Vortex Media Storm Jacket Reviews

A must for wildlife photography

I always carry one of these in my backpack when I go out birding with my D500 and 500mm f5.6 PF. The material is a good balance of durability and light-weight/packability. On days when a rain storm can roll in out of nowhere, it is great to be able to quickly throw this over the lens for protection. I carry my 500mm by the tripod foot, so I appreciate the velcro opening in the bottom of this storm cover, which allow the foot to stick out without letting rain in. If you plan to actually shoot in the rain on a regular basis this product may not be the best option, as it is kind of hard to access the viewfinder and controls through the elastic opening. However, it is perfect for my needs. I just wish the medium size pro version came in camo!

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.

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.

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.

The Vortex Media Pro SLR Storm Jacket Camera Cover, Medium (Black) is too small and not the correct shape to fit the Sony PXW-Z280 4K 3-CMOS 1/2" Sensor XDCAM Camcorder. The PortaBrace Quick Rain Slick Cover for Sony PXW-Z150 will also fit the Sony PXW-Z280. Here is the link: https://bhpho.to/3LuCsPG

question

I have this product in the non-pro version & love it. It is a small and works great with my 5DM3 & 70-200. Now I want the pro model for the tripod opening, but it does not come in the small size. Is the medium size going to be too large ?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Vortex Media Pro SLR Storm Jacket Camera Cover (Medium) can accommodate lens/camera combinations from 7 up to 15 . The Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L alone measures 7.8 long, and so this Storm Jacket will fit.

Asked by: dean
No, I would not recommend the Vortex Media Pro SLR Storm Jacket Camera Cover, Medium (Black), B&H # VOPSJMB, for use with the Sony PXW-X180 Full HD XDCAM Handheld Camcorder. The Vortex Media Pro SLR Storm Jacket Camera Cover is designed for DSLR cameras and does not have access or view for the controls on a camcorder. I would instead recommend the Porta Brace RS-PXW180 Rain Slicker for Sony PXW-X160/X180 Camera, B&H # PORSPXW180, or the ORCA OR-102 Rain Cover for Select Sony, Panasonic, JVC, and Canon Camcorders, B&H # OROR102, for use with the Sony PXW-X180 Full HD XDCAM Handheld Camcorder. They are designed for the features of the camcorder and have access to the controls of the camcorder.
