    Clearly you didn't search because I posted in a identical thread like this one earlier today. I'll post the same link I posted in that one just to help you out, but please search next time.

    http://www.evike.com/product_info.php?cPath=32_177&products_id=30559

    Search around on the internet as well most of these things will be in the scopes and red dot accessories sections all over different websites.

    From personal experience, I had (And might still have) it on my EOtech 552. It protects the optic. If you keep it clean, it'll be easy to view through.
    But overall I recommend the mesh optic protector. The one downside is when it gets scratches it can sometimes glare the user, so you'll either want to replace it or get a black marker and re-color in the faded or chipped areas.
    I purchased mine off eBay about 2yrs ago, and sadly haven't really seen them since.


    Edit:
    Here ya go. Looks very similar to this: http://www.priceangels.com/551-557-...pe-Kill-Flash---Defender--Black--s114915.html
    Keep in mind that if you're new to mesh, it'll take you a bit of time to for your eyes to adjust and get used to it.

    make your own out of thick lexan... if you have a bench grinder and access to either home depot or amazon, it's easy.

    Are there any lens protectors out there made to keep scratches off real eotechs? One of those would probably be the best option.

    I handmade my own out of safety glasses from Home Depot. I used a Dremel, and measured everything out, and it works really well. I made a scratch with the Dremel, but it was my fault, and I don't want to make a new one, so I don't mind.
