I carried an Olympus E500 in a Lowepro Nova AW whilst backpacking in Scotland. It started to rain, so I put on the cover. When I got to my destination I found an inch of water in the bottom of the bag. Fortunately I'd put my wallet in the bottom of the bag and the E500 was sitting on top of it, giving some protection.

Jim, not all of us have such fat wallets, particularly after shelling out for 2 x E-M1-2 bodies!
