Gear Review: Bino Dock – You’ll Want Two

I don’t know how many times I’ve picked up a piece of gear and said, “why didn’t I think of that?” If I had to bet the answer would be a lot. When I opened the box containing the Bino Dock (BD) I had had one of those moments. Over the years, I can’t count the number of times I’ve been out scouting the ranch or been on the water and watched my binos take a tumble on the floorboards, or worse, out the door when I jumped out to get a gate. When I was on my dad’s boat as a kid, I watched a pair of very expensive stabilized binoculars go flying when we hit a rogue wake. It wasn’t the fall that was expensive, it was the landing that broke the lenses, causing my Pop to string a collection of adjectives together that has only been rivaled by my Drill Instructor when our platoon failed inspection.

The guys at Bino Dock have created a product that will keep your binoculars safe and easily accessible in any vehicle or boat that has a cup holder to put it in. I’ve used it in my Jeep while checking on cattle on the ranch — this also doubles as scouting for Mule Deer or multitasking, as I like to call it. I’ve transferred the BD to the side by side and with the safety strap engaged, I don’t have to worry about my binos falling out while transferring the BD from vehicle to vehicle or when we hit a big bump. The BD comes with three heavy-duty bands that allow for fitting the base into all sizes of cup holders. The head is also easily adjustable so you fit to any type of vehicle. The only downside is my son now has easy access to my binos and I have to fight him for them from time to time.

With an MSRP of $59.99, you can buy a couple of them so all your vehicles have one in it. I’ve got a buddy who owns a boat and I know what I’m getting him for his birthday.
