Waterproof phone cases have gotten very good and much less bulky over time, but they’re a pain to install, especially if you want to take them on and off regularly, and they’re also expensive. Waterproof phone pouches, which tens of thousands of our readers have purchased, are much cheaper while sacrificing some security, and also a pain to seal. Magnets to the rescue.
We saw two brands of waterproof magnetic phone pouches at Outdoor Retailer this year- Lewis N. Clark and Gogobag, and went home with a sample from the former. Since the bags close themselves, pulling your phone in and out is fast and easy, and both companies boast protection to at least 100 foot depths, and make the bags available in multiple sizes.
