I had a similar problem. I had a very nice one for some years bought at “The birding shop” in Melbourne but it accidentally got left behind when it got tangled up in the life vest I had on, that I had to take off quickly, on leaving the boat, during a day boat trip on Palawan Island in The Philippines. I bought a very strange broad band neck strap in the mall there, so that I had something on which to hang my binoculars but it is more suited for a camera. Later when I got home. I sought and bought a replacement on-line harness but nowhere near as good.

Hi all,

Does anyone know of a place in Canberra where I can buy a "shoulder 
harness", as opposed to the usual neck strap, for my binoculars? I need
to replace the one I bought in Ecuador several years ago, on one of Ian
Fraser's most excellent trips, that has now stretched so much that I can
no longer adjust it and it is held in place by two small safety pins.

Thanks in advance,
