Although the Micro Case is not designed to be taken underwater, it’s strong, durable and watertight enough to protect your gear from just about anything the outdoors can throw at you.

    this is very cool

  2. These are truely great cases. If you put a little grease around the seal it becomes even more water proof. if it’s raining, you can run your gps in the case and read the screen through the clear cover.
