Great for compacts
Michael H. from Houston TX
I ordered these for my Swarovski 8x25 folding compacts. They fit OK as is but while the loops stay attached to the barrels well, the cover piece itself tends to fall off the end of the barrel and they hang down. However they can be easily modified to fit well. I don't understand why any ocular cover comes with a split bracket strap attachment on one of the sides. So I cut the split brackets off all mine and save the pieces (yes I AM A NUT!). You can carefully glue a piece or two from the removed split bracket ocular cover inside the objective cover piece itself and voila, they stay attached. So 5 stars because Swarovski doesn't provide lens covers for their compacts and you really should have them. And as other reviewers note they will fit other compacts right out of the box.
These Lens Covers Work
Chuck from United States
The first reviewer, Ken, says it all perfectly. I have Steiner 10.5x28 Wildlife binoculars which do not come with objective lens covers, nor does Steiner offer any. Going to Africa in July, so I needed covers. I measured the outside diameter, and finally found these covers. They fit perfectly, and I expect them to hold up during the trip. I don't know why Ken didn't give the covers 5 stars, but I certainly am!
Fits like a charm and easy to use
Ken from Orange County, CA
Tethered Obj Lens Covers were order to fit a 8 X 25 set of binocs given to me as a present. I measured the outer dimensions of the Obj Lens and used the data from your website to estimate the size of the covers. It worked beautifully and covers are much better than the detached versions that came with the binocs. Would recommend them to anyone who wants to protect their investment from scratches and prying fingers of little kids in the family. They fit a bit snug, which is all the better for keeping the lens protected. The covers do not appear to collect/attract dust through static electricity like the detached originals.
