Excellent value!!!

This is a very durable and rugged rain cover. I have already taken it on a few camping trips. In particular it fared extremely well in a fullblown thunderstorm when I was caught hiking a few miles from my campsite. I was out in the rain for almost an hour, yet nothing underneath the cover got wet AT ALL!!!

The only CON that I would have against this would be that the camo could be designed a little bit better. This DOES NOT mean that it wouldn't serve as effective camo, it simply means that the coloring looks a little OFF. I can't say that I'm 100% satisfied with the camo, however it's only a minor issue in an otherwise excellent product.
Pros: Very rugged
Cons: Camouflage could be a little better...
Would recommend: Yes

I bought the rain cover for my Multicam BFM 500. It fits the pack well enough even when full. I purchased it specifically for the reversible camo/high-visibility option but I'm disappointed at the level of camouflage it provides.
I have yet to take a garden hose to it to test it's water proofing so I can't speak to that but here are a few things to take note of:

The good:
- The design is thick, rugged and seems pretty solid, if somewhat hefty. I have yet to test how well it holds up to rubbing against branches, rocks etc. but it seems like it would fair well.
- Form fitting shape coupled with cinch cords help the rain cover stay on the pack.
- The material doesn't rustle or crinkle much when rubbing against the pack or itself.
- As noted in the pro's line, the orange side is a very visible shade of orange. The only thing I would add to it would be some cat-eye light reflector stripes for high visibility in the dark.


The bad:
- The only thing 'tactical' about the camouflaged side is the tactical placement of the Camelbak logo, so that EVERYONE can see it.
The 'camouflaged' side is one solid color with a huge CAMELBAK logo pasted on it in shiny, black, light reflecting letters. Not exactly inconspicuous. I would have much rather preferred a proper camouflage pattern like the Camelbak packs themselves without the gratuitous, attention grabbing logo.
What's the point of having a camouflaged bag when the rain cover ruins your camo? Furthermore, why are there vari...
