Have no use for your old wetsuits? Try this, make safe secure, soft and waterproof bags out of old
Anyway the result is lush soft and bouncy, waterproof, and orange. All things I like, plus it will
stretch to fit two notebooks and a burrito. I got overzealous and even built a matching ipod case
that has seen dozens of falls cradling my music machine.
While I don?t think it is enough to start an O?Neill wetsuits type business, it is a fun bag, gets very
noticed (by hipsters not thieves) and makes me feel like I foiled the landfill again. All that and it
only took about 4 hours.
Step 1: This is what you are aiming at.
a snug fitting, squishy bag for your precious electronics.
Step 2: Plans / Pattern
Determine the size of your computer. Cut your neoprene front and rear covers a little oversized.
Step 3: Choose your neoprene.
Neoprene is a closed-cell foam. Closed cell foams are basically thousands of tiny bubbles surrounded by rubber where none of the bubbles join any others. This confers their water-proofness. Open cell foams are those where all the bubbles intersect and overlap. These become waterlogged and don?t trap air which is a better insulator than any plastic or rubber by itself.
