One of our forum members mentioned Packsacks in one of their posts.
I went onto the EXPED website and bought an XL packsack liner for my backpack. It worked like a charm, kept everything inside completely dry even when torrential rains at the start of our walk got past the pack cover and into my backpack.
I see from the website that they have introduced Packsacks with see through panels which should be very useful if you are searching for something and don't want to unpack the whole bag.
Go to EXPED.COM - click on English, then on Products, then on Packsacks.

The Way: Through a Field of Stars (audiobook)
A great book to listen to while training for the Camino or to relive the experience!

You are quite right but plastic bags tear easily, and they are noisy!

I bought a pack sack at an outdoor store in Bordeaux. I didn't have much trouble with rain during my trek (July - August of 2007). I also had a poncho that went over both me and the pack, so that was probably enough protection. But, better safe than sorry.

One issue I had with the pack sack was that it negated the advantage of a multi-access-point pack. I always had to unpack everything from the top down to get something, vs. go through the front zipper or the sleeping bag zipper. Guess there are pluses and minuses to everything. :arrow:
