Accessory Review: Granite Gear Cloud Cover

A light pack cover that kept contents dry in rain from New Zealand to the Pacific Northwest

“Finally, a pack cover so light I don’t hesitate to carry it on fair-weather trips,” reports Northwest editor Michael Lanza after saving his gear from a soaking with this ultralight siliconized nylon cover. He says it kept pack contents dry in rain from New Zealand to the Pacific Northwest. Drawcords and multiple sizes allow you to fit the covers on everything from larger daypacks to weeklong models. The thin fabric is fairly durable, but don’t drag it over rock or through briers.
