What’s so special about this case?

  • You’ll be able to talk and hear through it without a problem
  • and get great photos and video
  • and your touchscreen will work normally
  • It’s not just 100% waterproof – it’ll protect your phone from dust, dirt and sand too
  • You won’t necessarily have to buy a new one when you upgrade your phone, because it’s a generic rather than a form-fit case (unlike a hard case, it’s not tailored to a specific device).

Anything Else?

  • It comes with a lanyard so you can hang it round your neck
  • It’s securely, submersibly waterproofed thanks to the quick-action AQUACLIP® seal
  • The seams are welded together with high frequency radio waves, creating a super-strong bond
  • The optically-clear LENZFLEX window is UV-stabilized (so it won’t go yellow in the sun)
  • and the case will still be soft and functional in the extreme cold.

Is this the right size for my phone?

  • This case fits iPhone 6 and other phones that are the same size – or smaller
  • Check out the Size Guide at the top of the page. It lists most phones and tells you which Aquapacs fit them best.

This is the maximum size of device that will fit:

What else do I need to know?

  • Some smartphones can be very sticky. If your phone is shiny and sticky, pinch the corner of the case and jiggle it to get your phone in and out.
  • Some phones 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.

Tips for Taking Good Photographs
If you follow a few guidelines there’s no reason why anyone should notice that your photos were taken through a case. It’s a bit like taking a photograph through your window at home. First of all the window needs to be as clean as possible. Even with a clean window you may notice some reflection, but the closer you hold the camera lens to the window, the less the reflection. Similarly our cases give best results with the lens window tight against the camera lens. Try to avoid flash photography but if you do need to use the flash, make sure that the case is tight over the flash so the light doesn’t reflect back into the lens.

Underwater Photography
It takes a bit of practice – and a little luck – to get really good underwater photos. Please don’t think that every shot you take is going to make the cover of SportDiver magazine! You need strong sunshine and clear water. The middle of the day is best, when the sun’s at its highest. Best results will be just below the surface. Light disappears quickly as you go deeper, as do colours (one of the advantages of digital cameras is that you can retouch your photos afterwards to replace colours lost underwater). Flash rarely works underwater. Not because of the Aquapac, but because the flash tends to reflect off particles in the water itself. Even clean water is full of micro-organisms and other particles. The less water between you and your subject, the less difference this will make and therefore the clearer your shots are likely to be. Wide lens and close up is the secret.

Reviews

  1. I have used it on two canoeing trips and a paddle boarding adventure and it has been invaluable for snapping away without the worry of getting it wet.

  2. Use of the touchscreen is unrestricted and a transparent panel at the back means you can still take photos. The phone slides easily inside. It’s guaranteed waterproof for 30min at 10m depth (but will probably hold out for longer).

  3. ideal for protecting your electronics including larger smartphones and most handheld GPS units

  4. I have been through a few different cases for my phone and the Aquapac has been by far the best.

  5. Received it yesterday and went fishing. It’s impressive how responsive the phone is behind the plastic. Pictures are great and video is great.

  6. I have the Small Whanganui case that I use for my Droid Incredible and it is… incredible! Now I want a case for my camera.

  7. It has kept my GPS dry while taking hundreds of dunkings from my windsurfing.

  8. This has got to be one of the coolest products I have seen in a long time. No longer do you have to be worried if you need/want to take your BlackBerry down to the pool, the beach, into the bathroom while taking a bath or with you when you go boating.

  9. We are running a Windsurfing Speed Racing Series this summer. We use a GPS unit to measure the speeds. We also use Aquapac cases to protect the GPS units (There is not such thing as a waterproof GPS unit as we have found out the hard way).
