This is a new item never before available.
The question is: What do you do when you remove your ACOG/Aimpoint optics with the mount attached, when you switch optics or go to the BUIS?
Do you throw it in your ruck and let it get banged around, with no cover and difficult access?
Do you leave it at home or at the base?
Have you even thought about it?
There is a new answer for this situation now.
This is a handy NEOPRENE pouch that is made of similar material as the "ScopeCoat" products*.
The neoprene material is stretchy and easily adjusts to conform to the different size and shapes of the Aimpoint, ACOG, and their various mounting systems, including QD or cantilever styles.
It is about 2mm thick neoprene, and provides protection for your optics and mounts from dust, dirt, moisture, scratches, and dings. Very light weight.
It is a zipper-type pouch with a no-mar heavy duty zipper. It also has a polymer belt clip, and polymer lanyard hook with spring-clip for retention purposes.
It fits Aimpoint M2 or ML2, and ACOG TA-01 or NSN or mini-ACOGS, along with their military rail mountings of any style including cantilever and throw lever mounts, and flip-ups.
Just dismount the optic, and zip it into the pouch, for easy-access carry on your belt or webgear.
Or store your optic in the pouch for extra protection when transporting in your ruck. Retention clip solves worries about losing the optic in rough going.
When you are ready to mount the optic, then just unzip the pouch and mount it on your weapon.
One pouch fits either the Aimpoint(with mount) or the ACOG(with mount), so if you use both optics, then you can keep one on your weapon, and keep the other in your pouch on your belt or webgear, protected and safe, but with quick and easy zipper access. When you want to switch optics, you can put the one you removed back into the pouch that you took the one you are now using out of. Simple and easy. No carrying two pouches if you don't want to. But if you want to have a place for both optics when using iron sights, you can have a pouch for each optic. At this affordable price, it's easy to have two.
Size is about 7" long, 3" wide, and 2.25" deep, with stretchable capability to fit and conform to the ACOG or Aimpoint and the various mounting systems.
Protection, easy-access, versatile for various optics and mounts,light weight, affordable, and NEW!
Just $15.95 each, plus shipping.
