Protecting Your Camera Without Carrying a Huge Bag | Camera Coats Padded DSLR Camera Cover

I love taking photos with my Nikon D5100, but sometimes I hate dragging my huge camera bag with me. Knowing that I will only need the one lens and it’s already on the camera makes dragging an entire bag along a painstaking task. Sometimes I just wish I could plop my DSLR in my diaper bag and go. Now I can! Camera Coats sent us an Alpine Nylon {Ultra Padded & WaterResistant} Vest to try on our trip to LA in February.

Whether your hiking up the snow filled Wasatch Mountains or heading to grab a warm drink down the street your camera will be padded, protected, and ready to join you!

Outside: Ultra Padded Nylon {Water Resistant}
Inside: 100% Black Cotton or Wild Flowers (Gray & Black) Padded.

Carefully made by hand in the USA.

The sturdy buckle {pictured} attaches to you camera strap so you don’t lose your Camera Coat while shooting!

The 3 awesome pockets in the back are perfect for your smartphone or extra SD card.

Strong velcro keeps your camera nice and cozy inside its Camera Coat!

The Alpine fit my Nikon with a 50mm lens attached with plenty of room to spare. It has a nice, soft, fatty layer of padding to keep the camera safe while out and about. There is also a sturdy buckle that attaches to your camera strap so when you remove your camera coat you won’t lose it.

On the back of the camera coat there are 3 pockets that are perfect for a SD card, smartphone, or lens cap.

Camera coats offers a variety of sizes to cover just about any body.
Standard: Our “standard” Camera Coats will typically fit a DSLR up to approx. 5 X 4 X 3 with a lens up to approx. 4″ long.
The Large Standard: Fits a camera body size up to approx. 5.5 x 4.5 x 3 with a lens up to approx. 5″ long.
The Small PRO: The latest edition to our family. It is the same size as the PRO up top (6 X 6 X 4), but not quite so long (about 1.5″ shorter)…great for a lens up to approx. 5″ long.
PRO: The PRO size will fit up approx. 6 X 6 X 4 and up to a 6.5″ telephoto lens. {Yeah, that’s big!}
So I decided to take my Nikon to California with me without a camera bag… just using my new Camera Coat. I felt confident placing my camera in my carry on bag with my laptop and wallet (and a few other essentials) knowing that it was surrounded with padding. I am thankful to Camera Coat for this feeling of freedom as I was able to catch a few great photos with my Nikon that I otherwise wouldn’t have gotten with just my phone camera.
One more reason I love Camera Coat…  Each Camera Coat is made by hand here in the USA and packaged and shipped by a great team of our local friends with disabilities on the next business day after your purchase!
