Like most of you, I think of how equipment can be made better or utilized while out hunting. The past few years, I have been packing my spotting scope on my pack without any protection or securing (see photo). I was constantly looking back to make sure I didn't drop my scope during my hiking.

I decided to "fix" this problem in the off season. I contacted Paul, a fellow Montanan, over at FHF Gear (http://www.fhfgear.com/) and described my vision as to what I needed. He was stellar in working with me and I'm excited to say that he was able to make my vision a reality (plus some). He far exceeded my expectations (just like he did with my first project).

Here is the scope / scope case as it now mounts to my pack.

I also took some photos of the scope being used on the tripod. He added a buckle to secure the sides and objective cover while spotting. Couldn't ask for more!

I would HIGHLY recommend any of you that needs something created to contact him.

very nice, so I get it straight its a cover for the spotter that clips into the pack? The cover stays on at all times and when you need it you just clip it off the pack and use then just clip it back and its secured? Also it looks like it has zippered lens covers....is that correct? nice vision seth smile.gif

Thanks guys.

Aaron - you are 100% correct in your assumptions. It seems to work pretty slick.

Branden - thats cool that you saw it at his place. Is the thing you guys working on for mass production or is it custom? Either way, best of luck with it. We both know that you'll have an A-1 top notch product when finished with Paul on your team.
