Water-tight cover for wireless body-packs
« on: July 10, 2018, 05:10:28 pm »

I'm looking for recommendations for water-tight covers for Shure ULXD1 body-packs after a rather sweaty actress apparently almost destroyed the electronics within one of my packs with rivers of sweat.

I already checked out Aquapac's covers but they're too big and don't look very comfortable, and I'm looking for something smaller that can be hidden under clothes (for theatre use on actors).

Thanks!

Unlubricated condoms are the usual theatrical method. 

Some people like to use rubber gloves.

Hahaha first time I'm hearing about it.

But anyway I'm looking for a more professional solution...

These are what I use.  Simple and cheap.  If you need true watertight (i.e. submergable) you’ll need something more substantial, but for sweat this is my go-to.

Actually condoms ARE the professional solution ;)
An alternate product that might work for you is this:
WMB
The company that makes them has a somewhat broken website, but they do have some vids.

It was always an initiation/rite of passage to send the junior audio assistant to the local chemist to purchase boxes of unlubricated condoms.

Many raised eyebrows from the old customers and staff.

TV can be a cruel place.  ;D

This IS the longstanding, decades old, tried and true professional solution. Your dismissal of it is offensive and reveals much about your immaturity and/or dogma inspired choice to be ignorant. Even a  quick & cursory Google search affirms condoms as the overwhelming #1 professional choice.
