p.1 #1 · AquaTech Soft Collapsing lens hood for 400/2.8 AF-S II and 600VR


Thinking about getting the AquaTech Soft Collapsing traveling lens hood for my 400/2.8 AF-S II and 600/4vr.
Any Nikon shooters using that on the same lenses? Any advices and pictures with the hood on the lens? I've heard it's not as long as the Nikon 2-piece hood.

Any input and photos will be appreciate it.

Thanks, y'all.

how do you like it, sjms? 300 is not really an issue for me, just the 400 and 600 with 2-piece hood when packing, it's too wide (tall); just looking for an alternative way to travel with those lenses.

once initially adjusted it wraps on easily.
ungainly looking but functions as it should
in the years I have had it the hood has probably saved me at minimum 1 replacement.
takes a beating.
your choice of roll up or flat as needed for travel
actually protects things it wrapped around in transit.

I have it and used it quite a bit when I had both my 400mm 2.8 VR and 600mm f4 VR. I needed it since the hoods were just too fragile to pack and travel with on flights. Putting it on was a bit cumbersome for the first few times, but then got much easier than the two piece hoods. Most definitely worth the price.

Thanks for the feedback, I am looking forward to get one for my lenses.

Thanks again

Can you remove the foot and slide the hoods over the lens closer to the mount?
