Just received this lifejacket for my lifeproof case today. This item is really heavy duty with a neck and wrist lanyard and a custom fit for the lifeproof case. The thickness of this case will really insulate the phone but still fits comfortably in your hand using the phone and you can hear calls clearly and it's not as heavy as one might think by looking at the photos online. This will allow me to take my phone on the lake kayaking this week without fear of losing the phone in the "drink" as well as on the boat and might even take some pictures behind the boat wakeboarding this summer. One issue is it's a very tight fit on the case, and I found it a bit difficult to remove the phone, but this would translate into no chance that the phone in it's lifeproof case has any chance of coming out of the life jacket even in extremely rough surf!! The lanyard connections seem quite secure and I love that you have the option of using a neck lanyard or one for the wrist which will allow me to use it in many scenarios. I have dropped my lifeproof case several times already, at work and once onto our marble floors with no damage to my phone and it would be nearly "blast" proof in this jacket! I love the orange color but the one issue for me is the smell!!! Wow , when I opened the case, I was overcome with an awful plastic smell that quickly overtook my kitchen. I am hopeful that this smell will go away quickly as it is the only drawback that I can see to this otherwise great product. I just blew away a co-worker the other day when I rinsed off my phone in the sink to get some water spots off my phone from being in the shower and getting some soap on the front! The look of their face was priceless as they watched me put it under running water and then wiping it dry!! So far I am very pleased with your products, I hope they last a very long time as they are not inexpensive!! But great design is not inexpensive and I feel very confident that this product will do what I bought it for, allow me to take my Iphone places I would never have thought possible. I look forward to this summer on the lake dragging my phone around, taking pictures and videos and making and receiving calls in and on the water!!! Thanks lifeproof!!
