Life is great with your funky electronic gadgets, until you come across water, that is. Aquapac, a UK-based company of international fame, have been making waterproof cases for your gadgets for the last 20 years.
You might not have seen them, unless you spend your time around boats, where they have quite a following.
Perhaps the hottest case at the moment is the MP3 Player case. It's designed for the iPod, of course, and as you can see from the images, you can access the click wheel. However, those clever people at Aquapac have pulled up a list of common MP3 players so you can see if this is for you; surf over to http://www.aquapac.net for a look.
Waterproof headphones are not included, but you are unlikely to be using the player in the water - it's more for those accidents - and you can always get new headphones, or use cheap ones when messing around on a lilo. It comes with a built-in headphone jack so no little holes for the water to get in.
The Aquapac case is 100% waterproof, dustproof and sandproof, guaranteed submersible to 15ft/5m, so it is perfect for beach activities as well as those in the water. To keep it securely attached when in the waves the case comes with a lightweight neoprene belt pouch. The MP3 player case is £59.99.
Aquapac also do PDA covers, phone cases and a variety of other 100% waterproof cases. So, if you are taking to the water, beach or snow, this guarantees your gadgets. They even do an SLR case for £80, so check them out.
