Strike Industries says this Jelly Fish is “almost a necessity”:
Considering Trijicon makes some of the toughest weapon sights in the world which even our military uses, I find it hard to wrap my head around an extraneous cover being “almost a necessity”. You can see the dot through it if you choose to shoot with the cover on, and it also has a lanyard hole for quick detachment, and finger grip if you want to rip it off quickly.
Lets not get it twisted though, this cover is basically just to protect the lens of the sight if your operating in really inclement operational environments where you might otherwise need to wipe the sight off before use. According to the FAQ link on the Trijicon RMR page, the sight is completely waterproof to 66ft (20 m), so that basically throws concern out the window for anything except if you’re worried about getting scratches on this $440-$600 sight. Do real operators worry about scratches? No, they wear those as a badge of honor on their operating equipment. If you’re worried about scratches effecting the resale value of a sight you’re probably not operator enough to even own, then you probably should pick one up for $12.95 on the Strike Industries website. Look yourself in the mirror when you put it on though, and admit defeat.
Next up, a custom molded shoot through jelly full Glock cover? A jelly Deagle brand Deagle cover? I hope so.
