The Hutchwilco bag, made of PVC gives Waterproof protection for mobile phones, handheld GPS, car alarm remotes etc. Comes with two Minigrip seals with roll-over protection. Designed to hang around the neck.
Pros: PVC is clear and see-through and allows sound to get through for in-bag operation. Value for money. Love the double seal. Better than old school ziplock bags and drybag style pouches. Floats with air in the bag.
Cons: Bulky (compared to device shells like Otter case), The PVC is not optical grade – so photos taken while in the bag didn’t look good (compared to Lifeproof case). Lastly, I don’t know any sea kayaker who wears their phone around their neck!
Special thanks to Maritime NZ, who sent KASK 100 of these bags – we will be giving them away in coming months at various events and competitions.
