    totally killed my cellphone when I slipped and fell at the boat launch. That one was my fault. Otter case protects well from impact but does NOTHING to protect from water. I knew better, just got careless. For cell phone number 2 I got the West Marine Dry Pak, medium 5inx6in. A Galaxy 4 IN THE OTTER BOX will just fit in this one. I can still make calls and even use the camera but the quality is lower cause I'm shooting thru plastic. It comes with a lanyard that will fit around my neck and secure with a slider so it does not come off. Might be handy in an emergency so my phone will be dry and usable and wont leave me. I tested the seal and it seals quickly with repeatable results. Did stay closed tight in the sink test. Did float with the phone in it. I am not sure how well it will hold up after lots of use. The only concern I have is that the plastic clamp has hollow areas on its inside. If you plan on getting it wet a lot and then going in and out of this thing you can get small amounts of water in it. I carry a dry box on my boat for everything else but a cellphone needs the extra protection and this will do a good job.

    Too small for the VHF85 Handheld Radio even though the West Marine Website recommends the small size. Unless you plan on removing the belt clip mounting knob/screw on the backside, go with the medium size.

    Otherwise, looks like a great product.

        I bought this product to keep my valuables safe while I paddle board, kayak, or just relax on the beach. It keeps everything dry and clean while still being able to use my phone. Before I bought my dry pak - I had been hesitant to bring my phone out on the water with me and missed out on taking post-card-perfect photos and getting in touch with others. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to stay in touch with reality while escaping for the day!

                        I have used mine for over 3 years and it has never failed and my phone has never gotten wet, except the time I took it out of the case and dropped it in the inlet.
