Default Another drx ve

Well I had to get one of these after trying out gdb's. the first thing I did was put some side guards on it but a lot of crap still got in there. So I went to Walmart an bought a cheap bag an some Velcro. With some help from my wife sewing on the Velcro I got a nice dust cover for under $5. The material is breathable an I haven't had any heat issues with it. Here are some pics

Not a bad idea Mike. Seems fine for dirt and all these fall leaves.

What about wet mud and water my man?

I'm thinking that's where a lexan lid would prolly do a little better job, ya know.

Nice needlework. A bit cheaper than the 'outerwear' brand (is that the brand??), I'm sure

It is actually pretty water proof. I ran it under the faucet an the water just beads off it an the other side was dry. I have got a good bit of mud on it over the past couple days an haven't noticed any getting through it.

What kind of material is it Mike?

I'm not sure what it is, it was a small cheap bag in the arts an crafts section of Walmart. I'll have to see if I still have the part with the tag on it an see what it's made of. I'm really happy with how it works an when I'm done I just rinse it off in the sink an all the mid an junk comes off.

I like it!! For that price, you can make up a bunch of them, and swap them out as they get muddy. Then wash them all when you get home. I see a trip to Hancock Fabrics in my near future
