The "Turn Over" over cover.

Hey guys... I actually made something worth sharing... So... here it is. It is going to be cold soon as fall and winter descend upon us and this just might be what you need to stave off some of the cold. It is my "Turn Over" cover. An inexpensive, under $29, no sew, 15 minute option that is easy to make. Here is a link to the video that I made.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xg6nJQOA75M&t=23s

That's pretty nifty! I am a firm believer that shock cord is a vital DIY supply :) I have found myself using a reflective "survival" tarp, the one with aluminized reflector and waterproof vinyl on each side as an over cover. I will drape that over the ridge line, and use a binder clip, or whatever, to tie it off. I can then slide that back and forth, mainly I'm using it to cover my feet area. I need to have my head out to breath and dissipate condensation.

Thanks for sharing and doing the video!

Take it easy,

I agree with the shock cord thing. It is vital when dealing with moving objects that tear easily. I was looking through my supplies this afternoon and realized that I was completely out of shock cord. Already ordered to replenish my supply. I am glad that you enjoyed the video. I do not do many videos but would love giving them a try with more of them.
