Unlimited Actually, here in Cali, being waterproof would not be that big of a deal. It's the sun that destroys tires here. Rainy days are few and far between.

speepdaedeesi ill let you know if the one i get is waterproof tank, i mean tiny lol.
01-28-2009 05:23 PM
tiny terror I like it. Soon as Cavediver gets here I'ma get me one.
01-28-2009 08:59 AM
cavediverjc I got mine for $0......but I had to give 8 years of service for it. It's not waterproof, it's cotton. Mine, that is. It still looks good through 2 deployments, but is too easily stolen, so it lives in a garage while my spare lives on my Jeep. There are alot of military wanna-be's that will steal anything that looks military, so they can LOOK like they're the real thing.

didnt mean to sound like i was offended or anything, i just didnt realize the auction i posted didnt clearly state it was an alice pack cover..

bo biggie bro.

just was saying what i know, because i own a gi issue alice pack cover that i actlually signed for here at fort drum, and its waterproof.

i figure if this one i ordered isnt waterproof, ill just swap em out and give the army the new one lol

speepdaedeesi my alice pack material is the same as my pancho and wet weather material. so it should be waterproof. the whole purpose of an alice pack cover is to keep stuff dry, and fold up and store smaller than the gi issue waterproof bag, and conform to larger shapes. it also has an elastic lining, instead of the drawstring on the wet weather bag. the wet weather bag is thicker material, but no way could you fit a alice pack or even assault pack in it.

so yeah, if they guys descripton of what it is, is correct, it should be waterproof.

guess ill know when it gets here.

also i must note, the one i bought was from a different auction, and was a ''buy it now'' deal, but this one is the same item, just different seller.

blown32 How large a tire will they fit? By the photo, I would guess 33s would be pushing it and would not fit 35s.

MoA ive had my tire cover for 5 years
01-27-2009 10:53 PM
skeeter It's a medium cotton duck canvas.
I used one on my yellow Wrangler. It fit fine, it held up fine but it isn't water proof.
I got mine at a gun show for $1.00. Guy had a huge box full, i keep kicking myself for only buying one.

speepdaedeesi yeah i think its so easy to dismiss anything that isnt for ''intended purpose'' as junk, but sometimes you have to have more of an open mind when you see something and dont understand what it is.

this is not a spare tire cover.

this is a GI ISSUE ALICE PACK COVER, that is being sold as a spare tire cover, because it will fit over a tire.

designed to keep the elemts off your alice pack,ruck sack, or any other gear you have in the field

designed to be tear resistant

currently own one for my ruck sack, as well as a wet weather pancho, and wet weather top and bottom made from the same material, all of which have been to iraq twice, and to the field around 15 times, and seen far more abuse than a spare tire cover on my daily driver ever will, and i have no rips or tears in them, and i stay dry.

so you guys can assume it will not keep out the elements, and just rip, and ill assume it will stay in just as great of shape as all my gi issue waterproof equipment i got issued when i got to fort drum, which was used by many before me, which was made years and years ago, and put through much more use than a spare tire cover will ever see, and still has no rips, and is still waterproof.

ill post an update when it rips, or fails to keep out the elements so you can say you told me so.
01-27-2009 09:43 PM
ccain Well, it all depends. If it's made of nylon ripstop or canvas, it should last a good long time. Don't forget fellas that the original Willy's Jeep tops were made of canvas. And I still have my original ripstop stuff from basic training. Today's synthetic fabrics hold up very well!
01-27-2009 09:33 PM
afrats Yeah, I don't see that lasting too long.
01-27-2009 09:07 PM
4point x2 That thing will get ripped to easily.
01-27-2009 09:04 PM
bpowa the purpose of a tire cover is to keep it out of the elements.. that bedsheet is not gonna do it.. if you want it for looks go for it..
