I use mine outdoors all the time, it is tougher than you think, but I always keep one of these http://www.amazon.com/OP-TECH-USA-Rainsleeve-18-Inch/dp/B000PTFDYO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358958771&sr=8-1&keywords=camera+rain+sleeve in mybag just in case,and if sitting on my tripod waiting for a shot I often just drape a black garbage bag over the whole setup.
