The Overboard Waterproof Case
Where to put my mobile? One of the first questions you ask yourself when packing for your well deserved vacation at the beach. Sunscreen, wetsuit and boards are stored, but where the heck putting the mobile and making sure it won’t suffer any damage from sand and salt water (might as well nightly skinny dipping into the nearby pool)? It’s just not an option to leave the phone in the house. Of course you want to share our holiday experiences with the loved ones at home!
So, that’s why we have tested the Overboard Waterproof Case. It is around for a while already and unlike other case it is not limited to one phone only, you can basically use it for I-Phones all sizes (even if you have already a case on it) as well as Androids. The phone is easily wrapped and the two sliders are sealing the case.
Both back and front are clear plastic that retains the capacity to use the touchscreen and all other buttons are relatively easy to access considered the phone is now in a bag. First step done: The phone is now protected from water, sand and you can still make calls, check your instagram, record videos and whatsoever. (They do allow a small amount of water to get caught in the closure though, so you need to open the cases with caution or you risk dripping water on your phone.)
The bag comes with a lenyard and a small carabiner, so you don’t have to worry about where to put it and still have both hands free for any other activities (such as paddling of course).
As no one would have longer chats with their BFFs while waiting for the next wave we were rather concentrating on taking pictures in the water. As already mentioned the touchscreen and all buttons are easily accessable. due to the big clear plastic cover the picture quality wouldn’t be affected either and we didn’t have any problems with the case misting up inside.
As a result we can recommend this handy case for any outdoor activities as you simply don’t have to worry about the phone getting wet, sandy or dirty and there are no limitations in the usage, see for yourself:
