I am an Outdoor Photographer who tends to use creativity rather then Spending. Often while outside outside it could suddenly rain so, I wanted to further protect my equipment. I already use a sling bag that has a cover and a weatherproof cover for my camera while in extreme Rain or Snow but I wanted to go further to protect the Cameras the my Bag.
Rainproof inserts can be costly so I went to the local Walmart and picked up Duct tape with a pattern and a set of Three Gallon size zip lock style bags from the Dollar tree. ead on and look at the pictures!!!
UPDATE! Survival Pillow Works Great!
1 Roll of Duct Tape ( I used Camo Pattern!)
1 Gallon Size Ziploc Style Bag ( Three in a set for a Dollar at the Dollar tree!)
Total Time to Make:
Dane aka the Wandering Photographer of Norwich Ct.
You will need one bag
Tape Bottom edges up with scotch tape, left side here
Tape both sides ( i only show left side..LOL) Also; I just taped it up to act as a measuring line, cut the bag at the bottom and you will have a strip of plastic to use for other products
Camo Duct Tape! In fact Walmart sells a large variety of Patterned and Colored Tape! We are going to reinforce the Edges so they don't POP in Cold weather.
Here is the cut and shortened bottom end with Duct tape on the Back side, I tried to get the plastic lined up on the tape evenly but it doesnt matter because this step is to reinforce the edges as they can POP in cold weather and we will cover theis with more duct tape larer on.
Now Cut a small incision that ends at the end of the bag (Pic 1) ,
Fold top piece of tape onto bag as shown (Pic 2)
Now do the same for the other side of the bag.
