What is the best type of scope cover to use? I had a Butler Creek type which was ok most of the time although it soon had a habit of the objective end not closing very well. When I last went out both ends opened during a 100 yard crawl through 2 foot high heather. So when it came using the scope it had to be wiped with a tissue before I could see anything. Luckily the young buck being stalked had no idea we were there and was soon on the grass.
Is there anything more durable on the market? I have looked at Leupold Alumina flip-back covers which retail at around £37 for each end. Are these any better and would they last longer than the Butler creek at around £10 for each end? The scope is a Swarovski 8 x 50. What do others use and is there anything better on the market?
