Osprey UL Raincover

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Kept everything dry. It was raining the entire 5 mile hike to the campsite we happened across. Even kept the bear bag dry overnight. This thing did great. I have a 70 litre bag and my girlfriend has a 65 litre, bought the same one for both bags and it kept everything dry through all kinds of downpours. Full review

REI Duck's Back Rain Cover

rated 4.5 of 5 stars 100L size fits well and sheds water well off my 88L pack. I've used this cover for a couple of seasons and so far it hasn't leaked any water onto my pack. I ended up getting the orange version but now wished for a more natural color when hiding my pack in the woods. I've used it a couple of times in drizzly rain and once in a hard rain and it went on fast, held up well and no leaks. I use an 88L Mountainsmith pack and when it's fully loaded, including my Z-Rest on the bottom, the 100L cover fits… Full review

Outdoor Products Backpacker Rain Cover

rated 4 of 5 stars For $9 at your local Walmart, this is one of the smartest purchases you can make. Back in my cycling days, I bought into the notion that, "You're not a true cyclist unless your bike is worth more than your car." Over time I came to realize it doesn't matter where your gear comes from as long as A) it works, and B) you're happy with it. Case in point is the Outdoor Products rain cover. This item retails off the shelf for $9 at your local Walmart. I weighed mine at 3oz. It fits all of my internal… Full review

Mountainsmith Rain Cover

rated 3 of 5 stars Does what is suppose to do—keep your gear dry, but there are better products out there. This rain cover was included with my first backpack—a discontinued MS external frame pack. Being a novice at the time, I went with what they gave me. My first week-long backpacking trip included 6 days of continual drizzle and light snow. I was using a really pathetic excuse for a tent, and the pack was forced to sit out at night in the never-ending wet. My pack and its contents stayed dry the entire week. Full review

Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Pack Cover

rated 5 of 5 stars The Sea to Summit pack cover is a lightweight and weather resistant pack cover that does a good job in keeping the pack dry. My main use of this item so far has been on a 30-day through-hike on the John Muir Trail where I experienced rain on 10 of the 30 days. The cover got a good amount of use on this trip with lots of "putting it on, taking it off" each time I stopped. Even so, it did its job well and stood up to the rigors of the trail. There is some disagreement about whether a pack cover is… Full review

Osprey Raincover

rated 4 of 5 stars With a 65L Atmos Osprey, the Medium is ample big. Do not buy the large as vendors have Large for 65L. Only reason not 5 stars is no really drenching rain test yet. Main point here is about the fit. I went all over various sites and while vendors list the Large rain fly for the 65L and larger packs ... you'd make a BIG mistake (er ... pun intended ...) buying a large. The Medium fits very nice.   See my review of the Crazy Creek Long Back Chair (for end-of-hike luxury and sleeping pad all in one)… Full review

Osprey Raincover

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great raincover. If you run into a quick downpour as I did in the Rockies, you can whip this thing out and cover your pack while your hiking or while you've set up camp. If it's raining this thing will clear up room in your vestibule by leaving your pack outside without it being soaked in the morning. Water beads up and is quickly repelled off the fabric, with a few shakes it's dry and good to go. I had purchased a large for my Aether 85 (around 5000 c.i. if I recall) but a I think a medium would… Full review

Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Pack Cover

rated 5 of 5 stars Very light, smartly designed, waterproof. Full review

Osprey UL Raincover

rated 5 of 5 stars This item served its purpose. The large size fit the Osprey Xenon Womens 85 well. It kept the pack dry in a lovely Icelandic rain or two. I didn't find it difficult to fit it back into the attached storage pocket, even after use. I wouldn't leave home without it, especially when headed into a potentially rainy environment, as it lessens use of funky chemicals for waterproofing and it wasn't very space or weight consuming. The only thing is the gigantic label on the raincover, which if in a different… Full review
