Dog & Bone Wetsuit keeps iPhone 5 dry Featured

Dog & Bone's forthcoming Wetsuit case for the iPhone 5 is said to be waterproof to two metres.

Here's a challenge: design a waterproof cover for a mobile phone that leaves the touchscreen exposed.

Queensland-based Dog & Bone claims to have achieved this with the Wetsuit case for the iPhone 5.

The trick was to incorporate dual sealing beads running right around the phone.

The Wetsuit iPhone 5 case is said to be waterproof, dirtproof, snowproof and shockproof, and to meet military standards allowing it withstand two metre drops.

An IP68 rating means the case is completely dusttight and is waterproof beyond one metre. Dog & Bone founder and director Lee Ranchod said it can withstand immersion to two metres for up to 30 minutes.

"We know some mobile phone users will want a case like this for work or for fishing or other specific water outings," said Mr Ranchod.
"However for others it's more about confidence day-to-day. The reality is most water damaged phones occur accidentally when you don't expect it so it was important for us our waterproof case was attractive and compact with complete access to ports and controls as well as tough and durable."

The colour range comprises all black (pictured above), black and blue, black and orange, black and white, white and orange, white and blue, and white and lime green.

Despite being an Australian company, Dog & Bone sets prices in US dollars, and the Wetsuit - scheduled for release in July - will cost US$79.95.
