I don't know how many times I can annoyingly remind you that I'm heading to Iceland in less than a month, but I'm doing it again. The main point I've read again and again regarding Iceland's weather is that it's completely unpredictable. I've also read that the locals say that if you don't like the weather, you can just wait fifteen minutes.
Because there is a v. good chance that we'll be caught in some sort of precipitation (likely rain in early November, there is a potential for snow but v. unlikely), I thought I should buy some sort of weather protection for my camera. I was browsing on Amazon but everything looked kind of crappy, reviews in general weren't that stellar, and I didn't want to pay for something that looked crappy with bad reviews. Since the rain covers just looked like plastic bags anyway, I decided to make my own.
I was inspired by the rain covers that had openings for your hands too, so I decided to go beyond the dozens of tutorials out there that just require a singular hole in the bag.

2 x sandwich or one quart ziptop bags

I love this DIY because it's so easy and cheap. If you buy a rain cover, it's around $10 to $15 for a set of two. My set of two probably comes in at less than $1. And sure I had to make it myself, but I didn't have to wait for shipping. And if it breaks, I can easily make another one.
