I received my parka back in December. I’ve been using it on cold days and backpacking trips. I love the poagies on the side for my hands. I also love how easy it is to fit it on the camera. It easily fits over my 24-70mm and 80-400mm Nikkor lenses (with the hood attached). I have attached two pictures, in the campfire photo, all three of us (my husband, the camera, and I) were wearing parkas! The parka was great because it was windy and single digits that night. Second photo is the parka in action during sunset photography.

I used the Camera Parka to shoot the Northern Lights in Alaska and LOVED it.. Not only did it protect my camera, but helped keep my hands warm! My experience with it was good, I should have practiced with my camera controls withe the parka on first so I wouldn’t have had to sneak a peak so often! My only suggestion would be if the viewing area could be enlarged just a smudge.

The word needs to get out on this great design. Works well in subzero temps in Rocky Mountain National Park. Excellent customer service – was shipped immediately. The quality of the workmanship was way above anything made in China. I plan on purchasing another for a friend. Keep up the entrepreneurial spirit!

Lindsay Kaye won a camera parka during the Twelve Days of Christmas Giveaway on Aurora Borealis Notification group (www.facebook.com/AuroraNotify/) in December 2015.
She took this picture in December in Alaska, when trying her camera parka. In her own words: “I got to test drive it last night!” She commented: “I’m in Delta, which is one of the best places for aurora photography… if you can and your equipment can handle 20, 30, 40, 50 below! We don’t even cancel school for cold until -55.”
