      Comments about Strut STR-H4n Protective Cover for H4n:

      I mainly shoot ENG with DSLR cameras and need a seprate audio recording device for recording the audio on interviews.

      The hook on the case makes it easy for me to clip on a carabiner to my belt loop.

      It also comes with velcro so you could attach it to a boompole you use freequently and it wont slide off and on.

      The price is a bit expensive and thats the only reason why I put off buying it and also why I gave 4 stars.

        Comments about Strut STR-H4n Protective Cover for H4n:

        WOW !!!!!!!! After trying what others suggested, we finally found this beautiful case from Struts. They really went out of their way to TEST this so that it would be functional in all situations. You can get to EVERYTHING and it can be belted or hang on your side. You can also change batteries WITHOUT taking it out of the case. THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST CASE FOR THE H4N !!!

        Comments about Strut STR-H4n Protective Cover for H4n:

        I bought the STR-H4n protective cover specifically because it could strap onto my boom pole. We do a lot of location run and gun style shooting and I wanted to make everything as efficient as possible while protecting the equipment. The case works perfectly strapped to the boom pole, but also has options to clip it onto a lanyard or belt via a D-ring. It holds the Zoom H4n very snuggly and provides a nice layer of protection, while being able to access the sides very easily via zippers. The top has a velcro flap that exposes the H4n mics, the bottom is accessible to XLR inputs through a velcro opening. The front clear vinyl protects the display while still allowing all functionality and view ability. I believe the cover is well designed and does what I needed it to do. The only issue I have is that I feel it's expensive for what it is. At [$], I feel the STR-H4n Protective Cover is significantly over-priced.

        Indeed overpriced

        Comments about Strut STR-H4n Protective Cover for H4n:

        Pros: It could indeed be handy if you're recording to the Zoom. I would still buy it if it was cheaper.

        Cons: For what it is, it's seriously overpriced. If I had seen this in a store I wouldn't have paid even half the current price fore it.

        Specifics:
        - Changing the batteries is too inconvenient.
        - It should come with pads, so you can attach it to the non-padded area of the boom without it slipping.
        - As someone else said, for that price it could have at least come with a strap.
        - For that price they can also at least send some pictures/drawings on suggested use.

            This cover allows us to save time and money on low budgeted shoots, as it comfortably attaches to the boom pole for quick and stealthy outdoor shots.

              Comments about Strut STR-H4n Protective Cover for H4n:

              The cover gives you a variety of ways to carry the H4N and access the controls while using. It's superior to a camera based mount because you can attach it to your belt or boom so you can record from anywhere. The one flaw is that it would be nice if it came with a strap.

                Comments about Strut STR-H4n Protective Cover for H4n:

                This case is a nice tight fit over the Zoom H4N. This really helped our boompole wrangler not have to juggle so many things. The stitching is tight in heavy-duty fabric. All of the ports are accessible when the cover is on. I give it four stars because it is a little difficult to change the batteries, for what the case gives me I'm willing to deal with having to take a bit of extra time and care changing batteries. If they wanted to improve the product they might consider including an instruction manual (it comes with no instructions which is not a big deal because it is fairly obvious how it should fit on the Zoom) so you can see all the different ways the case can be worn and include an optional shoulder strap. We currently use a climbing carabiner clipped onto the back ring and two the boom wrangler's belt.

                  This is exactly what I needed. Very well thought out and well made (in America!). I was looking for a way to carry and use the H4n in the field. Strut gave me this and more. I can attach it to almost anything...boom, belt, shoulder mount. Easy battery changes, cables, controls. Does not restrict use at all. Good job Strut.
