I'm after some covers for my new Leupold (can't afford the aluminium Leupold ones) and I've narrowed it down to the Hawke flip ups (I currently have these on my stalking rifle) or the Butler Creek rubber bikini covers. I do like the Hawke flip ups and they do have an amber colour which does help when shooting in the snow but they're twice the price of the Butler Creek. I did have a pair of Butler Creek flip ups but they were so fliimsy and rubbish I'm not sure if I should risk buying anything else made by them.

So, does anyone use the Butler Creek bikini style covers, are they any good and would you recommend them over flip ups?
