    I like the kata one better. I would rather have it open on the bottom with the windows then open in the back. Would make me a little more nervous.

    (sorry, couldn't resist...) :hail:


    If stationary in the sticks, I would use a shooting blind....in an urban setting, I would either stay in my truck, or use one of the covers, both look promising....however the one from storm jacket says that it is for for short term use, so I would suspect it is more water resistant than waterproof.

    Here is something else to consider (serious this time...):

    Depends if you are after something to buy or make...

    You can home make some quite decent foul weather covers, with some "unusual" items.

    Saw this on another forum: Guy wanted wildlife blind. Went to Walmart and bought a small free-standing tent (about $20) with door on one side and windows on other three. Cut out windows for shooting. Later cut out floor so hecould move the blind without leaving it.

    i usually grab some ziploc bags and a roll of duct tape and make my own camera condom, keep the cost minimal and effectiveness 100% ;)
