Default Tail bag or similar

Hey all.
I'm after a waterproof bag to bungie strap onto my tail rack.
Any ideas on something cheap?
Just need it for a few night away on the bike here and there.

Double-bag yer gear with two bin bags. After packing, roll it up from the closed end to squeeze out all the air and then bungee onto bike. You won't get cheaper than that.
