      Comments about Think Tank Photo Hydrophobia Rain Cover 70-200 (Black):

      It's so good, I bought three of them. Keeps the camera dry. The window is a great feature so I can still see the screen on the back of the camera.

        Comments about Think Tank Photo Hydrophobia Rain Cover 70-200 (Black):

        I haven't used the product at this point, but I did put it all together with my camera and 70-200 lens. It seems to be well constructed and more than able to keep my gear dry in inclement conditions. I purchased the eyepiece specific for my D4 and I should be able to use the camera easily while encased in the protective gear....

          Never Fear... Hydrophobia is here!

          I've tried them all and hands down this one is the winner. It's my super hero when the weather turns and I still have shooting to do. Considering the gear it's protecting I think the price is good too.

            Great cover. I like it because it has a clear window on the back and allows you to completely enclose your camera and still utilize the screen. I also like the design of the special eye pieces and how they work together.

                This is a well-made, well-designed product. The only knock is it is kind of bulky, but that's better than using a flimsy rain cover when you have thousands of dollars worth of camera/lens to protect.

                Comments about Think Tank Photo Hydrophobia Rain Cover 70-200 (Black):

                I bought the Hydrophobia to use on a D700 with 70-200. Sunday, I shot Soccer in the rain with a D800 and 300mm 2.8 VRII so I figured I'd see whether the Hydrophobia would work. I've had this lens for 1 week and wouldn't have taken it into the rain unless I had complete confidence in the Hydrophoobia. The Hydrophobia actually fit so snugly around 300mm that I felt completely secure. It was harder to install but in the end everything including the hood cover (which is part of Hydrophobia) fit perfectly. The bottom line with the Hydrophobia is that it takes a little practice and patience to install but gives you complete and total comfort in the rain. It isn't easy to install but it isn't unreasonably diffucult either and when you are taking $10K in equipment into the rain what you really want is peace of mind. I'm going to get 2 more Hydrophobias because they are THAT GOOD. I don't want easy, I want good. I don't want cheap, I want something that works so well I never even thought about it. Hydrophobia = Peace of Mind.
