Congratulations to our Washington Nationals for a fantastic inaugural season here in the Nations Capitol. Next year the playoffs will be part of our lives...Plus, the Washington Redskins are off to an undefeated start...How much better can it get??

Here's what's new and exciting-

THINK TANK PHOTO and PENN CAMERA are thrilled to announce, exclusively here on Sports Shooter the new "Remote Cover 10 and Remote Cover 20".

These NEW Remote Covers fit around your camera, lens and Pocket Wizard to keep your gear protected from the elements. There are two sizes, the Remote Cover 10, for lenses up to 70-200, and the Remote Cover 20, for lenses up to 600mm. Both have been tested, tried and re-tested for optimum use. Just think, no more trash bags!

Some of the features include:
• Easy access to the back of your camera for fast card changes
• Front cap with a drawstring to keep the front element covered prior to your shoot
• Business card holder on top, so that you know which camera is yours

These are very reasonably priced at $49.95 Remote Cover 10, and $59.95 for the Remote Cover 20.
