The lens hood works exactly as advertised. The shade reduces lens flare in most conditions, as well as offering a degree of side protection. Very lightweight, but seems sturdy. Well made, and they fit perfectly. They also do not block the airflow vents behind the gimbal, unlike the clear stock dome. The temperature of the Mavic Pro seems to get much hotter if these vents are blocked, so I only use the clear dome when packing up and traveling, or those rare times I've taken it up in a light rain (probably not a great idea, though I've had no problems).
