Packing for the AT- Do I bring my pack cover? on 06/11/2013 19:52:23 MDT Print View

I'm packing for an AT trip- Partnership Shelter to Katahdin- 1656 miles in about 75 days starting 6/14. I can't decide if it's worth bringing my pack cover: It just doesn't seem to help much (any?).

Pack- Osprey Atmos 65
cover- ZPacks large cuben fiber 41.2g
Everything in the pack is in a drybag or a ziplock

Base weight including pack 12.5 lbs


Any thoughts?

Just a trash compactor bag for me on long trips. Might get away with a nylofume bag for shorter trips or not precipitation forecasted. GL!
