    I have no idea what you are talking about please explain more

    You can use a "contractor's bag" instead of a regular trash bag. It's about 10 or 15 mils thick and holds up much better than a regular 1 mil trash bag. You can get them at Ace Hardware, Home Depot, and places like that, for about a buck or two a bag. Also, instead of taping the strap, why not staple or rivet it in some way to make it stronger.

    That would make a hole in the bag, and make it rip really easily, it would make it weaker not stronger

    Excuse me I unerstand it is confusing. I'm not exactly sure how to respond to "Huh", but you cut the bag in half then across. So once you have done that you should have a "Bag" sealed on three sides so I guess, fungus amungus, that you start at the bottom. I know that the picts are hard to make out, but it is black bag on black bag so I could not really do much. Thanks for info on spelling, I will do my best. I definetly agree that using something other than tape would be better, but I didn't really have anything else on me.

    nice job but you need to click the reply button if you reply to a comment otherwise the other person won't know you said anything.

    great idea, i just wish i could understand half of it =x

    This looks like a great Instructable but there are some things I found a little bit hard to understand. I think you should make a revised version of this where it has more steps and is explained more, but other than that it looks awesome. Hope you like my idea but its ok if you don't make a revised but i think people will appreciate it.

    Pretty sweet! I used a strip of caution tape for a strap though, it's effing awesome

    Thanx man, and it honestly, once built works well.

    All right. First of all, check your spelling on Step 3's title. Then work on your i's and e's because you keep flipping them. Are you starting from the sealed end or the open end? And after that I don't really know where you're going. Making out all these photos that look the same is difficult.

    This is confusing...
