We live in the age of cell phones and no matter how many times we learn the lesson of not bringing our phones to the water, we still do it. Now there’s a way to bring your phone and not blow it by getting it soaked.

A little tip for you iPhone users – you can swipe through the plastic so no need to take it out of the wallet to check those messages!
