tacky armouring of Kowa 820'

Everybody knows that many Kowa old 820 series are affected by the deterioration of the rubber armouring. I have seen many of them: Some were affected and other not at all. I am just thinking that the problem may not come from the scope itself but from stay on case :eek! All tacky ones are wearing a Kowa original stay on case. (synthetic wowen tissue could release some solvants???).
Any thoughts/feed back?
