OP/TECH USA 8001122 overview

  • 1Description

The black, medium OP/TECH USA Hood Hat is designed to fit a lens and shade with a diameter from approximately (8.9 to 10.3 cm). Simply placing the Hood Hat onto the front of the hood while in place will provide just as much protection for the critical front lens elements as would be provided by a traditional lens cap. The neoprene material will adjust to fit both round and elliptical "petal-type" shades.

Lens hoods with significantly larger opening than the lens diameter may require larger model hood hat. This item is made in the USA.

Neoprene stretches for a custom fit on round or elliptical "petal-type" shades
Protects lens and shade against dust, moisture and impact
Cylindrical design for better fit

    Hood Hat, Medium is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 42.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for rectangular hoods I use a Voigtlander 21mm f/4 LTM lens with its rectangular hood (LH-1). Trying to put a 39mm lens cap on the front of the lens with the hood installed is a challenge. This little hat lets me keep the hood on at all times, and yet prevents me from having to worry about the sun burning a hole in my shutter curtain if I walk around with an uncapped lens (I use a Leica IIF or IIIG, both of which have cloth shutters). It is bulky enough that you will not forget to remove it when actually shooting. For the Voigtlander 35mm f/2.5 with its LH-2 hood, I use the small version of the hood hat. The same excellent results ensue!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not easy to put on I bought this thinking the sides were rigit enough so it would be easy to put on. But the sides are soft and don't hold their form. These are designed to go over your lens hood. I knew that when I bought it, so no problem there. My hodd is a tulip shaped one. You need two hands to put it on. I thought maybe the tulip shape would be easier than a full round hood, as you can stretch it on one of the tulips and then the other, but as you slide it down, it caves in on the sides so the shorter parts of the tulip get caught, so you then need to grab those edges and pull them out.It works and seems to be the right diameter, as I didn't have to really stretch it. The main problem is that it doesn't sit open like in the picture, the sides are soft and tend to fold in on itself. YOu will need two hand to put it on and its not a quick on. Will I end up using it often, is the question, or is it too much trouble to put on? Not worth sending back for the price, but not as convenient as I would have expected.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good, simple lens hat For price, very happy with this lens hat. Design is simple and effective. Not making me jump up and down in excitement, but gets the job done. It fits on the lens I bought it for but just a shade looser than I hoped. It's hard to nail every lens, so I'm not holding that against them. I don't think it's going to fall off casually standing around, but it's something I worry a little about if I'm very active when using it. If had a more elastic cuff, like an elastic draw-cord system or something, would allow more custom fit ... but then the price would be higher. I liked the low price. Not perfect, but few items are, so a solid 4 stars and I would recommend it if you need a lens hat. Price makes it a definite buy again if I need another.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great protection I have these on all my lenses and fit these around the reversed hoods. That extra bit of foam gives me peace of mind when they're in the camera case, so that hard edges aren't banging against each other. Buy one size smaller than you think you need because they eventually stretch-out a bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Product Would buy again Simple to use. Protects against unexpected bumps. Several sizes, measure the lens diameter including shade. Folds/compresses into smaller size - store in a pocket when not in use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect solution The perfect solution for a lens that requires a screw on hood. With the hood hat it is no longer necessary to to take the hood off to store it, when not in use.
