Gadget review: waterproof iPhone case: brilliant piece of kit, £17
When wading a salmon river, shooting game or the rapids, racing a yacht or riding a race, hunting, skiing, farming, working dogs, walking in the countryside or snorkelling in the Maldives, the waterproof Aquapac case means you can keep your phone with you—totally dry, safe and fully operational. The great thing is that everything works normally through the soft, high-tensile TPU case, including capacitive touchscreens, so you can surf the web, use the camera or video, and make and receive phone calls: you can talk and hear without a problem.
The case remains 100% watertight at up to 10 metres (30ft) deep—it is so tough your phone can survive a carwash or a washing machine—and if you drop your phone in water it floats—just leave extra air in the case at the start. It also works in dust, dirt, snow, sand, oil and whatever else you could accidentally throw at your device. The Aquapac is simplicity itself to use: the Aquaclip which does the work is a patented, ultra-secure, rustproof, injection-moulded plastic seal which opens and closes with a twist of two levers, and everything stays in one piece even when open. It comes with an adjustable lanyard, so you can wear it round your neck.
