Leupold Alumina Lens Caps

by David Hilton, from United States, GA Written on September 20, 2014
I ordered the Leupold Alumina lens caps (set) for my Mark 4 Mod 1 P5 scope. I mounted the scope on a Core-15 TAC III AR-15. I wanted decent lens cap covers for my scope to a) protect the lens and my investment; b) minimize the dust and unintentional finger prints, dirt, etc. While the Alumina line of lens caps are very expensive, one has to consider the cost/investment in the scope that you are trying to protect. In addition, the caps are metal, not plastic. The lens caps are threaded and attach directly on to the Objective and Eyepiece so you don't have to worry about them "slipping" of the outside of the lens. I bought the set that provides the correct size lens to match their respective end of the scope. If there is any complaint (very minor) I'd have to say it was finding the exact starting point to start turning the lens cap on my Eyepiece end. Several times the final stopping point, would place the "open" position of the lens cap in a place where I didn't want it to be. This can be remedied by trying different starting points for attaching the cover. You'll eventually get it perfect. These lens caps are a classic case of you get what you pay for. There are much cheaper plastic lens caps that will do the job, but the quality of materials, fit, finish (matches scope material) and bragging rights were my personal reasons for purchasing. The folks at OpticsPlanet.com do a great job of processing orders and getting your purchase in your hands as quickly as possib...

This is my first set ever so any and all help would be appreciated at this point since we leave for hunting before I can ship and send back so I'm gonna keep them anyway...

Awesome flip back lense covers

by C B, from United States, CA Written on September 9, 2014
These flip back lense covers are awesome! Instal was a breeze and they work flawlesly. I found them here cheaper than anywhere else. I wouldn't mount a nice leupold scope on a firearms without a set of lense covers, and these flip up covers are the best way to go....

Leupold Alumina Flip Back Objective and Eyepiece Lens Cover Sets

by jd, from United States, OK Written on September 9, 2014
Excellent product, Easy to use. The one negative was I had to remove the scope from the rings to install them. When threading onto the scope the tabs of the objective lens cover would not clear the barrel. This was not a big deal to me as I had not yet sighted in the scope....

Clean set up

by Jwall, from United States, TX Written on August 30, 2014
The flip back leupold covers are very clean looking as well as very useful to protect. I like them mostly because of the simplicity of use. I had a previous neoprene cover that I used during a rainy hunt to protect my optics but the second I needed to use the scope I couldn't get the scope cover off quietly and fast enough to take the shot and missed out on one of the biggest whitetails I have seen. Defenatly recommend these covers BC again simple to use and great protection...

Lens covers

by Larry, from United States, AZ Written on August 29, 2014
I like the fact tht the cover flips all the way back and lays flat. Of course it keeps the lens dry and free from dust and dirt. They are easy to operate and they will not get lost like other scope covers....

Perfect lens covers

by DandyDon, from United States, TX Written on August 26, 2014
Perfect fit, perfect function. Could not be happier. Have a set for all of my Leupold scopes.

Pricey - but well worth it.

If I had any complaints - would love for Leupold to make these covers to fit other manufactures scopes. Completely understand why they don't, but would still love to see it....
Pros:
  • Fit
  • Function
Cons:
  • Pricey!!!!!!
Best Used for:
  • hunting
  • Bench

Lack of instructions and pricey

by RayLee, from United States, CA Written on August 25, 2014
The lens covers are just what I needed for my two scopes (I bought two sets) and the quality is impeccable (exactly what you would expect from Leupold). That being said, even though the Optics Planet price is well below the suggested list price from Leupold they are still on the expensive side. Additionally, the lens covers do not come with instructions for installation. When installing my first set, I removed my scope for the mounts to facilitate the installation (and gain clearance from the barrel to rotate the lens cap) but in the process I discovered that it was not necessary to do this and fortunately I was able to install my second set of lens caps without removing the scope (which had recently been sighted in). Take your time and be patient. The caps function perfectly and rotate well out of the way of the scope optics so they do not interfere with light exposure of the objective lens....
Pros:
  • great quality
Cons:
  • None

Great flip covers

by yellowg, from United States, CA Written on August 3, 2014
These work really well with my Leupold VX-R 3-9x40mm. The magnets are a nice touch and stick in place until you lift up the covers. It goes well with the overall Leupold look. Kind of pricey, but you really can't put a price on protecting both lenses....

good protection

by Marc, from United States, CT Written on July 30, 2014
Good quality, but the scope may have to come off to install. it twists on the scope threads and depending on the mount, you may not be able to thread it on without taking the scope off and loss of zero. Otherwise the product is excellent. Get the combo kit to save money. OpticsPlanet had the best price I could find, quick shipping as well....

  • Quality
Cons:
  • None
