Gear Review: Seattle Sports DryDoc Waterproof DigiCase

At first glance, the task of protecting a smartphone in the outdoors seems pretty straightforward. Simply toss it in a zip close sandwich bag and hit the trail. But the reality is a little more complicated.

Plastic bags aren’t made for the rigors of the outdoors – think tears, holes, and other failures – and their flimsy construction generally means they need to be replaced after every few outings, which doesn’t make them terribly “green” either. While effective in a pinch, most plastic bags simply aren’t a realistic long-term solution for active users.

Enter the Dry Doc line of waterproof outdoor cases from Seattle Sports. Made from a burly, PVC-free plastic that’s tear and puncture resistant, these zip close cases are available in a wide range of sizes, don’t add a lot of bulk to your pack and are easy to clean and reuse.

And, as advertised, the phone-sized cases really do allow you to use you phone while it’s protected inside.
