Wasn't sure where to ask this, so decided on packing.
We had several days of rain, and did fairly well, except for the backpacks.
They were soaked! These were our day bags for hiking. Thought about it on the trip, and wondered if anyone uses waterproof covering for their backpacks. If so, what brand?
My Northface did well shielding me from rain and wind, but the others in our party didn't fare too well. They used Eigle water resistant, and that left them damp and cold.
What about phones? I used ziploc bags. My camera made me nervous!! We tried to protect it as much as possible. And the lenses.
