Ugo Dry Bag // $149.00
With all the boating apps incorporated into our everyday marine lives, we may need to have a completely waterproof life jacket to keep our precious smartphones and personal items safe, afloat, and accessible. Ugo’s 100% waterproof Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) material and new-age zipper technology comes together in this waterproof-rated, compact dry bag for an overall safe, snug, and most importantly, dry smartphone solution on rough seas.
The external zipper uses TIZIP® technology similar to those found on dry suits and hazmat suits. According to the manufacturer, the Ugo zippers are tested to handle up to 10,000 zipper pulls, which sounds pretty durable to us.
Unzip the dry bag to find dedicated sections for your keys, chapstick, and three to six credit card holders depending on your preferred style, with an additional inside zipper pocket commonly used for cash or medication.
Boating is a given, but also consider taking it kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, or paddle boarding and submerging it underwater for some killer photos below the surface. The case also allows smartphone use while enclosed in the dry bag so you can talk, text, take a selfie, or film a video, no matter the adventure. Some of the models feature a handy metal ring that can be affixed to a lifejacket, belt, or whatever is most convenient for the user.
If the turbulent waters push your Ugo phone case 15’ below the surface, the airtight design should ensure a dry return to the surface. The case also functions in temperatures ranging between negative 20 and plus 120 degrees Farenheit, not a problem for sea level in the Pacific Northwest.
The Ugo dry bag comes in five colors—the classic black/green as well as blue/green, black/black, /orange/black, and camo/orange, and fits all smartphone models. Ugo dry bags can be purchased online from $149.00 at ugowear.com.
