    Vortex E-10 reviews

    Defender Flip Cap Eyepiece is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fix for very tight caps that pull off I bought the cap yesterday for my vortex long-range scope. And right out of the box the cap was too stiff to pop open and it would almost slide off. I contacted support but then I realized the reason was the Caps were way too stiff is because the little lip on the cap was too big. I took a flat knife and gently scratched at the edge of the cap and in the inside of the mating surface. Then I proceeded to polish inside in outside lip and the cap now opens very easily and doesn't pull off with good tactile feel yet. I know this isn't ideal for new product but sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands when quality control is not 99%.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Completely fail under cold and damp conditions The tension / adhesion that holds these covers fails completely under cold and damp conditions. In approximately 20 degree snowy weather this 3rd rifle season here in Colorado (the type of weather you might want to have a scope cover for), both this and the larger objective cap slipped off multiple times during the course of a single hunt. Attempting to deploy the flipping action often removed the scope cover from the scope. Having a piece of equipment fail multiple times during the course of closing on a deer was an unnecessary distraction and could have ruined the opportunity. The larger objective also slipped off and was lost in the long hike back carrying the quartered deer. If you are hunting in potentially cold and damp / snow conditions look elsewhere, these caps are a hinderance rather then an assistance.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from So close These are a little more expensive than other brands, but being made by Vortex, I thought they'd fill the bill. They are well built, for sure, but the fit leaves a bit to be desired. The eye piece cover fits perfectly and operates flawlessly. The objective cover is another story. The cap will slip off my Viper 4 - 16 x 44, so it takes two hands to operate, one hand to hold the cover in place and the other hand to open the cover. That's pretty inconvenient, in my mind. I ordered the size recommended by Vortex too, so I'm feeling slightly frustrated by this. I'm giving them two stars because they do a good job of protecting the lenses, but operating them takes some effort and precious time if you have a trophy lined up.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tactical Pain I purchased a Vortex Viper HS-T 6-24X50 a few months ago and ordered flip caps to match. The eye piece cap is a huge hassle because it bends and flexes every time you try to open the cover. This issue may be due to the fact that the lens is not surrounded by a perfectly cylindrical eye piece and therefore has room to wobble. Either way, the cap does not seem engineered for the scopes even though they are the correct size.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not stay when opening Isn't tight enough on eye piece, comes off when you try to flip it open. slides forward when you go to close it. Bad fit

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Had high hopes. Didn't work for me Bought both the eyepiece and objective caps. After working with a rep to make sure I was getting the right sizes I have found that despite being correct for my Diamondback HP 3-12x42, these just don't work like they should. The collars are not tight enough to prevent the cap from slipping off the scope when being opened and one needs to use two hands to operate them. I get that they are tough, no question about that. However, in my usage, they have shown to be impractical and I had such high hopes for a product with the Vortex name on it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will Not Stay On I spent about $400 on these to put on all my Vortex scopes. They are built tough but will not stay on the scope. It takes 2 hands to open them if you want it to stay on. They will pull off when removing a gun from the case. Needless to say I am very disappointed. If you look at the other reviews you will see this is a big problem. For hunting this is completely unacceptable. I think the scopes are great but the covers are a waste of money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT These work awesome. My gun is mostly in and out of the pickup. These caps are awesome for protection while hunting and other stuff. They are at a great price also, and of course they have the warranty. I have compared them to the butler creek ones and I like these more. They aren't that great for "tatical" purposes, but if you are a real tactical gunfighter you probably shouldn't have any kind of covers on your scope.
