    Does the Job!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    If you are like me and don't like rolling into camp with a soggy backpack full of soggy gear do yourself a favor and get yourself one of these. They are so compact and lightweight when not in use that there is no reason to not be prepared for any potential wet weather.

    Lightweight and Compact

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Only had to use this for the last mile on the way back to the trailhead on the Na Pali Coast, but it worked great with my Aether pack. Awesome that it packs up so small (about the size of a tennis ball). I simply stashed it in my waist belt pocket for easy access. Would recommend!

    Solid pack cover

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got this pack cover for a few months of backpacking through South America. It stuffs down nice n small, and fit my backpack great. I have a 50L Osprey Aura and ordered the size large — seems like there would have been plenty of room to put a sleeping bag under the brain, and possibly a mat across the bottom of the pack as well. I only used it in light rain (all the heavy rain was in the first half of my trip before I bought the cover, ugh), but the construction seems solid and I'm excited to put it to some more good use now that I'm back home!

    Did The Job

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I purchased this rain cover for my backpacking trip to Iceland. Luckily we didn't get the amount of rain we prepared for. However, I can say this cover has done well in light rain and wind. Packs down nicely too.

    Awesome raincover!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. He took it to India and it worked awesome! Used it on some long backpacking trips in multiple countries as well as overnighters here at home. It can resist high winds and stay on your pack without worrying it will fly, water resistance is good. The downside of it is it tears easily if snagged.

    Always Good to Have!

      While I never like having to use it, I always am so thankful on rainy days that I have this pack cover! There's few things worse than being cold and wet all day in the backcountry only to get to camp to have everything else cold and soaked too!

      Stocking Stuffer Anyone?

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is a great gift or add on purchase for anyone with an osprey pack. Super pack-able, I keep mine right in my hip strap pocket. These covers are waterproof and lightweight they will not withstand thick bushwhacking but are perfect for trail hikers looking to keep their gear dry!

      Try reading a rain-soaked map.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it! The large looks like it would fit a wide variety of packs.

      Not to mention a rain-soaked down sleeping bag! (But for a map, I would use a zip-loc or better waterproof bag, and not depend on a backpack rain cover. I once crossed a creek that turned out to be MUCH deeper than trip reports had said, and my backpack got dunked about halfway up. Map was in a zip-loc bag and stayed dry. Stupid me did NOT have sleeping bag protected, and it got soaked. Luckily, it was synthetic, not down, and it still kept me warm enough that night.)

      Must have raincover!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      After a couple backpacking trips in the Uinta Mountain range in Utah I quickly realized how important a rain cover is... I ordered the Large and it fits perfectly on my Aether AG 70. Packs super small and lightweight yet completely covers the pack and keeps everything nice and dry!

      Gotta have a rain cover

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Great little lightweight rain cover for any Osprey pack. It is extremely packable, and easy to toss on in a hurry. I always keep it accessible in case of a pop-up rain storm when hiking/backpacking with my Osprey pack. Overall, would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to ensure everything inside their Osprey pack stays dry when out and about with their Osprey pack!

      Thank you Caleb. To answer Daniel's comment below, i think you would be pushing it to try to fit the medium on a Variant 52. You can buy the medium for the Mutant 38 and see, and then likely buy the large!

      Thank you,

      Osprey Rep

      Pack On//Pack Off

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is a great pack cover, does the job nicely!

      My one critique is the relative lack of adjustability, depending on how you pack your pack. This fits best for a relatively streamlined, tall/narrow pack, rather than a wider//yard sale load.

      High & Dry

        My Atmos 65 (large frame) wouldn't be complete without this rain cover. I ordered size Large and it fits very well, even with a few things bulging out and hanging off of my pack. It keeps your precious cargo dry and can keep you trekking confidently even when it's raining cats and dogs. When it's time to stow it away you won't have to maneuver everything around because it's small enough to be shoved into any open space or hung off of the exterior of your pack. Make sure you don't forget the Osprey Ultralight the next time you hit the trail!

        Don't forget it!

          Has saved me more than once, and allowed me to keep hiking to my destination, otherwise I would have forced to hide out and likley arrived with a wet sleeping bag. Packs small, It never leaves my pack

          I have a Eagle Creek Afar backpack 2050 cu in/34L. I will have additional gear external in the front web. I did not see a Small and I'm afraid the medium maybe too large and won't be snug. enough to keep things dry. Please advise. Thanks

          I have an Osprey Atmos AG 65, what size rain cover should I get?

          How is it secured to the backpack?....buckles, internal bungee, etc? I need it for riding and want to ensure it will stay secure. I have a bungee held cover now and never stays secure.

          Best Answer

          Hey Richard,

          There is an internal full-wrap cinch bungee that will keep it attached over your pack, just make sure you pick up the right size for your pack size and you should have no problems. Hope this helps.

          Richard, what size of pack will you need to cover? If its a small pack to ride with, I am guessing that you will need our Hi -Vis raincover. There is also a cinch across the back that is low profile so you don't know its there.

          What are the XL dimensions?
          For example a loaded winter pack is
          like a Kelty Tioga 6000 cu in with snow shovel, snowshoes,
          ice ax, crampons, tent, 3 foam pads, giant sleeping bag,
          food, water, .70 or more pounds, etc.

          Hey Bob, the XL is designed to cover a pack 4500 ci or greater, up to about 7000 (75 liters - 110 liters). Thats to cover the pack. With all you describe, I am not sure of the overall volume you have with everything hanging off of it... especially the 3 foam pads. Maybe you can find a way to strap some things on the outside of the raincover? You'll have to devise lashing straps, etc. Hope this answer makes sense!


          Osprey Rep

          Hello I have an Aether 60. I assume a large would be the correct size or would a medium fit?

          Best Answer

          I also have an Aether 60. Fully packed even without a sleeping pad in the cinch straps on the bottom the Large is just not big enough. Really just shy. Add the sleeping pad and the XL is perfect. Or you could do what I did... Order the Large check it out then exchange it for the XL. Hope that helps.

          Will a medium be able to fit an osprey 52 liter pack? I understand the M is designed for 30-50 liter bags, but is there any wiggle room?

          Hi, What size cover will I need to fit the Osprey Atmos 50 Pack

          hi, what size cover will i need to fit the Exos 58 Medium?
