Binocular Lens Covers
« on: March 11, 2017, 06:07:02 PM »
I have a new pair of Bushnell Binoculars and the lens covers aren't very good.  Is there a better after market product available.  The original ones fall off.

Thanks!

This is a good place due to extensive inventory. It is where I got some of my riflescopes, camera etc


I get a kick out of buying stuff for my guns from a store in the heart of commie libeal NYC

I just ordered theses for my Binos. On some of my smaller objective scopes I can use them. Maybe they will come out with these to fit my 50mm objective scope

Hoytman62 - that is a very good question.....humm....when I take my binoculars to the stands with me in a fanny or back pack, I normally don't use the lense covers!!! I will clean the rifle scope and the binos and the rangefinder with a Zeiss Wipe about every other day....once I set my binos, I generally will leave the lense cover back in the truck....but that is just me...I do keep them in the original case after they are used.

For now, I am testing the Zeiss Terra Ed and the Redfield Rebels. I keep the covers on these binos when not in use...but come hunting season, you can bet I will take a set of two and throw them in my fanny of back pack and will not use the covers on them at all....

But the question should be is why doesn't the manufacturers supplying better eye cups and objective cups and better carrying cases!
