Hey Nikonians:

I asked this question a few months ago and got a limited response so I thought that I would give it a try again! I am attempting to find out from some experienced photogs out there that have had experiences with the advertised long rain lens covers. I've seen the Versa Rain cover, I 've seen the LL Rue advertised rain cover, The Laird rain cover (Krik web site?), nothing on Really Right Stuff's site, Unknown brand on the Kinesisgear site.

My question is: which is practical, functional and dependable?

To date I've used the ole' large size plastic garbage bag and thats way too flimsy! I'm trying to cover a F5 with either a TC 1.4x or 2.0x teleconverter as well as the Nikon 400mm 2.8 ED-IF I lens with lens hood.

I have seen some cover that extend over to cover the camera & lens. It has a flip over camera cover and one cover even has a flip over material to keep the photographers head covered. I am not crazy about attaching velcro on the lens hood to keep the cover in place.

Has anyone out there used any of these covers I have mentioned? Are there any that I have not mentioned? Is there a material that I haven't experienced yet? I don't mind shelling out the $65.00 to $85.00 for a lens and camera cover just as long as its worth it and functional. What do ya say any suggestions?
