Think Tank Photo Introduce New Hydrophobia Camera Rain Covers

Think Tank Photo has introduced new Hydrophobia rain covers and a new pair of compact rain covers it calls the Emergency Rain Cover.

Think Tank said the Hydrophobia V3.0 Rain Covers come in five different configurations to fit various DSLR cameras and Sony full-frame mirrorless camera setups.

Hydrophobia V3.0 Rain Covers are made of a three-layer material and feature a DWR coating for extra protection against moisture. The stitches across the entire cover are seam-sealed and a rainproof front element cover is included so your lens doesn't get splashed when sitting idle.

Think Tank Photo has also released a new thinned-out version of its rain covers. Called Emergency Rain Covers, they're a more compact, lightweight solution for keeping gear safe from the elements in emergency situations.

Emergency Rain Covers come in two sizes: small and medium — and weigh just 3.5 and four ounces, respectively. Compared to the approximately 10.5ounces of the full-size Hydrophobia Rain Covers, they offer considerable weight savings.

All of the rain covers are currently available. The Hydrophobia Rain Covers start at $115 for the 24-70 size and go up to $150 for the massive 300-600 version. The small and medium emergency rain covers retail for $35 and $40, respectively.
