I just realized today that one of my objective lenses has chips and scratches in the middle of the lens.  I think it happened when I tossed it into something on truck seat for a short ride to the other side of the field.  After repair,  I want to purchase a good, quick to open cover, for all the lenses, perhaps integrated into a harness.  The factory covers are insufficient.  I was thinking someone made a harness system with a kind of "all encompassing easy open cover" that went around the whole bino.  Any ideas?  Any other suggestions?  I use them for hunting, don't want them swinging around, which a harness would solve, but I really want some good covers as part of the deal, on the objective lenses.  What about Butler creek spring open scope covers on each barrel, plus a regular sliding eyepiece cover over the top?  Any ideas or reports on what you use would be great.

Thanks,
DFM

I incorrectly called it a Bushnell Elite, actually, it is the older Bausch & Lomb Elite 8 x 42.  One of the original waterproof models, maybe 10 yrs. old?  Model no. is 61-0842.  Your suggestion of the Butler Creek objective covers may be the best idea to protect them. 
 
I tried to measure mine carefully after reading your reply, and looks like 1.79 inch, measured with dial caliper, or 50.5 to 51 mm. measured with a rule. Same cover as you mentioned, or different?
