4.0 out of 5 stars Snug as a bug in a rug! 17 Aug 2011
By TimBall
If you were put off by trying the old Camera Armor version (discontinued), Delkin Snug-it is rather different!

First of all, it really does fit accurately, like a glove, unlike Armor's loose "duffle coat" fit, which made lens changing awkward.
Secondly it slips on easily,thanks to the siliconised finish, not like the wrestling match with C. Ar.
Thirdly it has a smooth almost "slippery" finish (which is a mixed blessing), but doesn't pick up the dust like C.Armor did.
I think the old Armor gave more protection however. It felt quite a lot thicker.
Those last two are the negative points on the Snug-It Pro for the Canon 5D MkII, less protection from hard knocks and slippery to hold. A non-slip finish to the inner edge of the finger grip would be so much better. The old C.Armor felt much safer in the hand with it's "rubbery" finish.
However, just like the old C. Armor, for cameras with built in flash in the head, there is no protection! This area is the most exposed of all to knocks, surely some kind of "Flap-cap" could have been designed to cover this?

I certainly think this is better than leaving my camera totally unprotected, but I would have preferred it just a bit thicker and a lot less slippery,

Some people fear that any sort of rubber cover will, a) trap dirt and scratch the finish, and b) trap moisture. I haven't found either to be true.
I used Camera Armor on my old 5D Classic and still use it on the 40D. When I removed it from the 5D after 3+ years use, it had done it's job well, the camera still looked like new.

Delkin provide two types of LCD cover with this, neither, in my opinion much use. One a flexible film, the other a hard plastic with a nasty "moire" effect. Both are high gloss with no anti reflective coating.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect to change lenses in a hurry 10 Oct 2012
By ChrisE
Verified Purchase
I have just returned this product after 10 minutes of trying it on my camera (EOS5D). The problem is that the case is made to fit snugly round the base of the lens barrel. This means that whenever you want to change lenses, you are faced with several minutes of fumbling and fiddling trying to stretch bits of case around the lens and keeping it all clear of the mount itself so you can actually get the lens onto the camera.
It took me a good couple of minutes messing about to fit a 24-105mm lens. I hate to think how long it would take to fit a larger, heavier lens, in the cold and rain, wearing gloves etc.
Sorry, but not really fit for purpose. Get it if you only have one lens.

1.0 out of 5 stars So much worse than the Camera Armor 23 April 2012
By Patrick R. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
So, I got a backup 5D Mark II a couple months ago, and wanted to get Camera Armor for this second body as well. Sadly, it's no longer made, and I couldn't find anyone selling it anywhere. So, I got the Delkin skin, and boy, it just doesn't compare! Whoever designed it probably did not ever actually put it on a camera and use it for more than 5 seconds, otherwise, they would have seen it's several design flaws. So, here are the things I don't like about it:
-I have the vertical grip on the body as well, and the Delkin Skin has a little lip that goes around the bottom edge of the body, preventing a tight fit for the grip, and since the grip provides power to the body, the camera doesn't get power unless you move it out of the way (or cut it off, as I did). This shouldn't be a big deal, but:
-To change CF cards with the skin over the grip means the skin is ill fitting, and it prevents easy access to the CF card, and has caused difficulty with closing that CF card door without holding the skin out of the way with one hand and closing the door with the other (not always easy to do when I'm trying to work fast at a wedding or event).
-The Camera Armor protects the LCD with a clear hard plastic cover that actually sits around the viewfinder under the rubber to keep it securely in place. Also, that hard plastic does not sit directly on the LCD screen. I love that design. Delkin has gone another route and had that hard plastic not only sit on the LCD screen (fingers crossed I never get any sand or abrasive bits under there!), but it slips into a little groove around the screen in the rubber. After using my camera just a few times, I grabbed it out of my camera bag and the rubber skin moved a little and the screen fell out of that groove. This happens much more frequently than I'd like, and I don't think I handle my camera particularly roughly. When that hard plastic falls out on a shoot, I just don't have the time to put it back in right away, so the screen is no longer protected.

The big bonus of this skin is the feel of it, but beyond that, I would NOT recommend this product to anyone. In fact, I might encourage folks to avoid it at all costs. Sadly, I can not find a good alternative. I wish I could.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's just okay, but gets in the way. 24 Sep 2013
By Jon K - Published on Amazon.com

I thought his would be an answer to drunks knocking my camera at events. The concept is great, but the practicality isn't there. Delkin is great and I won't buy anyone else's CF cards. They are incredible and made in America. But more thought needs to go into this case. As a previous reviewer stated it is difficult to swap lenses with this on. Total deal breaker for me. I've got enough to worry about on shoots without having to fiddle with swapping out a lens.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good while it lasted... but not good with frequent lens changes 22 April 2012
By Adena Demonte - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This product was great at protecting my Canon 5D Mark II while it lasted. I had a lot of trouble changing lenses with it on the camera, so had to frequently remove it to change the lens. If you only have one lens this would be great, but it's not built to be pulled on and off of the camera frequently, and thus it broke only two weeks into use. I wish it was designed so that it would not block the area where one needs to attach lenses when they are changed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Camera Lens Lip too Snug to the Lens Opening 8 Feb 2012
By Carlito Tingzon - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
***Cons
I almost return this item because of the problem with mounting the lens.
The primary design flow is the camera rubber lens lips. They are too tight and they become hindrance and cumbersome for changing or mounting lens to the camera. You can follow the surgical suggestion by the earlier reviewer or make the rubber lips envelope the lens first before you mount the lens. Another problem I see is the very thin rubber at the base near the battery compartment. It does not look that it will last long.
Also, there is no protection for the base - bottom of the camera is exposed.

***Pros
The skin or rubber is thinner compared to another brand, Camera Armor. It cover more surface of the camera, except the bottom, and a very good snug fit. More surface coverage equals more protection from scratches, moisture, etc. Because of the snug fit and thinner skin, the camera looks like what it should be - a camera, unlike the other brand - makes the camera look bulky and heavy.
2.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy and bulky. 13 July 2014
By David K - Published on Amazon.com

Too bulky and I cannot get used to it after trying a few days and it's better to feel the buttons without any layer in between The lens cannot mount without stretching the rubber and wrinkled at the mount.
