Swimming, Boating, Beaching, Beyond: Drycase Keeps Your Android Dry And Usable [VIDEO]


If I could travel back in time, I would travel to early December 2010 and order a bunch of Drycase pouches for my family. If you’re someone who likes to hit the beach, go to the pool, sail or motor a boat, go WaveRunning, or enjoy any activity that could cause water Damage to you Android (or any device for that matter) you’ll want to watch this:

Pretty awesome, innovative and effective if you ask me. I’m ALWAYS nervous to pull my phone out anywhere where there’s a remote chance it might get messed up. With DryCase not only can you bring it on the boat or to the beach or pool, but you can USE the device while it’s securely vacuum sealed. One step further: maybe find an exercise monitoring app, strap the Drycase Armband on, and record your swimming laps/workout?

Now that I’m thinking about it, this could work for skiing and snowboarding too. Oh yeah, and they make various sizes so you could use it for your Galaxy Tab, XOOM or iPad. There really are a whole lot of options. The only downfall I can safely see is bringing this to a pool party severely increases your chances of getting thrown in the pool. But maybe you want to take it for a swim anyways.

If you’re the type that likes to splash in the water, they’ve got pretty good deals on the phone drycase and the tablet drycase over at Amazon. Both are under $50 and they’ll save you from breaking your device and having to buy a new one- worth it in my book.

  1. That’s not right Rob… I saw no girls in a bikini in the video….

  2. I use a ziploc if I’m going to be at the beach or anywhere wet. Works fine. Not waterproof to any depth or for long but good enough for casual use.

  3. I DEMAND the picture of the girl!

    you can’t just trick us to watching it cause the screenshot shows a sexy babe, come one rob, you have to give us a full demo of her in her bikini swimming around getting all wet and stuff

  5. oh well then the manufacturers are off the hook. why require them to make sturdy phones when we can just put them in space bags and strap them to our arms..

    i’ll pass on this. i want an actual waterproof phone.

  6. …….or buy a Motorola Defy

    I’m not much into beach sports, but I’ve utilized the waterproof capability through washing it after spilling some goo on it.

  7. I’m not sure I want it to sink when submerged…

  8. @michael he said it didn’t sink, he said “it is boyant with the armband” meaning…. the armband makes it FLOAT, not sink

  9. I agree buy a Motorola DEFY check out this video of mine in my fish tank.

  10. lmao i so just clicked on this, not so i can read the story but to see the pervy comments haha :)

    Good laugh!

  11. Save a few bucks and use Ziploc bags, if you’re nervous of using them put your phone inside a bag, seal it, then put that inside another bag and zip that too. Costs 5cents and is good for dust and sand as well as water to swimming pool depths. The big freezer ones work for Nooks, Kindles and Tablets too.

  12. yeah. i take my droid in the shower with a ziploc bag. haha. i play my music, reply back to text messages, answer calls, and most importantly.. check the time!

  13. I totally would use this in the shower. I already have diving headphones that are waterproof to use w/ it. :D

  14. @joedon3 and @AndroidToy the girl is on the website

    Looks like a neat idea for beach activities. Not sure why people want a phone in the shower though. I prefer the time to wash and have a break from telecoms for a bit.

  15. I like the pic more than the video or post. But is the video of a girl or boy :)


  16. aqua pacs have been around for years. only new thing with this one is the vaccuum pump.

    One pac i had made the phone really hot while boating. 120 F!

  17. Yea i agree……the feature pic is the only reason i clicked……you fooled me….who cares about a drypack witout a bikin clad girl

  18. Vanns (A Montana retailer) has them available online for a few bucks less and with free shipping.

  19. lol how many people got tricked by the damn picture…

  20. Perfect for kiteboarding… I am going to wait to see some reviews though to see how well and how long these things hold up with crashes and hard hits to the water!

  21. Sure a ziplockbag works… but this allows you to actually use/listen to the device. For people that are into boating, spending time on the beach, etc. frequently, I don’t see how a ziplock bag would compare. This also isn’t too device specific, so it should, in theory, be around for your next smartphone, and the one after that, etc. Considering how much people readily spend on some cases, I don’t see this as too bad a deal.

  22. @ swampfox
    I would be more worried about the phone than the case. I am willing to bet that the case will have no damage to it. But crashing into water full force can be like crashing onto dry land (as I am sure you know). Any arm band has the risk of allowing the screen to break, crack, etc. if falling straight onto it.

  23. You teasing b*stard….
