Ruggard RC-FC717 Overview

  • 1Description

Protect your camera from the rain, dust and mud with the easy-to use, lightweight, Medium, 17", 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 15" 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 15" 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-FC717 Reviews

    Fabric Rain Shield Medium (17-) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update Ruggard 17 rain cover As others have mentioned in their ratings the cover slides off the lens hood during zooming because there is nothing to keep in place while zooming.  However, I have found that if you do not tighten the front draw string up tight around the lens barrel the lens zooms freely and unobstructed while the rest of the lens and camera that are not waterproof still remain protected.   You may have to work with it a little depending on your setup, but all in all it it worth the money and does work.  It makes rainy sporting events far less worrisome. Love it!   Still 5 stars!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good way to protect your camera and lens in the rain My intent was to use my DSLR in gentle rain (not blowing rain or snow) and this cover worked as advertized. Easy to install, and good accessibility to all camera and tripod controls. I expect a decent life out of this cover based on the materials used and seams. Folded up, it takes very little room in gear bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great...especially for the price PROS:  Great price!  Fabric is of very good quality and thin & lightweight enough to enable me to carry this cover all the time, just in case.   Elasticized cinch cords stretch and grab well.  Opening in bottom closes with velcro and is large, enabling tripod or hand carrying/holding with my Black Rapid strap.   Material is thin enough that I can operate my lenses zoom rings from outside the cover by simply grabbing the lens through the fabric.   CONS:  Fabric is water resistant rather than water proof.  I wish the interior of the front opening had a sticky band that grips the lens hood so the cover wouldnt slip from the hood onto the the lens barrel.  My workaround to keep the front in place involves positioning the covers opening over one or two of the lens hoods four blades.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Much Better Than A Towel Southern California has been in a drought until recently when it started raining. So I didn't have a rain cover for my camera. I wanted to document the rain to post on social media, but I had to remain under the eves of the roof or on a porch. I tried a towel over the camera, but that didn't work very well. So I finally got a Ruggard Medium Rain Shield. When it rained last night, I rushed out at 2:30 am with my Canon 70D and 18-135mm lens safely protected. I was hand holding, so I put my left hand through the bottom (tripod) opening of the cover, and my right hand through the rear opening, so I was holding it normally. Only the lens hood got wet since it was tapered and the draw strings would not stay on it--they slid off the back. I was very happy with this purchase and now ready to venture into more rain storms. The photo is what I took while it was raining last night with some Photoshop lens flares added.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light but good protection Better than just a large clear bag/baggy. Looks professional and will protect better my equipment. ?The pull cords help keep the cover in place and will be better for rain or windy rain. There is an opening for the tripod as well as the opening for the lens in front and the LCD screen in back. ?Bought a small for shorter lenses and the medium for telephotos that extend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets my needs I own a Nikon D500 and currently my only lens is a 70-200mm. I needed something that would protect this expensive set up from rain and sea spray and this definitely fits this sized setup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised! GREAT! I bought a medium ( 17) for my 70-300 zoom lens set up which measures 15.5 total ( extended ) from of the lens hood to back of camera body.  Love it works great!  I have no issues with rotating the zoom from outside the cover or operating the camera from the back opening in the cover.
