  • MMi at Macworld: DryCASE Keeps Your iPhone Dry at the Beach

    Going to the beach with electronics can be a nerve-racking experience, trying to keep sand and water off of your expensive gear. Most of the time, itís easier to just leave your devices at home, rather than risk them getting wet. But what about your precious iPhone? You canít very well leave it at home and leaving it on a crowded beach unprotected, isnít a great idea either. Well now you can keep your iPhone or iPod Touch with you at all times, including when you go into the water. Simply put it into a waterproof DryCASE ($39.99).

    ďThe DryCASE is a flexible, crystal clear waterproof bag that allows complete use of your phone or camera while keeping it dry and clean.Ē The great thing about this case is the fact that you can still use your iPhone while itís in the case and it even has a headphone jack so you can still listen to music. DryCASE also sells waterproof headphones so if you feel like taking a swim, you can listen to your favorite songs while you do. The case comes with an armband and a sports belt is available as well. DryCASE is also available for the iPad ($59.95).

    The DryCASE is waterproof up to 100 feet. Iím not sure Iíd want to go scuba diving with my iPhone in one of these cases, but I would go Snorkeling with one. I donít go snorkeling as much as Iíd like to, but the next time I do, Iíll be protecting my iPhone with a DryCASE.

      Not too good after about 10 feet with a nokia, and five feet w/ iphone 3, 3g, and 4. I had an old Siemens phone that had reception at about 10 feet, but that is about it. (yes, close to a tower)
      Always double zip locked and taped. The old nokia 6250 is good to 1 atm. But you are not supposed to send text messages with it under water ?!?

      Zip loc bags are not completely airtight so what makes you guys think they will be watertight?

      This is probably only useful for the water protection otherwise simply keeping it wrapped up in a towel or something is sufficient to keep sand off of it.

      For 40 bucks though I'd have to be spending a lot of time near water.

      If you DO dive alot, a hard case is your best friend. this is mostly to keep splash water off your phone while boating and hanging by the H2O.
