    Purchased this for a recent trip to the Pacific NW where it rained more days than not, and it was a life saver. Was able to take the camera out in nearly all conditions encountered and brought back some nice temperate rainforest shots. Although it is a bit pricy for what it is - basically a waterproof tube w/ drawstrings - you'll forget about the price as soon as you're out on the trail taking pictures. (This trip actually made me realize my own rain jacket wasn't adequate for extended outdoor shooting as the camera stayed drier than I did.) If you're serious about taking pictures, make sure to go w/ the pro version which allows for a tripod - or, possibly, if turned upside down - a flash, though the flash configuration I used was a short cable to my flash which was inside a clear plastic sleeve. Also, in extreme rainy conditions, droplets of water will get inside just from handling the camera - no fault of the Storm Jacket - so take along a chamois or other rag as it will be necessary to occasionally wipe off the few drops that make it inside either end of jacket. If shooting w/ a lens that doesn't have some weather sealing, be careful about moisture coming in where it is cinched on the lens end. I found that for extended shooting in the elements, it won't stay cinched on most lens hoods and will settle in behind the lens hood where water can collect. Again, a chamois or rag should allow you to stay ahead of this collection, though.

    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 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.

                          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.

                                    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.

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

                                    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.

                                          I looked at several rain covers and didn't think they would fit my needs. This one does. Shipping was fast and came just in time for the most recent snow fall.

                                            It is a sturdy, yet lightweight rain cover. It will hold up well compared to the plastic ones I have used in the past. I like the velcro closure at the bottom so I can fit around whatever tripod head I am using. Only downside is visibility of camera controls.

                                                I bought this storm jacket in hopes that I chose the right size to fit my Canon EOS 5D Mark II with my Canon EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens attached including the lens hood.

                                                This jacket fits perfect with room to spare! The Velcro opening at the bottom is perfect for holding my lens while allowing for zoom adjustments.

                                                The front of the jacket fits snug over my lens hood with very little slippage while the opening in the back of the jacket allows access to fully control my camera without even tightening the draw string and still protecting my camera from the elements.

                                                This is a very well designed product and worth every penny, a must have!

                                                  We shoot a lot of sports photos and since it normally rains in Oregon, we have been struggling holding an umbrella, but now we can protect our lens and camera body.
