What’s so special about this case?

  • You’ll be able to talk and hear through it without a problem
  • and get great photos and video
  • and your touchscreen will work normally
  • It’s not just 100% waterproof – it’ll protect your phone from dust, dirt and sand too
  • You won’t necessarily have to buy a new one when you upgrade your phone, because it’s a generic rather than a form-fit case (unlike a hard case, it’s not tailored to a specific device).

Anything Else?

  • It comes with a lanyard so you can hang it round your neck
  • It’s securely, submersibly waterproofed thanks to the quick-action AQUACLIP® seal
  • The seams are welded together with high frequency radio waves, creating a super-strong bond
  • The optically-clear LENZFLEX window is UV-stabilized (so it won’t go yellow in the sun)
  • and the case will still be soft and functional in the extreme cold.

Is this the right size for my phone?

  • This case fits iPhone 5 and iPhone SE and other phones that are the same size – or smaller
  • Check out the Size Guide at the top of the page. It lists most phones and tells you which Aquapacs fit them best.

This is the maximum size of device that will fit:

  • This case fits iPhone 5 and any phone the same size or smaller
  • If you have a bumper case on your phone and want to keep it on when it’s in the Aquapac you may need a wider case.

What else do I need to know?

  • Some smartphones can be very sticky. If your phone is shiny and sticky, pinch the corner of the case and jiggle it to get your phone in and out.
  • Some phones will float in this case and some won’t – make sure you test yours in a basin before you launch it into the sea!
  • Capacitive touchscreens don’t work underwater, the water breaks the circuit. But you can use the volume buttons to operate your camera underwater.
  • Fingerprint recognition such as Apple’s Touch ID won’t work through the Aquapac – you will have to enter your passcode.
  • Some phones have rather sharp edges. We recommend use of a thin bumper case which will protect both phone and case.

Additional Information

Care Instructions

Warning
Our warranty covers this Aquapac only, and not any items you may put inside it. We recommend that you insure the contents separately.

Waterproofness
Our range has been independently tested to international waterproofing standards. However, the waterproofness of your Aquapac depends on your closing and opening it carefully, and on it not being damaged either before or during use. Please follow all instructions carefully.

Before Every Use
Seal something worthless inside, then submerge in a basin to check the waterproofness.

Closing the Case
Make sure that all parts are properly attached. Wipe away any grit or sand, which could hamper the seal. Always turn the levers as far as they will go. They should lock smoothly, if not there may be something impeding the seal.

Opening the Case
Never open your Aquapac in or under water. In order to stop any water getting in when you are opening it, first shake off any water then dry with a towel. Hold the case with the opening at the bottom as you open it.

Ongoing Care
Our materials are strong but can still be punctured. Avoid sharp or abrasive objects and protect from impacts. After regular contact with chlorinated or salt water, or with sun creams, wash in soapy water and then rinse with fresh water. Do not use bleach, alcohol or proprietary cleaners.

Materials
Aquapacs are made from a variety of materials, mostly plastics which make them rustproof. These include TPU, ABS, nylon and polypropylene.

Extreme Temperatures
Although the case material has been UV-stabilized – which means that the plastic shouldn’t be discoloured or broken down by sunlight – the Aquapac won’t protect anything inside it from heat or sunlight. The soft case material is functional and flexible in air temperatures -40ºC to +60ºC (-40ºF to +140ºF), and water temperatures up to +40ºC (+100ºF).

Humidity and Condensation
In humid climates there will be moisture in the air sealed inside the case. Desiccant sachets will absorb the moisture, keeping the contents completely dry. We recommend use of desiccant sachets in all Aquapacs in humid climates. You can purchase spare sachets – see Accessories.

Warning
This is not a toy. It may contain small parts which may be a choking hazard to children under 3. Keep small parts away from children.

Tips for Taking Good Photographs
If you follow a few guidelines there’s no reason why anyone should notice that your photos were taken through a case. It’s a bit like taking a photograph through your window at home. First of all the window needs to be as clean as possible. Even with a clean window you may notice some reflection, but the closer you hold the camera lens to the window, the less the reflection. Similarly our cases give best results with the lens window tight against the camera lens. Try to avoid flash photography but if you do need to use the flash, make sure that the case is tight over the flash so the light doesn’t reflect back into the lens.

Underwater Photography
It takes a bit of practice – and a little luck – to get really good underwater photos. Please don’t think that every shot you take is going to make the cover of SportDiver magazine! You need strong sunshine and clear water. The middle of the day is best, when the sun’s at its highest. Best results will be just below the surface. Light disappears quickly as you go deeper, as do colours (one of the advantages of digital cameras is that you can retouch your photos afterwards to replace colours lost underwater). Flash rarely works underwater. Not because of the Aquapac, but because the flash tends to reflect off particles in the water itself. Even clean water is full of micro-organisms and other particles. The less water between you and your subject, the less difference this will make and therefore the clearer your shots are likely to be. Wide lens and close up is the secret.

    Hi there Aquapac people! I just wanted to thank you for a truly amazing product! Last week I was surfing my kayak out at Whitesands Beach in Pembrokeshire, Wales, when I was hit by a really large wave which separated me from my kayak, paddle and my phone (which was in your Mini Whanganui case). Having got the kayak and paddle to shore I looked for the phone for hours, but couldn’t find it… A large storm and 4 days later I checked at the cafe on the off chance that my phone had been handed in… and it had!! Completely undamaged it had been in the sea for at least 24 hours! The phone didn’t have a scratch on it and was completely dry! Thank you for making such a brilliant product! I’ve been telling anyone who will listen through social media how great your cases are as I also use one for my photography! Best wishes and thanks again, Alexandra.

    Aquapac lead the way in dry bags, and this handy pouch allows you to take your phone or GPS with you safely when kayaking or gorge walking. The plastic is thin enough for the screen to be sensitive to touch, and you can take pictures, too.

    I wanted to share this story with you – feel free to use as desired; I have owned an Aquapac for my iPhone for a couple years and have used it in various conditions; from boating on the lake, to the beach, to skiing in the Utah Mountains. It always has performed great and I love it. Well this week I learned what a truly GREAT product this is. We have been at the beach in Ormond by the Sea, FL for the week of July 4th. 5 days ago, by 15 year old son wanted to borrow the Aquapac to take his iPhone into the surf to video the big waves created from a passing tropical storm Arthur. He did not have the neck lanyard secured tightly to his neck and ended up losing the phone in the ocean about 30 yards off shore. We searched for an hour or so, hoping it would get washed up, with no luck With the very strong surf and current throughout the week, we figured the Aquapac would not withstand that type of beating and the phone was surely lost or ruined for certain. Well today, 5 days after losing the phone, I received a call from the lost phone (I had put a message on the phone using Apple’s Find My iPhone app). A teenage surfer had found the phone in the Aquapac about 1 mile north of our location. He brought the phone home, charged it up and called us. The phone was totally dry and worked perfectly!! Unbelievable that your product withstood this type of pounding and never leaked. Kudo’s to everyone at Aquapac on designing and producing a superb product! Thank you, Dan (I have a picture of the working phone with the Aquapac but I don’t see a way to share it- feel free to contact me if your company would like it or if you would like to use this testimonial –we are so excited to have the phone back and can’t believe it survived!!)

    I just have to let you know how awesome your product is. I own the Aquapac that holds an iPhone and have used it around the pool and beach for years. Yesterday I was walking along the beach in the BVI and realized I had dropped my phone. We searched everywhere I had walked and finally gave up. Today a mega yacht anchored in the bay found my phone floating in the waters of the Caribbean. It had been floating for over 24 hours. We opened the pack and the phone was dry AND STILL WORKING!!! Amazing! Thank you so much for a great product. I am recommending you to everyone I know!
