Instead, this 3-3.5" size is actually a perfect fit for the 2.8" hood of the smaller lens I had planned to buy the next size down for. With that lens, this hood hat slides on perfectly easily while still holding tight, even with the lens upside down. It's easy to use with one hand, seems perfectly secure, covers the hood and front element perfectly, etc. Having used Op/Tech's neoprene straps before, I know how durable and resistant to weather they are, so I've no doubt this hood hat will hold up just fine now that it's found a home on a smaller lens.
I'm impressed enough with the hood hat on the smaller lens that I'll be buying the next size up for the Sigma lens I originally intended this one for. It's just a shame the sizes don't really match up. The 3-3.5" size fits a 2.8" hood but not a 3.25" hood, so I'm expecting the 3.5-4" size to fit the 3.25" hood. (I'll update this review to say if it does or not.) I think Op/Tech are overestimating how far this material can easily stretch without requiring considerable effort.
In short, good product, but bad labelling/sizing. If they shifted all the labels along by one, I'd have no complaints at all.
UPDATE: The 4" Medium size has now arrived and fits the 3.25" Sigma hood perfectly. Much easier to get on and off than the supposed proper 3.5" Small size, but still a tight enough fit that it doesn't move unintentionally. The 3.5" Small has continued to be used on a 2.8" hood with no problems.
So, again, functionally very nice, as all Op/Tech's neoprene products are, but the sizing isn't really accurate. You need to buy whatever is one step above the size of your lens' hood(s). To reiterate, the 3-3.5" Small fits a hood just under three inches, while the 3.5-4" Medium fits a hood just over three inches. The Small does fit over the larger hood but only by really stretching it out and forcing it, which requires both hands; I think Op/Tech are being too generous and overestimating how much these hoods can really stretch in practical, daily use terms. Buy one size up and you're set!
