Deluxgear Press Release

New Lens Guard With Thick Neoprene Padding Provides Substantial Impact Protection For SLR Lenses.

DeluxGear, LLC, announces the new Lens GuardTM, a padded cover that fits snugly over the end of the lens to protect lenses and filters and help avoid costly trips to the repair shop. Its cushiony, water-resistant inner core is made of 0.25” (6mm) thick closed-cell neoprene (diving suit material) and is encased in a tough 0.08” (2mm) santoprene outer cover. This powerful combination absorbs impact and prevents scrapes, scratches, dents and cracks to lenses.  It is like the bumper of a car, providing more protection than lens caps, filters, and hoods.  It is lightweight, too, with the largest Lens Guard just 2.4 ounces.

The Lens Guard can be used with or without filters or lens caps. It is available for both the lens front and rear in three sizes that will fit a wide range of lenses from 2.5” to 4” in diameter. A built in tether connects the Lens Guard to your lens, camera strap or camera body.

Retail price for the Lens Guard is $14.99. A pack of two is $24.99. For more information, visit DeluxGear.com/lens-guard.

Don't buy without trying it on your lens; the fit doesn't seem good enough.
I bought medium to fit Olympus 70-300mm (as recommended in their size guide). I have a UV filter fitted on the lens. The Lens Guard won't fit with the hoodon ; it's loose (so unfit for its purpose - it slips off) with the lens cap on. It just about fits with only the filter on the lens, but it doesn't grip the lens, and it seems about half an inch shorter than necessary for a good fit. I'm not convinced that my lens is better protected with this than with the lens hood.
