I feel that the neoprene is adequate protection against minor bumps, definitely against scratches. I've never been caught in the rain, but if it rained, I think it would protect the camera as you run for shelter.
Covering and uncovering the camera is pretty easy, if you develop your technique. If you don't mind, grab the camera by the flash housing (fingers under the flash overhang, thumb on the eyepiece -- flash closed, of course), put the lens deep into the case, then pull the butt end of the case up around the body. Then pull the hole part over the covered lens part. It's not amazingly easy, but you'll get the trick.
The case has a retention strap with a plastic ring/latch that fits the thin part of the Canon strap, allowing the case to dangle while you shoot. The retention strap is amply long, but not adjustable. You may find it bothersome while you're shooting, but it's not difficult to detach the ring from the camera strap. But better yet, attach a mini carabiner to the ring for even easier/quicker detachment. This way, you can also clip the case+carabiner to one of your belt loops.
But here's the kicker: the wife hates the appearance of the "thing" sticking through the "thing". (Subtract 1 star from a perfect rating.) It wouldn't have bothered me, had she not mentioned it, but ...too late. Well, she gave me the go-ahead to get a different one. I ordered the Zing 555-211 UXBK1 Large Eveready (Black) . I hope this fixes the "problem".
While the design is novel, and it works in theory, it just doesn't cut it for practical purposes.
I ended up liking it quite a bit - it worked perfectly for that original purpose, protecting the camera while its in the bag. But I realized it worked well too to protect hte camera while its around my neck - so I didn't feel like I had to worry so much about it if I slung it over my shoulder. I could keep it out but protected. The case also has a little strap which attaches the case to the camera's strap, so I never had to worry about it, I pulled the camera out and let hte case dangle and it was right there to put the camera back into. It's a little bit awkward at first, but once you get used to it, I could get the camera in and out very fast.
This fits my T2i with the kit lens perfectly. You absolutely could not fit a larger lens in it though they do sell the same model made for zoom lenses.
