    Hitech Pro Stopper comes in 2 variants: w/ 3mm gasket and w/ 1.5mm gasket. The former is meant for Hitech filter holder as Hitech holder's first filter slot sits further away from its base. Those who own a Lee foundation kit needs to get the 1.5mm gasket version... the 3mm version simply too thick and it will not fit into Lee holder.

    I tot the former is meant for 85mm filter holder such as cokin P holder? It's also cheaper than the 1.5mm versioning remembered.

    As said above, there are 2 versions.

    And I use the filter pouch from Lowepro S&F series. which is much better designed than the ones from Lee.

    there is only 1 type of Hitech Pro Stopper for Cokin-P holders, and that is tailored only for Cokin holders. The price is much cheaper than 100x100 variants because of its smaller size, nothing to do with the thickness of gasket.

    i was actually asking alancwr to provide us pic of his shots taken with the filter. But for your case, i suppose you can do an exchange since it cannot be used/haven't use yet.

    The 3mm version is 85mm X 85mm square filter right? Isn't it too small for Lee Filter holder? The 1.5mm version is 100mm X 100mm.

    the pouch? $49. I think it is really good, since it:

    1) comes with filter sleeve that fit the 100x150mm filters perfectly
    2) many slots
    3) still has room for the holder once the sleeve is in the pouch
    4) has velcro at the bottom of the sleeve, so when in the pouch, it is very secure.
    5) has velcro belt loop for S&F belts, but also fit on Think Tank belts that I use.
    6) has a special button closure design for one handed use.

    Field tested it in Vietnam, climbed up a very tall rock on the coast... no problems handling my filters and stuff on the 1.5 storey high rock.

    The filter is 100mm x 100mm... the 3mm refers to the thickness of the foam gasket that is on glued on the filter. When you fit yours into the lee holder, was it very tight?

    the 3mm version is also 100mm x 100mm... 3mm only refers to the gasket thickness... anyway, 3mm version is meant for Hitech 100mm holder.
