The Cole-TAC Rifle Handle is the best way to protect your glass and give you a convenient handle to safely carry your rifle. The padded sides wrap around the scope and protect it from dings, dents, scratches, and drops. The adjustable straps go around the bottom of the rifle and ensure that you are lifting from the stock or chassis, and not lifting from the optic itself. This helps keep your zero and ensure you are ready for the next shot. The Rifle handle is made with 1000D Cordura Nylon and the the closed cell foam pad will not absorb moisture. Made here in the EU with only the highest quality materials by a company who stands behind all of their gear.
