Here's what others have to say...

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.


Best Answer

I use the large (50-70L) on my 60L pack (stuffed) and the cover fits very generously over it; I usually have to get creative to soak up the extra slack. I would definitely suggest a small cover over the medium. You could probably even get away with the XS.

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.!!!

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?

Hey Tatiana,

For the Terra 65, you will want to pick up the Large rain cover, and for the Terra 45, you will want to pick up the Medium rain cover.

If you have any other questions, give me a call.

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.

Kept my 34 L pack nice and dry

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?

Best Answer

Hey Konrad, no a large will NOT be big enough. You most definitely will need the XL. The sizing on these is almost a size off. I have a 46 liter pack and the medium which is supposed to cover up to 45 liters was too small - even with my bag not fully packed. Hope this helps!

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.

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!

Best Answer

That pack is about 29.5 L in volume, I would suggest the S for this pack cover. It will fit up to a 30 L volume pack.

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.

Hey Suthrnlv,

You are probably going to want to find this rain cover in a size small. for that pack.

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!

You should be fine with the Medium still. They typically over size the rain covers a little for people who overpack or pack on the outside.

What is the suitable rain cover Size for Surge II (32 L.) and Router (41 L.)?

Best Answer

Hey Toni,

Seeing as this item is out of stock, I'd personally go with the Osprey UL Raincover in a size Small. The size small covers packs from 20-40 liters, so it will definitely fit your Surge II, but may be a tad of a squeeze for the Router.

Hope this helps!

what size is it for a 33L hot shot?

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.

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.

What size should I get for a North Face Heckler backpack??I think its a 35L bag and I think a medium size would be too big for the bag..Any ideas?

Hey Toe,

You might be able to get the small to stretch out over the Heckler but being a 36L pack, if you have it filled to the brim you might not be able to get it fully covered. It might might be a good idea to try both sizes and keep the one that fits best.

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?

Hey Elliott,

Honestly I think you would be better off getting the large rain cover but going with the XL might be worth a shot as well. Otherwise the great thing about raincovers is that you don't have to stay brand specific and you can put a Sea To Summit cover on a North Face pack without any issues.

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.

If you ever have any questions about what size to get we have the sizes listed under the tech specs.
