Comments about Think Tank Photo Hydrophobia Rain Cover 300-600 V2.0 (Black):

Think Tank never ceases to amaze me. It's consistently the most well though-out stuff and this rain cover is no exception. The material is excellent quality. It has just the right amount of adjustability. Fit my 400 2.8 right out of box, but has the extension piece to make it longer for a 600 f4 and the second loop for the velcro fastener on the hood that makes it tighter for a 300 2.8. And the pouch for the cap...and the pouch for the eyepiece...and the ability to roll it up without removing it from the hood all make this thing amazing.

    Comments about Think Tank Photo Hydrophobia Rain Cover 300-600 V2.0 (Black):

    I purchased this for a recent trip to Maryland's Eastern Shore. It fit beautifully on a Nikon 600mm. I had also intended to use it for my 400mm. While I did not try it on the smaller lens, it appears to have a lot of extra material for it. It did keep the 600mm free from rain, spray and sand.

    I use this product for action sports and wildlife photography. It keeps my equipment dry so that I can get shots I need.

        I use this to shoot high school and college sports.
        What I like best about this rain cover is it's easy and quick to put on my camera when needed.

          This rain jacket is well made and relatively easy to use. It's considerably easier to install and remove than a comparable AquaTech rain jacket.

              I originally purchased a cheap rain cover for my 400 mm lens. After the second year of hassle dealing with a cheap one, I upgrade to the Think Tank Hydrophobia Rain Cover. Without the extension, it is a perfect fit for the Canon 400 mm f 2.8 lens. You do not worry about your gear getting wet with this cover. Great quality and protection but it does come at a price.

                  Too big for a 400mm. There is just too much fabric. Used this on a Fjords tour in Alaska on a canon 100-400mm and a 5DMarkIII. It was just too big. I had purchased this for my husband and his 7D with 400mm prime, still too big. They say the eyepiece for the 7D won't work with a 5D, but it does so don't know what that is about. My husband ended up using the canon rain cover and it was perfect. I think this is phenomenal for use with super telephotos such as 500 or 600 mm primes that have large diameter lenses. Otherwise, it's just too big. Great packing case, great hood cover, well though out holes, well made. We encountered lots of rain but the gear stayed dry.

                  It's a small price to pay for protection of expensive photography equipment.
                  As a nature photographer I'm not limited to being a fair- weather photographer when I use my Hydrophobia for camera protection.

                      Great product. I got soaked but the camera was dry. It sure beats the plastic bag with rubber bands trying to hold it in place.

                        It's really a rather simply decision to make. If you want the best weather protection bag, buy this one. Like all Think Tank products, it is well designed and made. The plastic back cover is NOT cheap plastic that will crinkle, crack and gets creases in it. It is soft and supple. I actually look forward to shooting in the rain so I can get my moneys worth. True.

                          Spent 5 hours on a cold and rainy Saturday afternoon shooting college lacrosse and my equipment was dry as a bone. Then 3 days later shot during monsoon type rains and wind and again dry as a bone. Its a wonderful product that I was reluctant to buy because of the expense but now am very happy and wont hesitate to shoot in heavy rain.
