I took a look at them.....With the amount of photos I take in a outing It looks like it would wear at your armpits after a while of shooting with that band sliding round and about.

Mine doesn't chafe at my armpits at all, and the band doesn't get adjusted once I have gotten it right. I have the one from the Wild Bird Center, with that name brand on it.

I think I'll take a look at them at the sports store. I see online that ours probably carries them....If nothing else it may work out real well in the car slung over the passenger headrest to keep it from jumping off of the seat to play in the floor grit! Reason why my lens is already scratched big time!

The August POM in now ended.

Yesterday, I picked out all the contenders, downloaded them and sent them to my POM folder so I could make final decisions, and the pix disappeared! ***poof***
If I can't find them today as I get ready to leave town, I may just have to announce a winner. Stay tuned!

I think quite a few photos deserved it...I don't know how I'd make a decision.

Rockstar robber fly, I like it. Great alliteration.
