Do you enjoy going out and doing active water activities but worry about your iPad or iPhone? Have no fear, the TPU Guide Waterproof Case for the iPad and TPU Guide Waterproof Case for the iPhone are here from Sea to Summit. Perfect for anyone with an active waterbased lifestyle, this case will protect your iPad or iPhone while keeping it accessible and safe. The case consists of a pouch which utilizes Velcro® closures after sliding in the tablet and folding over the material. As you can see from the photo, the iPad is accessible via a screen sized “window” made of Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) and usable while protected in the case. The closure is waterproof to permit a brief submersion without water entry and features attachment points which allow you to “lash” or secure the iPad or iPhone to your boat, kayak, canoe, at the beach or the pool. As a sailor, I know how items can get impacted by the elements and I know I would feel more comfortable encasing my iPad in this while using it for navigation, or even just bringing it along on a trip just in case your iPad or iPhone fell inside the water to prevent from total loss. The case also features a nylon backing with a TPU window which allows your rear camera on the iPad 2 and iPad 3rd generation to work. The pouch weighs a mere 2.3 ounces so it does not add much weight to the overall iPad or iPhone itself.
In terms of features, I really liked that it was photo taking and user friendly. I liked that you could use both the iPad and iPhone while they were protected inside the case. Neither case felt bulky and were waterproof, lightweight and also protected my iPad and iPhone from dust and salt. As a test, I immersed the case in the bathtub to see if water would enter and it lived up to it’s name and remained waterproof for the five minutes I had it in the tub. I would not recommend intentionally submersing your iPad or iPhone, but just in case I think these cases provide a little bit of extra insurance. This is a perfect gift for the active Dad or recent graduate in your life who loves any type of water based activity.
