Two types of Camera Parka are available:

  • Camera Parka Classic
  • Camera Parka Pro

Both covers are made of high quality outdoor fabrics from Polartec®. The outer shell is water repellent, durable and blocks wind at 99%. It provides complete protection from wind, moisture and frost. The inner layer is a double fleece providing insulation from cold to the camera and warmth to the hands of the photographer when changing settings.
The Camera Parka Pro has an extra layer of thermal fabric around the camera body. It helps keep the cold out and the heat in, when using chemical heat warmers for instance.

Both covers have a version for short lenses or fish eye lenses. Extra pull strings inside the covers are used to secure the front sleeve around short lenses.
