Default Looking for a good low profile rail cover

I'm looking to get some rail covers for my AR-15

Something that won't make the AR-15 hand guard too fat/wide for my hand to grip on





any suggestions? I was looking into Ladder style rail covers but are those comfortable?

thank ye much

I have a set of ladder rail covers and they are comfortable to use but are a Huge pain in the @$$ for me to get on the rails so i use the military knights armament rail guards, they do make it a little fat but i dont mind and i dont burst a blood vessel trying to get them back on.

Thats a magpul guy and i always thought it was funny that he has a tapco forearm on his weapon but to the point i use magpuls snap on's they aren't to fat and all the colors snap together to make a MARPAT pattern its kinda cool

Ladder Rails are great for a low profile cover.
