I use a Burley Nomad trailer and pack the 3/4 length Thermarest and Mini-sleeping bag in a plastic bag. They stay totally dry in all conditions.
May the wind be at your back!

I feel like I should mention that while Therm-A-Rests are indeed waterproof, one might want to think twice before plopping a down sleeping bag onto a wet pad.  Keep it dry!

I keep my down sleeping bag dry by placing a plastic trash bag in the stuff sack before stuffing the bag in.  I keep my Therm-A-Rest dry by rolling my tent's ground tarp around it.  If things are really wet out, I will wrap my pad in its own plastic bag.

get a B.O.B. trailer they come with a huge dri- sack and you can put more than whats needed for a tour in the bag with more room to spare.
