I got caught in a massive rainstorm yesterday during strike and have now decided it's time to stop talking about buying a rain cover and actually buy one (Glad I brought a large garbage bag because of the skies!). My question is: What is the difference between a Camera Essentials and a Jerry Hill Arm Protection Cover? Does anyone have a preference for one or are they so similar it does not matter, or ... are there other rain covers out there I do not know about?

Thanks,

Keith

I have a pair of ski leg gators that snap over the arm, inexpensive and pack small . . .

The Camera Essentials and Jerry Hill arm covers are identical. I think CE probably make them for Jerry but also sell them independantly.

I have some CE covers but here in the desert they're more often dust / sand covers... they haven't seen a drop of real rain yet! Rob is right though; a set of elastic gaiters will work the same.

Thanks for your replies gentlemen! Excuse the ignorance, I water ski, not snow ski, but what exactly are elastic gaiters?
