Rain cover for EX3 with Letus & Mattebox

Hi and thanks, first post! I've learnt a lot over the last couple of years of hanging around and peering into the DVi crucible.

Has any one experience with the Kata RC-HD-3? or Kata Products?

I want water and especially sand protection. Is this thing too big to use when the matte box and letus are not in use?

from the picture, it looks like its gonna be WAY to big for the ex3. I use porta braces setup, I only had to make one minor adjustment so I could use an on camera light with the cover.

other than that, its perfect. I have the anton bauer bricks on mine, and also have a matte box, everything is protected (the matte box isnt, but there is nothing wrong with it getting wet).

I use a KATA RC-10, with my mattbox, bars and Wideangle fitted.
It does a great job in rough weather and sand.
