It didn't take long before I was able to put the LensCoat RainCoat to use. In fact, the delivery driver was walking up as I was heading out to cover a soccer game. The RainCoat performed as I would expect. I also wear rain gear so the hood was able to keep water off the back of the camera as well. I have other rain gear for my cameras and this works better than most...... The cost was also a plus. I would definitely recommend this to others and plan on buying in the future.
