The Armadillo, a packable rifle, shotgun, AR cover, protects gun and optics from weather during outdoor excursions or hunts, transportation and storage.


Virginia Beach, Virginia, (January 9, 2017) – Sentry Products Group, the industry leader in protection, transport and storage of optics extends its product line with the lightweight water resistant Armadillo.

“The concept came from a call with a customer whose slung rifle fell into the snow during an elk hunt,” stated Eric Yeates, Vice President Research and Development for Sentry. “While their Scopecoat cover kept the optic clear, they asked if anything was available to protect the rifle. We looked to technology from the apparel industry and created a lightweight product that would work with a slung weapon,” concluded Yeates.

Enter the Armadillo. A packable cover that accommodates Rifle, Shotgun or AR regardless of accessory configuration.  Constructed of lightweight, water resistant material the Armadillo fits from muzzle to butt stock and works with all sling types, offering protection from the elements, even while shouldered.  The stretch fabric and adjustable draw string forms the Armadillo to the weapons unique configuration.   Once removed it folds to the size of a deck of cards for storage in the hunting vest or range bag.

While great for use in the field, the Armadillo also protects your valuable firearms and optics during transport and storage. The soft brushed interior eliminates friction wear marks in transport and eliminates collateral damage from exposed bolts, laser devices, optics and lights while retrieving, or arranging weapons in the safe.
