Good material

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Cover is waterproof and looks good. Bungee cord going around does a ok job at staying on my pack. (NF Terra 65) No wear signs after several uses. Packs up in a quart zip lock bag. If I have my crocks on the back of my back it is alil small but works. If youattack gear to the outside of yiur pack and have a 65L I'd prob get a bigger cover.
Wish it had a strap to go across the center to further tighten it down.

Good Cover

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this north face cover for my Ariel 65 pack after every L Osprey cover was out of stock or backordered a few days before a backpacking trip. The pack cover was 100% as advertised, easy to put on and durable (used it several times to fend against everything from drizzle to sideways downpour) . I do wish the cover came with some kind of pouch or pocket to pack it into, as it was sometimes clumsy stuffing it into the brain of my pack. Otherwise well worth the investment.

It runs big, very big.!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Still an amazing product, no doubt about that.!!!!
It protects amazingly, not a single drop went through my bag.!!! Thumbs up for north face AGAIN.!!!
But size wise, ITS BIG, I got an XL FOR MY ROUTER TRANSIT, and it's very big, but you can always adjust it.!!! My suggestion is go for smal sizes and you probably still have to adjust.!!!

Kept my 34 L pack nice and dry

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

When I first opened the box, I thought that the cover looked a bit cheap, but I put it to the test on a recent Everest Base Camp trek. A sudden snow storm forced me to be hiking in mixed precipitation for 7 hours. My pack stayed dry, and water beaded right off the cover. It's nice and light, and the draw string is easy to use in a rushed situation. I was carrying a 34L Mountain Hardwear pack, and a size medium fit perfectly with a little room to spare.

Arc'Teryx Altra 65

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this as an inexpensive option my Arc'teryx Altra 65 pack. Fully loaded, the Large didn't fit my pack. If I wasn't so loaded up, I think this would've worked just fine. I still used it and it kept my pack dry, just had a hard time staying on at the bottom.

Least Expensive... but not cheap

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought this for an upcoming trip and chose it because every other option was a lot more expensive.

I wore it over my 25L pack from EMS. It rained, I used it, bag stayed dry. There isn't much else to explain. This product performed task it was designed for flawlessly. Not sure what more expensive covers could possibly offer to justify price difference.

Bungee cinch allowed cover to fit tight around bag. Bright red color is cool.

High Quality

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use this on my Terra 65 and it works extremely well. I have the Large size and it fits my pack nicely and it's even big enough to go around my water bottle/sleeping pad/whatever else I have on the side of the bag. Keeps water out beautifully and goes on and off relatively easily.

Also, it packs it quite small and doesn't weight much which works out nicely considering it's size. Finally, it dries quickly. You can be rained all day and then once it clears up give the rain cover another hour or so to dry it and it's good to go to stuff back into you bag. Of course I'd make sure it's very dry before packing it away to store. It will also take the wear and tear of hiking/backpacking. I've use a fair amount in some thickish bush and never had a tear or anything.

Bought for my Terra 45.

    I saw a video review of North Face Terra 45 and in the video, a rain cover was included with the backpack. When I received my order it wasn't. So I spend another $15 for a rain cover. I found out that the European North Face website for the Terra 45 shows that the rain cover is included, but in the U.S. site, it is not even mentioned. Oh wells. The medium fits my pack fine, although I haven't tried to stuff it full capacity.

    Good product, bad price

      I have purchased the North Face Pack Rain Cover from Backcountry. The product arrived in a timely manner and I was able to test it out during a torrential downpour while commuting to school. I was in the rain for about half an hour getting drenched and I mean drenched as in my pants and my shirt looked like I took a dip in a swimming pool even with a umbrella! After reaching indoors I took the cover off my pack and even after going through several downpours, my pack and all my books were dry. However, the retail price tag that came with this cover says $15.00, I don't understand why Backcountry charges an extra $4.99. I sent an email asking why but I still haven't gotten a reply back. The product works but I just find the pricing a bit unfair.

      Good Rain Cover

        I bought the medium North Face Pack Rain Cover for my Terra 35 and Terra 45 backbacks based on the recommendations from the manufacturer. It was a good fit for the fully packed Terra 35, but it is way too small for a fully packed Terra 45. It seems to be a pretty good rain cover and repels the water pretty nicely.

        Unanswered Question

        Looking for a backpack cover for my daughter and my niece - college students trying to keep their book bags dry. Just a standard Swiss Army backpack and a North Face backpack like students carry their books in at school. What size? Height is between 18 and 24 inches. Don't have a "liter" measurement.

        What size should I buy for a women's TNF Terra 55 size XS backpack?

        I have a North Face Surge backpack that I wear while commuting on my motorcycle. It is 33L in size. Since I use it while commuting I don't have it stuffed full - usually no more than 50%. I need a rain cover and think this TNF cover would work great.

        Question is which size - Small (which says it works up to 30L) or Medium (35L+). Given I will be on a motorcycle I would like to make sure the cover fits snug but I obviously don't want to get it too small.


        Hi, I have this 2 bags:
        - North face terra 65 (For men)
        - North face terra 45 (For Women)
        What are the best size to this 2 bags?

        I have a l/XL conness 70 pack. I'm getting mixed feedback on which size would be appropriate. Would you recommend the L or XL cover? Thanks!

        Looks like you are out of the Large, will they be restocked, or am

        I better off ordering elsewhere? I assume large is the right size for a TNF Banchee 65?

        What size would I need for a Drago Tracker backpack 18"x11"x11" (1,800 cu in)? I'd like a snug fit (but not impossibly tight). Thanks!

        What size should I get for an Osprey Aether 70L pack if I plan on having some stuff attached to the outside of the pack?

        Hey There,

        As long as its not bulky you should be fine with the L. Also, Osprey makes a rain cover as well, item #OSP0131, which will fit better on your pack.

        What are you planning on having strapped to the outside of the pack? Give me a call at 1-800-409-4502 ext 4446 or email at and I'd be glad to discuss packs and gear with you further.

        I have the North Face Terra 45, and I see that the medium would fit. However, if I have it packed to the brim (without any additional pieces outside of pack besides water bottle), will it still be okay? I'm worried about it being too small, as I noticed somebody else said so. Thanks!

        Best Answer

        Being in between sizes this rain cover really isn't the best choice for your pack. They typically leave a little room in these for any external items that might need to be covered so you might be able to get away with the size small for a really tight fit or the size Medium for a loose fit. Personally I would go with a tight fit over a loose fit.

        I have a north face scarab 65L pack and was wondering which size I should go with? I know the large is up to 70L but I'm going to have a tent or sleeping bag strapped to bottom of 65L pack. So I wasn't sure if I needed to go up a size?

        How about a fully packed terra 55 ........

        How about a fully packed terra 55 ..... Nothing really on the outside except water bottle extra pair of shoes

        Hey Zachn,

        The Large rain cover is sized for 50-70L packs so that will be the size you will want to go with. Lucky for you with that extra space you might actually be able to fit a few thing on the outside or your pack as well if you decide to in the future.
