Rated 4 out of 5Â by kwkaren Handy on the beach!
Bought this for a trip to the Caribbean. Knew we would be doing a lot of snorkeling and didn't want to leave car keys, etc. on the beach. It was great for carrying keys, ID, and a little cash into the water with me. I would wind the strap around my bathing suit and clip the strap with the lanyard - that way it was close to my body and not floating all over the place (my husband just put his around his neck and it was fine, too). I also zipped the contents in a zip lock bag for added protection. My husband tried using his to carry his cell phone (also inside a zip lock bag too), but he didn't seal his zip lock bag properly and the phone got wet and ruined. You have to be sure to read the directions and make sure you seal the bag REALLY WELL if you are going to try to use it for your cell phone. Also, use a zip lock bag and make sure it is sealed properly. It would probably have been okay if we had been boating or something and it had fallen into the water with the phone in it - it floats - but we had the bag submerged for long periods and were unaware water was seeping in. Even so, it's a great investment to be able to keep your valuables close to you and not be leaving them on the beach or in your car where they might be stolen.
