The hunters at ALPS OutdoorZ have spent enough time "outdoorz" to know that many a hunt has been foiled by noisy fabrics. That is why the year 2023 brings a new line of accessories designed to ensure maximum silence in the field while providing optimal protection from the elements, starting with that essential hunting accessory—the bino harness. They're calling it the DEADQUIET, but while the name is a clever play on words, the DEADQUIET itself isn't playing.
It all starts with a proprietary DEADQUIET fabric developed by ALPS OutdoorZ to create a bino harness that not only protects expensive optics from weather and environmental hazards, but is also quiet in operation. The layered fabric consists of a fleece exterior that effectively deadens the sound of contact with hands, brush and other clothing. The inside layer is a rugged suede that offers silent retrieval and replacement of binoculars, and exhibits a high wear resistance for years of hard use. Sandwiched between these layers is a waterproof membrane that keeps binos dry and protected in the harshest weather.
Built on a structured case design for added protection and support, the DEADQUIET Shield Bino Harness is adjustable for a perfect fit as clothing requirements change throughout the season. MOLLE webbing is integrated into both sides of the harness so that left- and right-hand archers and gun hunters can conveniently position a rangefinder, call or other attachments within easy reach without interference.
Additional features of the DEADQUIET Shield Bino Harness include: suede-lined shove pocket that can accommodate a phone, handgun or other gear; silent, zipper-free access; reinforced elastic tethers with silent swivels that can be easily adjusted or removed; bottom MOLLE webbing that is perfect for securing the ALPS OutdoorZ DEADQUIET Ember Handwarmer.
