What's the first thing to get lost when you take your binoculars out in the field? The loose plastic caps provided by many manufacturers. These tethered lens covers are just what you need!
- Tethered lens cover stays securely on the objective lens.
- Rubber material is durable for seasons of satisfying use.
Note: This objective lens cover is sold individually and fits snugly over the objective lens of Swarovski 42mm EL SLC binoculars.

Good purchase, this lens cover fits perfectly, and the price is reasonable considering my investment in Swarovski EL binoculars. I bought an extra lens cover to leverage the $4.95 shipping cost.
It fit fine

Lost my lens cover and this worked just fine at a good price.
Not best fit for EL Swarovision 10X42

RE: Swarovski EL Swarovision 10X42s:
Although the cover does fit onto the binocular body fine it's different than the one that came with it that I lost. The cup is deeper and hits the hinge in the middle of the binocular so it's not as tight a fit but it does cover the lens without popping off so it will work for you. It's just not as cool as the ones that came with it.

This replacement fit perfect! Just like the original.
I received my order in just a few days. Great service!!
Lens Cover as advertised

The objective lens cover is identical to the original received with the purchase of the Binoculars. Would have given a 5 star rating except, at $14, it is overpriced. However, all web sites investigated had the same price. Eagle Optics provided free shipping while some others didn't.
Good objective lens cover

I have had my Swarovski EL's for over a decade now (I think). The lens covers for the objective lens occasionally get old and crack, and on one occasion I lost one somehow. The price has gone up over 50% since I last ordered, but the quality is still excellent. Eagle Optics' service is fast and reliable as usual.
great to have it again...!

I got one of this lens cover lost in my last Venezuela trip guiding birding tours in April 2010... immediately after returning I ordered one to EagleOptics and swiftly I got it hanging from my Swarovski ELs.. love to have them because when I am driving I leave my bins in between the drivers seat and the emergency break and sometimes they just move when driving in rough terrain; so this way my lens glasses are ALWAYS protected!..
Swarovski EL lens cover

Exactly like the original piece. Not sure how the first one was lost. Functions well. Rather expensive for what it is. Would purchase again if it became necessary.

Thank you very happy with the lens cover...
Swarovski Lens covers

Eagle Optics was the only supplier who have this item in stock. I lost one lens cover in a Costa Rican forest preserve. The lens covers are manufacturer originals and fit perfectly. On the negative side, They are unduly expensive as are all Swarovski products.

I've been using my Swarovski EL 8.5x42 binoculars for several years. In that time I have gone through several sets of these objective covers. The normal failure mode is to break where it attaches to either the cover or the ring. Both of these joints are at tight right-angles. This creates a concentration of stress at that point; this is basic engineering. If they added a bit more rubber at these joints, making it gradual - or perhaps I should say filling in the sharp corner with more rubber - the tendency to break at those points would be much lower. Again, basic engineering. The mold for making these parts will be very expensive, but since the idea is to add more rubber that could be done (in theory) by removing material from the mold rather than starting over. Swarovski HAS to know about the problem; I do not understand why they have done nothing (that I can see at any rate) to address it.
The last one of these I have has found a new failure mode - it kept falling off. The ring didn't grab the barrel tightly enough. My solution, such as it is, was to put the ring from a broken one on above the complete one. That one is very tight, and it only intrudes a bit on the cover going on all the way.
But it is still the only game in town, so I guess I will keep spending money on replacements as long as I use the ELs.
