Hi!. For arm, monitor and vest, I use covers made by Tiffen. For camera it cover, and for sled, kitchen film (too much or all you need). Just finished your shot it´s important use compressed air to clean the gimbal of humidity. Rain or dessert sand isn´t the best place for your gear.... Protect it all you can and just finish your work, clean all...

Always have Saran Wrap or "Kitchen Film" as Armando referred to it. Most cameras come with covers but once you start to add stuff to the camera, lights, mics, etc, the cover becomes useless.

Camera Essentials and Jerry Hill are essentially one in the same. I think they must make covers for Jerry, so check in with him. I know he has the Arm Cover. Camera Essentials has a variety of monitor/battery covers for the bottom of specific sleds. Those might also be available through Jerry. Always best to support another operator if you can..

I think Patty Harrison still makes all the rain gear. I have never needed anything other than her stuff. As far as a rain coat, the Marmot Precip jacket is super light, packs small and the pockets are right over the socket block of a pro vest (no jacket mod required, just a slit in the mesh pocket on the inside). Rain/cold jackets for my back mounted harness were a bit more complicated.
