    Swarovski scope flip up caps - Best options?

    I'm getting sick of my scope fogging up with mist and water etc. Want to get some quality flip up caps to help with this.

    Needing a set for my Swarovski Z5 3.5-18x44.

    I'm not keen on the Butler Creek ones.

    I have heard that the AADmount ones are good??? Swarovski

    Any other recommendations?

    I used the genuine Swarovski Objective Lens Cap on my Z5 and it was entirely adequate. I've now swapped it onto my Z6 and find it works well. Unfortunately, for the Z5 you can't get a genuine OEM cap for the other end... for the Z5 you'll need to get an alternative for that lens.

    I don't like having caps on both ends myself, personal choice I guess, so I stick with the Objective Lens only.

    Vortex defender caps are another option.
