It’s Friday and I’ve got a quick review for you of a product that’s meant to offer protection to your electronic gadgets like phones and MP3 players from water, dust and pretty much anything else. It’s called the Dry Doc Digi 2 and it’s from a company Seattle Sports. It’s a simple product that’s very easy to use, it’s basically  a zip style thick plastic bag, but it has straps built in to protect from loss or damage from being dropped.


The Dry Doc Digi 2 comes packaged on just a hanger style cardboard backing.

The case is basically a zip style bag, but it’s heavy duty and puncture resistant.  It has five parts to it, a velcro style wrap, velcro pad, a spring cord with clips on each end a secure wrap and the case itself.

So, to test the Dry Doc 2 I put my phone in it which is a Samsung Galaxy S Captivate.

It fit just fine in the Dry Doc 2 and I could access most of the functions, I can make calls yes, but I found that pushing certain buttons actually pushes another button. Like when I pressed the home button the Search button would light up like I pressed it and search would open.  Why, I don’t know. I think part of the problem is the Seattle Sports logo as it sits right on the buttons of my phone.
I don’t think it’s a major problem that you can’t access everything, after I don’t think you’ll be playing games etc with the case on, but you can make and receive phone calls.

The case seems very well made, it’s simple but it works fine.

I also put my phone in the Dry Doc Digi 2 with the Otterbox Impact case on it, it was a tight fit but it made it.

It will protect your phone or any other small electronic device that you may carry with you. The Dry Doc Digi 2 will protect your devices form water, dust and other things you may come across while being outdoors.
