I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

Aha. I have adapted the question title that I am specifically looking for special clothing, as opposed to makeshift bags.

I can see your points, but they don't answer my question. Considering that a river is calm enough to ford (which may be only where it spreads to be 200 metre wide), I was specifically asking for something that the cited book calls vädarpåse and it claims is for sale on the market.
