    This is a great idea but you should use a darker lens instead of a net.

    makes a person wonder why you r trying to hide the reflection off your lenses...not like the critters really care if they see a glint of light off in the distance.....hmmmmmm

    im hiding them from enemy airsofters mate,

    This is testing whether Add Comment works, as reported by Gnutella (the author of this I'ble).

    I thought it might be an ok Idea. But doesnt it also make the binoculars less visible to look threw?

    No mate. i get that question from my friends all the time ,but when i let them look inside the the binoculars they get amazed, they said and i quote "It's like theres nothing in there".thanks for commenting =)

    How does this affect clarity of what your are viewing?

    Let's say what you're viewing is 100% clear without them nets,if you put nets ,clarity goes down by maybe 3% when its dark.but when its shiny outside you won't even notice the are images from inside the scope both of them have nets
