I've just received my new Kuiu binocular harness, ordered from the USA based on its reviews. 

 

I want to use it with my new (2019) Swarovski EL Range 8 x 42 bins.

 

On opening the package, I've fallen at the first hurdle: The securing of the Kuiu harness to the bins depends on the bins having a permanent loop attached to each barrel. The straps of the Kuiu thread through said loops. Unfortunately, the new Swarovskis have only a flush-mounted pin arrangement for attaching their own strap:

I can't even detach the paracord from the Swarovskis' own neck strap to connect to the Kuiu, as it's held inside a sealed buckle-type arrangement.

 

Am I missing something, or do I have to fork out £15 to send the Kuiu back to the States?

There are adapters that cost a fiver a pop,

 

bushwear sell them. 

 

I find this proprietary nonsense really frustrating as I’d quite like to be able to use any harness I want after forking out considerable sums for the binos. They could at least be included.

The answer is simply to email Swarovski, and the lovely Cornelia will send you a pair of strap loop connectors free of charge, direct to your home (as I've now found out).

I will stop being grumpy, fair play to them!
