For those of us that shoot in the rain and don't like the plastic bag routine, a new answer. Camera canopy.com. Good idea.

Thanks for that info. I have a rain sleeve but it is hard for me to see the controls and through the viewfinder.

I wouldn't trust it shooting a football game on a windy rainy day

I agree with the author who said:
"Personally, I think I’ll just stick to using weather sealed gear."

My experience is that rain often comes with wind and, though I have a decent umbrella, rain will find a way in unless you have whatever sealed from all directions. I carry a large plastic bag just in case I get caught in a downpour but not for shooting with. It's not worth the risk to expensive equipment.

From the pictures it looks as something very fragile to carry on a backpack for example. Looks like acrylic that would crack quite easily
