I made sure to get this rain cover to go along with my new Travoy trailer, as I'll be using the Travoy to haul musical instruments and sound gear for which I don't want to risk any weather-related damage. The cover works well at keeping out the wet, including splatter from damp roads, and it adds a significant amount of visibility. The way it attaches to the trailer and stows away in its little pouch is ingenious! My only issue with this is the so-called "light tab." This is a little nylon strip sewn onto the center of the rain cover, ostensibly to provide a place to clip a tail light, but it is neither sturdy nor stable enough for this purpose. Unless you have your trailer loaded up enough to ensure that the cover will be as taught as possible over your cargo, any light clipped onto that tab will only flop around as you're riding, hang limply and point downward uselessly, and very possibly just fall off. The only purpose I could find for that little fabric loop was as a place to tuck the tail end of the drawcord.
I am SO glad I have this addition to my Travoy. It absolutely expands my range and allows me to use the trailer more. I commute year round and do my grocery shopping by bike. The rain cover is extremely useful for protecting your stuff, whether it's due to bright sun (fading), rain, snow, slush or leftover puddles. It easily stores on the bike, takes seconds to cover (although a bit longer to store back in its bag), and has effective reflective striping. The bungee cords do a good job customizing the fit, even if you have nonstandard things in the trailer such as golf clubs or musical instrument cases. One caveat: be sure to allow the cover to dry off well before storing it long term or it can mildew. Found this out the hard way; however, Febreze to the rescue! I was able to get the stink out and now I am more careful before storing it in its bag.
