Customer Ratings & Reviews
I like how they fit and function
I have used Butler Creek in the past and got along fine with them but since I had a Vortex Scope and needed scope covers decided to give Vortex covers a try. They are a bit bulkier than Butler creek but seem to be better built, and the way they are constructed fit very well over scope lenses. Positive open and close.
The cap tough and effective
The objective cover has survived a hunting season with me, and it is still operative and attached. It works well. Now, if Vortex could make their eye piece work similar, It would be a great set.
I have purchased this front lens cover many times
I am using these in multiple sizes on multiple scopes. Easy to install and stays put on high-recoil rifles. Other products move, close, or just fall off.
Best on the market
I use these on a tactical rifle. They are highly durable, And very functional. They may not have some "designer" features, but for a serious-use application, these guys are down and dirty, reliable.
Another Good Product From Vortex
I've come to rely on Vortex for all my optics needs; I have Vortex scopes on all of my weapons. Not to say that there aren't other scopes that are not as good, or even better, but for the price, quality, and the no questions asked VIP Warranty, you can't go wrong with Vortex.
These Vortex flip-up scope caps are excellent - strong, heavy rubber and plastic construction of quality materials, and the opening/closing mechanisms feel like they will last a lifetime. I am using them on a Vortex Strike Eagle 4-24x50, and as a Vortex product, they fit like they were made for it! The Vortex flip-up objective cover fits the 50mm objective perfectly. My only caution if you use these on a bolt-action rifle - when you cycle the bolt, be aware of how close it is to the eyepiece, as it may rub on the eyepiece cap. This is a consideration for any scope cap and isn't unique to the Vortex product. These caps are strong and function well - quality gear.
After years of broken butler creek scope covers, Vortex came out with seemingly unbreakable covers with a lifetime warranty; three position fold flat ability and dope friendly eyepiece cover.
I got this for my vortex 3x9x50 scope and they work great. A tight fit but they hold rock solid. They open and close easy too.
This is the only product review I have ever written, but I felt compelled to do so. I have been searching for a more durable scope cap option that doesn't cost $100, and these are exactly what I wanted. I've used Butler Creeks before, and while they performed ok, I always wished for two improvements: More robust construction and lids that folded back flat to prevent obstructing my view over the rifle. These Vortex caps are absolutely a home run. All my rifles will eventually wear them. Vortex is listening to what shooters want. With these scope caps and some of their riflescope features, it's like I designed them myself!
Seem very rugged
I have used Butler Creek lens caps in the past, but wanted to give these a try. They seem to be much more sturdy than the Butler Creek, and I will likely buy these in the future. Have not had any cons... Give them a try!
