Dobsonian Raincoat

All the rain we're getting here in SoCal makes me think I ought to get a scope cover for my 12.5 Dob (and for my 8" SCT for that matter). It seems as though the Desert Storm covers are the most popular, but there are others available too. I've noticed an aluminized heat resistant one sold by ScopeStuff, for instance. Anyone have any favorites?
I'm mainly concerned with rain protection in the event of a sudden unexpected rain shower, but I guess it should double as wind and sun protection while awaiting sunset. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks gang.
