Hi Jan - I used the baggies at the last Denver AIS convention
where it alternately snowed and rained. I was sick of having wet
feet all day in the tour gardens. The only problem was (outside
of looking like a bag lady) that they tended to rip after about
an hour or two. But they worked...sort of.

I agree that is sounds good. I am going to get some cheap shower
caps and throw them into my suitcase for the Sib/species
convention in Canada in June. (won't be at the AIS convention in
VA :-(

Thanks for the hint,
