Hill People Gear Kit Bag. Good access, does not interfere with a pack, useful for other things.
I've had the HPG Kit Bag for several years, but just started using the lifter straps recently. Makes a huge difference with sidearm, binoculars, LRF, and everything else in the bag. Just have to release the two grimlocs to undock from backpack straps.Hill People Gear chest pack for sure. Original Kit Bag or the SAR Kit Bag. Another benefit it provides is you can "dock" the kit bag to your backpack making the chest pack feel nearly weightless.
I have thought about trying that setup for binoculars. If my Super Redhawk fit in the Kit Bag, I would have already done it.I carry a 7" tablet in the Medium Recon. It's awesome for navigation compared to a phone.
I also use the Recon to hold ammo and 10/22 magazines when shooting sage rats. I can top off and reload mags while keeping my eyes on the field.
With the binocular pouch and LRF pouch mounted to the front it looks a little goofy and bulky, but I like the versatility compared to a standard bino chest purse.
