Osprey Ultralight Raincover
This item served its purpose. The large size fit the Osprey Xenon women's 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 country or a potentially risky place where one could get looted, allows others to know you have a nice pack and isn't entirely what one could call low profile. I had no problem with that, but then again Iceland has hardly any crime and few people.

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.
