Rainguard for Canon binocular?

Q, from Craig: I have a Canon 10x42L binocular for which I would like a better eyepiece/rainguard covering.

I saw you had two listed:

Vortex Binocular Rainguard

Eagle Optics Binocular Rainguard

Could you tell me if either of these would work with my Canon binoculars? The eyepiece outside diameter is ~45mm (~1.77”)

If another option is available, would also be very interested.


A: Thank you for contacting Eagle Optics regarding a rainguard for your Canon 10x42 binocular.
Unfortunately, neither of the ones we carry are a perfect choice. The Vortex version is contoured and doesn't fit at all. The Eagle Optics rainguard does fit, but it is a tight fit takes a bit of patience to get it on. I wouldn't worry about it falling off, but you may not be able to put it on one-handed in the field.
You may want to call Canon for this replacement part. The number to call is 1-800-828-4040.
