So you have your Senz umbrella to protect you from the rain, good !
But what about your phone or tablet, they need to be water protected too! You don’t need to be a trekker, an adventurer to use it … a regular you and me will do.
You can find such waterproof pouches with the British Aquapac or German Ortlieb.
I found the Ortlieb one, I plan to use it when I walk under the rain.
I’m always typing messages on my iPhone/Blackberry while I walk, when it’s rainy I don’t like my phone to get wet.
The Orlieb I found is spacious enough to store my iPhone and Blackberry.
Not only it protecs my phones from the humidity but it also gives you full access to the functions of the phones through its extra thin plastic layer. Just insert your phones and roll up the pouch and the velcro will do the rest. The Aquapac got the Aquaclip® (a patented, ultra-secure, rustproof, injection-moulded plastic seal) opens and closes with a simple twist of two levers which is very convenient, much more than the Ortlieb.
What can you put in such a waterproof pouch ?
- Important papers like passport, maps, money
- Your electronics, choose the right size to fit your phones, tablets, extra batteries, earphones, …
The prices are good and range from 10$ to 40$ for an iPad pouch.
