OP/TECH USA's neoprene LENS SLEEVE is the latest innovation in lens protection. LENS SLEEVE slides quickly and easily onto a lens and has the option of being combined with any size Hood Hat (sold separately) to create a totally customized system.
It comes with a Velcro®-backed tab with a plastic connector that can be secured to the leather tab of a Hood Hat (see photo above). This simple system enables the LENS SLEEVE and the HoodHat to be connected together for added protection.
LENS SLEEVE is available in four different lengths (3", 4", 5", 6") to accommodate a wide variety of lenses. For the photographer who uses sunshades and prefers to keep them attached to the lens, the LENS SLEEVE and the Hood Hat make a dynamic combination! Proudly made in the U.S.A., LENS SLEEVE is sure to please!

I am not a fan of the lens cases that come with new lenses. Why? Simply because when the lens is inside the pouch, you can not tell which lens it is (if you have many lenses in your bag as I do). Also, the lens slides around inside the oversized pouch. Enter the Op/Tech Lens Sleeve, and this has all changed. I love this product, the way I use it is insert my lens into it, with the rear, lens cap facing up. On the black lens cap I use a white, oil-based sharpie and write which lens, ie 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, etc. Now I know which lens is in the sleeve, and pull from my bag accordingly. Plus, with the Op/Tech Lens Sleeve being made from neoprene, it protects the lens much more than the standard case that comes from your lens manufacture allowing the lens to slide around inside it. The reason I gave 4 stars is because I don't care for the velcro on the outside of the sleeve. I know it is meant to attach an optional hood hat, but I do not use those. So, only downside is when putting this sleeve into your bag sometimes the velcro clings to the inside of the bag - would be best if they made 2 versions of this sleeve, 1 with & 1 w/o the velcro section. Other than that, I LOVE this product!!!
