Our take on the Think Tank Photo Hydrophobia 300-600 by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
The Think Tank Photo Hydrophobia 300-600 is a brilliantly designed rain cover that protects your camera and an attached lens between 300-600mm in focal length from the elements. The rain cover allows full use of the camera, including access to memory card and battery compartment, while keeping damaging moisture out.
Note: a special eyepiece (not included) is required for proper use of the rain cover.

Overview: The Think Tank Photo Hydrophobia 300-600 V2.0 is an advanced rain cover for most DSLRs with a super telephoto lens attached. It works with cameras with lenses such as a 300mm F2.8 up to 600mm F4. It allows you to continue shooting in almost any weather. The Hydrophobia 300-600 V2.0 covers and protects your camera and lens from rain, snow, or blowing sand.
Construction: The Hydrophobia 300-600 V2.0 is made of nylon tricot with weather-resistant zippers and antique nickel-plated hardware. The large polyurethane window give you a clear view of the camera's LCD screen and the camera's controls. The Hydrophobia securely attaches around the lens using a hook-and-loop strap. The neoprene eyepiece port keeps a weather-resistant seal around the eyepiece, and holds the polyurethane window close to the camera so your view isn't obstructed. For extra-long lenses, such as a 600mm F4 or 800 F5.6, a lens extension sleeve is included. A tethered lens hood cover is included for further protection when you're not shooting.
Note: For best results, an optional Hydrophobia eyepiece (sold separately) should be used. Compatible eyepieces are available for all Nikon and Canon DSLRs and some Sony and Olympus DSLR bodies.
No Rhetoric Warranty: All Think Tank Photo products are covered by a No Rhetoric Warranty. The products are warranted against any defects in material or workmanship for as long as the original owner uses the product. Normal wear and tear is not covered by the warranty.
