Product Highlights
  • For Canon or Nikon, Film or Digital SLR Camera with Lens up to 23 x 8.0" Attached

The gray SS-600 Sport Shield Rain Cover from Aqua Tech is primarily designed to fit Nikon or Canon digital or film SLR cameras, with lenses up to 23 x 8.0" attached. It is made of high-quality, 3-ply, waterproof, breathable fabric, fully tape seam sealed with waterproof silicone sealing around the view windows. It is made with YKK weatherproof zippers for ease of application and removal. The rain cover provides a watertight seal around lens front. The one-piece design provides complete enclosure and moisture protection for both the camera body and lens with a "glove-like" fit. It is designed with a waterproof sleeve to access and operate the camera controls safely and easily.

There are draw strings on hand access and tripod sleeve for protection when not in use. It has waterproof view windows to monitor camera functions. The eyepiece cover flap protects the viewfinder when not in use.

Note! Requires an eyepiece to hold cover to camera and maintain waterproofing.

Sport Shield rain covers are designed to protect professional cameras and lenses from adverse weather conditions such as wind, rain, salt air, and sand. They are manufactured using a versatile, high-performance, and Multi-Layer Barrier Fabric System. This design seals the fabric with a series of coatings or "layers" that prevent driving rain, water, snow or dust from entering the fabric. 1
The Multi Layer Barrier Fabric System "sandwiches" the textile. The outside face is treated with a Teflon water-repellant finish preventing surface absorption of water, dirt, dust and oil. The inside surface is coated with three successive layers of a specially engineered formula which combine to create a tough, durable and permanent waterproof system. 2

      I used this in Alaska, where the guide called my 400mm f2.8 "the big Ma-mu". It works. It secures to the lens with an adjustable neoprene skirt that is very effective. Personally, I don't like the integral elastic located at the lens mount. I'm sure this is to keep the windows in body visible. Vertically oriented shots will still be dry, although, on a D3 you eill not be able to reach the vertical shutter release - As the body must be turned to the right to prevent water coming in through the hand hole.

      Poor results from an expensive product

      By Barty63

      from Dubai

      Comments about SS-600 Sport Shield Rain Cover (Camouflage):

      I purchased this product as I do a lot of photography in tropical areas. I had to use it a lot in Ghana recently where I have to say I was very disappointed.In short bouts of light rain there is no issue and it does the job. Unfortunately it does not do the job during downpours as I found to my cost. A heavy downpour that lasted 30 minutes soaked the cover through and I was shocked to feel how damp it had become on the inside of the cover. Clearly it would have been much worse without it but nevertheless I did have issues with my gear for sometime afterwards, nothing permanent I am glad to say. If you anticipate torrential rain then this is not the cover for you.

          Comments about SS-600 Sport Shield Rain Cover (Camouflage):

          this sport shield was being used on 2 different camera bodies (canon markiv and 5dmii) (yes, i did buy the respective eye pieces, at [$] per), with 400 and 600 mm lengths. imagine being on a boat 500 miles from the north pole, temp a balmy 40f so not a factor in the cracking, and having the rear window poly crack the first time out in the rain. it never came out again - and boy did i need it. also, almost beside the point - make sure you have about an extra half hour to suit up your camera because it's that complex to put on. when i'm shooting in weather, wildlife arrives like weather - when it does - and being ready means having time and simplicity. this has neither. save your money and point yourself toward another product.

            I am a wildlife photographer and bought this cover for my trip to Yellowstone. However when I received the cover I did not realize that I needed the eye piece also. So I got online and ordered it. Luckily it got here in time for my trip. THIS COVER WILL NOT WORK WITHOUT THE EYE PIECE. IT SHOULD BE INCLUDED WITH THE COVER. I was so glad that I ordered this product. I did not miss the big bull moose because it was raining. I also was out there when the rain turned to snow. I was able to stay and photograph the Buffalo and Elk in the snow. There wasn't any leaking and is so easy to put on and take off. Allot of people asked me about the cover, I told them how much I liked it and suggested they purchase it. Thank you Aquatech for making a great product.

                If you own a $10,000 lense, spending another [$] to protect it whilst on a shoot makes good sense. This is a great product, I have the shots to prove it. While everyone else headed for shelter when a storm blew over with my Aqua Tech sports cover I was able to stay on the job and take the shots I needed. I highly recommend this product to those who are serious about out door photography. GO AND GET ONE!

                    If you spent 4-8K for a lens then it is worth the investment to protect it and this rain cover is worth the money. I bought this for my Canon 400 2.8 lens to shoot a NCAA football game in the rain. It's construction is extremely durable and once you get the hang of it is fairly simple to put on.

                    If you have a zoom type lens then this could cause some difficulty in running the zoom but for a fixed lens it worked well. Worked best when I had the lens attached to my monopod. Don't forget to get the correct eye piece, I recommend visiting the manufacturers web page to get the updated list of eye pieces for your camera.

                    For use as a professional sports photographer, the result is superb, the camera is dry and without moisture condensation.
                    Quick and easy use, very comfortable and manageable, fully waterproof.
                    Price too, uncomfortable to use controls from the outside

Over the years I have used many different “Camera Rain Coats” but none compare with the unequaled quality and performance that this product offers. Aqua Tech Sport Shields are a small price to pay for the outstanding protection they offer the equipment that earns me a living. Thank you Aqua Tech.

                          I recently purchased the Aqua Tech Sports Shield for use with my Canon 400mm f/2.8 lens. I used it for the first time last weekend shooting the Kentucky Oaks and Derby and the Aqua Tech withstood even the heaviest of downpours. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone looking for weather protection for their long glass. Also fits 600mm lenses. Based on this product, I will be purchasing the smaller zoom version for wide angle glass soon.
