Vent pipe cap

Looking for a cap to slip on this black tank vent pipe to keep rain out but allow air to escape. Any recommendations? Has a 1.5" inside diameter.

Not really necessary, any rain will simply go down the vent pipe into the holding tank or drain piping. Now the seal between the pipe and the metal is a different issue. That needs to be kept intact.

This particular vent pipe is about to be connected to the vent fan on our composting toilet. The fan is electric and the waste is supposed to be dry. Any leads on a slip on style cap?

Here's what I think is the nicest one. It is the original style from our 1974 Sov. A bit pricey: what you see in that image (cap, rubber seal, screen) is $50 at Inland.
