The iPhone on a Boat

Date: Mar 06, 2013

You Have a Lifejacket, Shouldn't Your iPhone?

Speaking from experience (unfortunately) we know that when you're in a boat with an iPhone, it's far more likely that the phone will accidentally take a tumble into the water than you will. And, the Coast Guard requires that there's a life jacket for you. Doesn't it make a lot of sense to have a LifeProof LifeJacket for your phone?

Of course it does.

When you're properly equipped it's not a problem to take an iPhone on a boat. Like the guy who makes fishing videos from his kayak and posts them to YouTube - they're popular enough to make him a little money. But, the money he makes is not enough to replace his iPhone every time he drops it in the water.

Few things are worse than the sinking feeling you get when you pull out your iPhone on a boat to take a quick picture or video, when you know there's a decent chance it's going to go into the water. Sometimes that fear even prevents us from using our iPhones on a boat and that's downright sad. After all, Facebook and Instagram need those photos!

The solution to this problem is easy; combine a waterproof iPhone case with a LifeProof LifeJacket. With this setup you can get right down next to the water and snap photos of your friends as they struggle to get up on water skis for the first time. Or, when your kid catches their first fish, you'll capture moments on video that your family will cherish for years.

These LifeJackets are extremely well designed. They go on and off in a snap. They're molded from a foam that is soft, easy to work with and extremely buoyant. Plus, the foam is a bright orange color, so if you drop your iPhone overboard, you have no trouble spotting it and keeping it in your sight.

A surefire recipe for fun is to take life and add water. With the LifeProof LifeJacket, your iPhone safely comes along for the ride.

To sum up all of these advantages, here's what we'd say:

  • Your iPhone is more likely to go overboard than you are
  • Fear of dropping your iPhone into the water makes you hesitant to use it
  • A LifeProof LifeJacket keeps your phone floating high and easily visible
  • Protected by a LifeJacket you can confidently use your iPhone when you're on the water
