Here's an idea:

13599

$73 here with shipping: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Outdoor-Research-Pack-Hoody-34390-Lichen-/310542848136?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item484dcbd088

I don't see it on OR's website anymore. If it were me, that'd be my choice, although it's kinda spendy...

I have a small Sea to Summit for my Scout that does a good job.

I usually just use a USGI poncho. As long as I keep it camp dry'ed, it seems to work for me here in Washington State.

I have a cover from Integral Tactical that fits up to 90 liters. It's really nice but I've never used it with all of the pockets on my ZXR (just the main bag) and I'm a little worried about it's ability to cover everything if I have a full load out. Integral tactical just got bought so finding some of there stuff is getting kind of hard. Which is a shame since they're a great company. I've been looking at the Eberlestock covers that rob mentions in his post a lot lately.


Why doesn't Kifaru make pack covers?

I would think that a large quality winter pattern like Kryptek "Yeti" would have a broad market. For me it does not need to be waterproof, I just need a winter cover for predator hunting with the Kryptek "Highlander" packs.

Or buy a MEST and it'll cover a pack or provide shelter.

It will cost you about $120 for two rolls, 5 feet by 15 feet each, but you can buy the yeti fabric in 330D here...

Cut a rectangle to the right size, sew a channel around the outside with paracord inside of it, add a toggle on the ends of the paracord and you have a custom pack cover.
