Hi CN! Long time lurker and infrequent poster. I have a pair of Nikon 7x50 Prostar, which are just incredible. My only fault with them are the crummy lens cover which pop over easily. Does anybody know about something that could stick to the outside and attach the binoculars or strap to keep them from getting lost?

 

Thanks!

Camera lens cap keepers are a natural, easy and effective.

 

A large elastic loop could keep front and rear in place while stored, but camera cap keeps work while using the binos.

These come in all different sizes and I have found them most helpful for use with my binoculars. No losing them in the dark anymore!
