    Took this during a high school football game I was covering for the local paper, and the rain came down in sheets. It wasn't a problem with this rain cover, just take a look. Photo was shot with the Nikon D7000 using the 70-200 f2.8 VRII. Love this!

    I bought these for "emergency" use, but haven't had the opportunity to try one out yet.

    I had a bit of a time trying to fit one over a Canon 40D with a 120-400 f4 Sigma to be mounted on a Jobu gimbal mount... had to cut a hole in the bottom of the cover to accommodate the lens foot/adapter plate, but considering the low cost and that you get two in the pkg, I still consider this a good product and a good deal.

        Awesome solution to unexpected changes in the weather conditions. The cover is easy to keep in a pocket and you never know when it will be needed.
        Nice and affordable way to protect the camera and lens while not stopping shooting during the rain.
        It doesn't fit perfect to my camera and telephoto lens (it is longer than my lens), but with some minor adjustments it works well. Affordable price for a good product.

          Used it on my Canon Rebel t4i with an 18-135mm. Works well. It initially took some figuring out since I had never used a rain cover before. Considering the price, I would definitely recommend.

            Good product for safeguarding your $$$ lens from rain. It looks and fits way better then the grocery store plastic bags. And you can capture pics easily while this is on. However, I do use wide rubber band at the front side instead of just relying on the thin rope.

              I bought this rain cover to keep in my bag to protect my camera and lens in a rain or snow storm.. I have used it while photographing eagles on the Delaware River in a rain storm.

                  I have always gotten a little nervous photographing outdoors when the weather looks like it's about to pour down rain. I haven't used this yet, but it's in my camera bag in case of emergencies.

                        Sure, the intended purposes are generally for photography. Nevertheless, it works all the same for DSLR cinematography as well! Blizzards, downpours, dust, mud, you name it. Your life (camera) is inpenetrable to virtually any circumstance ahead. Just yesterday I took mine out for a hunt after the greatest imagery available in the rain for the first time (scared of course), and after coming back inside to see the true underlying results, everything was dry to my relief. Yet, it is rather arduous to fold up.

                              Every event/sport photographer should have a rain cover stashed away somewhere in their bag. The Ruggard is light, durable, and has saved my butt a few times when rain just pops up in FL.

                                  For the money you can't beat it, could it be better of course.

                                    It's basically a plastic bag that goes over your camera. Haven't had the chance to test it in the rain yet, but appears it'll serve it's purpose.

                                      It rains a lot in New Zealand, so a rain cover is a must. These are durable and work with pretty much all reg lenses.

                                        Worked exactly as I expected. Was also big enough to handle my 80-400 lens. Good quality cover.
