- What's Included
The mortal enemy of the Smartphone has always been water. Your iPhone most likely serves as your lifeline to the world and have it in your possession at all times of the day but what happens when you want to go somewhere such as the beach? How about the pool? Or what about boating? The list goes on and on and in all instances a decision must be made to either safely leave your iPhone behind where sand, water and other elements won't hurt it or bring it with and hope nothing happens. Now, with a Waterproof MarineCase from Keystone ECO water, sand, snow and dirt will no longer be a deterrent but instead a welcome friend. Designed to work with the iPhone 5 and 5S this case is IP58 certified to protect against the elements so that lifeline to the world can safely go everywhere you do. For example, take pictures and video while snorkeling and upload them online for everyone to see without even getting out of the water. With this case you can safely bring your iPhone 5 underwater with you up to 20 feet (6 meters) and use it like a professional underwater camera. The case has a clear silicon protective membrane on the front which supports touch screen use, giving the phone full functionality to still text or make calls. Even if the idea of bringing an iPhone underwater makes you tremble the case can still bring peace of mind that your iPhone will be safe when brought around water. By also protecting the phone from sand and dirt, places such as the beach, river or lake are no longer a cell phone danger zone. Also included with the iPhone 5 MarineCase is a neck/wrist strap that attaches to the top of the case for hands-free storage in the water when a pocket or purse isn't an option.

I'll quickly get to the point so you don't have to read more than you want to, it works! I had a chance to sample the TIDE Smartphone Case as well as the ECO MarineCase for the iPhone and in my testing they each worked perfectly. My Smartphone happened to be a little too big for the TIDE and I don't have an iPhone so for testing I used a dollar bill and credit card for each case. In the instructions are directions on how to test the case beforehand to ensure it works. This is critical because it'll let you know ahead of time if the case is working correctly or if it is defective. Make sure to do this. I submerged the case in a bucket of water for a few minutes and then let it float in the water for about 20. Upon completion all the contents inside were dry with no traces of water seeping in. In a separate test borrowing another person's phone I had a chance to see how well the silicon cover integrates with touch-screen. It worked perfectly just as if there was no case at all so users will not have to sacrifice the ability to use the phone while in the case. Though made for use with Smartphone's I see lots of other uses outside of that which would give it use year round in lots of various settings.

Review of 47209BK
I bought this product because I was going on a snorkel excursion in Cozumel. I spent most of the time in the water trying to get this to work. It did keep my phone dry and it did work occasionally. However, most of the time the rubber bladder on the front seemed to stick to my screen which made the phone unusable. I was able to shake the phone which worked sometimes so it would take the picture. The pictures came out pretty good considering this was only $50. This is a very cool idea but technically it really doesn't work well.
