I love mine
I’ve had mine for just over a year. I don’t put it through crazy conditions but it has a great build quality and I don’t think it would have any issues. It looks great and is easy to install.

I use these caps on all my scopes the only bad thing I can say about them is that when it’s below freezing they sometimes pop off when you go to flip the cap up. Other than that they are great and hard to beat price wise. Great product

Bought these caps for a gen II PST I bought last year. They are (for the price) decent caps. I had that scope on a 300 wby and the recoil would move the caps all over and even make them come off. I wish vortex would make something similar to Leupold's alumina covers (they are nicer, but 2-3 x more expensive).

All being said, for the price I think they would be hard to beat! I would recommend them, even though I do not use them. Vortex, please make a higher/premium scope cap so I can buy them!

50 mm flip caps
I’ve had the flip caps on my Viper scope for a month and I really like them. Snaps open and closes with ease.. everything id want in a flip cap.

Great fit
The vortex cap fits snug on the vortex viper pst 6-24x50 FFP EBR MOA scope I purchased. Lid snaps closed and requires a decent amount of force to open so it shouldn't pop open at the wrong time. Maybe a touch too loudly if i'm in the woods looking at a close deer.

Great Coverz
Put these on my PST 6-24X50 and they work great. They do move a little under use , otherwise they would've gotten 5 stars.
