Our Best Seller! The HYBRID BLACKJACKET™ Focusing Cloth


The HYBRID BLACKJACKET™ is identical to the ORIGINAL in all respects with one important exception. The HYBRID incorporates the classic two-layer sandwich of white (outside) and black (inside) waterproof breathable fabric for the top panel. The remaining components are constructed of the same "Aluminized" nylon fabric used for the standard model. This new design was created in response to feedback from users in high humidity areas, where the lightweight, Aluminized (non-breathable) fabric was less desirable.

The tradeoff for additional comfort is that the HYBRID weighs more than the ORIGINAL model, though both designs are lightweight. The ORIGINAL 4x5 BLACKJACKET™ weighs just 8 ounces while the HYBRID 4x5 weighs 17 ounces. We didn't want to add too much to the weight, so the heavier, breathable fabric was only used for the top panel, where it will do the most good.

Since the price of the HYBRID is the same as the ORIGINAL BLACKJACKET™ the decision is yours to make. Most photographers choose the more comfortable HYBRID. But for those hard-core backpackers trying to shave every ounce off their load, we still offer the ORIGINAL model.

The HYBRID BLACKJACKET™ features a top panel of waterproof/breathable white(outside)/black(inside) fabric sandwich for more comfort.
