Waterproof bag ?

Hello,

did anybody walk over to his local outdoor store to check what waterproof bag does fit his new bookeen best yet?


Would this one fit: Aquapac PDA Classic Plus+ (Code 360)
Any recommendations ?

Thank you

It fits Sony reader. Even with the original cover attached and folded back.
So check dimensions of the Sony Reader PRS500 and compare them to your device.

Hi,

Just bought the PDA Classic Plus+ (Code 360) for my CyBook today.
Perfectly fits!

Much-much better than the Small Whanganui (Code 650).

Cheers

That Aquapac looks like it fits the Cybook perfectly. Is it the Small Whanganui (Code 650)? http://www.aquapac.net/usstore/erol.html

Would the Aquapac fit the Sony Reader PRS-505?

Looks nice. Now is there some sort of case/cover for that since the protective cover is no longer in place?

No. I use it at home in the bath mostly and afterwards i take it out and put it back in its cover. (The CyBook though, which i like better than the sony)

There was an excellent tip from Roy White in another thread, http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=14912:

"Put reader in bag not sealed, immerse bag in sink forcing air out making sure the opening was out of water, then sealing bag, WALLA! all the air out."

It 'shrink wraps' the bag to the reader and makes it easier to read through the plastic.

Cheers Roy

Just to confirm... with one of these properly on my Cybook, if I read in the bath and I happen to drop it, then no harm will come to it? Or is it only for splash protection?

As long as the grey levers are in the sealed position, the Cybook is protected if dropped into water.

The Aquapacs are waterproof up to 5 meters depth. Although i would not want to read in that depth And when you use it in the tub, you have to take into account, that hot water is not goot for the aquapacs. You should not leave it floating in the water for a longer period of time.

Yeah, it turns out they have a UK site (oh why didn't I just follow the link in the first post) where they go into detail about what the product does and doesn't do.

I won't be using it in a steaming hot bath, underwater!

I'll just be holding it in my hand, safe in the knowledge that if I drop it or it gets splashed then it's fine.

I ordered one last night - the size that Tribble's shop (if I've read correctly) sells.
