There is no other option for lens protection, insulation and camo disguise. Easy to put on, I did not even take my straps off. Easy to handle for better grip [I hand hold my 500f4]. An investment for your expensive lens well worth the money. I also bought the hoodie and extremely satisfied with both. Brilliant design by Lenscoat!
Well designed product with the exception that the filter is hard to change with the Lens Coat on. Solution is to get an Exacto knife and cut the cover back. In time this may (or may not) cause the cover to wear faster.
