    Simple tapered-shape vinyl tube with bungee ties at either end, and a Velcro hole in the bottom for a tripod. Lightweight and waterproof. I used this on my canon 5D with my 70-200 f2.8 and it works just fine. It's not fancy but then again there's nothing to fiddle with. It kept the water off the camera. I would have liked the front lens end seal to be tighter; the bungee isn't as slip-resistant as I would have liked and I suppose some water could get in that way. Also the back end simply hangs open and guards the rain unless you're leaning the camera slightly forward and accessing the controls. I also own one of the fancy models that covers the entire camera that was $[$], but this is much easier to use in lighter/medium rain and I would prefer this unless it's really a heavy downpour. If it got really windy and rainy and I wanted the back and front sealed more, then I'd use my larger, clunky expensive rain guard instead of this one.

    If you buy the correct size it works well, if it's too big it's really fiddly to get to your eyepiece, too small and obviously it doesn't cover the camera properly, on the storm cover website it says that it's ok if the cover is bigger as it just bunches up, sounds good in theory but doesn't really work that way.

    the velcro bottom that opens up to allow for a tripod or manual focusing is good but for focusing it should just be an elastic opening or something as it's tricky to get the velcro open while holding your camera.

    so yes it works, still not perfect but definetly better than nothing, having said that, i wouldn't say it's good value for money pretty expensive for a little piece of material with two elastic straps.

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

      I recently used this while shooting down in Cabo San Lucas as Hurricane Marie approached with heavy winds and rain while on a boat. The Storm Jacket performed better than expected. It was fast and easy to put on the camera. In fact, It was so easy, I used it after while in very bright sunlight conditions to give me a darken view. Love the thing, I have two different sizes to accommodate a variety of lens choices.

      Great, inexpensive product

          I bought the Storm Jacket to protect my Canon 5D Mark 2 and long lenses on a trip to British Columbia and Alaska. Even though the 5D is pretty weatherproof some of the lenses are not and southern Alaska is mostly a temperate rainforest so I expected lots of rain. I only had to use the Storm Jacket once but it did the job. It takes up very little space in a camera bag and once you figure out how to put it on quickly it works as advertised. Be sure to buy the pro version with the velcro opening on the bottom. It makes manipulating zoom lenses much easier.

          Was recently in the PA mountains to shoot a race. Turm three is a good quarter of a mile frim the media center. I felt those first few drops and reached for my Storm Guard camera cover. It was a matter of a few seconds before it was pouring. Thanks guys and gals. Camera stayed dry all the way back to cover.

              Great product to keep the water off your camera. I just returned from Alaska and it worked very well in keeping my equipment dry! I use a Black Rapid "R" strap and it even works well with the R-Strap. I shoot with a Nikon D610 and 70-200 2.8mm Lens as well as a 300mm 4.0 Lens and it worked great with both combinations.

                I bought this cover prior to a trip to Iceland wondering at the time if I would actually need to use it. On our first day in Rekjavik I pulled it out and it was used regularly for the rest of the trip. It was easy to put on and adjust, although configuring the front end before hand is probably a good idea. Well constructed and worked exactly as described.

                  Love the product. Very basic and not much to say about it. Fit my D800 + 300mm f/4 perfectly. Tried it out in rain and no leaks. I also loved how easy it was to use with my tripod. I will probably buy the other sized models.

                        This is my second Storm Jacket. I needed one to work with my tripod and the Pro fit the bill. These jackets are easy to carry, light, and do the job unless the rain is really coming down. In that case, you must be prepared for a bit of wetness, but you'll still get great protection.

                          It's opened at the back which is terrific, as ones with isenglas windows to see the LED screen are useless. Great for all but worst downpours. Inexpensive compared with comparable ones on sale. However, it's made with a water RESISTANT material. It really should be water proof. Also, the material is a bit stiff, and to easily close the drawstrings, you have to push the material up on the string first...would be good if you had three hands.

                                    Well constructed and is easy to get on an off. I like it. Haven't had to use it but testing worked well.

                                    This is essentially a waterproof tube with drawcords at both ends and Velcro at the bottom. While a bit awkward to get used to it is light weight and packs small. Perfect forthe photographer who carries other equipment (ie camping gear) to his or her shooting location. Works best with lens hood attached.

                                          Bought this to protect camera during outdoor shoots in rain and snow. I use 70-300 zoom lens and manually adjust as i shoot so need access to lens. Lightweight and affordable. Very clumsy to put on. Does not stay secure on lens and pain to see through viewfinder.

                                              If you don't want to try protecting your expensive camera with a plastic freezer bag, this is the real deal. I have video cameras and the rain covers I use for them are made out of the same material and they have saved my bacon many times. This is simple to put on, flexible enough to fit a wide range of cameras and lenses and the price is fair. I recommend the Pro model because the opening in the bottom is useful if you're using a zoom lens, even if you never put your camera on a tripod in the rain. Only weighs a few ounces and fits nicely in a pocket on my camera bag.

                                              Simple tapered-shape vinyl tube with bungee ties at either end, and a Velcro hole in the bottom for a tripod. Lightweight and waterproof. I used this on my canon 5D with my 70-200 f2.8 and it works just fine. It's not fancy but then again there's nothing to fiddle with. It kept the water off the camera. I would have liked the front lens end seal to be tighter; the bungee isn't as slip-resistant as I would have liked and I suppose some water could get in that way. Also the back end simply hangs open and guards the rain unless you're leaning the camera slightly forward and accessing the controls. I also own one of the fancy models that covers the entire camera that was $[$], but this is much easier to use in lighter/medium rain and I would prefer this unless it's really a heavy downpour. If it got really windy and rainy and I wanted the back and front sealed more, then I'd use my larger, clunky expensive rain guard instead of this one.

                                              Product is well made and fits my 200mm Nikkor and smaller lenses. Tripod opening works well with my standard ball head and CB gimbal head. COver folds easily back into the carrying pouch.

                                                Although I haven't been able to use this product yet (weather has been great lately!) I fully expect it to work flawlessly. As others have said, the material is rugged, the handy carry pack looks like it will be useful, and the tripod opening is very nice to have. So far, I would definitely recommend this to someone looking for an easy and portable camera cover.
