Thanks for reaching out to the Community! Rain covers are typically designed to cover the entire pack, including the bottom of the bag completely. Being able to cover a sleeping pad that is attached below is not normally a problem. My only concern would be if the type of pad you are considering is something like the Z Lite, you will likely run into trouble. With choosing a pad that is wider than the base of your bag, the rain cover will have difficulty making the stretch.
If you let us know exactly what you’re looking at, we might be able to offer additional guidance as well!
