I was pretty excited when I found a waterproof case that would actually fit my android phone into it. Before I got this case, I had a SealLine product that was very similar. The only problem was, with my new phone, it was too small. It was definitely too small once I put a commuter Otterbox on my phone.
This case, however, fits my phone with the Otterbox easily. And there is still room left for me to put a card, my ID and some cash in there (which is what I do when I go for long bike rides). The touch screen of my phone is very much still functional through the case, which is great for when I go mountaineering, since I use my phone as my camera and I don't like the idea of dropping my phone unprotected into the snow.
This product works.
I use this to carry my Android which I use as a GPS on weekend hikes. I have it secured across the top of my daypack by the handy eyelets at the top and two 18" Nite Ize gear ties attached to my pack. The velcro seam at the bottom is very secure while still allowing easy access, and since it is at the bottom of the pouch, the contents stay dry inside. I would give it five stars except the plastic leaves a foglike residue on the glass of my phone which wipes away easily. I've experience this with other plastic pouches and the first person who comes up with a nonfogging version gets five stars from me.
got this to protect my cell while hiking, biking, on the motorcycle, and anything i do in the great northwest...
i use it mainly at work. being a landscaper in the bham area, i have killed a couple cells from the rain. even with rain gear, you get soaked some days anyway, but cell stays dry now...well built, cuz i use it everyday and have no choice but to put it in the worst-case rain, mud, dirt, dust, ice, snow, fertilizer, chemicals, grease, gas. everything...however, i know it won't last forever, but i sure have got my money worth out of it in a few months...
The case is great for water activities
I firts used the case to bring my smartphone to a boat trip at Ribera Maya, it was great, we swam through crystal clear channed connecting lagoons and the ocean and I was able to swim and take pictures with my phone. If even float in a vertical position so the phone will not go to the bottom.
The touch screen works great and the pictures look great.
My kids try at the pool and they said the screen gets confused if you bring it to 3 or more feet underwater, because of the pressure of course.
Keeps it dry!!
I have used this case many times out on the lake and river to house my iPhone 4s. It does a great job at keeping the water away from anything you store within this pouch. When used with an iPhone, or any smartphone for that matter, you are able to access the device through the plastic membrane. As a bonus you can also use your devices camera through the membrane and the shots actually come out pretty clear. One note of caution...this will not fit a phone larger tan an iPhone 4s, otherwise a great case.
