The Gitzo Four Season Waterproof Jacket is a full waterproof jacket specifically designed for professional photographers. Following its mission of developing professional photo essentials, Gitzo provides the ultimate and only solution to pro photographers who are looking for maximum protection from rain and wind without compromising with storage and accessibility of their equipment.
The jacket has been developed with the support of pro photographers and includes in its structure all their advices and experience. It is intended to be used in different environments, such as sport events, concerts, downtown and also in naturalistic activities. The construction and materials used are the best ones the technical clothing industry can offer, like sealed seams, Teflon treated nylon, Cordura and Ecodry membrane. The result is a perfectly waterproof jacket, comfortable, highly durable and most importantly fully breathable. For this reason it can be suitable for various temperature all around the year and for photography on the move.
A full set of inner and outer pockets is one of the main advantages of this apparel, especially the two main pockets on the front. These pockets are completely water proof and can be expanded, together with the protective top flap, by means of lateral zips in order to fit even the larger equipments. They feature removable padding and a special elasticized band to vertically support your lenses. Other pockets are intended for many other essentials, like flashlights, batteries, filters, cables, memory cards, binoculars and so on. On the inside it's also included an organizer style pocket, for business cards, pens and note book. A big waterproof pocket on the back gives room to several larger items, like lenses or even a bottle of water.
An other unique feature of this jacket is the "Light Shield" incorporated in the hood, with the dual function of protecting from the rain but above all to shield the light off the camera display improving the LCD visibility. The long waterproof zippers that run on both sides are also very convenient for additional ventilation (also enhanced by the ventilation ports on the back) and to access the inner pockets in windy and rainy conditions. These zippers, when fully opened from the bottom, also allow for extra movement and for having the two main pockets in front when kneeing down. Both shoulders and elbows are padded in order to give a good protection.
