Hi Joko,

well for me, it depends on the kind of rain/water.
when its just a little bit, I use a rain cover for a backpack. You can buy them at any outdoor-store. I use soms clips to attach it to my monitor and fold it over the handunit.

when its rainy, i get the big umrella out of the van, and use the backpack cover.

and offcourse when its a Dutch day of rain rain rain, i get out my hand made neoprene cover.
you can put 2 hands inside, and it has a clear top so you can see your wheel.
dont forget to make air-holes!


there is also an official verson:

and, its just for the handunit. when its that rainy, i leave the monitor underneath the umbrella.


and when shooting near the sea, you just cover it up allll the way. Salt water destroys it all.


good luck!

Nothing to add really, I just do exactly as Rose said! I try to leave the hand unit uncovered for as long as possible, but I usually have better luck with large plastic bags from the grocery store, and I just either tear a hole in the side for the knob or leave it open - its a wasteful solution, but sometimes better than breaking out the Harrison cover. 

Photo below I repurposed the Harrison cover as a monitor cover once we moved under cover.
