    Product is well made and my iPhone 5s fits inside nicely. I would recommend this to anyone worried about getting water or dust on your gadget. But it's also fully waterproof I dunked it in the pool with camera rolling to test it and it worked perfectly & the video was very clear. I would recommend practicing closing the seals as they need to click firmly which takes a little getting used to.

    Overall
    5 / 5

    Appropriately named, the BeachBuoy may not float on water but it will protect your electrical devices from the great ol’ British weather.<br />
    <br />
    Approved by the British Standards Institution, it guarantees being waterproof to 5 metres/16 feet of water, I tested this theory.<br />
    <br />
    Not brave enough to put my phone inside, I tested with a piece of paper and it did not leak inside the bag which is fantastic. You also have the ability to use the touch screen through the plastic protection screen too.<br />
    <br />
    You may never find yourself needing to put your electrical device under 8 metres of water, but when at a festival where the heavens have opened it will keep it safe from the rain no problem.

    I really liked it - even if you don't take it into water - it is a nice carrier for stuff including iPhone on a holiday - especially on a beach holiday!<br />
    <br />
    The clickety locking mechanism which in various YouTube videos sounds so clear did not quite happen when I used it and so it did not instil the confidence in me to take it in water - shame really - although I did try it in a bath tub and it did seem to work yet on the beach in the sea or the pool jumping around and all - I was not quite sure!

  25. Waterproof cover for kindle
    Overall
    5 / 5

    Having heard of someone reading a kindle in the bath, which was then dropped in by mistake and died, I was a little worried to take my kindle on holiday and read it by the pool. I purchased my Proporta Beachbuoy for the kindle. It was pretty easy to seal and if I tilted the case to the right, pretty easy to turn off and on. However, after three days usage it seemed totally unnecessary, as it hadn't even been touched by a drop of water. The next day it got splashed by people playing with a ball in the pool next to me. As I don't swim and read, the kindle case for me, is more like putting your seat belt on in a car. Most of the time you don't need it, but when you do it is there ready and waiting. Next I shall try it on the beach for keeping water and sand out of my kindle; should work for mud and snow as well.

    5 / 5

    I bought this recently after a personal recommendation from my dear friend Lin. So far I have stress tested the product in a number of surroundings including my bath tub, a luxury spa (both in the hot tub + Jacuzzi), it has been fully submerged under water and floats nicely on the surface. The double seal design seems to be very effective at keeping the water out. I have had much admiration from other spa users to who keep coming over for a demo, I happily push it under the water and they all always go 'wow!'... fantastic product for your Kindle! :D

    Overall
    5 / 5

    I held off buying a Kindle for quite a while as I read a lot in the bath but decided to take the plunge and bought this case. I've been really impressed so far, I have very hot baths and the steam/humidity does not get through the case. I haven't dropped it in the bath so other than the initial tissue test I haven't really tested it's waterproofness when submerged. I also used the case on holiday to prevent sun cream and sand getting into the Kindle. I would definitely recommend this case.

    I bought this waterproof cover as we where going on holiday with a small child. So lots of water and sand. Well this was brilliant. It protected my kindle really well. It was still easy to use all the buttons and really easy to read. Really great product. I am now ordering another for my dad as he lives abroad so spends lots of time on the beach and by the pool.

    Overall
    5 / 5

    Not the cheapest but worked brilliantly !!. Used it almost daily in the pool, while relaxing in a water hammock, for the 5 weeks I was in Australia. No problems. My niece enjoyed reading the Kindle underwater and while under a waterfall in the pool. It was wonderful not to worry about it. Having said that - I would always do the recommended test with tissue paper after plane journey etc (or not using it for a while) - as my Kindle is too precious to lose.

  34. waterproof kindle protection
    Overall
    5 / 5

    Purchased to take with me on family beach holiday. It does exactly what it says, keeps Kindle safe from water/sand and also sticky fingers! I have used by the pool, on the beach and also in the bath. Whilst I haven't submerged it under water, the case does protect well from splashes and wet hands and I am confident that it would protect my kindle if accidentally dropped. It is easy to take in/out of the case and easy to operate the kindle buttons through it, even the slide on/off switch which is a little fiddly but you can do it relatively easily. My husband already has one of these which he has had for a few years and it is still as good as new. Definitely recommend this over the cheaper alternatives.

    Overall

    Brilliant. At first I was unsure about paying that little bit more for what is, in essence, a simple thing but pleased is what I am.Kindle (original with keyboard) fits just fine. The cover is soft enough to turn the device on and off. Not obtrusive and doesn't interfere with the job of reading.<br />
    PLUS when the 'kids' got over excited with water squirts around the pool my kindle was unscathed! (Unlike the one on a neighboring sun lounger).<br />
    Well worth the money.

    I am delighted with the waterproof case for my Kindle.

Thank you.

    Overall
    5 / 5

    Very pleased with this. Certainly totally water proof. Been reading in the bath with no issues ( bar slight steaming up, on outside only, but then no way round this, I like a very hot bath and anyway not to the degree that I can't still read the text.) Looks good, easy to hold. Looking forward to taking it on holiday. What more could you want from a waterproof case; steam proof front-not sure that's physically possible so can hardly be viewed as a detractor.

    Overall
    5 / 5

    Although I keep my Kindle in a secure case that protects it from everyday knocks, nevertheless I am concerned if I have it somewhere around when it rains or if I am in a dirty place such as a wood or the beach. This case is the answer. The Kindle fits easily inside and can be operated through the closed case. I sealed some tissue paper in the case and submerged it under water for about a minute. The tissue came out perfectly dry. A worthwhile investment!

    I will use as intended to protect your cell phone. I will recommend to the fishermen. Quality is good but there is a problem of internal fasteners to quickly break down and seal is broken.
