bought this specifically for outdoor trek and needed a cover for my bag as it would be raining. the cover was not very effective. the bag was all wet. Initially i thought it might be because i might have used to incorrectly. but another gentleman on the trek had a similar product and was sharing the same complaint.not worth the huge price
Hello Mr. Prasad,
I apologize for the case that our rain cover did not live up to the purpose as per your expectations. As a trekker, I can imagine the problem when a backpack and belongings get wet.
To give you a small insight into this product, the rain cover is made out of 100% Polyamide which is a complete waterproof fabric. Kindly be assured that all our products are tested for usage and quality under two levels, one in the laboratory under artificial conditions and real-time on the field by external users. This enables us to guarantee a 2-year warranty on all our products as we are sure about the quality. Now, in this case, I would be glad if you can let me know the volume of the backpack you had, to be sure you were guided to the right product. Meanwhile, I apologize for the inconvenience caused and request you kindly to visit any of our stores closer to you and get this product exchanged or seek for a refund. I assure you that we will pass the message to the teams concerned to ensure our users do not face this issue in the future.
I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in the future.
It got torn in one Trek
The product is very versatile and useful.It completely covers the back pack and is full water proof.I use it always to cover my backpack even when it is not raining.It protects the backpack from dust and stain .Even during airport shuffling of bags and over long distance drives and trekking it is a must for your loved backpack ;)
The main advantage of this raincover is that it is wide enough to cover the tent, sleeping mat and other bits attached to the outside of the backpack. The elastic around the edges is very stretchy and can fit on various sizes of backpacks, and also strong enough to keep the cover in place.
However, there are two improvements I would suggest:
1) When hiking in very high winds, I would like to be able to secure the cover to my backpack, so that in case the elastic does give way, the cover would not fly off completely. Even a plastic clip or loop of string would do the job.
2)It would be good to have one or two drain holes in the bottom, so that if any water does trickle inside, it would not create a puddle.
But otherwise a great functional product!
Really worth of Money
its a necessary product if you are going to a rainy place but too expensive compared to the price range of other products decathalon offers. its also cheaper from other companies
Very handy. Fits in a small pocket in the rucksack and fits over the bag perfectly!
Haven't used it in the rain as yet...
Its is lightweight, compact, waterproof cover with some degree of dust repellant properties.
It fits the backpack well but lacks stiff strip at the bottom, upper fastening straps for good hold.
A bit expensive but considering 2 year warranty it's worth the money.
I used it on 8 day Rupin Pass Trek. It rained for 3-4 hours on first three days and snowed on 6th day. It did the job well.
Price is very high, approx 300%, I compare it with other site and company, to other buyer Please do a google before you buy.
I should also available in 90-120lts.
