Excellent help for unexpected light rain storms. This product performs well for short periods when you're out and it rains. It's not good for long periods of heavy rain.

not bad, but the image is a bit deceptiv

I think it will work well enough and it's very portable, but it's smaller than I thought it would be, with a smaller overhang on the back than I expected. I thoink the camera in the image must be a crop sensor/smaller slr body, cause my full-frame body barely fits under it. Also, the material is light-weight rip-stop nylon. I thought the image looked like cardura, or some other heavier material. Can't complain for the price though.

This is a great product to use in light rain or heavy fog conditions. Easily folded up and stored in its own bag. The storage bag also has a handy clip.

Id visited yosemite, in a special night, for the moonrow, with John Senser support and hat camera works fine to protect my camera from the misty.

Perfect for protecting your investment from dust, sand, dirty environments. Did not test in the rain, but design makes me confident it will be fine for light to medium showers at a minimum.Make sure you use the included Velcro fasteners to customize to your camera/lens combo.Permanent addition to my camera bag.Highly recommended.

I bought this to replace the disposable rain covers I get from Optech,,those are fine,,but I wanted something that was more of a cover than an enclosure..

Very useful. On 5D mark III with 100 mm lens provided full access to controls and manual focus while keeping gear dry in light to moderate rain. Easily attached, compact and light weight. Internal pocket is handy for keeping remote shutter release dry.

Nice Raincoat for my Camera

I got this because they recommended getting something like this for shooting the Moonbow at Yosemite. It went on my camera nice and I was ready to use it, but there wasn't a lot of mist, so I didn't end of needing it after all. It will be nice to have it in the future!
