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.

Just what you need to protect your gear from the elements.

Great weather shield, not quite as long as I thought it was

Even after taking the measurements of my lens and camera, it wasn't quite as long as I had hoped. BUT that being said, it's a great shield for the elements and I'd buy it again.

So Far So Good

I have had this for about a month and have mainly used it in light snow and rain. It is big enough to cover my camera with a 300mm prime lens. To date it has kept everything snug and dry.

Works better than expected!

I so far have only needed to use it once on my Z 6II with the lens adapter, 2x TC and the 500 PF to take images of Snowy Owls in single-digit temps and heavy snow showers. I put my rechargeable hand warm inside the bag and it seemed to help keep the battery warmer. FYI, the 2X TC and lens adapter works A+ on the Z6 II with no negative effects! See https://backcountrygallery.com/ for a super technical review of the TC and lens converter!!

The rain shield works for the most part, sometimes moisture gets through but that is due to the dampness in the air itself. But it does protect the lens from the worst.

Good size and prize

Good size and prize. I wish it is a little bit thicker fabric.

Nice weather shield

I like the idea, but it hasn't been much use to me. I've tried it once, was too much of a hassle, continued to use the camera without it. Best for landscape or portraits... not so much with moving subjects).

This can be used to cover those $thousand dollar lenses you may have in your bag. Yes, it is a little clumsy to use, but to protect my investment it is worth the hassle. I generally keep expensive pieces of equipment for a long time and keep them in good shape.

Would any of these Ruggard Rain Shields work with a Sony PXW-X70 camcorder? I've looked at the listed accessories on the X70 page but aren't crazy about any of them. Thanks.
Asked by: Bob
Though it isn't necessarily made for the Sony PXW-X70, it will cover it and it will work to protect it when shooting in the rain.

My Canon R5 with RF 100-500mm extended measures 17" from back of eyepiece to front of lens hood. Measured to the back of the lens hood it is 14". Is this Medium size the right one?
Asked by: Richard
Either the medium or large would be a half-decent choice, but it'll be up to your preference. The medium should fit snugly and can also be used cinched half-way on the hood rather than all the way. The large can be semi-scrunched up in order to accommodate a slightly shorter lens.
