    Geovid lens caps

    Anyone got a source for objective lens caps for Geovids? I have a broken one and it's annoying me.

    I trimmed the rubber hinges off mine and tied the lens cap to the retaining coller with very heavy fishing braid, that was hundreds of hunting days ago now and no more issues.

    I use a cut off Bikini scope cover , I thread the strap through the loop that is left and stretch the cover over the lens on my Swarovskis , it is a lot cheaper and works
    Get as close as you can then six feet closer
