THINK TANK EMERGENCY RAIN COVER
Caught in rain or snow with your camera ? Hmm maybe not an ideal scenario but Think Tank have a great product to fight the elements when you are caught short. Stop rain wrecking your camera and photoshoot all in one go with the emergency rain cover.
With Think Tank Photo’s new Emergency Rain Covers, photographers need no longer be caught off guard by bad weather. The Emergency Rain Covers are a simple, compact solution for protecting photo gear from sudden downpours or dusty conditions. These seam-sealed rain covers can be quickly and easily deployed when outdoor conditions change, and are small enough to be stuff inside a pocket or bag without adding weight.
The covers are designed to fit both DSLR and Mirrorless cameras and are available in two sizes to accommodate a range of full-frame lenses. The Emergency Rain Cover – Small size protects a 16–35mm f/2.8, a 14–24mm f/2.8, a 24–105mm f/4, or a 24–70mm f/2.8 lens. Medium protects a 24–70mm f/2.8 or a 70–200mm f/2.8 lens.
Also these are great value, so easy to buy and easy to replace prices start at less than $35. Being so well priced means you can buy several and place one in each bag so you never have to worry about finding them for each and every shoot.

What’s cool about these covers is that the panel to see the controls is much clearer than some of the cheaper alternatives on the market I have seen, which is a must for when the conditions to see your rear display are less than favorable.
Having used some “cheaper alternatives” before I got this from Think Tank, they give me issues seeing important information, it’s one of the things I look for when investing in a rain cover of any type after that experience.
“It takes up so little room in your bag, yet could save your gear when a sudden downpour or dust storm hits. Every photographer who shoots outdoors should keep one tucked one away in their camera bag.”
“When compressed, the Emergency Rain Cover fits into a small pouch, so it’s easy to bring along even if rain is a distant concern,” said Think Tank’s President and Lead Designer Doug Murdoch. “It takes up so little room in your bag, yet could save your gear when asudden downpour or dust storm hits. Every photographer who shoots outdoors should keep one tucked one away in their camera bag.”
don't get caught short
If you do shoot outside a lot then these emergency covers are a good solution as they are so small and easy to pack but its worth considering upgrading to the more rugged version which Think Tank make if you are looking to stay outside for longer periods.
