              Allow about 10 minutes to take your time and put this cover on. Carry a piece of plastic just in case you get a flash rainstorm because you wont be able to put this cover on before the camera gets soaked. Once its on, its good.

                  You better not be in a hurry to put this cover on your video camcorder. It took me almost 10 minutes to get it on just right. Once on, it fit well. I have a Canon XF 100 and it'ls about the right size for this cameral. But you have to make lots of adjustments EVERY time you put it on.

                  A better alternative would just be a clear bag to throw over the camcorder if you're in a hurry. I have a Petrol Camcorder bag which I love. Petrol brand is very high quality stuff. I just wish this was easier to take on and off.

                  The carry case is a joke. Imagine trying to put your Christmas lights back in the original packaging as they were when you bought them and you have an idea of what its like putting this cover back in the case.

                  Comments about Petrol PR405 Deca Transparent Raincover:

                  I bought this camcorder to fit a Canon XA10 camcorder. Seems to do the job well despite the camcorder being a tad bit small for this cover.

                  Keeps camcorder nice and dry. There is no cover over the front lens though, for lens protection might be a good idea to get a UV filter.

                  Also a sileca gel pack couldn't hurt, I had inside the cover start to fog up once.

                  Stays on secure and sturdy with the shoe adapter and rolls up nicely for transport. Feels well made.
