Hey guys! Wanted to share with you all my first big purchase for my journey…lol. (Not really…the cost is under $6, but it is my first purchase so that part is true.)
It’s this cool watertight case that I found at Walmart when I was out with my mom running errands. This solves the problem of what to do with my phone, etc when I am hiking around and it starts to rain or it’s a perfectly sunny day but I trip and fall into a river or lake…hey..I’m clumsy…that could totally happen!
The brand is Outdoor Products and it is the “Extreme Weather IPX6 Tested” version. It has a clip on top of the case which would be great for attaching it to a backpack. It measures about 7″ long, 5.5″ wide and 3″ deep. It says it is watertight and not waterproof, but I submerged in water and it did not leak. It floats and the seal on it is really good.
I figured this would be great to keep things in such as my phone, matches, lighter, a couple of first aid things, etc when Z and I go hiking around. It’s big enough to fit quite a bit of stuff but small enough to still be handy and lightweight.
