Moving a big white (or black) lens near skittish wildlife is like waving your arms – a sure way to flush your subject and ruin what could be a once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity. LensCoat™ Lens Covers mask your 200 mm to 600 mm lens, giving you a better chance at getting the shot.
LensCoat™ Lens Covers are manufactured from 100% closed-cell neoprene, offering protection from bumps, jars and nicks, with a camouflage-pattern fabric cover. LensCoat™ Lens Covers also provide a thermal barrier, protecting your hands from cold lenses in lower temperatures. They are easy to install and remove, leaving no residue on the lens. And LensCoat™ lens covers are waterproof, providing protection in harsh conditions.
Other features include a clear, flexible UV-PVC window over the AF/IS/VR controls and the distance-scale window. The LensCoat™ also features custom holes that reveal the red-dot for easy alignment to the camera body without removing the cover.
LensCoat™ Lens Covers are available for a wide variety of lenses and extenders. LensCoat™ can also make CUSTOM COVERS.

Disguises colour of white lens
Poor cut, thin material offers little protection, very expensive
These articles are over priced. I paid £69 and, when they arrived in a Jiffi bag, I thought 'is that it?'
The material is rather thin, offering protection only against slight knocks and scratches. A harder knock would show these covers up as offering litle protection. Of that I am sure.
The cut is poor, with the fabric not running particularly straight. Probably less of an issue with 600 primes but with my 70-200 IS they look ill-itting, and rather messy.
Its not often I am disappointed with a purchase but these are simply not worth the money. They are marginally more expensive for the big lenses, so for them I think they may be more cost effective than scratching your lovely 600 mil prime but for smaller lenses I would go for a looser cover such as those from Kevin Keatley
