Ruggard RC-FC723 Overview

  • 1Description

Protect your camera from the rain, dust and mud with the easy-to use, lightweight, Large, 23", Fabric Rain Shield from Ruggard. This rain shield offers full access to your camera's controls and viewfinder and is designed to accommodate a DSLR with lens up to 21" long and up to 8" in diameter.

Tighten the front cinch cord around your lens hood for a tight, customized and secure fit. Tripod users will appreciate the touch-fastening fabric opening located underneath the shield that conforms to the tripod's shape. A rear cinch cord helps protect the back of the camera from the elements depending upon the size of the camera, and is especially useful for those occasions when the camera isn't being used. Included with the shield is a zippered storage pouch with an attached belt clip. For strength and durability the shield is made of 210D ripstop nylon.

Fits over Camera and Lens
The Rain Shield is designed to fit a camera and lens combination measuring 21" from the rear of the camera body to the front of the lens. Use with a lens hood is recommended so the rain shield can offer complete protection to the front of the lens.
Water Resistant
When shooting in inclement weather, this rain shield will protect your camera and lens from rain, snow, and moisture. Water-resistant 210D ripstop nylon ensures that moisture won't reach your camera.
Adjustable Bungee Closures
The adjustable bungee closures assure a snug fit so water or moisture can't reach the camera or lens. With enough extra room, the closures can completely surround the camera and lens when not in use or when the weather is too bad to shoot.
Handheld or Tripod Use
The Rain Shield can be used during handheld shooting, or while mounted on a tripod. The convenient bottom opening is designed to fit over a tripod mount
Carry Pouch
The included carry pouch conveniently hangs from your belt or camera bag so you can take your rain shield anywhere and be prepared to use it anytime.

    Ruggard RC-FC723 Reviews

    Fabric Rain Shield Large (23-) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are very pleased with this product. We recommend it. We purchased two Ruggard Fabric Rain Shields (large) to protect two FinishLynx Fusion Cameras, along with the mounted remote positioner on each. While we have a lot of experience timing track meets, this was a first for us to be producing finish images and timing at a USSA Nordic National Championship. The environment for XC skiing is much more harsh than what we experience at most track meets. We needed protection from rain, snow, sleet and blowing snow. The shield is large enough to enclose both the camera and the remote positioner. With one camera, we placed the connection box on top of the camera, and there was sufficient room for this also. The velcro tabs allow for a good seal on the both the bottom of the shield, where the assembly is mated to a geared head, and also on the back of the assembly, where the cables exit. The product worked very well, providing the protection that is needed for highly expensive equipment. While we didn't prove that it would handle continuous, hard driving rain, it did provide the protection that we needed for rain, snow and sleet. Perhaps the material would eventually absorb water and fail with a long, hard driving rain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Choice for Me I ordered the Ruggard large rain shield for a Nikon D500 camera with a Tamron 150-600mm lens combination. The combo measured 21 in length with the lens fully extended and lens hood attached. I was able to easily and quickly fit the rain shield over the camera and lens that was mounted on a tripod and gimbal head. The front bungee-cord adjusted snuggly around the lens hood, and there was a couple of inches overhang on the back to keep the rear of the camera protected and allow access to the camera controls. I like that the rear opening also has a bungee-cord that can be adjusted. The bottom of the rain shield has a long velcroed opening to accomodate most any tripod rig or allow for adjustment of a zoom lens. And the velcroed opening can be completely or partally closed. Ruggard describes the material as water resistant. Although I have not used this in the rain, I did run water over it. The water ran right off and any water that didn't, just beaded up. Not sure how heavy the rain would have to be to soak it, but I'm confident this will protect my gear in anything that I'm willing to expose myself to. The carry pouch has a swivel clip, measures 4.5 x 7 x 1, and is made of the same material as the rain shield.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Lens Protection The Ruggard Fabric Rain Shield Large (23") is perfect protection for my Tamron 150-600mm lens when going out on those winter days looking for birds and wildlife.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from clumsy but effective have not used this in really bad conditions but clearly it will help protect gear. Almost too large for Canon 7D and 100-400 lens even fully extended and with lens hood. Also, the cinching cord for the end tends to slide off the lens hood, i'll have to jerry rig something to keep it in place. Will be tested in the Darien in Panama soon, until then, can't recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits Well Fits well over a Nikon D850 and Sigma 150-600mm Sport zoomed to 600mm. The bottom of the cover can open almost from end-to-end, which makes putting the cover on easy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, not great What can one say about a fabric rain cover?  Either it works or it doesnt?  The Ruggard Large rain cover protects the lens and camera to a reasonable degree.  It isnt sealed on either end so its fine for light rain or snow though I wouldnt trust it for heavy downpours/blowing conditions.  Its a bit short for long lenses (400, 500, 600 primes) especially if one uses a lens hood (seems counterintuitive as one would use a lens hood to protect the front element.) Beats a plastic bag and it passed the test it in light rains.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked Very Well The rain shield worked very well as I hiked around the Brazilian rainforest.? It is a little awkward moving the zoom in and out but I don't see how any product can get around this.? Easy to put it on and remove.? Was very glad I brought it along for this trip.? Relatively inexpensive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Cover I have not had the chance to use this cover in the rain yet but it is nicely made and fits my Nikon D750 with the 200-500 Nikkor lens with enough room to operate it plus it folds up small enough to tuck it in the camera bag without taking up much space.

    Will this fit the JVC GY-HM620 camera?
    Asked by: Nelson
    No, the Ruggard Fabric Rain Shield Large (23") B&H # RURCFC723, is not compatible for use with JVC GY-HM620 ProHD Mobile News Camera. The Ruggard Fabric Rain Shield is designed for use with DSLR cameras. For a rain protector designed for use with professional video camcorders such as the JVC GY-HM620 ProHD Mobile News Camera, I would recommend the I would recommend the Porta Brace Camera Body Armor for the JVC GY-HM600U ProHD Camcorder (Black), B&H # POCBAHM600B, the camRade wetSuit for JVC GY-HM620/660, B&H # CAWSGYHM620, or the Porta Brace Custom-Fit Rain & Dust Protective Cover for JVC GY-HM620, B&H # PORSHM620, for your usage needs.

    Asked by: Alvin
    The small Ruggard fits my Nikon d5500 with a Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G lens with room to spare. The Ruggard kept my equipment dry in windy and waterfall mist conditions. Very pleased with it.
