Overboard large phone case, £13.29

Time tested: Two months, 4700 miles

What’s good? I’ve been using Overboard products for around five years and they don’t disappoint. Rucksacks, map cases, dry pouches, duffels and document bags have all remained perfectly waterproof. In particular the phone case and similar small pouches are excellent. The large phone case is big enough for my passport, phone and cash. It’s 100% waterproof and submersible up to a guaranteed six metres. The pouch is perfect for touring as I don’t have to faff around with sandwich bags or worry about a soggy wallet at the end of a ride. Perfect for the beach too, where you won’t have to leave your valuables in your jacket pocket while swimming in the sea. It’s sand and dust proof too. I’ve tested it in the sea and it works perfectly - although I’ve never dared to go six metres down.

What’s not? Nothing. Under £15 for a totally waterproof bag is fantastic. You can use a touchscreen phone through the pouch, take pictures underwater and it floats. A brilliant invention!
