Särmä backpack rain cover, orange
In many situations more visibility means better survivability, like amongst urban traffic or when hunting (conversely, probably not during the Italian hunting season). Around here the weather is usually crappy too. Thus, a perfect accessory for anyone wearing a backpack is a rain cover for it.
Completely waterproof, very visible and simple, clever cover for smaller daypack style rucksacks. Elastic cord & plastic slidelock fastening. This means you just have to slide it over the pack when you need it and probably won't have to touch the cord adjustments ever once they are set.
For a piece of "formless" fabric like this it's difficult to give any usable measurements, but by examples the fit is probably better explained: very nice fit with the classic German mountain ruck, also works with Assault Pack type rucksacks, Small & Large, provided it's not overpacked. In other words, this should slide over most about 35 litre packs.
While we're at it, we also have a traditional rain cape made of the same orange fabric.
Made of 100% polyamide with ripstop reinforcement, PU coated. Waterproofness officially 5000 mm (i.e. would hold water out in pressure comparable to 5 m depth), probably exceeds it. In other words, this is as waterproof as they get.

Protects the bag from rain nicely and protects me from getting hit by a blind car driver in the rain.
Note: Be careful when stretching the cover over the backpack. The stretchy band in the rim is close to the breaking point when stretching over the size of my pack. Should be pretty easy to replace if broken though, but be careful just in case.
