A note prior to the body of this review: My most sincere apologies to the company for my lack of timeliness in having this review published. A subsequent post to follow will future explain, for those interested in knowing where I’ve been.
For review I was sent the a smartphone pouch, a waterproof pouch to protect your phone from getting wet and damaged. Great for fishing, boating, a day at the beach, torrential downpours, or any other time you don’t want to risk your phone taking an unwanted bath!
I wanted to review this product because I do not currently own any sort of pouch or a case to protect my phone from getting wet when I’m at the beach. This past summer I’d been using a plastic baggie. While that works and you can still use the touchscreen on your phone, it’s not quite the same as having a bag that is thicker and better designed for this purpose. While I don’t do many activities in the winter that require me to use these, I will be very grateful to have them come summertime again. Although I can imagine that they might be useful if you plan on being in really wet snow, or like the go playing on frozen bodies of water where the risk of falling in is present. (Though if you fall in a body of frozen water, your phone getting wet is probably the least of your worries.)
The smart phone pouch itself is a rectangular, transparent, plastic pouch with two large ziploc type closures that is then folded down and velcroed in place. The pouch comes with an attachable cord that is big enough to wear around your neck, if you so choose. The transparency of the pouch allows you to use all the features of your phone (even the camera!) without taking the phone out of the pouch and risking it falling into a watery grave.
Overall, I like this smart phone pouch and will continue to use it whenever I’m playing near the water. As this package came with two pouches and I don’t plan to use mine so often that I’ll need a replacement, I plan to gift the second one to my sister. I would recommend this pouch to anyone who spends time around the water with a smartphone they’re rather not have water damaged.
