Water-Tight CoverI bought this for a 2010 Camelbak Cloudwalker that I use for day hiking. The first time I tried this, I was biking after a hard drenching rain. Getting it on my backpack was not difficult. The outside got some minor mud stripes that came off easily. However, my bag and the inside of the cover had a lots of moisture on them. The second time I tried it was was a month later on a night hike; I used it for the visibility. After 2 hours, the outside was dry (it was a clear night), but again, my bag and inside the cover were quite wet. I realized that I was sweating through my fleece jacket and cotton shirts, and it was condensing on the inside of the cover because it is so water tight. To solve this problem, I had to wear a waterproof shell to prevent moisture from my sweat from condensing on the inside of the cover.
I feel this is a great product at a reasonable price. It folds up flat and weighs almost nothing. I just had to learn how to use it properly.

This product is easy to useI almost didn't buy this product, because so many reviewers said they couldn't figure out how to use it, but I was tired of my backpack getting soaked on the walk to/from work. All you have to do is thread the black strap between the shoulder straps and the back panel and then through the elastic loop to secure it at the top.
