I use this with the Canon EF 400mm F4 DO and it is really an essential accessory for the lens. The Canon one is bulky, heavy, and is a pain to get on and off. This one is lighter, quick to get on and off, and can be put on the lens when in storage with the hood in reverse, hood on normally, or even just over the front of the lense without the hood. It stays one and does what it should. The little loop on it is also useful for attaching a cord to something like your tripod ring so you don't lose it or let it fall on the ground.

This is also the most economical and reasonably priced product in the entire LensCoat line of products in my opinion. At sub $30, there should be no hesitation in purchasing this to protect your lens.

OKAY Potection, awkward to put on for some reason.

Offers protection. I use this same model (but larger) hoddie on a Canon 600 f/4 II IS USM) too, but on this lens (a Canon 400 DO II IS USM)...Read complete review

Offers protection. I use this same model (but larger) hoddie on a Canon 600 f/4 II IS USM) too, but on this lens (a Canon 400 DO II IS USM) it seems more awkward to put on than the one used on the 600mm. maybe it is just due to the relative size, but using the Canon supplied hoddie is easier in this case.

Comments about Hoodie Lens Hood Cover (XX-Large, Black):

This is a good product, but could be designed better. The XX size does fit the 400 DO ii, but it does take two hands to stretch it enough to get it on. When you're out in the field and hand-holding your rig (even with a strap) it would be nice to have a cap that is easier to slide on. Consequently, I purchased the next size up... xxx large.

LensCoat could easily address this issue by using a design similar to the cap that came with the Canon lens. I don't use that cap because it does not fit well enough with lenscoat attached to the lens hood.

      Comments about Hoodie Lens Hood Cover (XX-Large, Black):

      Nice cover, sticks on better than the Nikon one. Seems like it will last for a bit.
      No cut out for the knob that secures the lens hood when the hood is reversed for storage.
      Kind of nervous to have such expensive glass without a UV filter on the front.

        Nice snug fit and matches the camo lens cover I purchased. Now I can have a lens cover when carrying the lens vice the huge thing Nikon provides with their 200-400 lens. Stitching appears to be durable.

            I just bought a 400mm f2.8 lens recently and wanted to find a lens cap for storage / field bag. This was perfect for the lens (without hood).

            The lenscap is neoprene and fits pretty snugly against the front of the lens. No fear of it falling off by itself.

                      I was a little concerned that the Hoodie would fit the lens hood on the 500. It is tight but it fits. For my purpose tight was important. I am off to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone with a very full (& heavy) camera backpack and space is limited. The Nikon cover is huge and adds enough bulk that it was hard to get the lens into the pack and the Hoodie was the answer.

                      Comments about Hoodie Lens Hood Cover (XX-Large, Black):

                      this is the correct size lens hood cover for a canon FD 500 L when you have the lens hood attached or attached reversed. functions as advertised and doesnt feel cheap. this size would be too big should you leave your lens hood at home, for that reason and there not being either a drawstring or velcro strap to tighten it up for minor size differences, i gave 4 stars instead of 5. however, it does fit perfectly with the hood.

                                Bought to use in place of the awkward Nikon cover for a Nikkor 300mm 2.8.
                                This has a very tight fit. You have to use two hands to put on. I hope this will stretch a little over time. This was what kept me from giving the item 5 stars. Other than the tight fit, this is a nice product and I still would rather use than the Nikon supplied one.

                                  Purchased for my new Nikon 300mm f/2.8G AF/S VRII telephoto lens for front lens protection while walking around in the field,etc. A little big, but will do? Much smaller & compact then the bulkier, rather clumsy to remove Nikon supplied one that came with lens. Only time will tell if I decide to go back using the Nikon supplied one?

                                    I replaced the factory hood with this one on a Canon 400mm DO. It is a big improvement. The Canon cover was a pain to use this one is far superior and lighter.

                                    Comments about Hoodie Lens Hood Cover (XX-Large, Digital Camo):

                                    I recently purchased a 110mm scope to use for dedicated Herschel Wedge white light solar observing. The scope has a machined front lens cover. It has fairly fine pitched threads, and I cross-threaded it. I was able to get the cover off, but looked for an alternative. I saw this item, and purchased the black version. One of the best accessories I've ever spent coin on!! Great snug fit, easy on and off. Workmanship looks fine. Only regret is that I didn't get the digital camo version, and that's not much of a regret!
