Great idea!  I hadn't thought of that...  Actually, most of the time I just
don't take a packcover at all (my pack seems to be fairly waterproof - and
it doesn't usually rain a lot where I usually hike (southwest USA and high
Sierra in July/August)), but then worry what will happen if a monsoon sneaks
up on me.  This sounds like a good, lightweight compromise.
