    There is such thing as search function and reading existing threads.

    Secondly, do you want to keep your entire camera heated? Every other (mechanical) protector will cool down, no thermal protection (which is not needed anyway, as the above link and many other postings will reveal).

    Please tell us which country, and how many degrees below zero, before we can advise you.

    Well, you could surround it with heat packs..

    Jokes aside, cold country people don't protect their cameras, why should you? Unless you're going to the Antartica, most common holiday destinations will be ok for your camera.

    Even in Antarctica, most cameras will be ok. Though for some reason the Canons suffer more than most.
