Aquatech Soft Hood
As usual Sports Shooter is where you get all the latest news!

Aquatech is proud to announce a number of new products expected to hit the market within the next week or two. They will be available at your friendly Aquatech dealers.

The Aquatech Soft Hood will replace your 'hard' lens hoods for your large glass. Key points:
• you can still stand your camera and lens on the hood
• you can roll it around the skinny end of your lens for shipping, this saves tons of space in your case.
• you can lay it flat on top of your gear in your case (if your case is long enough)
• it comes in two sizes, large (400/2.8 - 600/4.0) and medium (300/2.8 - 500/4.0)
• they only cost $149.95 and $159.95

Since your leatherette or vinyl or whatever the manufacturers' long lens caps are made of will not longer fit your lenses without the 'hard' lens hood you can replace their lens cap with the Aquatech Soft Cap, which will fit right into the end of your lens.

Also new from Aquatech in their line of in case protection pouches, the "Soft Wraps". They come in many sizes with many more to come. The first release, coming in the next week or two will include:
-large SLR camera
-medium SLR camera
-large and small computer
These wraps will keep you gear protected in your case from dust and bangs. They are made of thick spongy, shock absorbent neoprene and have a very simple flip top closure system.

Aquatech still offers their fantastic photo rain jackets, photographers water proof pants with built in knee pads and the entire line of SportsShields we all know and love.

Finally, still another new line from Roberts, Fotorosa tripods, monopods and heads. How about a carbon fiber tripod that goes up to 65" and holds 30 pounds for $399.00 (add the Fotorosa KK-200S ball head that holds 22 pounds for only $89.00) or a carbon fiber monopod that goes up to 62" for $89.00. Coming soon!!!
