    Binocular objective lens covers / flip ups - recommendations

    A potential binocular purchase second hand lacks original objective covers so I'm looking at alternatives and would welcome recommendations and comment if you have direct experience (not interested in BCs !) - thanks, S

    Warning/observation:

    I purchased a set of yellow tinted see-through Bushwhackers for my Leica Duvids so I could deploy in a hurry. It was only when I got them home I realised that placing a further lens in front of the objective renders them impossible to focus without flipping them out the way!

    I now use a mil-spec bino bra that fully supports and protects them.
