waterproof , versatile
I bought one of these to protect my camera on a RIB trip out to grassholm to photograph diving gannets, after a previous trip killed my 10D (salt spray)
It proved to be extremely good at its job and kept out all salt spray etc, I would rate it as one of the best waterproof covers on the market , the only way to better it would be to buy a sub aquatic housing which is far more expensive.
The only drawbacks are that it is difficult to change lenses with it on , and also that it is not waterproof against dips in the ocean only against rain and spray. Also at nearly 200 notes it isnt cheap , but it is well worth every penny.
