    The Skout G2 is a lightweight and portable version of the G3 binocular harness. While it will not fail under the weight of any binoculars, we recommend mid-sized pairs or smaller for optimal use of the Skout G2.

    The Wanderer Side Binocular Holster is our most lightweight and portable system, simply securing to your belt for independent use. This system is also a modular addition to any of our carrier systems if you want one more pair of binos available in a fixed, comfortable position.

What's the maximum size this can handle?

Our harnesses are engineered to carry more than you can put on them. That being said your body can only carry so much weight and can only handle lenses of a certain length. For instance, a 600mm f/4 with its lens hood will probably be too long! For larger telephoto lenses we recommend securing the camera hardware to the lens foot.
