It also boasts three times more neoprene and nylon construction than standard models, for greater total-optic protection from dirt, dings and scratches while in the field. Color options include Black, Natural Gear Camouflage and Coyote Brown.
MSRP: $20

C. A hassle-free way to clean optics, the Cabela’s Green Lens Pen features an all-natural, retractable brush for removing dust/debris from lenses without scratching them.
