    I tried to cover my Nikon D500 and 200-500mm telephoto on a monopod with the product and it did not fit. The size is just a bit too small to slip over the ball head when the mount uses the side notch. Also, in spite of the description, it really isn’t practical to use the camera through the plastic. You cannot determine accurate focus or have secure button actuations though the plastic, especially when it is wet. I took a scissors and cut a slit on the inside leg of the tube in order to use the item. I was then able to use the product in drizzle and keep my camera and lens dry. However, to shoot, I need to roll up the plastic which hinders fast shooting.

    It worked wonderfully for me when it rained on the first port we visited which was Juneau. I was able to shot out on the open area of the boat for the whale watching.

    Definitely worth having one of these in your daypack if you are carrying a camera. The drawstring at the end is far from foolproof, and is not going to be a cakewalk to manage, but the fact is, it fits around you camera and allows you to take pictures without too much of an issue when it’s raining. Just make sure to also bring along a microfiber cloth to wipe down the actual lens, which will still have some splatters of water on it.
