Keep your iPhone and iPod locked up this summer with LOKSAK

My brother-in-law is constantly dropping his phone in lakes, ponds, pools, etc. Fortunately, he only uses cheap, easily replaceable 'feature phones' but for those of us who care about keeping our smartphones dry, there's LOKSAK.

While it looks like a ziplock bag, once you touch the LOKSAK you will feel the heavy duty material. It also let's you operate the iPhone, or iPad if you get the larger case, while it's protected.

These high quality cases are made in the USA, and quite affordable, at under $10 for a three pack, so you have no excuse not to keep one in your travel bag, your pool bag and with your fishing gear, etc.! Or give them out as gifts to your friends with their own slippery hands!
