Introduction: GarbageBag-RainCoat

Subtle design changes spruce up the classic garbage-bag-pancho. Now with a stylish cap and extra room to keep baggage dry.

Step 1: Parts Layout

(1) Garbage Bag. Shown here is a 42 gallon bag. Soize to your person.
(2) scissors

Step 2: Cut Head-hole (and Cap!)

WARNING: be very careful with big plastic bags! It is NOT ok to suffocate while putting a garbage bag on yourself.

The garbagebag-raincoats i have seen in the past put the head hole in the middle of the bottom of the bag, and this works for many situations. Though, when I'm caught by a sudden rainstorm, I'm less worried about myself and more worried about my expensive textbooks, laptops, etc.

Find a corner of the garbagebag on the side with no opening. Cut out a triangle for your head to go through. Keep the triangle, it will also be your cap.

Step 3: Arm Holes

Put the bag over your head and get a friend to mark on the bag right abouts where your shoulders are. We used a piece of scotch tape to mark the holes.

Now, take the bag off and cut holes for arms.

All the works done, now go play in the rain!

Step 4: Wearing the GarbageBag-RainCoat

Below are before and after pictures of the garbagebag-raincoat. By placing the head hole in a corner, big(ger) backpacks and bags can be worn safe from the rain.
