The folks over at HDSLR now just shared what might be the easiest rain camera rain jacket ever.
It’s easy because it doesn’t use anything but a Gore-Tex sheet and a pair of rubber bands.
Gore-Tex is a brand name for a water proof material, and if you ever wore hiking shoes your feet may already be familiar with it. The thing is that carrying a sheet of a water proof material is awesome not only for covering your camera in the rain.
I’ve used similar stuff for protecting my knees in a muddy location when shooting kneeling; keeping my stuff clean while putting it on the ground; and simply putting my bag on it. It is almost like Gaff tape’s big brother when it comes to home may things you can do with it.
You can get Gore-Tex by the meter quite cheap on eBay or at your local fabric store.

P.S. If you want something a little more fancified, try adding a CD case to the mix.
