    Question how do i protect my droid from water?

    I work outside in the rain and elements plus i am going to disney world this fall. I want to protect my droid from water damage. Is there a way to protect it? Will a case protect it? I prefer to have one that allows full functionality while also protecting it from water is this possible?
    thank you in advance.

    Other than golden shellback coating then no theres no way. every case will still let water in.

    My friend who works near water puts his in a plastic sandwich bag or uses plastic wrap, cant remember which. Kinda ghetto but its an expensive mistake to make

    There's a couple options.

    ElementCase - Sick looking tank of a case that is waterproof and allows touch screen use. If I had the need and the money for one this would be my choice. Expensive though.

    ElementCASE

    AquaBags - Cheaper bag-type option. Also allows touch screen use. I would prob go with this because of the price. (Theres a couple other companys that make similar bags, you may want to do a search to see if there is price/quality differences.)

    Waterproof Phone and GPS cases

    which is better the element case of the aquabags?
    Does anyone sell the aquabags or anything like it(like best buy,verizon)?

    I see the otterbox has waterproof cases but not small enough to fit in my pocket. Would fit in my girlfriends bag though.

    If I think there will be an issue (canoe trip or something) I usually put my phone in a ziplok bag, then put that bag in another ziplok bag.

    It limits function, but maintains dryness.

    In terms of which is better, I dont know, I havent used either. Like I said before though, the price difference would be enough for me to try out the Bags first. In terms of size the ElementCase is really big, I doubt it would fit in your pocket. But if your phone is going to constantly be in harms way everyday you may wanna consider the ElementCase.
