I made it through the Dragon without any problem, Not really a problem IMO. You can always strap the stock seat on the back and swap it out when you get there.

I've been caught in two downpours, wearing an Aerostitch, and both me and the seat dried out with a problem. Didn't notice the seat suffered any more than I did. I never had it be wet after a washing either.

From the Russell site;

Rain covers are advised for all seat cover choices, including all vinyl, since the sewing machine needle holes render them less than 100% waterproof. Our rain covers are made from double coated nylon with little or no stitching except where the bungee cord is sewn into the perimeter. They are sized amply for a loose, wrinkle free fit.
