Summary

Great little pouch for protecting your cellphone or GPS unit.

Pros

  • Simple to use
  • Unique latch system ensures watertight seal

Cons

  • None

I bought this item to use on my overnight canoe trip down the Delaware River this past spring. I wanted to protect my phone but still have it accessible to take photos or to check the GPS.  

It worked perfectly! I used the lanyard and clipped the pouch to the front of my PFD. I was able to use the touch screen through the clear plastic front and I even could take pictures with my phone still inside the pouch. I have a  MotoX and use a simple case for it so even with the case on I could still fit the phone easily inside the pouch.  

The interesting system for sealing the pouch worked perfectly. You have this hard plastic clip and that pinches closed the pouch. Then you have two little turn buttons that seal the plastic clip closed. It was simple and foolproof.  

My only complaint (if you can call it that) is that the material of the pouch and the phone case liked each other very much and it was a little 'sticky' to get the phone into the pouch. But with a little shaking the phone settled in nicely and I could close the pouch.  

Great product, love it and would recommend it to anyone who is doing water sports.

Thanks for the review, Greg. I'm going to the Boundary Waters in September, and I'm considering something like this.
