    I'm looking for a binocular strap for hunting that won't flop around while I'm moving. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Check out a Bass Pro Shops or Cabelas, or their websites. They carry one that holds it securely against your chest so it doesn't rattle around. Less than $30, as I recall.

    I'm not sure I understand the question.

    Anyway, here's what I do. I have a pair of cheap Tasco/Bushnell (whatever) mini-binocs in 10x21. I put the strap around my neck and then tuck them into my left chest-pocket of my hunting coveralls. When I where a hunting vest, I tuck them under the vest.

    Second vote for it , it's called "BinoSystem Binocular Strap" works great.

    You may have problems if you want to "go prone" but otherwise it holds close to the chest, quickly comes up to view, and makes no noise.

    That sounds like it would work for me but let me clarify the question. I have seen binocular straps that have the normal strap to go around your neck and also a strap that goes around your chest to prevent them from bouncing around while manuevering. I believe the chest strap has a quick detach so that you can undo that strap for viewing then reattach it for stalking. I was looking for any feedback on success/failure with specific brands. Thanks. :)

    I second this! This system is the best I have seen.
