and then splatter down your back.
It's okay; you probably need a shower anyway.
Choose a larger pack cover than you think you will need. This allows you to dangle stuff off your pack and still cover it - things like camp shoes, sleeping pads, and tents are often strapped to the outside or may be so in a pinch. Usually a larger size weighs no more than an ounce or two extra, and those extra ounces are easily made up on rainy days by keeping your entire pack dry.
|How orange was my pack cover.|
I have always purchased orange pack covers because I feel that, even if not blaze orange, the color sticks out enough to help me not get shot. Additional precautions are needed during hunting season, but every little bit helps.
