Vortex Media Storm Jacket Reviews
This is great to protect cameras from the mist and rain. Fits perfect for my Canon.
Superb stuff but..
There are so many out there and each one has its drawback. This particular one is very simple to use. Just for a sizing reference, Ive used this with my D750 body and the Nikon 70-300mm VR lens fully extended and length-wise there were a few more inches left on the cover. The opening at the bottom is particularly helpful to do your thing with the lens and tripod mount. Kept my gadgets dry without issues. Used it during a heavy downpour in NYC. Drawbacks: 1. If its windy, be cautious. The cover acts as a barrier and will catch up with the gusts. Its very likely the camera, if mounted on a tripod, might be toppled over. Gotta have a solid support in windy conditions. 2. When extending or contracting the lens, the front drawstring will not be strong enough to hold on to the lenshood since its not a rough surface. During downpours, this could be a problem. As a workaround, I put on a thick and tight rubber band on the lens hood and put the cover in front of that. That will keep the cover from slipping away when the lens is fiddled with. Highly recommended.
Does the trick
Its a rain cover... keeps the water out and is easy to put on.
I’m a landscaper photography and this cover is the best I’ve found, I had one for years but left it in my rental car in my last trip. This cover has an opening for a tripod, so it’s perfect for landscaper photographers. Four stars only because is I wish the lens end was a bit more secret, maybe anti slip coating on the inside or a clamp to secure it in the lens end.
Perfect for keeping your gear dry
I do a lot of outdoor events, and this is always in my bag. I've used other camera covers (the cheap plastic ones) and this one is so much better. Yes it is somewhat of a burden to use your camera while in the storm jacket, however you will find the same thing with every rain cover. I definitely think this is one of the better, easier covers to use.
Let's go back to the drawing board
With the camera mounted on a tripod the raincoat is good. If you are on the go it can be cumbersome. There is an opening at the bottom secured with velcro that allows your left hand to enter and operate the camera's zoom. I need to use two hands to open the velcro. A zipper would be a better design, you'll need only one hand . An elastic band for the front lens opening would be quicker and easier than the pull cord. Don't plan on changing lenses either till you find shelter or someone holds an umbrella.
