Hey! Does anyone have a raincoat for their set up?

    I have a Kata E-702 GDC Elements Cover that I purchased about ten years ago while shooting a lot of cross country and track and field events that go on rain or shine. It's still in great shape though I seldom use it and prefer carrying a tough garbage bag while doing my nature photography. There's not much to shoot when it really starts raining so I'm just protecting the gear with the garbage bag. I would recommend the Kata as it's not that expensive, very serviceable and functional.

    I thow a jacket or raincoat on the gear if I think it's going to stop raining. If not, I often pack up. If I still want to shoot in rain and snow, I just do it. Much of my gear is fully weathersealed. I sat for several hours in snow and sleet in the Grand Tetons where rain and snow was washing off the camera and lens. No issues. Toweled everything off later.
