Wolfman Rainier Tank Bag Rain Cover
Great Product - Not as Extra
I keep with my opinion that this should be bundled with the tank bag originally. I found it was not included when I was hit by a thunderclap, opened the pouch, and found it was empty. Which is fine. Totally my fault for overlooking this really obvious facet.
That being said, the actual cover is high quality. I enjoy that I can still view the map pocket, as I tend to use it for a compass and map, in addition to my phone GPS. In this regard, it beats other tank bag covers.
Reason for 4 stars over 5 is the fact that in terms of bang for buck, it should be included for what you pay for the $199 tank bag.

Should work as advertised
I haven't had to use it in the rain but the fit is good and feels durable.

It's a basic rain cover bag. I haven't had to use it yet but it appears that it would be fine. I do think that it should be included in the bag purchase. Just my thoughts.

Does the job
I would have to agree with some of the other reviewers that for what I paid for the tank bag this little nylon cover should have been included. Seems kind of strange that they make you buy it separately. Also, having a clear window for the map pocket would be very helpful.
Having said all of that,I was caught in a huge storm and rode for about 2 hours in pretty heavy rain and I have to say that the cover did keep the tank bag dry and nothing inside got soaked. So in the end I guess that's all that really matters!

Rode the Great Divide top to bottom during a rainy period with a Canon DSLR I wanted to protect in the Rainier. We rode in our share of rain and the bag and camera stayed dry. Another rider with a plastic bag over his, commented that my good looking cover wasn't going to keep the bag dry, and I had to admit it looked wet and that I was afraid he might be right. He wasn't. It protected well through every rain and stayed securely on.

Great Little Product
Had to have this for my Wolfman Rainier Tank Bag. As usual Revzilla shipped fast and furious and I LOVE dealing with this company! Thanks Zilla Guys and Gals!

The product works well
The only criticism I have for the product is that the cover should have a clear window so that you are still able to view your map in the rain

Perfect fit, high price
Since I just received this, I don't know about the durability.
The rain-cover for the Wolfman Rainier tank bag is a *Perfect* fit. It has no other special qualities.
It does have some drawbacks. The first one is that it is gray, the tank bag is black and yellow, why not make the rain-cover black and/or yellow?
It is merely a small, oddly shaped, synthetic fabric bag with a waterproof coating on the inside and a drawstring. It should be less expensive. I would have expected some added features, such as a built in pocket/zipper so that it could be inverted, tucked in and zipped closed. Also, a lanyard that could be attached to the straps of the bag so that in the wind if it comes loose it won't fly away. I guess I will have to add that myself.
I don't mind paying a premium price for a premium product that shows careful attention to detail and a passion for quality. This product is very simple, which can be a grace in itself if the price is to match. However when the price is higher, would expect more.
