How Do You Keep Your Gear Dry?

 Sligachan Falls, Isle of Skye, Sligachan, Scotland-sharpened.jpgI am currently in the middle of Ron Modra and my Scottish Highlands workshop. Sadly we had a participant get Covid and I have been sidelined with a stomach flu bug. Ah - the joys of traveling. What we have been lucky with has been the weather... though here in Scotland, one minute it is dry and the next it is pouring rain. I try to maintain a simple approach to keeping my gear dry. I use a towel, shammy and microfiber clothes. I have tried every cover known to man and all are a pain. I also carry a compact Repel Umbrella - not to keep me dry but my gear, What are your methods? Could be a great discussion here... Here is an image of Sligachan Cascades  on the Isle of Skye prior to a cloudburst.

Think Tank has some options for short glass, but honestly in the past I've always just left them uncovered.

I'm a recent Sony convert so I'm hoping my new gear holds up as well to the elements as my old Canon gear did.

I like the Think Tank Hydrophobia cover for long glass.

That is a great one - I used something similar back in my NFL days Kevin. What about for shorter glass like a 24-70mm GM or a 12-24mm? Any recommendations?

In a pinch, trashbags work great!! Otherwise, I use a variety of rain gear from Kata - surprisingly cheap and super effective.
