      I purchased this product with my new m4/3 e-pl1, thinking it would be a great addition to be able to venture out on fair-weather days. Unfortunately, even at the "small" size, it is QUITE large on the camera if you are not using the telescopic lens. Granted, I understand this is really meant for a full size DSLR, it would have been nice to make it a little less baggy. But it still works, just a little more protection than what I need, I guess. I'll try and put it on my older Olypus DSLR and see if it fits.

      I was in New York for the monsoon over the weekend of 3/13/10 and wanted something to keep my A900 protected from the weather. The Storm Jacket performed its advertised function; it is water resistant, not waterproof. I kept my camera under my Gore-Tex raincoat as much as possible... the Storm Jacket was basically added protection. It kept my camera from getting wet, but I can't say that it kept it dry.

      I already own a Kata Elements cover, but left it at home because I've found it awkward to use. The Kata is a good, heavy-duty cover, but I think it's a bit too stiff, both the vinyl and the velcro lens attachment.

      I was prepared to spring for an Aqua Tech cover, but didn't because there is no compatible eyepiece for Sony line.

      The Storm Jacket worked better than a plastic bag simply because it has a drawstring at either end which allows you to shoot with the cover on. Beyond that, I think the plastic bag would have worked as well.

      This jacket will stay in my bag for emergency use

          I used this product to cover my D200 Nikon camera while touring Ireland. We camped around the country and knew we would have several days of rain in a two week vacation.

          It did the job of protecting the camera but it was somewhat inconvenient. If the camera had a screen in the back to position the picture instead of only using the view finder it would work easier.

            I shot mainly long exposure photography. I place the sleeve over the lens barrel & secure both ends used in conjunction with gaffer tape around the Formatt IRND filters & viewfinder to prevent light leakage

              This is a simple sleeve for your camera. You can quickly cinch it on the front of your lens and you have good protection from rain, snow, sand etc. It is made so it will last a long time and comes with a pouch for storage.

              I bought this rain cover to protect Sony NEX 5n. The front side ( around the lense ) can not be ajust really well , so when you zoom, the jacket slip around the lense barrel.
              Conclusion : very cheap , not a good value for the money spend.

                    This is exactly what I want it: easy to use and light to carry around, great protection from rain, sand and other harsh environment, and best of all, it's not too expensive. Sure you could find better ones but you need to pay double or more. The only thing I didn't give it 5 star is because it's a bit short for my Canon 70-200mm f2.8 lens. So it's not perfect for mid to long prime or zoom lenses.

                        The size is perfect for my Lumix bridge camera, accommodating the flip out LCD screen, the extended telephoto lens, and my hands. The bag material is waterproof, shedding water with no absorbtion. The cinch in front will unavoidably allow water to reach the lens barrel a little. Attatching the lens hood helps secure the bag and will help shelter the lens from rain.

                            Purchased the camera cover for an upcoming trip. My last trip was through jungles and pouring rain. Knew I needed something to protect my camera from rain. It took me a while to find something like this camera cover. It is easy to put over the camera and will accomodate all my lenses, regular, telephoto and wide angle. It can be combersome to adjust it to be able see thorugh the view finder, however, any good cover is better than nothing in the pouring rain.

                            This is great product, but it wont fit a 5DIII with 70-200 2.8 as it states it will. Maybe the Nikon 80-200 2.8 is shorter but i dont think its that much shorter.
                            Build quality is good but i returned it for the medium in less than 10 minutes so.
                            Only major flaw is that the camera end is also a drawstring so you cant really keep the back of the camera to covered in heavy rain, unlike others which cover the back with plastic, or a specialized eyecup built into it.

                              I've already used this in the rain and it has worked very well. It repels the water effectively keeping it away from the camera which is ideal!

                                Great for times where a full weather cover is too restrictive. I use this and the medium size version for protection from muddy adventure style events where it is impossible to dodge every blob of mud coming at you. I also use it for remote cameras mounted on a tripod.

                                Since the back of the camera is exposed, operation is less restrictive, meaning you are not working blind as is the case with a full cover like the Aquatech SS-Sport. A little pricey for what it is, but not for a camera cover.

                                This tool does keep your camera dry, but doesn't do anything to keep rain from the front of your lens, where rain drops can show up on your images. It's also difficult to keep the front from slipping a bit down the length of the lens barrel, exposing it to rain. It's handy for unexpected inclement weather, but you have to be very careful if you're to avoid getting the front of the lens wet if there's any wind at all or if you hold the camera at any upward angle. It works best in light precipitation with no wind.

                                This camera rain cover is simple enough to use, very straight-forward and you'll have a waterproof camera in just seconds.

                                The only downside is the price.

                                      Purchased for a trip to Ireland (and the rain) should work but found it difficult to cover my Lumix GF1... definitely not for "instant" use if it starts to rain. I would hate to try to cover camera while it is raining. Awkward to manipulate camera controls/zoom or view display or eye-level finder.
