This is a dark cloth the little woman made for me. This is made with a light weight gortex material. It is white on one side and black on the other. She then lined it with black china silk. It is around the 14x14 tailboard wet-plate camera in the photo. I'm still not sure about the black china silk it is quite slippery. When she asked how I liked it the first time I used it, I replied..."well its kind of like wearing your panties on my head dear." It actually works very well and it has already saved the camera from a rain storm...very waterproof. It fits my 8x20 and 12x20 film cameras and just by chance it fit the 14x14 tailboard as well. She added elastic at the top with velcro closures at the bottom and a couple of pockets that weights can be put in at the bottom on windy days. Actually it is a little off white more like a very light gray.
