YOU HAVE AN IPHONE...
BUT IS IT READY FOR A LIFE IN THE WILD???
IT'S YOUR LUCKY DAY...
THIS TIME AROUND
WE'RE DEALING UP FIVE OF A KIND...
WATERPROOF IPHONE CASES.

((BREAK))

HEY THERE WHAT IS GOING ON...
I'M RICH DEMURO AND THIS IS FIVE OF A KIND.
THE SHOW WHERE WE TAKE A LOOK AT YOUR OPTIONS IN ANY GIVEN CATEGORY.
TODAY IT'S WATERPROOF IPHONE CASES.

SURE, THERE ARE THE STANDARDS - LIFEPROOF AND OTTERBOX COME TO MIND...
BUT YOU'RE HERE... BECAUSE YOU ALREADY KNOW ABOUT THOSE... WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE MORE UNIQUE CASES ON THE MARKET.

***

I LIKE THIS FIRST CASE BECAUSE IT'S MOSTLY CLEAR...SO IT DOESN'T TOTALLY HIDE THE BEAUTY OF THE IPHONE..
IT'S THE SURVIVOR PLUS CATALYST WATERPROOF CASE FROM GRIFFIN.

GO UP TO 9 POINT 8 FEET UNDERWATER
OR DROP IT ... IT'LL HELP YOUR PHONE SURVIVE FROM OVER 6 FEET HIGH.

THE 70 DOLLAR CASE IS MADE FROM CLEAR POLYCARBONATE THAT LETS YOU SEE THE GASKET INSIDE...
SO YOU KNOW THE SEAL IS IN TACT.

GETTING THE CASE ON AND OFF IS ALSO EASY THANKS TO SIMPLE LATCHES.

BUT TAKE IT FROM ME...
THESE THINGS ARE NOT FOOLPROOF.
YOU DO NEED TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE ON PROPERLY BEFORE YOU DUNK YOUR PHONE.

***

NEXT UP... THE HITCASE PRO.

THIS RUGGED CASE PACKS A WIDEANGLE LENS SO YOU CAN GET CREATIVE WITH YOUR PICTURES AND CAPTURE NEARLY DOUBLE THE IMAGE.

IF YOU'RE NOT INTO THAT...YOU CAN TAKE THAT PART OFF.

THE HITCASE PRO IS WATERPROOF UP TO 33 FEET...
THE COMPANY SAYS IT GOES ON AND OFF IN SECONDS.

THIS THING IS BUILT FOR EXTREME SPORTS... THERE'S A RAIL SLIDE SYSTEM THAT LETS YOU MOUNT IT IN MORE PLACES... PLUS IT'S COMPATIBLE WITH the GO PRO MOUNTS YOU MIGHT ALREADY HAVE.
THERE'S ALSO A COMPANION APP CALLED VID-O-METER WHICH OVERLAYS YOUR SPEED, ALTITUDE AND G-FORCE ON YOUR VIDEOS.

HITCASE PRO IS 130 DOLLARS.

***

SNOW LIZARD HAS PUT SOME USEFUL FEATURES INSIDE IT'S SL-XTREME 5 CASE.

THIS THING WILL MAKE YOUR PHONE TOUGH.. AND IT CAN HELP YOU SURVIVE AN ENTIRE DAY OUT IN THE ELEMENTS.

THERE'S AN EXTRA BATTERY INSIDE THAT PACKS 25-HUNDRED AND 50 MILLI-AMPS OF SPARE JUICE... THAT'LL MORE THAN DOUBLE THE TIME YOU GET TO USE YOUR IPHONE.

THERE'S ALSO A SOLAR PANEL, SO YOU CAN RECHARGE WHILE YOU'RE OUTSIDE PLAYING.

THE CASE IS ALSO BUILT TO WITHSTAND FALLS AND YOU CAN TAKE IT UNDERWATER UP TO 6 FEET.

SNOW LIZARD WILL MAKE THE SL-XTREME CASE IN BLACK, ORANGE, YELLOW AND TAN... IT WILL SELL FOR 130 DOLLARS.

***

FOR A LITTLE LESS BULK, CHECK OUT THE BALLISTIC HYDRA.

THE COMPANY SAYS THEIR CASE IS SLIMMER THAN THE REST, FEELS GREAT IN YOUR HAND... AND IT'S EASIER TO PUT ON THAN THE COMPETITION.

IT'S DUSTPROOF AND WATERPROOF UP TO 7 FEET FOR A HALF AN HOUR.

IT CAN HANDLE DROPS UP TO 8 FEET...
PLUS "AIR GAP SUSPENSION SPRINGS" KEEP A TINY 1 MILLIMETER GAP BETWEEN THE PHONE AND THE CASE SO IT'S EVEN MORE CUSHIONED IN A FALL.

BALLISTIC SAYS IT WATER TESTS EACH AND EVERY CASE BEFORE IT LEAVES THE FACTORY...THE HYDRA SELLS FOR 80 DOLLARS.

***

FINALLY, THE CHEAPEST OF THE BUNCH!
IT'S JUST 50 BUCKS TO WATERPROOF YOUR PHONE WITH THE SAFE 5 FROM OUTDOOR TECH.

AS YOU MIGHT EXPECT, THIS ONE IS PRETTY BASIC.

IT CARRIES A SLIGHTLY LOWER WATERPROOF RATING... BUT YOUR PHONE IS PROTECTED TO A DEPTH OF ABOUT 3 FEET UNDERWATER FOR 30 MINUTES.

IT'S MORE FOR A DROP IN THE RAIN OR TOILET...
THAN IT IS FOR AN ALL DAY ADVENTURE OUT ON THE HIGH SEAS.

THE SAFE 5 COMES IN BLUE, ORANGE AND CLEAR.

***

THERE YOU HAVE IT...
FIVE OF A KIND - WATER PROOF IPHONE CASES.

THEY'RE BULKY, AND SOMETIMES PRETTY EXPENSIVE...
BUT THEN AGAIN... YOU DON'T HAVE TO CARRY YOUR IPHONE AROUND LIKE IT'S A NEWBORN.

I'M RICH DEMURO, SEE YA NEXT TIME.
