UV 7x42 HD+ ; Winged eyecups, Case

Anyone sourced winged eyecups that fit this model ?

Or a sturdy leather case?

Regards
Andy

I use the Bino Bandit (https://alpineproducts.com/product/b...glare-blocker/) on other binoculars. They work pretty well for eliminating stray light. They also fold over and work as a decent ocular cover. I've not tried them on those 7x42s.

Andy,

FWIW I know that the stretch on "Horned Eye Cups" that came with my Nikon 10x32 EDG fit the eye cups on my Leica 8x42 Blackline perfectly. I have used them successfully on a number of occasions. They also fit on the eye cups of my Zeiss Victory 7x42 T* FL. Unfortunately they are getting hard to find.

The eye cups on the Ultravids are slightly different in design than the Blacklines being rounded off rather than flat. The Horned eye cups are made of thick soft rubber which stretches around the eye cups.

Andy,

Size medium of this case fits the UV 7x42 perfectly, although it's hella expensive:

-and these eyecups are what I use. I cut them down a bit on the sides to fit just right.

I've asked friends who spend much of the year in America to get me a case. The eyecups can wait till the sun is out more.
I'm certainly enjoying the relaxed 7x42 view, and have used them everyday since they arrived.
