Does this really work? 30 meters, really? Any other product thats tested to work? What about igills? You don't want your expensive iPhone to get killed under water.
I mainly used it to protect my phone from saltair and water when fishing. I fish every week. Went through 3 of them in the last couple of years. One of them the wire connection failed and the other two began to leak and lose the vacuum. The last one the welded seam on the top of the case came apart. (I don't hang it from my neck but put it in my fanny pack. so there is not much wear and tear and banging around - but they still fail). The good thing is that the company replaced the first two because they failed within a year.
When it works, it's great, but when it fails just hope you are not underwater.......
I had my doubts about this product, but I have to say I am extremely impressed and highly recommend it. I work salvage and watercraft maintenance in the harbors of Chicago for 6 months out of the year. I can honestly say it has accompanied me on over 100 dives and I have not had one leak; each case comes sealed with a signature that it had passed a pressure test of 130 feet. There are, however, several things to be mindful of.
First, make sure to pressure test your case before each dive (as explained in the instructions you will receive). It's easy, doesn't take long, and ensures your case will remain waterproof throughout your dive.
Second, realize that the way touchscreen phones are designed, they cannot be used underwater so you will be unable to take still photos underwater; you will have to start your video or select your playlist before you fully submerge.
You also need to be mindful that the deeper you descend, the pressure exerted on your device will increase extremely quick. It does not take long for the pressure to start pressing your center button and interrupt whatever you're doing. However, I found that a simple hardware washer placed over your center button solves this problem completely.
Finally, be mindful of the water temperature you're diving in. I don't really feel comfortable diving in water less than 50 Deg F simply because it's bad for the phone. If you plan on diving in colder water, consider buying a cheap MP3 player to use in the case-it works just fine.
***One thing I do suggest either way is to buy moisture-absorbing tabs to toss in with your phone. Leisurepro-along with most dive shops-sell them extremely cheap and they prevent your phone from collecting any moisture-especially humidity that can collect in the bag in warmer weather.
Good for keeping your iPhone dry "ON" the boat or around the pool/beach. That is where I would stop. This case failed after about three months. And that was with very light / minimal use. I would not recommend this product.
I have used it a few times not that deep but so far it is flawless. Great purchase. Just need waterproof headphones now.
