It's a bit spendy, but it works great. I just returned from my WY antelope hunt where I used my Kowa 554 spotter extensively. I had it strapped to my backpack while stalking through the sage a lot. The case protected the lenses when I had the lens covers off, and it kept me from losing the covers when I had them on the scope. I experienced a lot of wind and was concerned the cover ends dangling in the wind would be an issue while spotting. This was not an issue. I would certainly purchase again.
