    Just received this and like a few other reviews, the cap would not stay closed. I looked at it closer, and realized that the little paper cheat sheet in the cap was pretty far forward, and was preventing the base from snapping into place. I just push the paper cheat sheet so that it was as deep in the cover as possible (it doesn’t seem to fit all that great in the cap, and I thought about just pulling it out). This allowed the snap to securely attach to the base to stay closed. Overall it seems very nice.

    I docked a star, because the paper cheat sheet is poorly fitted.

    Up until now, I’ve always used another companies flip up scope caps. I’ve always felt that there was much room for improvement though, but I’ve never been able to find exactly what I wanted for lens protection without paying $80 a cap. Finally, I found the vortex defenders. VERY ruggedly built, they fold back out of the way and don’t block the view of your knobs while keeping cheek weld, fit/seal very tight and they stay closed in your rifle case during transport. And all for a small price tag that you’ll only have to pay for once due to the great life warranty (Even though I couldn’t imagine these things ever breaking). What else could u want?

    Vortex continues to impress. The fit and build quality are impressive. Easily opened and closed, plus they stay closed without too easily being inadvertently opened. With two opening positions, both with a positive catch, you can see your customized DOPE card or have them fully opened for a less obstructed view.

    I purchased 3 of these for use on 3 different Vortex Viper HS scopes. 2 – 2.5-10×44 and 1 – 6-24×50 and they fit very well. Optimally, the adjustable ocular lens will still move. Keep this in mind as adjustments may be needed to get the preferred alignment of the cover. These are not small, or low profile but what they lack in being discreet is made up for by the quality and suggested durability.
