Beach Buoy 100% Waterproof Case and Pouch for Smartphones, Phablets, Tablets, and Digital Cameras : Now Available At Kimstore!

It's summer season once again and I'm sure a lot of you are planning to go to the beach (if you haven't already) and bring your gadgets with you for capturing the experience and immediately sharing photos and videos on your social networking accounts.

But I bet - like me - you're also worrying and wondering just how safe it is for our gizmos to be exposed to "beach conditions". Sure, there are now a number of devices out there that actually offer a level of protection against water and dust ingress - making them quite attractive for use in such situations - but very few are protected against seawater and sand.

Well, worry no more because Kimstore, my trusted online store, has just brought to the Philippines BeachBuoy 100% Waterproof Case by Proporta!

Available in three sizes, Beach Buoy is made of durable materials offering complete protection for your smartphone, phablet, digital camera, and even your tablet!

Apart from having an airtight construction, Beach Buoy has a three-layer lid protection against water and particle ingress. There are two zip locks or click seals - one on top of the other - plus the velcro tape on the outer most part for ultimate waterproofing.

I have here the smallest variant, which sells for only Php 799 - and it's perfect for the iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, and iPhone 4S. And if you're wondering, yes, you can use your device while it's within the case to make calls, swipe on the touchscreen, take photos, record videos, and click on the volume and power buttons.

My LG G2 with its 5.2 inch Full HD display is a tad too big for this pouch - I can't see the topmost part of the display where the status bar is and that won't do it for me. I guess I also need to get the Php 999 Beach Buoy variant for phablets and 8-inch tablets. Which reminds me, I should also buy the Php 1,099 version for tablets with up to 10-inch screen for my iPad Mini.
