I'm headed back to Kodiak Island next spring where rain is an almost certain issue to deal with. I've used the flip open caps for many years, but want to know if there are other better options. The most likely situation will be starting the stalk with rain coming down and the need for lens protection, then at the time just before the shot the need to remove your caps or whatever protection you have quickly. One other consideration is that on my rifle/scope set-up clearance between the bolt handle and scope cap becomes an issue. So the need is something that is QUICKLY removable and having no bolt handle blockage or interference. What is best? thank you
I have some of the bikini covers they are small at first but stretch and remain larger and fit better after being on the scope for a while.they have a tab on the ocular cover for quick pull off. only a few dollars.
The neoprene covers are best as they cover the whole scope and keeps dirt, rain and snow off it and also out of the action too if the scope is mounted low. Like Jeremy, I also tether mine so it just hangs off to the side. I find these the best.
