Aqua Box.... Anyone have one?

I just bought two for the iPhones when traveling in the dink


Aqua Box - Waterproof protection for your mobile smart device

Hope I didn't just waste $60!

For the money you spent you could have gotten a plastic sextant that didn't need one.

zip-lock sandwich bags work too, but not as durable.

I've been using ziplocs for years, but they're not nearly as cool!

I must erase the mental image of you walking around with three ziplocks over your head.

Putting a paper towel or cloth between two of the ziplocks can help pick up any water that might otherwise trickle through.

Sorry, Its a design feature of we older folks.

I also had a glass jar that was a dehumififier. Beware of those new hearing aids that are placed inside of your ear. They must be replace every two weeks by your audio hearing aid office, to change the batteries, you don't by them, you lease them for $1500 each for a year.
