LifeProof FRĒ Series Waterproof Phone Case

When new, the case offers admirable protection. Unfortunately, the case suffers from premature wear and allows debris/dust to collect between the screen and screen protector. I purchased this case at clearance for about $50 for my iPhone6+ around the time the iPhone 7 was released after previously using a LifeProof NÜD case with the same phone. The Nud did not adequately prevent bending of the phone resulting in "touch disease" (search it) and also blocked touch access to the edges of the screen. Full review

LifeProof FRĒ Series Waterproof Phone Case

This slim profile case protected my phone admirably, the waterproofing especially held up well, even while kayaking. Regrettably, after one year the case "bowed" and the control buttons for volume, on/off and Bixby no longer work as they don't match up with the phone's buttons. For this reason, I don't recommend buying this case. For the first year I've owned this case, it's performed admirably for my activities: daily work commute, hiking and kayaking. And the sound quality for the speaker and… Full review

LifeProof NÜÜD Series Waterproof Phone Case

Plain and simple: this thing works. My phone survived days-long exposure to heavy rain with no damage whatsoever. Very simply, it seems to work as advertised. For two years or so, my general impression was that it was simply functional and practical. It provides solid protection from drops, dust, and moisture with a less bulky profile than either LifeProof's larger cases or waterproof cases from some competitors because instead of covering the screen, it seals the rest of the case around it with… Full review

Pelican 1040 Micro Case

A very durable small package case to carry money, keys, wallet, identification, licences, medication, etc. Including a great case for a mini first aid case. Locks shut tight, no water, dirt, or dust intrusion, keeps everything clean and dry... Always. As an avid outdoorsman in all weather and nature conditions, I play with land, water conditions all the time. If I'm not on the water paddling a lake or stream, then I'm on the trails backpacking or riding my ATV getting muddy or dusty. But no matter,… Full review

OtterBox 1000

The Otter Box is a low-cost investment that protects high-cost electronic devices and other important items that need to stay dry. This reviewer's first-hand account speaks to the value of owning and using the Otter Box 1000 in the outdoors. 5 STARS for durability and reliability. 3 STARS for recent business decisions (see final section of this review). Picture this true-life scenario... I had just spent several minutes carefully climbing a 50' high pile of breakdown in a Tennessee cave. At the… Full review

LifeProof Original iPhone Waterproof Case

Great for outdoorsy people who might get their phone wet. It's a waterproof case that is easy for hiking, fishing, and being out on the river or out on the boat! The phone's case is a great improvement to your investments. It protects your phone from dirt, dust, debris, and most of all water! It makes it great for taking it out on your boat or kayak to take pictures of the catch of the day without the fear of ruining your phone. I would highly recommend the Lifeproof case to anyone with an iPhone… Full review

LifeProof Original iPhone Waterproof Case

This case is a tough nut to crack! Like the old Timex — "it takes a licking and keeps on ticking!" I bought this case with the expectation to have the phone live life to my fullest. And it has! Using the Lifeproof case is a easy as using the phone sans a cover. The levers and buttons work with perfect ease.  The touchscreen is perfect. Even with the cover, because the camera lens covers are glass, pictures and video are not affected in quality.  Like I said, I have lived life with my phone on… Full review

Outdoor Products Watertight Box

This watertight box has served me well! It is a simple, waterproof box that is great for keeping small electronics or paper products dry on the river, canoeing, rafting, or anywhere that there will be water. There is not too much to say about this product because it is so simple. However, I will say that I have had it for quite a while and have taken it canoeing and rafting a lot and it has held up wonderfully. It has been dropped on hard surfaces and slung against rocks and it has still not failed… Full review

But Pelican also makes a series of smaller cases that are ideal for carrying items like cell phones, car keys, point and shoot cameras, your wallet, spare batteries, memory cards or anything else thats small.  Just like the bigger Pelican… Full review
