I have got in the habit of only using a Butler Creek Flip-up on the front of the scope. When carried on Sling the front is up, Have not had the need to use a back end cover in years, since I was hunting Blacktail on the wet side.
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.

i have found once you start really investing in your optics you dont have to worry about the rain and fog. the 4x16 viper i have is about 10x better then the strike egal and diamondback i have. but my swarro is about 10x better then the viper. for scope covers ive grown to like the basic Leopold covers.

I've been using a Solo Hunter rifle cover for 6 years. Keeps my whole rifle dry all the time.
