With all benefits of existing binocular harnesses (which also offer a good method of attaching mini/micro chest rigs), there are some disadvantages in their design.
Its straps become twisted – see picture below.
The whole system offers a limited ability to raise/lower attached item, either a binoculars or chest rig.
To improve listed above, we need to re-design the whole harness and change the attachment method. The existing figure-of-eight layout form is very advantageous, so it will be kept for future.
To force straps to lay flat, we will add a side detail, platform with D-ring for lower straps (while upper straps are sewn directly to platform).
