Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lens covers When comparing this one against any others the quality ,design and ruggedness of this pair will win by far. They can be tilted/folded in a forward(objective lens cover) or backward (exit front lens) over the scope giving you a clear line of sight of your pheriperal and allowing the shooter the clearly see the turret adjustments position without changing position from your favorite stock weld. I had used mines through out the years while cleaning the rifle and the took all kind of scratches from cleaning rods etc that could had landed on the lenses damaging the coating. They will protect the scope from developing mold from been exposed to rain .Great products for a great price and Vortex VIP replacement warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex Defender scope flip caps In my experience with Vortex products... difficult to put into words how impressed I am with so many facets of this company, the products are cutting edge, intuitive, aesthetically pleasing, customer service is out of sight. All my delivery times of been fast and problem free. The warrantees are solid and without question. My personal experience with decades in special operations, military acquisitions and law enforcement give me unique perspective on equipment and procurement. My recent purchase of the defender flip up caps shows me the incredible development skills of this company… 100% satisfied on all levels

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Cap!! Having used other caps for a few years and never having one last more than a year, I picked up one of these a few weeks back and am very impressed. It's easy to get on and off the scope if you're trying to, but there's no way it's popping off accidentally. The opening mechanism is quiet and even more importantly it seems very sturdy. A little prying this way, a little bending the other way, and this cap isn't even bothered by it. I'd moved away from scope caps over the last year as I got sick of breaking them but after using this one I'll be picking up more for my other rifles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent features that work. I received my caps a few weeks ago. I have used them on the range in sub-freezing weather and at a Long Range match with high winds kicking up lots of fine dust. These caps kept the image through my Vortex PST crystal clear without a ton of dust distorting my view. I like the fact that the cap has tabs on each side that can be used to flip it up. The springs used in this cap are great this thing flys up and out of the way. The rubber part grips my sun shade tightly and does not move. Even in the cold weather the caps are not brittle and stay flexible. Once again Vortex has put out a great product!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Completely fail under cold and damp conditions The tension / adhesion that holds these covers fails completely under cold and wet conditions. In approximately 20 degree snowy weather this 3rd rifle season here in Colorado (the type of weather you might want to have a scope cover for), both this and the smaller objective cap slipped off multiple times during the course of a single hunt. Attempting to deploy the flipping action often removed the scope cover from the scope. Having a piece of equipment fail multiple times during the course of closing on a deer was an unnecessary distraction and could have ruined the opportunity. The larger objective also slipped off and was lost in the long hike back carrying the quartered deer. If you are hunting in potentially cold and damp / snow conditions look elsewhere, these caps are a hinderance rather then an assistance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well! Just make sure of sizing prior to purchasing Flip cap works well with my Razor HD GEN II 4.5-27X56 optic. Was a perfect fit, works as it should and flips up easily with spring assist, and clips shut and stays shut without any issues. Just pay attention to sizing, and it should fit just fine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could be better I have these for my 4.5-27x56. The problem is that the objective cover wants to come off when trying to flip open. This happens about 70% of the time. Vortex needs to make a real lens cover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Very Close to Perfect. I love how the 50mm fit's onto my PST, however when opening the objective end it sometimes moves around. This has never caused an issue, but is something to watch for.
