Shooting with Outex in Afghanistan
In military situations the environment is often unpredictable. As a Soldier, I want reliable results from the equipment I know and trust. In Afghanistan, conditions were harsh on all of my camera equipment, but ruggedness is just as important as size and weight. I needed to travel light and be quick on my feet. I used OUTEX to protect my Nikon D-40, keeping out sand and dust without incident.
Sand storms in Afghanistan are like nothing I had ever experienced. At times wind was blowing at 60 Knots an hour. Dust and Dirt filled the air and everything around us. At the end of missions I would return to base and remove my Outex cover and find my lenses and camera body in great shape.
The cameras and covers were stored in rucksacks and readily available when needed. All of my Outex equipment has shown that it’s built to last, and while the covers wear out over time, they are easily replaceable. It only took one tour withOUT using OUTEX for the sand to completely ruin my lens and camera’s optics. I look forward to using OUTEX again once I replace my camera equipment.
