Rain cover for K-01 and 77 ltd

Hi everyone,
I am excited about a trip that may involve photographing rain forests. Does anyone have any suggestions for a rain sleeve cover for a K01 and 77 ltd combo? Many thanks for your help!

BTW, I am looking at what member Calsan suggested in my previous thread on waterproof options

http://www.outex.com

Anyone used outex in here?

Don't know how expensive you wish to go; but for a very inexpensive rain cover, here's Optech:

Ewa Marine. I used their rain capes back in the 1980s for my film cameras. They make underwater enclosures too.

I would definitely go for something waterproof (ie sealed), like the stuff you linked to, rather than just a rain cover. In a rainforest environment it's not just actual rainfall you have to worry about but also the humidity.

Thank you for the suggestion. I think at some point I will probably get an ewa marine.

Thank you for the advice. I am actually not going to take the K01. I decided to go with the K5IIs and 20-40 limited that is weather resistant. That combo may give me more peace of mind.

Thank you all for your guidance!!
