Scope Covers for Nightforce with 56mm Objective?

Hey guys,
Just got my my first Nightforce in this week. After many days of drooling on it, I realized I didnt have any scope covers to fit it. It is the 5.5X22X56 and I cant find a 56mm cover at Cabelas, Sportsmans Warehouse, or Bass Pro. Cant find them online either. I have always used the Butler Creek flip ups, but am not opposed to going with something else if it works well. Thanks for the help.

    I had the Butler Creek Flip Ups on mine but it would not stay closed. It was constantly popping open. I ended up sending them back.

    ?? Whats wrong with the bungy one that came with the scope??
    Thats what I use!
    When you turn the power ring the caps are a PIA.

    I have B.C. flip caps on my 58mm USO that work just fine... it was kind of hard to find a place that had them that large though. I think I ended up getting them from SWFA.

    Ian M recommended Scope Coats and I tried one and now I have three of them.

    Once again, you all came through for a newbie! Thanks again for all of the help guys. I have never used the scope coats. Do they pull off easily while hiking and stalking in dense vegetation? How about moisture issues? I have tried using the "bikini" covers that I had on other scopes, but they often were pulled off when stalking in heavy brush or downed timber. I ended up with lots of snow on my lense.
