In preparation for my first African hunting trip this summer, I just purchased a new pair of binoculars. I went with Leica Trinovids in 8x42. Given the other equipment I needed to buy as well airfare and trophy fees, this seemed like a reasonable balance of cost and performance. I now need a case for them. I was thinking a hard case would be good to store and transport them in, but it may make more sense to go with a nice combination harness and soft case. For use on my domestic hunts, that is not ideal for me, as I usually carry a handgun in a chest rig, but I am not planning to take a handgun on my Africa trip. What have others used? What works well for transport and protection, both while in transit and in the field? Thanks.
