We just returned from vacation in Northern Ireland and Scotland and of course encountered a fair share of drizzly days, but we were VERY PLEASED with the rain cover we purchased, in fact we just purchased another one for a smaller backpack as well - highly recommend!

excellent abrasion resistance
September 29, 2012

I have an ultralight backpack that I also use for mountaineering in the Sierra Nevada. Sierra granite is sharp and can make short work of a UL pack. I bought this rain cover more to protect the pack when I anticipate squeezing through chimneys or walking amongst big boulders. In that regard its job. I cannot see any evidence that it even touched a rock though I know it was dragged through some. It will not hold up like 500D Cordura, of course, but compared to my UL Kifaru 3700 and other vapor-thin Silnylon packs it stands up very well. So I cannot review how well it'll handle rain. When that time comes I'll add another review.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value

Packs Small, well made

Small fits my Kelty Redwing 3100 with room to spare. Nicely made and packs into it's attached bag. Very pleased with this raincover!

Not true to size, but good product

Ordered a Medium for kelty pack but doesn't work for my Osprey 85 Litre, ordering a large. Packs up nicely and is very small, but not true to size, maybe about 1000 litres too small

Almost Perfect
March 02, 2012

I've had two of these pack covers for several years, so I feel confident in saying that they are durable and well-made. The only gripe that I have with them (and it is small), is that there is no fastening system to "hug" the pack as do some competing products, via a snap or velcro that wraps around the middle of the pack.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value, Cons: Bad design
