Hi friends,

I have a question about rain cover.

Recently bought this Backpack:
North Face Primero 70
The only thing he does not come with a cover, as Greece is made stuff is hydrophobic (Water resistent and Water Proof). Specifically, the CAP and the bottom are Water proof and the rest Water Resistent (at least from what I can gather from the seller).
Seller's store North Face claimed the material it may the case prevents the entry of moisture and water, just as the simple cover that comes with all the other files.
So some questions I have:

Do you think I should buy a cover (cover with rubber dresses on the knapsack)? Or trust what the seller.
In addition, I realized I should buy coverage with zippers that can be locked, for cases in which leave the hostel and equipment for flights and travel.
What do you say? Buy both types of covers?
Maybe not to buy any of achisois?
It should be noted that I intend to do many treks in South America, and be specific in November-December in Patagonia, so that probably expected me some rain and snow, and I'd like to go camping with.

Thanks in advance!!

Recommend with rubber cover just in case.
Basically it's really like that, but not the seller said zippers completely sealed and therefore I would recommend.
Alternatively you can use stuff sack in 50-60 gallons be waterproof.

Anyway, seal the seams. Almost never seams not sealed bags.
I'm on my drive with rain cover seal nylon, weighing several tens of grams, not death and covered here and here. Another option – simply put all the equipment component inside garbage bags and close.

This particular pod is more opaque than others.

And what about covers?

I'm thinking about buying this kind of coverage to be sure as rain cover for backpack, and flights and bus trips, to keep the case.

What do you say? Worthwhile? If so, which one is better?

On the model of wild cat I don't recommend because you have to put your shoulder's tracks.
The outdoor is great.

Whether the model of Outdoor waterproof rain

Because another forum somebody said they made him, and he wasn't very durable against water.

Whether for my backpack, "some" rain is water resistant and will do?

That's enough.
