We made camp on a rocky shelf, completely exposed to the elements but with a gorgeous view of the wooded valley. It was summer, what was the worst that could happen? The tent was halfway up when a huge rainstorm broke open. A torrent of water. No way to get the fly up in time. We had stashed our gear, including phones and camera in the tent. When the rain subsided, our phones lay in a puddle of water. Trashed of course. Luckily, this was not a life or death deal, I knew where we were, and no one was hurt.
Since that day, I’ve brought a waterproof phone case with me. Not one of those otterboxes, which add more to durability than waterproofery, but a real dry bag kinda situation. The kind where I could get caught in a nasty storm and not have to worry about blowing up an expensive device. The kind where I could flip a canoe in 35 degree weather like I did a few months ago, plunging into a very cold river, phone in pocket. Emerging, soaking wet, and not worry about if your phone is shot is a nice feeling. Made the cold water just a bit warmer.
SealLine’s E-Case fits most phones. Here’s the inner dimensions, so you can see if your phone fits: 3.5” x 6”. If your phone is smaller than that, it’s perfect. The E-Case has SealLine’s highest waterproof rating, which is great for "oh shit!" moments like falling into a river, getting caught in a huge storm, or leaving your phone out overnight by the camp fire.
Simple ‘giant ziplock’ closure.
You can use the phone in the case. Of course it’s not as user friendly, but the touch screen still works.
