I have never seen this before. This ultra-considerate bike rack has a flip-down panel that keeps your saddle dry if it's raining out:

It was reportedly designed by veteran industrial designer Gijs Bakker, year unknown. I could find no other information on this; if you know anything about it, please drop a line in the comments.

I very much doubt that will even work at keeping a saddle dry.
Seems like the shower cap (or grocery sack) method is a lot simpler.
Yes, what a waste of material/energy. Plus, those foldable things won't last long before they are demolished.I dry my saddle with my butt and have been doing so for years of daily cycling/commuting. It doesn't hurt. Not a big deal.
ups, that was not meant to be a reply to your comment
