TAIPEI, TAIWAN — March 7, 2012 — BioLogic, a specialist in urban cycling gear, today announced its Dry Bag for Smartphone, a waterproof bag for touchscreen phones. The Dry Bag is perfect for use while out cycling, sailing on a boat, hiking, or just out for a stroll — anytime someone needs a convenient way to carry a smartphone and protect it from the elements. The Dry Bag is easily hung around the neck for easy access to a phone for listening to music or checking GPS position at a glance.
The Dry Bag for Smartphone protects against a wide variety of nasty weather while allowing the best features of the smartphone to shine. Headphones work via a built-in waterproof audio connector that also supports in-line headphone remotes. A thin-film window allows full access to a phone’s touchscreen and a window on the backside allows use of a phone’s camera to take pictures or video. The Dry Bag comes with a lanyard, which features a safety snap-release system, and meets the standard for an Ingress Protection Rating of IP67, meaning it protects from particulates like sand and dust and is waterproof to 1 meter (3 feet).
“People are increasingly using smartphones in their outdoor activities be it to record a bike trip, navigate their way to a new place, or just hanging out at the pool or beach,” stated Jessica Wang, project manager for BioLogic. “The Dry Bag is a perfect way to use your phone in an active lifestyle and ensure that it remains safe and dry.”
The Dry Bag for Smartphone will be available through select bicycle retailers worldwide and through the BioLogic Online Store at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of US$20 and €20.
