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 .75 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.

Dry packing in the rain

Super light and goes over pack generously. Will also be useful to protect pack and boots in leaky tent vestibule in storms.

Love this. Perfect addition to my kit

This is wonderful. I ordered the medium and probably should actually have a large so I may order another and use the smaller one for my day pack, but this is well sewn and very light and packs down tiny.

Love this pack cover

Wonderful, compact, obviously light... but I have two mesh top pockets and two hip pouches on my arc zip 57L and this works wonderfully with my side pockets and main compartment full.

Pack cover so far so good!

Just in time!!! I received the pack cover the day before I left on trip with my son in the snow in North Georgia, used my altaplex tent, duplex hadn’t arrived yet... it began snowing @ 1:30-2pm on the 2.5-3 mile hike in to the shelter... and didn’t stop til 8:30am the next morning... wasn’t able to take pictures while hiking, but I left the pack covered, just underneath the altaplex doors, woke up to 6-8inches and pack cover snowed over from blue to white!!! Nothing got wet or even dusted with snow... fell asleep and forgot to bring pack in the tent...glad I purchased it... kept the snow off while hiking...kept pack from snow freeze during a snowstorm... couldn’t be happier... and on to the spring and summer rain tests... will extend the review after a couple of rainy hikes... thank you for a great product!!!
