Wanted to use this kit and get the cover on for the rainy season, and see how it fares compared to it being completely exposed.

If it's the OEM neoprene cover....not great.  I found it soaks up water and holds it.  It's also pretty short lived.  It probably does help keep road grit and grime off the moving parts though.

 

I haven't checked if one exists, but I'm sure somebody could make a waterproof cover pretty easily.  it's not particularly hard to do.  Make it out of waxed canvas maybe for a 'traditional' look?

No, definitely not the neopene cover. I got a Jackcovers.com (now Step 22 Gear) cover for the Hi-Lift. Same one Erin has on her Hi-Lift, just in orange (of course!).

I had my upholstery guy make me a half a dozen ‘pleather’ covers with waterproof zippers.

They seem to do a pretty good job, and last about a year and a half.

… And yes I know that waterproof zippers aren’t a “real thing”.

I am really happy with the Jackcover I have.  It's is really durable so far, so we'll see what the life expectancy is for it, but all in all, worth it in my opinion.
