    Hoodie Lens Hood Cover (Medium, Forest Green Camo) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 106.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Snug Fit, Great Protection This thing works great. It protects my 24-105mm Canon L lens, with Hoya polarizing filter attached, better than Hoya's filter cap did. Plus, the Hoya cap kept falling off (and I finally lost it that way). I don't expect to lose this hoodie, because it slips over the lens very snugly. I did dock it just one star for two reasons: #1 -- It's nearly impossible to slip it on the lens using one hand, so keep in mind that you'll have to have both hands available, which could be awkward and might slow you down a bit. #2 -- This is essentially just an appopriately-shaped small hunk of neoprene. Thus, as with so much photographic gear, it is overpriced for what it is. But it does its job better than a normal lens cap, and for that it deserves a good review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! But get the fit right. For those of us who hate fumbling with screw-in lens hoods the Hoodie is truly wonderful. Remove the lens cap, screw in the lens hood. Measure the diameter of your lens hood and find the best fit Hoodie. Now you can leave the lens hood on the lens and have padded protection for the front element, and have your lens ready for use much faster. Hoodies have a padded disk the diameter of the smallest fit spec; i.e., 2.75 for the X-Small. While it can be stretched to its maximum spec 3.25 that's far too tight in my opinion. Better to buy the next size up that starts at 3.25. The Hoodie's construction is first rate and it has a very professional look. The Medium works great for the screw-in hood mounted on the 85mm f/1.4D AF-Nikkor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good addition for Nikon 14-24 I use the Hoodie on a Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8. That lens has a fixed hood that just shields the large, curved objective lens. The Nikon lens cap slides over the hood. I wanted extra protection for the objective (snug fit, padding), and the Hoodie does just that. It's a snug fit; I put it on the lens and leave it there to keep it stretched out a little. Use care when removing it (or putting it on) so that you don't smudge the objective. I put the camera down on its back (i.e., the lens pointed skyward) to put it on or take it off. Not a flaw with the Hoodie; the huge objective element on this lens is just that exposed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only buy if you need the plastic insert These are identical to a similar product made by Op/Tech, which is much cheaper. The main difference is that these lenscoat ones have a foam disc insert in them which gives the cap some rigidity. If you don't need or don't want this, save a lot of money and get the Op/Tech version instead (which does not seem to have the foam insert). Otherwise they work pretty well. I use these as part of a form-fitting neoprene sleeve/pouch that I put my lens into, which gives it enough protection to be put into a hiking backpack without all the bulk of a more traditional lens case. Important when you're hiking and shooting as weight and bulk are two things you want to cut down on.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit This cover was suggested by B&H photo as a perfect accessory for the Nikon 14-24 mm wide telephoto. Although a nice cover, it will not fit the lens. You would think B&H would do there homework.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super padding, a lot to work with Combined with the lenscoat cover for my Nikkor 70-300mm lens, I had total protection, enough to feel confident about storing the lens in my padded camera bag outside of a lens can. I am not sure the hoodie is really required though when working outside of the bag and the camera is rigged. Without a cord to connect the hoodie to the camera, it's a pain to keep track of, and the lenscoat cover is good protection in itself. The hoodie stays on best when the hood is deployed and not in reverse position, which is the opposite of when I'll use it most, i.e. when the camera is in the bag in transit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect on the 14-24... Wanted something different than the original 'lens cap' for the Nikon 14-24 lens, so got one of these. It fits very well, easy to put on and take off and you can even put it in your pocket when using the lens. I would buy it again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed There has to be something out there that's useful for protecting a very valuable lens, but this isn't it. It provides some basic protection from scratches when the lens isn't in use, but easily comes off and needs to be stored (along with the lens cover) when the lens is actually in use. One more thing that keeps a journalist or wildlife photographer busy trying to keep gear together, causing him/her to miss the shot.
