Binoculars have one job: to help you see farther and better. Have you ever reached for your binoculars to get a better view of something and then struggled to see clearly because of glare, wind, or dirt on your lenses? That’s the worst! Good thing Alpine Innovations figured out the perfect way to make using binoculars a more enjoyable experience: Introducing the best bino glare guards, Bino Bandits!
Bino Bandits are a lightweight fabric solution for glare and wind that can normally interfere with the use of binoculars. This easy-to-use cover attaches to your binoculars and makes a mini cloak for your eyes to “duck” into, creating a shield from light, glare, wind, and dust. This glare guard improves visual clarity and allows you to view objects without the distraction of eye strain or surrounding weather conditions.
The Bino Bandit is comfortable and lightweight. Made of durable neoprene, this attachment is firm enough to provide a non-floppy structure but flexible enough to easily tuck aside when needed. The Bino Bandit will fit most binoculars, including the Swarovski BTX.
The Bino Bandit is easy to install. To use, slide the flexible loops around each eye cup and lock behind the eye cups. The flexible neoprene stretches and tightens down around each eyepiece and includes a male and female buckle that locks together, protecting the eye cups from water, dust, and mechanical damage.
This genius piece of neoprene completely blocks glare and ambient light so you can see your target clearly and perfectly. Whether you’re a hunter or a birdwatcher, the Bandit is designed to provide you with the best clarity and detail that your binoculars can provide. See our Youtube Tutorial HERE! Each of our products is proudly made in the U.S.A and durable enough to last in any condition.
Experience the difference the Bino Bandit can make while you are using your binoculars, Get the visual clarity and acuity you desire, easily sealing out wind, dust, rain, and ambient light.

How can I block ambient light while glassing?
Creating a dark space between your eyes and your bino lenses is the best way to reduce eye strain caused by ambient light. The Bino Bandit glare blocker is the perfect solution for ambient light problems while glassing.
How do I stop my binoculars from fogging up?
Binoculars fog up when your face is warmer than your lenses. You can use anti-fog sprays and wipes but if it is cold enough, they won’t be completely effective. Make sure you always have a cleaning cloth handy to wipe your lenses as needed.
How should I protect my binoculars?
Binoculars are susceptible to moisture and dust. It is best to keep binoculars stored in an airtight container and to keep them covered while you are using them but not looking through them. An elastic cover is perfect for this.

One of the best purchases I’ve made. Bino Bandits block out the unwanted light in your peripheral while scoping with Binos. I also have the spotting scope Bino Bandit eye piece. Absolutely love these products.
Awesome Product- Fits my Swarovski’s perfectly
I love it. I never knew how good they were till I looked through them. Blocks all the side glare.
Bino Bandits were needed along time ago! These things are so awesome and simple you will be surprised the difference it makes! Awesome price for an awesome product!
Absolutely fell in love with this product the first time I used it! It was windy with snow on the ground and bright sun. The Bino Bandit made it easy to enjoy using my binoculars! No eye strain, the wind was no an issue, and I love how the flaps buckle together to protect the eye pieces. A great innovation!
