|Dry Bag for your Cell Phone, Dry Doc Digi Case|
|Wednesday, 15 September 2010 09:39|
Zip your cell phone into the Digi Case dry bag, then strap it in place, and it'll be safe and waterproofed.
If you need a dry bag for your cell phone, camera, or Kindle, the Dry Doc Digi Case (made by Seattle Sports Co), is one you’ll want to look at. They sent me one designed for a Blackberry or similar device to try out, and I thought it rated some attention.
Like most of the other protective dry bags you’ll find on the market, these are essentially beefed-up, glorified plastic zipper-locking bags. The plastic’s plenty thick and the zipper lock is plenty tight. But the Digi Case gets an edge over similar products, because it has a built-in bungee strap that solidly clips shut. I count this a big bonus, because it allowed me to clip my phone at the helm in numerous places. I could wrap the strap around the T-top pipework, clip it over the leaning post arm rest, and attach it to my chartplotter’s gimbal mount. The ability to lock it down gave my phone an added layer of protection – not only was it safe from water damage while encased in the bag, but it couldn’t break free and take a fall. And if I were fishing from a kayak or canoe, I could have strapped it right around my arm.
Different sized Digi Cases are available from Dry Doc, including a large version that fits a Kindle; that one should come in handy for reading at anchor, safe Kindle stowage, and the like. The Blackberry cell phone sized dry Digi Case bag goes for $9.95, on Seattle Sports Co’s web site. Check it out at http://www.seattlesportsco.com/productcart/pc/viewCategories.asp?idCategory=104.
