Waterproof phone cases

I picked up a waterproof case for my iPhone at the boat show yesterday, and it looks like a good alternative to an Aquapac.

It's from Over Board. The idea is similar to an Aquapac, except they have their own "slide seal" system which is less fiddly.

They are generally cheaper than the competition, and at a show price of 10 I reckon it's a bargain. Hardly worth buying freezer bags at that price!

I brought one of the 10 Overboard cases for my Samsung S8000 at the show today.

Great piece of kit, but a bugger to get the phone in and out of as the plastic sticks to the phone as you try to get it in and out.
