Air Armor Tech Tactical 12 Scope Cover – Kryptek Typhon



Air Armor Tech Tactical 12 Scope Cover – Kryptek Typhon

The power of AIR!

Capture air, add a little pressure, and you create a remarkably resilient, energy-absorbing surface. Built into a case, inflation will protect your firearm or scope as well as any hard case.

But, that’s where the similarities end. Arrive at your destination and a protective hard case becomes a space-wasting nuisance, while an Air Armor Tech inflatable case deflates to just 15% of its inflated size. And, because it’s made of fabric instead of plastic or aluminum, you can roll it up for easy stashing.

Because air is lightweight, so is an Air Armor Tech case. Our gun cases are so lightweight that we built backpack straps in them for hands-free transportation.

Think airbag

If you aren’t so sure of the ability of air-filled fabric to protect your treasured gun or crucial scope, consider the airbag in your vehicle. Like our cases, the airbag creates an energy-absorbing surface designed to protect something of significant importance (your life!) from blunt-force impact with a steering wheel or dashboard. Similar to Air Armor Tech cases, an airbag is made of premium, high-performance fabrics designed to use air for maximum protection. Need we say more?

How a half-million-dollar fighter pilot helmet led to the world’s first inflatable cases

Blaine “Rock” Tompkins is a fighter pilot with 3,000 flight hours, 20 years of service and multiple combat deployments with both the US Navy and US Air Force in the F/A-18 Hornet and F-16 Viper. Asked in 2009 to work on the newest fighter aircraft, the F-35 Lightning II, which incorporates advanced avionics, sensors and weapon systems into a pilot helmet, he immediately recognized a looming problem that would need to be solved…

While the $500,000 helmet performed well, the increased sensitivity, value and requirement to fly the jet could not be adequately protected by the standard issue quilt lined bag that did little more than provide a means of carrying the helmet. Hard case options are simply too heavy, bulky and do not fit into the cockpit. Perhaps being both protective and collapsible was seen as an impossible option, but it got “Rock” to thinking – Why couldn’t one devise a case that offered the needed protection but took up less space? So, he did… with AIR!

TACTICAL 12 Scope Cover

The Air Armor Tech™ Tactical 12 inflatable scope cover is designed to protect an optic’s “zero,” structural integrity, and cosmetic features against significant blunt-force impact, as well as provide flotation for up to 21 pounds of weapon system. With an average of over 2 1/2 inches of inflated air bladder surrounding the entire scope, the Tactical 12 is designed for 12-inch class optics mounted to a rifle system operating in extreme field environments.

Due to the slightly taller profile of most AR-style platforms and mounted optics, compared with traditional sporting rifles, the Tactical 12 extends farther down the side of the weapon, providing protection from the top of the optic to a position aligned with the bottom of the lower receiver and hand guard. Carrying your weapon in the field is also improved via the integrated carry handle located on top of the scope cover when not slung.
