Re: Do you use an Scope Cover ?

Most of my hunting is in pretty dusty conditions, so a cover is mandatory to protect the lenses. I use a "scope coat" as they protect the scope well and are easy to get off with a single movement before a shot.

I use the scope jackets now because of the more complete protection of the scope. Plus they are so quick to take off.

I also use SCOPE COATS, they protect the scope best. Really like them for protecting the scope from rubbing in the gunvault as well as during outdoor use. Two weights of neoprene, the heavy tactical design is good for big scopes and protects the action, the lighter one I use for hunting scopes. I pull them right over Butler Creeks.

Always. It's a must item in my inventory.

The best I've ever tried are the one by Devtron.

Just out of curiosity, how do your butler creeks get in the way hunting? Are you talking about the flip up's?

The flip up caps are always flipping up and flopping around when you don't want them to.

The scope coat is great.
