    Re: How do you protect your scope?

    I use a neoprene cover on my Nikon scope. My friend just picked up a Swarovski Z5 and he got the front flip up cap but Swarovski doesn't make any rear caps so he also bought a neoprene cover to go over the setup.

    For cleaning .. a can of air duster in camp or your truck works great ... Emzone air duster ...and N-A air blower works great and fits in the pack nicely ... blows the crap off nicely.

    Neoprene cover when hiking in. Keeps it clean and scratch free.

    When hunting, nothing. I dont see a need for flip cover things or any of that. I've hunted blacktails in pouring rain plenty and have never wished I had any covers.

    The glass coatings nowdays keep the rain sliding off nicely

    Been useing the same hard rubber capped bikini covers for 40 years. A flick of the thumb and there off. Made in Oregon I think, l would like to get some more but cant find them.
    Man glitter is sawdust, glue, silicone, paint, welding holes in shirts is just a extra.

    No one on there death bed ever said; I should have spent more time at work.

    On my Leo's I pony up and get the alumina covers. Once you try them there is no going back. I imagine swaro's covers are just as good.
    If they don't make a cover for your model, the next best are the Tenebraex covers. While not as good as say the alumina covers, they are hands down better than the vortex or butler covers. They still have a decent way of attaching to the scope.

    Hey Guys

    Weather depending I will run my Leupold Neoprene Scope cover, if its going to be lots of hiking through brush and rain I always have my SOLO Cover over my rifle I find that combination never allows anything to get into my scope. Not sure if our Guns would have made the last trip with out the rifle covers with the amount of rain we received for 7 days. When it was time to take my caribou the cover came off in a couple seconds and rifle was at the ready position.

    That explains why I can't find a rear cap anywhere. Lol. That is weird IMO.

    Usually butler creek flip caps but one november it was just pissing rain and yup all the humidity got behind the cover so it was really useless, would have been better off to not have a cover that day so I'm undecided at this point.
