      Some of the best shots can be made in wet environments, i.e. spray from waterfalls, spray from waves while on a boat, and even in the rain. For a long time, I have been looking for a lightwight raincover that I could wrap around my DSLR so I can use it under such conditions without having to worry too much.
      The RC-P18 does just that: you can quickly mount it around your DSLR (it is big enough to fit my 70-200mm lens, and certainly even longer lenses).I used the additional long sleave (meant to protect a tripot head as shown),to roll it up and close it with an additional rubber band, so I could wear the camera around my neck without risk of water entering it from 'above'.
      While on leave, I had to use it several times: twice in heavy rain, while on a boat, and when exposed to the spray of a waterfaall - and was fully satisfied. The equipment kept dry, and I could see and access all control buttons through the transparent plastic film. Obviously, the view through your viewfinder is not as clear as without the plastic wrap, but if you pull it tight you have a good enough view to frame your composition. After each use, I dried the plastic foil and folded it to the same minimum size for the next use.
      From now on, it will be a compulsory accessory in my camera bag

      The instructions told me to remove the rubber eyecup... on my Sony A99, I tried and ripped a corner off... not a good start... but I'll carry the rain jacket and maybe it'll help save my expensive camera and lens... might even allow me to shoot in the rain.

        Usually good camera accessories cost a good amount of money and take up a lot of space. This is a happy exception. It does the job well and with ease.

              For the price, these covers are great. I haven't used them yet, but I like having them just in case. They wiegh nothing & take up virtually no space in my bag, so why not? I don't plan on using them in a heavy downpour, but they'd be handy in light rain or near a waterfall.

                    I bought these for my wife to use with her DLSR and 500mm zoom, for use while on vacation in central America. They work well, and since she shoots using the viewfinder and not the back panel, sliding the eye shield off and fitting the plastic over the viewport and putting the eye shield back on worked well and easily. My only true concern is if doing this repeatedly will eventually result in a loose eye shield. The one thing we did not try was putting your head completely inside the cover and shoot in that manner. Otherwise, inexpensive and it does the trick in protecting the camera and lens in rainy conditions.

                        The first time I took this Rain Cover with me, it snowed. I put the Rain Cover on, and it kept my camera and lens completely dry and protected from the weather. Only a couple of drops on the lens-mounted filter that cleaned off quickly with a lens cloth. Kept me shooting great photos in weather that I usually stop taking photos in.

                          Bought these for a trip to a tropical area known for sudden storms. Didn't need to use it but for the price, every DSLR user should have one tucked away - takes no space.

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

                                  Keeps the rain off. It's a little too long, but scissors can fix that.

                                    Simple and practical . It could be a little more durable.

                                        Great rain cover for twice the price. It fits my Sony A99 with the 70/200mm 2.8 lens perfect.

                                        The instructions told me to remove the rubber eyecup... on my Sony A99, I tried and ripped a corner off... not a good start... but I'll carry the rain jacket and maybe it'll help save my expensive camera and lens... might even allow me to shoot in the rain.

                                          Practical product that works well. Keeps your camera and lens dry. Especially helpful for lenses that have a telescoping barrell.
