    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.

    Better than a plastic bag

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

          This will probably work in a pinch but I'd only have it in my bag for an emergency. The bag is not all that secure when tied down to my lens hood with the attached cord. I'm afraid water will trickle down the lens and onto the camera. Haven't really used it in the rain yet. Since I'm not in the habit of taking my camera out in the rain it will be in my bag if I really need to get that shot in the rain.

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

              This product is a great solution when you are caught in a rain shower.

              Why would you use it rather than a plastic bag (shower cap, zip-lock, grocery, newspaper, etc.)? Simple, there is a draw string on the front to hold the plastic firmly around the lens and keep the plastic out of your photographs.

              You can see and operate the camera through the bag.

              The one drawback with this product is that the camera strap holds the camera in a position that faces the rain if you are using the strap. However the bag is long and can cover most of the back. The would be a challenge in a heavy downpour.

              This cover was helpful just last week while photographing tortoises in the Galapagos.

              No one will mistake this for something Patagonia makes, but it is a fine backup for when it gets wet. I used it in the snow and it really helped (but not with the cold, obviously).

                    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 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.

                                    I will use it in the rain.
                                    It is well done... but i do not think that will be usable for a long time

                                          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.

                                          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.
