What is a honeycomb shade?

This Piece of Hunting Gear is a Real Honey

Back in the 80s, a now forgotten rock group told us that war was good for absolutely nothing. Well, it appears they were not entirely right. Military sniper technology has resulted in a piece of hunting equipment that is absolutely something—namely honey-comb inserts. These remarkable accessories give shading equivalent to a 6" tubular sunshade.

Honeycomb inserts install in a flip-open objective lens cover and mount to the objective lens of your rifle scope. The cool thing is that you don't even see the honeycomb (or bees) when you look through your scope. All you see is a crisp, clear, glare-free image. With a honeycomb insert you'll have it made in the shade.
