The new Storm Coat Extreme (STC-2EX) was designed for heavy weather conditions when you need all the help you can get. The Storm Coat Extreme is fast and easy to put on with an extended zipper on the bottom and a zippered viewfinder sleeve. The neoprene gasket around the lens shade both grips the lens shade to keep the case in proper position, and seals out harsh weather, sea-spray and dust. An extended hand-sleeve for camera operation is long enough to transition over your jacket to help keep you dry. A 17 inch storm collar allows top access to the camera offering the possibility for a carrying strap and a light. The opening seals tight with hook and loop and folds over for extreme weather. Other features include a large vinyl window on the viewfinder side, a separate zipped opening for left handed manual focus and controls, an expandable back that gives you an extra 2 inches in length if you need it.
