Gear: #27 No Sew Tyvek Windshirt / Rain Jacket

In this gear video, I show how to make a Windshirt/ Rain Jacket out of a set of Tyvek coveralls. This project is quite easy and fairly cheap. The materials needed are a Tyvek Coverall, Tyvek Tape and scissors. I spruced it up with a shockcord hood and some cordlocks. I will do another video with dyeing and how to make the chaps.

Tyvek Coveralls - This is the XL. Make sure to get the TY127S in your size.
