    Has anyone come across a rain cover similar to what would come with a small camera bag, but that could be used to cover a camera clipped to a backpack with a Peak Design Capture Clip? The camera would be clipped as per the image below, and I'd like a rain cover I could put snugly over it for light rain. I understand it's not going to be 100% reliable in heavy rain. Thanks!

    Thanks! Looks like that would provide a decent amount of protection from small knocks, too, not just weather. In my subsequent googling on this topic I also came across a variety of other options - for anyone interested there are some options shown at https://shuttermuse.com/best-camera-rain-covers/

    Thanks for that link. (In my case, I'm going to be on a multi-day hike and an umbrella is not an option. Good for most other situations, though.)
