The angular right side is the space for the camera's hand grip. It looks really weird on the picture but it allows for you to slip you hand in. It bulges a little bit because that is also where the exterior pocket for the rain cover is. I promise to post some pictures of it in action soon.

While the body armour itself does not cover the handle, viewfinder or mic, the rain cover, when deployed does fit over all items including a shotgun if you have one.

I just bought the Kata CRC-14 for just over 70 incl. VAT (once again more than double the US price - I assume it's retailers and not videographers who are keeping our economy ticking along).

Anyway, after quite a bit of shopping around online, the best UK price I could find was with ProAv.co.uk. They're not always the cheapest, but on a few occasions they have been, and they're efficient and a pleasure to deal with.

If you've just bought your camera, I'd have a little think about what you're going to be doing before spending money on a rain cover. I haven't needed one for a year now but have stumped up the cash as I'm shooting the Olympic torch as it passes through London and we're expecting light rain and snow. And I'm doing this job on a voluntary basis too :-(.
