OverBoard Waterproof Case
Most people carry their phone everywhere with them and some dread having to tuck it away or safeguard it from getting wet. A phone can get wet and eventually malfunction while answering a call in the rain, going for a dip in a pool or the ocean, or just absentmindedly dropping it into a sink or toilet. These things happen and there are few BlackBerry Style cases that can prevent possible phone death. The OverBoard Waterproof case does just that. Regardless of where or when, the case protects your phone from moisture. It is made of 0.42mm of PVC and features a transparent window at the front. It seals the phone securely in and successfully protects it from water. The OverBoard Waterproof case costs $24.95.
