Camouflage Lens skin for DFA 150-450

I just had a look at B&H and the only Pentax lens skin they have is for the DA560. Has anyone ever seen a camouflage lens skin for the DFA 150-450? I can wear camouflage myself to hopefully scare the birds and animals less, but it may be pointless if I'm lugging around a huge black lens.

I got a nice skin for my 150-450 from Lens Coat Pentax Covers, LensCoat. Took it with my to Tanzania in 2017. I picked the camo cover. They fit quite well. I've covered several other lenses with their products. As can be seen, I went for the total camo look.

They even have an all-black camouflage cover for the 150-450!?

On second thought, maybe it's not as silly as it sounds. Perfect for shooting in total darkness.

I just got a set from Outdoor Photography Gear, U.K. based with international shipping. Fits my DFA 150-450 really nicely! About half the cost of the lenscoat brand.

Thanks for the links folks! I'm glad to find that the DFA 150-450 hasn't been left out (except on B&H, who normally carry an excellent range for Pentax). I did try Google but as is often the case, you need to ask the right question to get the right answer. Happily there are helpful folks on PF. The real power of the internet is the people who use it, not the machines connected to it.

I assume that they make the black neoprene covers to add weather resistance to non-weather-resistant lenses, or to make white/beige lenses black?

I didn't opt for that option.

I took a risk on the camo coating. Yet, I still, occasionally have this problem with it.

You're right
And there are also existing thread here (findable with "150-450").

Definitely worth quoting and nuggets like this are why I browse the unread post listing for this forum.
