    Product is well made and my iPhone 5s fits inside nicely. I would recommend this to anyone worried about getting water or dust on your gadget. But it's also fully waterproof I dunked it in the pool with camera rolling to test it and it worked perfectly & the video was very clear. I would recommend practicing closing the seals as they need to click firmly which takes a little getting used to.

  14. it will keep it safe from the rain no problem.
    5 / 5

    Appropriately named, the BeachBuoy may not float on water but it will protect your electrical devices from the great ol’ British weather.<br />
    <br />
    Approved by the British Standards Institution, it guarantees being waterproof to 5 metres/16 feet of water, I tested this theory.<br />
    <br />
    Not brave enough to put my phone inside, I tested with a piece of paper and it did not leak inside the bag which is fantastic. You also have the ability to use the touch screen through the plastic protection screen too.<br />
    <br />
    You may never find yourself needing to put your electrical device under 8 metres of water, but when at a festival where the heavens have opened it will keep it safe from the rain no problem.

    3 / 5

    I really liked it - even if you don't take it into water - it is a nice carrier for stuff including iPhone on a holiday - especially on a beach holiday!<br />
    <br />
    The clickety locking mechanism which in various YouTube videos sounds so clear did not quite happen when I used it and so it did not instil the confidence in me to take it in water - shame really - although I did try it in a bath tub and it did seem to work yet on the beach in the sea or the pool jumping around and all - I was not quite sure!

    I bought this to protect my iPhone / iPod , used it a couple of times to go into the sea and did what it says on the tin which is to protect my phone . Can carry around the wrist or neck when going into water for when you don't want to leave valuables unattended .

  26. Great little waterproof cover that you can trust
    5 / 5

    Well I have been looking for a water proof cover that I can actually trust my beloved kindle to and I think I have found it in the Beach Buoy, on arrival I was pleased with the quality of the item and on completing the tissue test I am confident that it will keep my kindle safe and dry in the bath, spa or on holiday. I think this is a case of you get what you pay for and so far I feel I have received a quality item which does the job it is designed to for a very reasonable price. One thing which I will be adding and the company could supply to make things even better is a silica sachet `just in case' but I think that is really just for peace of mind!

    The Proporta waterproof cover fits snugly & is great for reading my kindle while lying at the edge of the swimming pool when it gets too hot to lie in the sun. It's also just great for keeping the device dry while relaxing in the bath! The service is first class too!

  32. Looks like it will do what it says on the tin
    4 / 5

    I bought two of these covers in preparation for our holiday next week after reading the reviews for all the other 'waterproof' cases on the market, which seemed to suggest this one is the best. After testing it as recommended, it is certainly perfectly watertight and seems robust enough to cope with the rigors of our habit of reading a book a day whilst we are away. Unfortunately (and understandably) the Kindle has to come out of the cover for turning on, but I don't see a way round that unless the Kindle design department comes up with something other than a tiny little button on the bottom. I have only given it four stars so far as I don't know how well it will also cope with sun cream and sand, or how easy it will be to read the screen in sunlight, but I will update the review when we get home.
    (Posted on 04.09.2013 | 09:50)

  33. Decadence at its best
    5 / 5

    The quality of the product is very high. After the initial test (putting tissue inside the case, sealing it and submerging it in water) I had no qualms with using it to read my Kindle in the bath. The first time I did this it was subjected to being pushed under water, floating on the water, etc, with no ill effects whatsoever. Since then I use it every time - it's very rarely dropped into the water but it does give complete peace of mind should that happen by accident.

  34. No more soggy paperbacks
    4 / 5

    I ummed and ahhhed about spending this much on a waterproof case, as there are plenty of alternatives for less money out there. I'm glad that I did as it's robust, watertight and I needn't worry about sun cream or sand in my Kindle on holiday. I think it's worth spending a few extra quid to get something reliable, as it costs a lot more than that to replace a waterlogged Kindle. I only gave it 4 stars as it's quite big for the 6" kindle and I would have preferred something a little more 'figure hugging' but I can't complain about the quality and functionality.

  35. Great Item
    5 / 5

    Bought this item for a long trip I am going on - hence why I bought the kindle to start with! We will be in and around water/sand etc and I wanted to ensure my expensive kindle didn't get trashed - tested as recommended and all seems well - so far so good - hope it works as well under tougher conditions!

  37. waterproof case for kindle
    4 / 5

    Cases seem well made, and much better quality than the cheaper version I bought last year (and which split!). Only problem is, that it doesn't work that well for Kindle touch, but is totally fine for the non-touch kindles.

  39. 5* Quality item
    5 / 5

    This was a little more pricey than other "waterproof" kindle covers so I was slightly nervous about value for money; however as soon as it arrived I was immediately impressed by the quality of it. It has now survived sea,sun, sand, sunscreen and chlorine as well as bubble bath! Really glad I bought this product and will now be an essential piece of holiday equipment(as well as allowing me to read my kindle in the bath!). As with other reviews of this type of product it is slightly tricky to turn the kindle off or into hibernate mode,but I stress "slightly" as I more than managed to cope. Would definitely recommend.

  40. Sturdy and looks like it will last
    4 / 5

    Purchased this product about two weeks ago and have yet to test it out at the beach, but is looks sturdy and I am confident that it will do the job. Other waterproof covers for the Kindle have been described in reviews as being "freezer bags" and have complaints that they split. This product is NOTHING like a freezer bag - the transparent plastic is much much thicker so should last.

  41. Bought for Sony reader
    5 / 5

    Bought this for my Sony reader prs650 - fits a treat. I have done the 'Tissue test' as advised and really scrunched the pack - No leaks, tried using with reader and all button functions work no problem but the touchscreen needs more than a touch but does work.

  43. Does what it says on the tin
    5 / 5

    More utilitarian than elegant perhaps but a simple and effective design. Double seal heavy duty plastic bag - ideal for taking your Kindle to the beach as it keeps out sand and crèmes as effectively as water. One can operate the device whilst still in the bag. Has the additional quality of camouflaging one's Kindle to make it less obvious to thieves.

  44. Problem solved
    5 / 5

    The BeachBuoy has just solved a new, but irksome problem. I have had several disasters with conventional books which got soaked at bath-time when I nodded off, so when I got my Kindle a few months ago, I knew I couldn't use it for reading in the bath (one of life's great pleasures for me). But this was irritating because sometimes I just wanted to carry on reading the item on my Kindle. I was very surprised (and a little disbelieving) when a friend told me that you could get waterproof covers for Kindles. However, after a quick Internet search, I found the BeachBuoy which was delivered with remarkable speed. The plastic on the front is very soft and flexible, so that the Kindle controls can be easily managed. A life-enhancer!

    I will use as intended to protect your cell phone. I will recommend to the fishermen. Quality is good but there is a problem of internal fasteners to quickly break down and seal is broken. This is not my first purchase. A change in the treatment and service center takes time for international buyers.
