      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!

      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.

          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.

                                  Great size to use with many lenses as possible. Very strong plastic as well. Used them to shoot waterfalls from very close distance and my cameras stayed perfectly dry.

                                        I used the rain cover for my d700 with a 80-200 f2.8 lens attached on a tripod. I found it a bit awkward to put on and use, but provided adequate rain protection.

                                        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.
