On two separate occasions I was walking in torrential rain, ironically both times I have left Astorga, and within half an hour or so became not only drenched but the contents on my backpack were also saturated. Foolishly I assumed that the rain cover was supposed at least to keep the pack dry although I was aware that no clothing is sufficiently water resistant if the rain is too heavy to keep me dry. I am walking again from SJPdP in April and this time intend to keep the entire contents of my pack contained in a plastic bin liner. Shame I didn't think of this before but I would thoroughly recommend it to any newbies. Perhaps its just me and everyone else does it as a matter of course.
