Hi guys,

I need a tough case for my 3G with a sturdy belt clip, as I use Google Maps to navigate whilst on my motorbike.

My wishlist:

Tough as hell
Waterproof or showerproof
Sturdy belt clip
Must be able to see screen!


I don't need to be able to use the controls or the touchscreen as if I need to change anything I will pull over, take the phone out of the case, make changes, and then reinsert the phone.

Some way of attaching a charging cable would be nice as well but not vital.

Any ideas guys?

Cheers

J?Di

Hmmm perhaps a bad choice of words! Sorry for the warped mental images there...

I think "rainproof" sums it up, doesn't have to survive a tropican monsoon and I have a windscreen on the bike to keep any driving rain off, but if it can keep a few drops of rain off my phone then job's a good un!

This is a great case I picked up a week ago. Check it out.

Looks nice, but it doesn't look particularly waterproof, with the speaker grille and silent buttons exposed.

I've found a Defender case that seems to fit the bill, just trying to find a UK stockist now.

Defender has the headset speaker exposed as well. Silent button on the case I linked to is indeed covered. Not exposed.

*Try a ziplock bag... :D
