Several of us in my group use the Alaska Guide Creations and really like them. I put my rangefinder in the little front pouch which keeps things tidy and handy. Wind-checker in one side pouch, and two extra rounds and a deer in the other. Small zippered pouch holds water purification tablets.
Nothing about the pack I don’t enjoy.
Me too except I put my GPS in one side pocket and extra batteries/shells in the other. I've been using it since 2010 and would replace it immediately if I lost it.
I have KUIU Pro with swaro el 10x50s. Second season now, great for rifle type hunts but with a bow it makes some freaky noises as I pull Binos out against the fleece liner. Might just need more use. They live in it and I have only pulled them out a dozen times.
I hate the harness on the AGC. I like my pouch high and tight. The AGC hangs down around yer belly button, while the Marsupial is like Goldilocks bear, 'juust riiight'..... That said, I like the AGC pouch when I hook it direct to the backpack shoulder straps and get it up where I like it, I just pitch the [bleep] harness in the pack.....
I recently purchased a Browning chest pack harness that works very well for me at less than$60. My first chest pack style so I can't speak of other brands just that this one has plenty of room and stays tight to the chest plus is very quiet which is a must for a stillhunter. I am not a brand connisuer I select gear purely on whether it fits me and my methods of hunting g. Good luck in your search and good gunting.
I have FHFs for my binos. 5 of them---and like them due to them being solidly built, fairly sleek and their harness allows it to ride up high on my boobies, not down on my gut. That said, they don't cover the binos up 100%, and if there is snow or dust blowing in sideways, it can build up on the ocular lenses when in the harness as a result. I have only had the issue 3 times that I can think of, but it has happened. Some brands totally enclose the binos, which would be nice.
I am not a fan of zippered opening systems for harnesses, and never could get used to the lid system or bulkiness of Alaska Guide Creations. The Marsupial looks intriguing with the magnetic closure but I haven't played with them and if I switch from FHF, it'll be to a fully enclosed system anyhow.
