Water Resistant Force-Fed Hopper

Title says it all. Just picked up a Palmer's Blazer and will be looking to get a force-fed hopper. I'm not looking to go scuba diving with it, just don't want to have to put a bag over it like i've seen some with electros do at scenario games.

Anyone who's used force-fed hoppers and played in the rain w/o bagging it post up. I'm looking for something low profile and at least 180 capacity. Thanks!

Most high end loaders are fine as long as they don't have a speedfeed.

I use a Halo V35 w/ rip and never had any issues with water. Just don't use the speed cap and your set.

A simple strip of electrical tape over the shell seam will prevent most problems with the rain.

Stay away from the Egg. Like the hopper, not good in the rain.
