You’re the outdoorsy type and tend to get your electronic gear in places it shouldn’t go: you could just toss it in a Ziplock bag. Or you could get a fancier type of plastic bag to put it in. The BubbleShield is just that, a double-zipper bag with a hook. The hook is there for easy transport, while the pattern at the back is interrupted in the general vicinity of the iPhone’s camera, allowing you to still take shots with it. And while it’s clearly aimed at iPhone owners, this would work with any phone, really. It’s rated at a IPX5 waterproofing specification, which means:
Protected against water jets – Water projected at all angles through a 6.3mm nozzle at a flow rate of 12.5 liters/min at a pressure of 30kN/m2 for 3 minutes from a distance of 3 meters.
So no submersion but decent protection.
However given that it’s $20 for a pack of 5… maybe double that Ziplock bag and call it a day?
