Paddleguy.com driPhone review video
Keeping your phone safe and accessible while out kayaking is super important these days especially as, for many, this is the only form of communication they take out with them on a trip. Over the last 2 years I have only taken my iCom handhled VHF as I have been looking for a good quality dry bag for my iPhone. My needs are something 100% waterproof, durable and offerring full functionality of the phone while inside the dry bag… enter the driPhone..
I have seen a few on the market but none have offered the durability and usability of this great little product from Hamilton based NZ company driPhone … I met company owner and founder Hayden Crowther at the recent Hutchwilco boat show where he was offering the current model as seen in this review for a fantastic price of $89..reduced from $120.. this is the price you can currently get from his website as they are clearing out this model to make way for the new driPhone Elite series which is suited to the iPhone 4. As I own an iPhone3 the current model is perfect for me..and will suit most android phones too.
I have used it on a couple of trips now an as you can see from the short video above and images posted here the driPhone is what it says it is..I can use all functions of the phone thanks to the silicone membrane over the touch screen… I can receive and make calls without myself or the person on the other end finding it hard to hear … it is definatly waterproof and with the addition of one of my key ring floats it is safe should I drop it when not around my neck… fantastic value for money…I highly recommend you use the link below to go to the driPhone website and purchase one for yourself..
