Remember my post, Glad I have Glad? Most of you know that I always carry around a couple of Glad freezer bags on my camera bag, this might come in handy in cases like rain or dust. Feezer bags are the cheapest protection you can find for your gear and the good thing about it is, it is available almost anywhere.

Recently, I found a really nice product from OP/TECH USA, the Op/Tech 18″ SLR Rainsleeve for Digital & Film Cameras with Lenses up to 7″ Diameter, 18″ Long, and it is available from Amazon..

It is really handy and I would certainly recommend it to anyone, I mean for $5, you get two RainSleeve, you can’t beat that.

Here are some of the features of the OP/TECH USA RainSleeve, as written in the bag:

  • Protects your gear from dust and inclement weather
  • Designed for handheld use or tripod application
  • Unique eyepiece opening adapts to most viewfinders for viewing through the lens- not plastic
  • Camera & lens controls are easily visible and operable through the RainSleeve
  • Fits lenses measuring up to 7-inches (17,8 cm) in diameter & up to 18-inches (45,7 cm) in length
  • Drawstring lens opening offers easy access and a snug fit.

    The RAINSLEEVE™ from OP/TECH USA is the new must-have accessory for avid outdoor photographers, offering a shield from the elements that fits easily in the pocket or camera bag. It features a unique eyepiece opening that adapts to most camera viewfinders, allowing composition of shots through the camera’s lens, not through the plastic. All camera and lens controls are easily seen and operated through the RAINSLEEVE™. It can be used either handheld or on a tripod. If shooting with a long lens, the tripod mount can be attached directly through the pliable plastic. If shooting using an OP/TECH USA neck strap, simply attach the quick disconnects directly through the pliable plastic. (Note: verify that you have a positive lock on the quick disconnects.)The drawstring enclosure will fit any lens up to seven inches (17,8 cm) in diameter and up to 18 inches (45,7 cm) long.

    Conveniently packaged with two per bag, the RAINSLEEVE™ is the economical way to make sure camera gear is protected in any kind of unexpected weather.
