    Just came across this product while browsing B&H:

    http://www.lenscoat.com/

    It is a set of neoprene covers for large telephoto lenses.

    At first glance, it looks like a good idea. Keeps the hands off the cold metal and provides some extra protection for the expensive glass.

    Anyone have one of these and care to comment?

    Thanks!

    looks like a neat idea!

    but very overpriced! Actually you could make these things yourself by using scissors on some camouflage leggings
    ;)

    Thanks for the feedback! I like the tape site as well. I can use some reflective tape for another purpose.

    Cheers,
