Rated2out of5byTDDfromPack Cover to Small for my baltoro 75Recently purchased a medium sized pack cover for my Baltoro 75. With a Thermarest Z-lite pad strapped on the bottom, much of the sides of the pack were exposed and it did not really fit. Returned it and got a large. Still no joy. Planning on returning this one as well.

Rated4out of5byBrothefromDoes The JobA standard cover that gets the job done. I purchased primarily for protecting my new pack from airline baggage system and to keep all the straps covered. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I don't care for the bungie cord around the edges. It's fine for hiking but I have to wrap my pack with tape a couple times to keep the cover in place when I check in my pack on the airlines.

Rated2out of5byJenTintheDfromNice cover, if you're a light packerIf you can pack all your gear inside your Gregory backpack, not use the zippered-side-pocket (the one that fits a Nalgene bottle perfectly), limit yourself to one small sleeping pad hanging off the bottom of your pack, and the weather doesn't do more than sprinkle/drizzle a bit - then this rain cover will work halfway-decently for you. It still won't completely reach around the mid-section of my Gregory pack, though. I ordered the XL pack cover for my women's mid-size Gregory backpack, and it's still not big enough.
Also, the drainage holes in the bottom are never actually in a position to drain water if it pooled... that misplacement seems standard with every company's design, though.
I do like the elastic/velcro strap that holds the pack cover on. I'll try to include that feature when I make my own pack cover, which I feel is the only way I'm going to get one that fits well.

Rated5out of5byalankoenig84fromGreat so far!I used this on a few day hikes in the rain, and it seemed to hold up fairly well. I even went hiking through horsetail falls oregon and managed to "test" my rain gear under some wet conditions. It works. Also, I have noticed a slight problem with any rainfly: the part of the backpack that is touching your back can still get wet, so a poncho under heavier rain should actually prevent the back from getting wet (the part that is against your back). I have a Gregory Baltoro 75 and bought the Large rain fly. With the large, I am actually able to stretch it around most of the back...
Also, the color is much brighter than the picture shown... so, it looks nicer!
