I received a set on Nikon Monarch 5 ATB 8X42 binoculars for Christmas they came with a neck strap but, would like to get a bino harness. The thing is I don't have a clue what would be a good choice that would have the correct attachment clips that would fit this particular set. All suggestions welcomed. :)

Crooked Horn Outfitters makes a good harness and there are a few others that are pretty close copies. The most important accessory IMO is the Bino Shield from Crooked Horn. They keep the glasses protected and tight to your body no matter what type of strap you use. Wouldn't carry a pair of binos without them.

I use the RedHead ones from BassPro and they work OK but I wouldn't mind seeing better options.

My only real complaint with the RedHead rig is that the elastic straps can let the glass bounce around uncomfortably when moving vigorously (e.g. running).

Great idea, now I need to measure my binoculars to see which size shield to get. Thanks!

http://www.alaskaguidecreations.com/index.htm is very good as is the the one from Badlands.

In easier events like a prairie dog shoot I like the S4 harness. http://s4gear.com/products/LockDownX

Spend the money on a harness that covers the lens. Optics aren't much good if you can't see through them.
