| p.1 #4 · Cut lenscoat yourself to make it fit? |
Or you can do what I do. Make your own.
ps. No problem cutting neoprene. If you do make a mistake, contact cement works great as a repair.
I feel like that is what I should do - the email reply came today, and basically they said they probably used a different version of the lens as template, and that I can send mine to them for a custom job at extra cost. Maybe they use too much superglue while making these, because there's no way I will pay them extra. Some of the cuts aren't even straight, so even if they had used the proper lens template, I'd still be disappointed in how amateur the whole thing really looks.
I responded to their email asking again why they just can't make the proper piece with the measurements and photos I supplied (heck, that way they can add to their product line), plus why there's no piece for the built-in hood (they boast about a Velcro part you can use to cover up the part that is exposed once you extend the hood, but then you have to remove the piece from the hood itself... duh). We'll see what they say.
I know hot glue is a great neoprene patch material - used it a few times on bicycle rain booties that tore at the stitching - works like a charm and even with pretty aggressive pulling when putting these on, the patches have never failed, while the original stitching tore.
Maybe time to search ebay for proper digi-camo neoprene...
