    The flap is sufficient in covering the sides, nylon is extremely water resistant. I have had my exposed in light rain when no noticeable water seepage all my paperwork and books were fine. I would of course not try the same in torrential rain. Generally any messenger bag can be shield from the rain using the body either way or by umbrella better than a back pack.
