      The Vortex Media SLR Storm Jacket Camera

      It helped me to keep dry my D200 with mounted 18-200 lens during my recent trip to New England. Three days of whether were really wet. The cover is just convenient

      The fabric is very nice and it seemed to fit my Canon T1i very well although the small probably would have fit better. My concern is that the back of your camera will be completely exposed while trying to take a photo.

        I use this camera with my 5d miii and my 70-200mm. Its fantastic. When its raining hard I am normally shooting under an umbrella and this adds that little bit more protection from the water.

              Comments about SLR Storm Jacket Camera Cover, Medium (Black):

              I bought this cover for shooting soccer matches, running races, and ski races in inclement weather. I had a lens nearly ruined shooting a pond skimming competition, and this would have protected my lens perfectly. I bought it to fit a Canon 70 - 200 but have used it on my Canon 28 - 135 as well, where it's a bit big but not unwieldy. I like that there's ample room under the jacket to access dials and buttons. Only ding is the fiddling it takes to secure it properly to the lens hood, but this is something I suspect is an issue with all covers.

                I own 3 Storm Jackets, and they are worth every penny. I have used them in Hawaii and Central America in heavy rains and am pleased with the product. They have never failed me when used properly.

                      I use this on a 100-400mm Canon telephoto with camera body and it fits great! It's been under fire in inclement weather on two occasions in the short time I've owned it and it has worked wonderfully! Much, much better than the Canon cover I paid just as much for!!!

                        The storm jacket will do what's it's meant to at a reasonable price compared to some others. It is well made. I wish there was some allowance for mounting the camera on a tripod. Some sort of velcro closed slit in the bottom to allow the camera to be on a tripod would net the product a five.

                            Great for direct sunlight too, not only for storms!

                              A small zipper opening in the area of most camera's tripod mount would have greatly improved its design. It's a bit akward to use, but quite effective in the rain.

                                This cover seemed like a great buy, came in a nice pouch, but the "fit" was not so great. I ordered the medium, because my zoom is 70-300. It was very big on my lens, and tended to bunch up, when I made my "trial" run. What I really didn't care for, was that my hand (small) had trouble fitting into the cover to work the zoom and buttons. Color was great!! Bright enough so that you would see it, if it were attached to a tripod!

                                    The medium is a perfect fit for my D4 with 70-200 and the 1.4 TC. The elastic band fit nicely the end of the 70-200 and the back was perfect to cover the back of the camera while allowing my right hand to operate inside the cover. It is easy to adjust the zoom by grasphing the cover and rotating. I used all day on a boat trip in constant rain and my lens and camera stayed nice and dry. Would recommend.

                                      Used it today with my 5D and the 70-200 2.8 IS, plenty of room for both and to get my hands in there. I attached the front part to the lens hood and secured the back around the eye cup. Kept the sprinkles off my camera so I wouldn't freak out about every little rain drop.

                                        Comments about SLR Storm Jacket Camera Cover, Medium (Red):

                                        I bought this and the Opteka rain jackets to compare before heading out to Niagara Falls for vacation. The Opteka jacket was good, but I LOVE my storm jacket. It is a very simple design- open on both ends with bungee cord to tighten either side(your lens side obviously tightened!). I loved that it gave me access to the back of my camera for control settings and access for adjusting the focus. I thought that with the zooming in and out- the bungee would not function correctly but it worked great! I have a Pentax K-r, and although I could have gotten by with a Small, but I wanted a Medium for $ more. The price is expensive- if you are looking for a one time thing I would suggest the rain jackets as they are under $ and you get two; but, if you are like me and live in a very rainy area where you might be needing rain protection often- I would say it is much better to invest in the storm jacket. I'm very happy with it and the added case with clip is great for attaching to my backpack!

                                          I had gotten this item before a major shoot in London and it has really saved me this trip. In addition to my Gore-Tex and polar fleese coat and Gore-Tex lined Mephesto boots the best money I've spent in preparation for a biblically rainy day is the Vortex Media Pro SLR Storm Jacket Camera Cover for my gear. Without this item it would have been a wasted trip and at least $3,000 down the tube assuming I didn't ruin my gear trying to do photography during a week of rainstorms in the UK. This thing is cheep insurance and needs to be packed in your camera bag, just in case of inclement weather ...

                                            I'm heading to London and other locations in the UK and just wanted to have the SLR Storm Jacket Camera Cover along with me in case of inclement weather. In looking it over, it's well made and I felt the price point wasn't that bad when one considers it as sort of an insurance policy for an expensive camera and lens.

                                                Used this with a T1i and a Tamron 28-300 aspherical (not very long) and the medium size was big. But the cover worked well and exactly as advertised. Seems durable and easy to use. I'm happy.

                                                        I use it when shooting outdoors in the rain. Also once in morocco in a sand storm and my camera was clean.
