    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.

        Comments about Ruggard RC-P18" Rain Cover for DSLR with Lens up to 18" (Pack of 2):

        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.

                    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.

                        Used it the day it arrived, we had flash floods here in Las Vegas. It held up okay, not fantastically, but adequately. Caused stickiness inside sleeve, but tolerable. Not designed for major rainfall in buckets all at once but is suitable for light rain long enough to get your shots. A bit of a hassle wrapping camera, takes a bit of patience. Overall worth having, the price is right.

                          Comments about Ruggard RC-P18" Rain Cover for DSLR with Lens up to 18" (Pack of 2):

                          It is a little awkward operating from underneath instead of having two sleeves on each side (like some more expensive models). However, it fits a dslr with 200 lens and works well for the price.

                          sloppy fit but will work in a pinch

                            not very impressive... needs more room to get your hands in and a little less room for the lens. yet, for the price, it works and they are small enough to stow in a backpack or camera bag

                            I should have purchased this years ago.

                                I used one of the rain covers for the first time this past weekend and it paid for itself in one day. It is easy to use and covers my camera and lens very well. I was concerned that it might be a one time use but I was out in a pretty hard rain several times and it kept both my camera and lens dry without ripping. I did have a bit of trouble with the eye hole staying put which made it hard to see but, that was probably operator error. Overall, very pleased with the purchase.

                                  I purchased these for the Kayak. I spend a great deal of time on my Kayak and take many pictures. I wanted a way to ensure some coverage incase of storms. I also want to be able to use these when kayaking when drops of water from the paddles hit the camera.
                                  I have not used these yet, but feel great relief knowing I will have this protection.

                                        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!
