Mother Nature doesn’t always cooperate with your plans. You might think the forecast is all clear for that hiking trip, or that the boat ride will be smooth sailing. But taking the risk with your electronics isn’t worth it if you’re not sure.
Why not protect your small electronics with the OtterBox Drybox 3250?
Yes, there are waterproof and water-resistant phone cases. This isn’t that. It’s a straight-up drybox that protects your gear (whether you ‘ve got electronics, money, love notes, or whatever in it) from water and dirt, and keeps it secure.
The box gives you 55 cubic inches of storage space, meets IP68 requirements, and seals your goods up to 90 feet underwater for 30 minutes. The latches use a stainless-steel hinge and latch pins, which last far longer than many other metals or plastic. On top of that, there are holes two holes for you to add additional security in the form of locks.
The integrated feet are useful if you’re stacking a few of these boxes, and utility mounts let you attach a tether or carabiner for even more security.
I first used my OtterBox Drybox 3250 while winter camping in Ladakh a few months ago. I needed a place to keep my phone, camera batteries, and battery rechargers dry while I wasn’t using them. The Drybox did the trick, and I still use it when in wet environments, whether that’s on the trail or on the water.
One consideration if you’re flying with the Drybox 3250, or making major altitude changes: Make sure you leave it unlatched and open for those changes, otherwise you’ll have to pry the box open.
The OtterBox Drybox 3250 comes in four color combos: hudson (white/blue), ridgeline (tan/green), trail side (RealTree), and basic black. Three of the color combos (hudson, ridgeline, black) list for $39.99 on the OtterBox site, while the trail side version lists for $49.99. The Drybox 3250 is also available at Amazon.
