What else do I need to know?

  • You can get great video with your front-facing camera. There is no lens window on the back of this case, so you cannot use a rear-facing/iSight camera. Sorry!
  • Some smartphones can be very sticky. Pinch the case by a corner and jiggle it to get a very sticky phone in and out.
  • Some devices will float in this case and some won’t – make sure you test yours in a basin before you launch it into the sea!
  • Capacitive touchscreens don’t work underwater, the water breaks the circuit. But you can use the volume buttons to operate your camera underwater.
  • Fingerprint recognition such as Apple’s Touch ID won’t work through the Aquapac – you will have to enter your passcode.
  • Some phones have rather sharp edges. We recommend use of a thin bumper case which will protect both phone and case.
  • We offer a wide range of different phone cases. Click here to see the complete collection.

Additional information

Care Instructions

Warning
Our warranty covers this Aquapac only, and not any items you may put inside it. We recommend that you insure the contents separately.

Waterproofness
Our range has been independently tested to international waterproofing standards. However, the waterproofness of your Aquapac depends on your closing and opening it carefully, and on it not being damaged either before or during use. Please follow all instructions carefully.

Before Every Use
Seal something worthless inside, then submerge in a basin to check the waterproofness.

Closing the Case
Make sure that all parts are properly attached. Wipe away any grit or sand, which could hamper the seal. Always turn the levers as far as they will go. They should lock smoothly, if not there may be something impeding the seal.

Opening the Case
Never open your Aquapac in or under water. In order to stop any water getting in when you are opening it, first shake off any water then dry with a towel. Hold the case with the opening at the bottom as you open it.

Ongoing Care
Our materials are strong but can still be punctured. Avoid sharp or abrasive objects and protect from impacts. After regular contact with chlorinated or salt water, or with sun creams, wash in soapy water and then rinse with fresh water. Do not use bleach, alcohol or proprietary cleaners.

Materials
Aquapacs are made from a variety of materials, mostly plastics which make them rustproof. These include TPU, ABS, nylon and polypropylene.

Extreme Temperatures
Although the case material has been UV-stabilized – which means that the plastic shouldn’t be discoloured or broken down by sunlight – the Aquapac won’t protect anything inside it from heat or sunlight. The soft case material is functional and flexible in air temperatures -40ºC to +60ºC (-40ºF to +140ºF), and water temperatures up to +40ºC (+100ºF).

Humidity and Condensation
In humid climates there will be moisture in the air sealed inside the case. Desiccant sachets will absorb the moisture, keeping the contents completely dry. We recommend use of desiccant sachets in all Aquapacs in humid climates. You can purchase spare sachets – see Accessories.

Warning
This is not a toy. It may contain small parts which may be a choking hazard to children under 3. Keep small parts away from children.

Reviews

  1. This strong adjustable armband will keep your iPhone clean and dry and you can still use the touchscreen through the plastic shield.

  2. I got my ArmPac this morning and took it out for a surf straight away. Just wanted to say I’m really pleased with it! Holds my inhaler and car keys and I completely forgot I was even wearing it. Been looking for something like this so I can take my inhaler out with me and this is by far the best thing I’ve found. Brilliant piece of kit! Thanks!

  3. Just to say how wonderful the Aquapac phone bag was. My 16yr old son dropped his Blackberry (in the Aquapac bag) into the river Kennet in Theale whilst kayaking last October. Three months later after New Year he had a phone call from a man in Caversham who had been fishing and caught the bag and phone with his fishing rod, it was fully sealed. We collected the bag/phone which had a few bumps and a little dirty but bag and phone in full working order. My son thought the phone had gone forever but three months later and approx six miles of tributaries along the river, he has the phone and is still using it! What a FANTASTIC product. It kept the phone dry despite the temperature and currents of the river during the winter months. An ABSOLUTE MUST for anything that needs to be kept waterproof as it really works. Thanks for a great product.
