OYSTER BAY, NEW YORK (for immediate release) – Preventing the inconvenience of losing a phone as well as inadvertent damage to pristine environments, Aquapac 100% waterproof mobile phone cases provide a dual benefit for outdoor enthusiasts who want the security of in-the-field telephone capability.

Aquapac’s diverse line of custom-sized 100% waterproof cases fit all mobile phone profiles, including flip phones. The line embraces the reality that a mobile phone has become one of the 10 essentials of the outdoor lifestyle.

“In certain outdoor situations, there is a clear safety benefit to bringing a mobile phone or GPS,” said Tim Turnbull, CEO of Aquapac. “And if it’s worth bringing it, it’s worth protecting it.”

With numerous direct testimonials ranging from windsurfers to adventure racers (LINK), Aquapac cases have cemented themselves among passionate outdoor enthusiasts as far more than a mere convenience.

“The only thing that survived after our terrifying capsize was our spare Iridium satellite phone which had been protected from the Atlantic by its brilliant Aquapac bag,” said James Cracknell (LINK), a participant in the 2006 Atlantic Rowing Race and two-time Olympic rowing champion.

Aquapac mobile phone cases deliver 100% use-through functionality, allowing you to access function buttons as well as speak and hear clearly through a virtual second skin. Guaranteed waterproof to 15 feet below the surface, Aquapac cases provide the additional security of floating to the surface when dropped.

Keeping the phone on board where it belongs is additionally important as mobile phones are classified as hazardous waste (LINK), according to the American Chemical Society (LINK). Mobile phones contain persistent toxins – such as antimony, arsenic, beryllium and cadmium — which can leach into the surrounding environment through water or soil.

Aquapac mobile phone cases are created with 100% waterproof polyurethane (PU) and sealed with the legendary Aquaclipâ„¢ (LINK). Made from shatter-resistant premium polycarbonate, the Aquaclip is built to look good regardless of abuse. A pair of easy-to-slide levers open and close the Aquaclip, making access to your phone as simple as the flip of a switch.

Adding another layer of confidence, Aquapac phone cases and the gear they protect are covered by a 3-year global warranty.

Aquapac phone cases include the Flip-Phone Case ($35); Micro Phone/GPS Case ($25); Mini Phone/GPS Case ($25); Small Phone/GPS Case ($25); Medium Phone/GPS Case ($25); and Large Phone/GPS Case ($25).

ABOUT AQUAPAC: Aquapac’s diverse line of 100% waterproof and 100% use-through systems are the choice of outdoor professionals and passionate outdoor enthusiasts in over 50 countries. Malleable and transparent, Aquapac cases are a virtual second skin for personal electronics, photography equipment, maps, documents, and other essential items. Aquapac cases are sealed with the patented Aquaclip®, a sleek and complete sealing system that’s guaranteed waterproof to 15 feet below the surface. Aquapac cases float when dropped, preventing the loss of valuable equipment and also eliminating the risk of unwanted disposal of metals and electronic equipment in pristine environments. Aquapac received a 2007 Queen’s Award for Innovation, the equivalent of a “corporate knighthood” for a British company.
