Hull & Stern Dry Bag

According to Gizmodo Australia, one of the most common phone hardware issues is water damage. The water itself does not cause damage to the phone — it’s the short circuits that occur when your phone’s electricity meets with water that causes the problem. Whether you have an iPhone, Android, Windows Phone or an invincible Nokia 5110, turn that thing off. Now you need to focus on getting your phone dry whether through silica gel, uncooked rice or a blow dryer. Some people say that the most effective way of solving a problem is to prevent the problem from arising, and the best way to prevent your gadgets from soaking and breaking is by keeping them in a sturdy dry bag.

A couple of months ago, I received a 10L Dry Bag from Hull & Stern, a Philippine-based dry bag start-up founded by an adventurer who likewise experienced one of the most common phone dilemma, water damage. The Hull & Stern Dry Bag offers protection from dust and water so you can feel more secure about your essentials and gadgets and focus on adventures instead. Hull & Stern is the perfect companion for Diving, Snorkeling, Mountain Climbing, Cliff Jumping, Swimming and Island Hopping.
