      I was looking for a good set of tethered lens covers for my new 10x42mm Leupold Wind River Cascades. After looking around at other manufacturers I decided on the Vortex lens covers due to the fact that these medium covers are made for objective lenses with an outside diameter of the barrel being 53mm. With the Wind River Cascades having an outside diameter of 52.6mm it's as close to perfect fit as you can get. They work great! Fit like a glove. Would absolutey buy another set if needed! If you have 10x42mm Leupold Cascades... these are the lens covers for you!

                    Bought these for a pair Leupold Arcadia, older style without the texturing(Not the new BX-2). They fit perfect. 1000x better then the covers that come with the binos. Must have if you want to keep the glass clean.

                                    They fit my 10x42 Nikon Monarch ATB's nicely. The binocular manufacturers should all be including these rather than the cheap non tethered plastic ones they use.

                                      The lens caps on my bins fell off 6 months ago while in the field. I was worried about scratches, but looks I won't have to any more.

                                      Q1: I have a pair of Leupold 10x42 Acadia binoculars and looking for a pair of lens caps similar to item #SHL153. My question is will this product slip over the outside of my binos and allow me to use the flip down caps?

                                      A: They are designed to flip down and dangle with viewing, you'll have to measure your O.D. of the objective lenses to make sure they will fit.
