    I bought a pack of these sleeves to use when shooting outdoor sports in the rain. I'm not a pro photographer and couldn't justify the expense of the superior Aquatech rain gear. I needed something small and light that fits in my camera backpack and keeps me shooting during poor weather conditions I occasionally encounter.If you do a lot of shooting in questionable weather and can justify the $200 cost, the Aquatech is obviously a better solution. But for [$] the Op/Tech sleeves are hard to beat in a pinch, particularly for casual photographers.The sleeves are large enough to cover most all but the largest of the pro telephoto lenses. It fits my D300 with battery pack and 70-200 2.8 with room to spare. The sleeve has a hole in the rear - just remove your eyepiece cover, stretch the hole over the eyepiece, and replace the cover to hold it in place. The sleeve has a drawstring closure in front that holds very securely to the lens hood. The plastic is transparent and thin enough to allow operation of all the controls right through the sleeve (vs, sliding your hands up inside). It's a very usable solution, although it does make adjusting the zoom a bit more difficult. But again, this is intended to be more of an emergency or occasional rain solution.I've spent endless hours shooting football games in the rain and the protection provided is excellent. As long as you don't poke a hole in it, your equipment will stay dry. I'm able to reuse them multiple times.Pros: Very low cost, stores anywhere, excellent protection, low tech ease of use, able to see all of the camera's controls, works with tripods and monopods.Cons: Takes a few minutes to put on and get adjusted, makes accessing some controls a little awkward (but not impossible), far too long for short lenses.Bottom line: Excellent emergency protection during occasional bad weather for cameras with larger lenses. Those using smaller lenses should look for another solution.

    Works well to protect camera from rain while giving you complete access to camera controls. But when used with a zoom lens, rainsleeve slips off the end of the lense too easily just from the simple act of zooming in and out.

          Comments about OP/TECH USA 18" Rainsleeve (Set of 2):

          I gave this Op/Tech sleeve 4 stars for what it is for the money, and you get 2 sleeves. I bought this knowing I did not want it for heavy weather/rain. I would have preferred a shorter sleeve, but this works for the weather I will use it in, non downpour situations. The end tie is adequate especially for what this costs and for my uses. I found that I do not need to put viewfinder hole over the viewfinder eyepiece to see, and I do not use live view to compose or focus. This is not intended as a rugged all weather sleeve, but it is good for what I require and it is very light.

                  I used the Rainsleeve while vacationing at Cannon Beach Ore. I purchased them because of the probability that it would rain on the Pacific coast.
                  I could have purchased many other rainsleeves but found for the price these work great. I recommend them if your going where there is to be rain or heavy mist. Saves your valuable camera from the elements.

                    I have not had to use these yet. They seem to be fairly durable and appropriate for my purposes. They are a little awkward to use but not impossible. I would say for light to medium duty shots these are worth having in your gear bag.

                              Works as expected and is basically a plastic bag with a drawstring to close around the lens. The sleeve is quite long and works perfectly with my 70-200 2.8 but is quite scrunched up for other lenses. My one issue is that there is not much space between the camera and the sleeve when you are holding it your hand is pressed against the sleeve.

                                Was in NYC and picked up this rain sleeve and a few other items at B&H. What a place! Had a photo shoot with a Citifari professional that night in a steady rain. The bag worked well to keep my Nikon dry. I used the drawstring end around the lense hood. They come in pairs and are thin but pretty strong. It allowed me to stay out for three hours and not damage my camera or lens. Ended up with some great images.

                                  How cool to have such a lightweight and useful device for protection in wet and dusty environments. This was helpful on a recent trip to shield my camera and a few different lenses even when using a tripod in a very gritty and breezy environment.

                                    always keep a couple in the gear bag for unexpected rain during games - some of my favorite action shots are rainy ones and these make rain shooting possible without hurting expensive gear!
