Opsrey's Ultralight Waterproof Raincover attaches securely to your pack, keeping both your pack and gear dry and stows neatly into it's own pocket.
That rainstorm you've been dodging all day has caught up. You'll need to quickly ensure your pack and gear is completely protected. We've been continually developing our range of raincovers and have designed a range of ultralight raincovers perfect for defending against downpours. Featuring a full wrap-around cinch attachment, secure hipbelt and harness attachments to keep your pack totally covered. Each ultralight raincover packs down to roughly the size of a tennis ball and comes with its own pouch for easy storage. Whilst reflective graphics and blinker light attachment will ensure you're always seen.
Some rucksacks come with their own waterproof rain covers, but for those that don't, it's best to purchase one separately to ensure the contents of your pack stay dry. Obviously they are not always needed if your traveling through hot and dry climates but for those who regularly trek in wet conditions (hello UK) your pack slowly starts to absorb rainwater, making your pack feel heavier and heavier, whilst ruining the kit inside.
Osprey's Ultralight Rain Covers are lightweight to carry and compact when not in use. The covers have a nice reflective logo on the front and there's a bright lime colour around the edges so it's easier too see and attach once the sun starts to go down. They're available in three sizes so make sure you get the right size for your pack.
