Cases for Leica 62mm Scopes

Like several Forum members I have been frustrated in my attempts to get an original case for my Straight Leica 62mm scope.

I have however found an outfit in the States that does a range of neoprene covers for scopes. They are sold under the name Snugfit ScopeSkins and can be found on the following web site.
sophuntinggear.com/Products/SnugFit/tabid/1014/CatalogItemID/1739/CatalogID/43/psnavcmd/CatalogItemDetails/psmid/1980/Default.aspx

I obtained mine from Optics Planet also in the States (the last one they had) and am unsure whether sophuntinggear will ship direct to the UK but thought I would mention this as it may help.

Not a cheap alternative after import duty but at least my scope is now protected and I am pleased with the product. (Also put this message on the "for sale" area)

Hi, I believe Kay Optical have one at least of these - secondhand good quality.
