Camera glove/raincover?

Hey guys.
I want to get a camera cover, but would prefer to get a snug fitting glove type cover than a bulky, full rain cover. I mostly need protection against dust/mist, and the odd knock rather than full rain. I'm looking at Kata's camera glove for the HD100, anyone else own one and can give feedback?

Otherwise, which rain covers do you use?

Thanks!

No one makes a form fitting glove/suit for the HD 100, 200, or 250. There seem to be only universal rain covers and soft and hard travel bags/cases.

Hmmm, I just tried the link and it worked. And yes, it is for the HDxxx series camcorders.

Yes I know I have one, but it is still universal (mini dv) when I purchased it, but now Porta Brace is saying that it is for the HDxxx. The more accessories for this camera the better. The OP was asking for a camera glove, and I thought it wasn't being fabricated yet, I was wrong, and actually just ordered one from Amazon, I should receive by the end of April.

Yea porta barce does make one. It fits snug as a rug. Opt for the one that fits over there ex harddrive.

body glove and rain cover

Camrade now make a series of specially designed covers for the JVC series, including, rain, splash, sand and body glives. And unlike the portabrace, they allow for the addition of full size batteries, disk recorders etc. Not cheap, but ultra high quality

Looking out for one...have been hit with rain during these past few days :(
Cheers Simon - hopefully they're available in the UK.
