Dry Case's Waterproof Vacuum Seal keeps your iPhone dry in up to 100 ft of water
By now, we’ve all probably been exposed to some kind of rugged tough case for the iPhone that enables you to use the handset under water, but with most solutions, they’re priced so steeply to make you altogether forget about it.

Well, don’t be too discouraged about it seeing that DryCase is here for the rescue in providing an inexpensive solution that allows you take your favorite gadgets under water. Sure you can go old school and rely on a mere Ziploc bag, but you’re riding on that thin line of danger.

Luckily, the DryCase is vacuum-sealed and allows you to still use touchscreen devices, like the iPhone, in up to 100 feet of water. Additionally, you’re still able to interact with the touchscreen of the iPhone while it’s inside of the case. And with the addition of the optional DryBUDS, which is waterproof as well, you can continue to listen to your favorite tunes while in the water. Unlike some of the rugged tough cases out there in the market, the DryCase is priced at a reasonable $40 and will work with most popular devices out there.

Not convinced yet about its potential? Well, you can check out the video demonstration below at CTIA to see what it’s all about.

If you want a real waterproof case that is also functional, wait until the LifeProof case starts shipping.

This isnt to always be on your phone, it's basically for underwater pictures and videos

If your going to listen to music while scuba diving don't worry about the buds. Sound travels great underwater. Just tie it to your mouthpiece:-)

This would be ten times more useful if it had a little less excess plastic around the edges of the device. Granted, there would be less space left if there was a larger device in it, but that seems like it would be too cumbersome as is. Maybe a small (< 3.5 inches), medium (~3.5 inches), large (4.0 - 4.3 inches) and XL (4.3 - ? inches) sizes?

Having purchased this drycase to protect my iPhone, my case did in fact leak and killed my phone. After following all the instructions water managed to enter through the white valve near the bottom of the case. I have informed the company but they can't be bothered to respond, not even with an apology at the fact I need to find around a few hundred pounds if I want to replace my phone. If you don't want to risk a drowned device and no response from the company then buy a different dry case.
