What is the difference between LegCoat Covers and LegCoat Wraps?
Both products protect your tripod legs and your shoulders when carrying your gear. You also both act as a thermal barrier keeping your hands comfortable in hot or cold conditions.
The main differences are bulk and how they go on. The LegCoat Covers have a closed cell foam core about 1/2" thick with a slit down the side and a 2mm neoprene shell that wraps around the foam and has a Velcro closure. The foam also comes with an optional adhesive strip to help prevent movement.
The LegCoat Wrap is less bulky and is made from approximately 5mm of soft spongy neoprene that wraps around the tripod leg and is affixed with a Velcro closure. The Wraps backing is designed to tightly grip to your tripod legs so they will not slide.
Due to the construction and shape the Wraps are less expensive to ship compared to the LegCoat Covers especially internationally.

What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
It depends on whether you are talking about an African or European swallow.
The airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow is roughly 11 meters per second, or 24 miles per hour*, beating its wings 7-9 times per second (rather than 43). But please note that a 5 ounce bird cannot carry a one pound coconut.
*Based upon published species-wide averages of wing length and body mass, initial Strouhal estimates based on those averages and cross-species comparisons, the Lund wind tunnel study of birds flying at a range of speeds, and revised Strouhal numbers based on that study gives an estimate that the average cruising airspeed velocity of an unladen European Swallow is roughly 11 meters per second, or 24 miles per hour.
