UPDATE: Since we first wrote this post ins 2012, Photojojo discontinued selling the drisuit Underwater iPhone case. The good news is that Amazon.com still does. Even better, they sell the drisuit Underwater iPhone case for new iPhones as well, including the 5 and 5S (It looks like the company hasn’t released an iPhone 6 case). We’ve updated the links in this post. =M=
We love Photojojo.
Just in time for summertime tubin’, swimming and snorkeling, Photojojo’s newest iPhone product is the driSuit Case for iPhone. It’s a 100% waterproof case that’ll let you take your iPhone down to 15 feet underwater. Read past the jump for more info, photos, and a link to order one.
According to Photojojo, the case latches shut to create a liquid airtight barrier that keeps your iPhone safe underwater. Each case is factory tested to make sure it’s totally safe.
Unlike other waterproof cases that have hard screen covers that don’t work well when wet, this case has a touch-sensitive gel screen cover for better sensitivity when shooting photos underwater.
The back panel features an optical-grade lens cover to preserve the clarity and quality of your shots.
The case itself is cushioned, adding protection for your iPhone from drops and bumps. It also has a waterproof headphone jack — not very useful for listening to music underwater, but at least you won’t have to remove your iPhone from the case to listen to tunes while drying out on the beach.
If your lifestyle includes pools, beaches, snorkels or other watersports, this looks like a great case to own.
The driSuit is shipping now and is
$60.00 from Photojojo about $30 or less from Amazon.com. Currently, it’s only available for the iPhone 5S, 5, 4S and 4.
