Do you use a sun shade on your scope or not?

Probably been covered before but many new ones here now and I am still up in the air about using one.
Not weight but it does get in the way a bit.
Sunshade or not?

We have the Leupold ARD’s which work good while adding minimal length to the scope.….but, they are in the daypacks and not used full time!

The only real negative is loss of light during twilight periods. We only use them when we will be facing into a rising or setting sun for a while. Other than this situation….they merely live in the daypack!

It appears that they may be for a limited type of scope though! memtb
