For a fate closer to natural elements, water, dust, vibrations / shocks etc ... it's wise to provide protections that will contribute to the longevity of the equipment. The LensCoat protections are of excellent quality and designated for each lens and tripod.
These protections are designed in Realtree camouflage that does not constitute a decisive advantage in some cases because the equipment is often under full camouflage or in a hideout. On the other hand, this cosmetic becomes very useful when doing approach-photo where it is not possible to evolve under intergal camouflage like a bag hideout or other.
When doing approach-photo, it becomes possible to put the lens on any surface without damaging it and the Realtree patterns provide more discretion.
