          Length of the 54x58 is just right to cover your head down to below shoulder blades. I tried the smaller size and it hit the top of my neck..Too small.
          The silver helps to keep you cooler. Velcro goes around lens... It can change your focus ring if not careful.
          The silver top and black bottom are stitched on the outer edges but not in the middle...the black cloth hangs down a smudge. I will be adding stitching to bind both sides together.
          Any dark cloth can move around in a high wind...

              I was using a piece of black fabric I had cut at the local fabric store. It worked fine, but I could not keep the light out from below. It was also too small and frankly not that cheap. This solves all my problems and also works to keep my camera dry if I happen to get caught in the rain.

                  Excellent dark cloth, but for an 8x10 camera an extra 5 or 6 inches are needed so that it's possible to close the cloth with velcro underneath the camera. 54 inches is not enough. It's not always necessary to keep the camera tightly wrapped when looking through the groundglass, but when there is a lot of sunlight bouncing from the floor, those extra inches that would give complete darkness should be a must.

                    This dark cloth is a good functional size for use with a 4x5 camera, and it makes a great rain cover in a sudden shower, but it's also fairly heavy and bulky for field use. I bought mine in about 2003, and the black inner fabric gave out in 2010, so it gave me seven years of use in sun, rain, and snow. There are many solutions to the dark-cloth problem, but I certainly recommend having one side waterproof to any photographer who plans to work in the field.

                        A perfect dark cloth, but I should have bought the small size for a 4x5 - I find there is too much fabric to handle.

                        Comments about Harrison Silver Classic Classic Dark Cloth (54 x 58"):

                        I bought the Classic Dark Cloth to use with my new Solar Telescope.
                        When the Hydrogen Alpha scope is using double stacked filters the use of a dark cloth lets the observer see detail that is usually lost in light glare due to being in bright sunlight when you are doing the observing. The silver outside layer helps reflect the heat from the observer and the velcro along the one side helps to lock in the darkness around the observer. It does get hot under the cloth for any extended period of time and a small fan may be utilized by the observer for extended viewing in the summer. I highly recommend this product to any amateur astronomer who does solar observing.
