a great feature let. Me point out this cool thing as well. If you can see its kind of weird son but. You can see right here. That the way you attach the scope with a quick attaches with a screw on so. You loosen this right here. You just loosen that up. And then the quick disconnect slides forward. And slides backwards also to allow. You to move it forward. And back and get a little bit better angle. Or a little bit better balance. And it's got this pin on the side so. Once you unloosen it. You can slide it back slide. It forwards either direction. It still won't come clear out until. You depress this button. And release it so that's a pretty cool feature on. This tripod as well. How quick connect so. These little suckers really load up. Some features there's. That ball head that. Imentioned earlier right in there. That you can see so it's just got a super nice ball head that's really fluid.
You adjust it just by loosening this a little bit. And then you can easily adjust. It with the with just your hand, so I'm going to try. That right now look at. That I'm set up I just loosen. This a teeny bit it's still snug but. You can see that I can roll. That now in any direction really well pan. It this way panicked sideways tilt. It up and down and it's just got a really smooth adjustment with. That ball head and then just tighten. It back up and it stays pretty stable so. Once again that's the vortex high country really quick overview that's got a pretty good hike to. It too so you can adjust. All these legs out it's got four of them just pretty high so. You can even use this sucker standing up so. It gets high enough to stand up low enough to lay down the legs clear out good ball head it's just a good spotting scope for backpacking but that's about as big a spotting scope but.
Iwas use on it I wouldn't go. Any bigger that's about the big as its going to stabilize. And have any luck with. That Swarovski 65 hope. You enjoyed the review its Mike. If I review gear comm go online. And read more about.
