I should have said the case was a aqua as on monster stuff sh from gumtree the cable was a USB to dock cable the dog had chewed through. Maplin provided a USB to 12v adaptor 6 can wire perm to consul on rib wired in via fused panel

Ordered case and it arrived, as did the bill! Including their cheapest postal rate and import duty you are looking at 102. It's a lovely case and well made but unless they sort out a European distributor and lower postage, sales here will be dire which is a shame.

I'll post a few pics and let people know how it goes, this case does not float, theres an extra "case" for that if you need it. I'll follow up what they intend on doing about brininging the cost down for the UK market, Ribnetters clearly being a good target market. Couldn't possibly comment on ragflappers or G&T 2 mile tourists though.

Which one did you get?
I have now bought the Lifeproof from the USA been using it since new year very happy with it, it still dose everything it should & is water proof shock proof (but dose not float!)
One problem is my youngest daughter borrowing it to watch TV in the bath!!!
Cost under 64 delivered from the US.

iPhone 4 case, iPhone Case, Waterproof iPhone Case, Protective Case | LifeProof

The lifeproof case is now available from OutdoorsGB;

Lifeproof at OutdoorsGB

Postage and import duty can virtually double the cost of the case, whilst OutdoorsGB dont have the full range of products that Lifeproof sell they'd be a good place to start if you need other bits.

So far it's been a good case, had some good drops not had to test it in anger for waterproofness.

I have the otterbox and it is working quite fine for me. I have had a lot adventurous tours out there but i am never worried about my gadgets as it is pretty safe inside it.
