Ruggard PAC-LB overview

  • 1Description

Shooting with a DSLR camera or select camcorder in cold, wet, windy, and inclement weather is much easier and more pleasurable with the black DSLR Parka Cold and Rain Protector from Ruggard. The Parka will accommodate an up to 400mm lens with hood and a speedlight. The water-resistant and windproof nylon outer shell and thick cotton batting help keep your hands and camera warm and protected. The added warmth is also good for extending battery life. A soft, anti-static fleece lining feels good to the touch and helps protect gear from scratches.

An elastic opening and drawstring are used to create a tight fit conforming to the size of the lens. Zippers make installing a camera quick and easy. In addition, there's a zippered top flap with touch-fastening strips for a flash, lower zipper for tripod usage, and elastic openings for your hands. The rear see-through portal facilitates unimpeded viewfinder and LCD viewing. Photographers will appreciate having full access to camera controls and the included storage pouch with drawstring closure.

Nylon Outer Shell
  • The nylon outer shell is water-resistant and wind-proof to protect your camera from the elements and to keep your hands dry when shooting in inclement weather.
  • Cotton Batting
  • Cotton batting inner filling insulates the parka for warmth during cold weather.
  • Fleece Lining
  • A soft anti-static fleece lining protects the camera and provides extra warmth for your hands.
  • Access for a Flash
  • An access flap provides the option of mounting a shoe-mount flash while still taking advantage of the insulation and warmth the parka offers.
  • Tripod Access
  • A dual-zippered opening at the bottom of the parka offers access for mounting your camera on a tripod. The zippers close tightly around the tripod head so warmth won't escape.
  • Hand Holes
  • The hand holes provide access to the interior of the parka to operate your camera.
  • See-through Pane
  • A see-through vinyl pane at the back of the parka gives you a clear view of the camera's LCD display and buttons.

    Ruggard PAC-LB reviews

    DSLR Parka Cold and Rain Protector for Cameras and Camcorders (Black) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth the money Well worth the money. I had fully expected a rain proof cover with a little warmth, but wasn't prepared for this level of quality. If you are looking for a way to keep your hands warm and your camera dry this parka will do the trick. Its easy on and easy off with beefy zippers and an oversized see-through pane in the back for using Live View. The insulation may be cotton but combined with the fleece lining it makes for a warm work environment for your hands. Works with all my lenses (up to 70-200 f 2.8). The drawstrings are easy to operate and I've even used the Velcro pop up lid to allow the use of flash. Love it. Thanks Ruggard!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just an OK product Bought it before New Year and used it in Alaska to take northern light photos. Here is my feedback on this product: Its a good hand warmer to keep my hands comfortable while operating a camera, although it quickly got condensation on the see-through vinyl pane inside and I have to keep clearing it (but not a big deal). One problem is the hand hole openings are made with elastic material, they are very tight. I can get one hand in with other hand help to pull the elastic opening, and then it was very difficult to get other hand in other sleeve. So I cut the elastic hole openings to make my hands be able to in-out easily. I hope the hole openings are made with drawstrings and the user can control the opening. The tight elastic openings on the hand holes are really not necessary because we wear heavy coat in such a cold weather and the end of coat sleeves contact and cover the hole openings. The same type of problem occurs at the front hole opening which is also an elastic material that tightly holds on the lens barrel. It kept getting on the focus ring and it changed the lens focus when I move my hands in/out the hand hole openings (I was shooting northern light and needed the lens stay focus at infinity). And I had to keep correcting it while I was shooting. I wish the front hold opening were also made with drawstring so user can control it. I am attaching two photos to show how tight the front hole opening is. Please note the two draw strings in a photo are used to pull and hold the thick front sleeve back, otherwise it may block the lens to cause vignette. The common problem with many products like this is the designers probably have never used the product they designed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warmth at your fingers reach Okay product, a bit large, but serves its purpose. Fits well and seems to be stitched to last.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satisfied with purchase. Recently purchased, arrived quickly.� Not surprised, as all purchases I've made through B & H arrive in a timely fashion.� Well constructed, durable material. Warm, no need for gloves which makes it easy to make camera adjustments. Rear see-through plastic panel provided sufficient viewing of LCD screen but did steam up if I kept my hands inside for extended time. Guess that's to be expected when hands are kept very warm and plastic panel is exposed to frigid temperatures.� No difficulty getting hands in and out of elastic openings. Would give it a 5 star rating if elastic opening which surrounds lens was adjustable.� However, it was a good fit for my Canon kit lens.� Struggled a little adjusting focus when using in manual mode, should get easier with practice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Camera Parka Well constructed very soft and warm interior to protect gear and keep hands warm. Actually nicer than I though it would be

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a parka I know that seems obvious from the name of the item, but I kind of expected just a covering to keep your hands and camera out of the elements. Nope, this thing is a parka with loads of insulation. Fortunately, the weather has not turned terribly cold yet, so I have not been able to see how warm it keeps the camera and me. From its appearance, it should help quite a bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good to have. Added comfort and protection during the rain and/or cold weather.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from More trouble than it's worth Because it's bulky, it's warm but it's also very clumsy to use. If you're sitting still in a duck blind where you won't be moving around much, it might make sense to use it there. Otherwise, investing in a warm pair of gloves is a much better option.
