I've been looking for a solution to keep my equipment safe and dry when it sprinkles or rains during an event. I happened upon the idea of using a mini popup greenhouse to put over the equipment rack which can be setup in seconds and then staked down. After hours of pouring over Google and Amazon, I think this is the best solution:

It's $30-$50 depending on the size you need, but even the smallest one would easily cover a little portable rackmount case with a projector sitting on top. The door could be kept open to still have access to the equipment controls and a hole could be cut in the plastic on the back side for the projector to shoot through. What do you guys think?

This seems like a very portable answer to  light rain problems.
My only worry would be the toughness of the fabric and the strength of the uprights.
My youngest grandchild has a pop-up circus tent from IKEA (I think) which gets a lot of use and it hasn't torn, but one of the plastic uprights broke right away. However, I think I can safely assume you're not two years old, so you'll be a lot more careful.

If I needed such a thing (I'm in drought-stricken California), I would easily take a chance on this. You're clever to have spotted it and thought of how to use it.
