    I just got this one and it works great. The product quality is very good, no crappy plastic at all! Zippers are working smoothly! Tested on 5D MK-II with 24-105L and 100mm L Macro both working great.

    The product does what it’s supposed to do, and for a reasonable cost. Only one quibble, and since there aren’t any reasonable alternatives, it’s hard to fault the manufacturer: The “window” through which you look to see your camera controls is made of a vinyl, typically called Eisenglass by boaters (since the material is widely used in windows in boat canvas items). It’s prone to drying out, becoming cloudy and/or scratched, cracking (especially in cold weather), and developing more or less permanent creases when folded for too long. So my advice is to make sure the item is folded/stored in such a way that the window is as flat as possible, and keep it from drying out as much as possible. (Relatively inexpensive commercial products for this, including polishes and cleaners, are available from many boating supply stores.)

    UPDATE: As I starting using this, and as I believe one reviewer noted, the end of one of the cords used to secure the device around the arms or the camera lens untied, and the round metal retaining ball on the end fell off. It was a relatively simple fix, but somewhat annoying nonetheless.

    I’m a commercial photographer who has to shoot in rain/snow just a few times a year. In the past I’ve improvised protection for my camera/lens by using an old wp nylon rain shell draped over my tripod-mounted camera, and it has “worked” (no damage, got the shots). But managing the jacket while shooting has always been a pain, and not all that responsible a way to treat ~$5k of equipment, even though it’s weather sealed (Nikon D800 with f/2.8 24-70mm lens). So I finally decided to invest in a real rain cover. I was amazed to find such a wide range of prices, especially given the apparent similarity of design. This one looked about as good as others costing over $100, so I figured I’d give it a try. I am not disappointed. I’ve shot in two snowy/sleety sessions with it and have been very pleased. It’s easy to manage/use, keeps out the rain and snow perfectly while allowing easy access and ventilation for the camera, and seems to be well made. I don’t see any reason to spend more.

    I also got a 2-pack of the OP/Tech 18″ rainsleeves for $6. For $3 each, they are not a bad “emergency” solution. But it seems like they would be very easy to puncture and might steam up. I also find the inside diameter a bit snug on my camera, and that the lens opening end did not grip my lens hood well. I had to loop the drawstring over the side petals of the hood, and was worried about the extra plastic entering the field of view. I am much happier with the $20 cover here.
