• CLOSED-CELL NEOPRENE CONSTRUCTION—Unlike the open cell neoprene used in some low-end pouches and straps, the closed cell neoprene used in all Zing products is waterproof,* and much more durable. All Zing camera cases are made of 5mm (1/4-inch) thick neoprene, the “beefiest” in the business (some Zing pouches and
accessory items incorporate 3mm thick material).
• BONDED, DOUBLE BLIND-STITCHED SEAMS—A little detail that makes a big difference. Critical seams on Zing camera cases are painstakingly made in a three-step process. First the edges are mated carefully and bonded with waterproof adhesive. Next, the top and bottom surfaces are separately “blind-stitched” with heavy duty
thread; the needle never punctures all the way through the fabric, so the seam is much stronger and more water-resistant. This is the same process used to make expensive wetsuits for cold-water sports.
• PATENTED DESIGN—Zing’s original SLR Covers feature a simple, elegant “buttonhole” closure design: the one-piece case stretches around itself and over the camera lens, to form a fast, secure self-closure. No buckles to fuss with or break, no snaps or zippers to scratch the camera. This exclusive design was awarded Patent #5,101,974, and is on permanent display at the Design Museum of London.
• EYE-CATCHING COLORS—Most Zing products are offered in a variety of colors.
*A word about “WATERPROOF”: This word should be carefully understood and qualified when describing any protective product. Waterproof material does not make a waterproof product. Zing cases, while made of waterproof material, have necessary gaps and openings that may be exposed to the elements. While water cannot penetrate the fabric, it can get around it. As with any product of this kind, the user must exercise reasonable care in use, as we can make no guarantee of absolute weather protection.
