Protect your backpack from pouring rain and muddy ground with our Pack Cover. Our pack cover is an ultralight option to keep your backpack dry, including the outside pockets. It includes an elastic clip to secure it from storm winds.

Consider a Pack Liner as an alternative, if you don't mind your outer pockets getting wet.

  • Constructed from Spruce Green .74 oz/sqyd Dyneema Composite Fabric.  

  • 100% waterproof, seamless design.  

  • A 1/16" shock cord drawstring cinches tight around your pack. The shock cord has a clip on it to secure under your shoulder straps or through your haul loop so that the pack cover can't blow away.    

  • The pack cover also has loops at the lower corners. In high wind they can be clipped to your pack's belt with small carabiners (not included). They normally aren't necessary.  

  • The covers are sized to fit the specified backpacks at maximum capacity, however they may not fit if bulky items are strapped to the outside of the pack. Size up if in doubt.  

  • A 2.5" x 2.5" (6.5 x 6.5 cm) stuff sack is included in the price and weight.

  • All Zpacks gear has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.

  • Made in the USA.

.74 oz/sqyd Dyneema Composite Fabric

Dyneema Composite Fabric is composed of high strength Dyneema fiber laminated inside a polyester membrane. It is inherently waterproof and does not require any coatings or DWR treatment. DCF has very high tensile strength for its weight and does not stretch.

This version has a higher Dyneema thread count which gives it a additional tear strength and abrasion resistance compared to our thinnest fabric.

Tensile Strength:
 104 lb/in (911 N/5cm)

Puncture Strength:
 3.1 lb (14 N)

Water Resistance:
 20,000 mmH₂O

Made in the USA.

DCF Pack Cover

This pack cover is absolutely amazing! Kept my entire pack bone dry for more than 6 hours in continual rain and snow. I loved the extra Mitten hooks on the bottom two corners that kept the pack cover snug to my backpack even in the Wind. Dyneema is pricey but totally worth it for durability, compressability, and weight!

Very lightweight

Very lightweight, functional. But I hope there is a 1.0oz/sqyd option, so that it can be more (bushwhacking) wear resistant.
