My advise may save you $100, and it's not a garbage bag...

I've had an expensive Kata. It was effective, but cumbersome. It didn't work so well when I left it at home, annoyed at it's size. Unfortunately, many of the times I needed it were ones when I had no warning of rain. Then I had nothing, but to put the camera away.

Now I'm using the silnylon cover from http://fotosharp.com/raincoat_12.html . They come in several sizes, compress to fit in your palm, and are made of the same durable and waterproof material that is so popular in backpacking. It comes in black or translucent, which I prefer for the use of automatically diffused flash. Best of all, the man who makes and sells them is very professional. He sends you the product with an invoice. Once you receive it, then you mail him the payment. Now that's trust in his customers.

I've used mine in hours of rain and have loved its lightweight flexibility, without any fears of leakage.

Without it, I may not have stayed out long enough to get these:
