Who are Aquapac?...

Aquapac iPhone6 Waterproof Phone Case Review WalkHikeClimb

About Aquapac

Aquapac was founded back in 1983 here in London (UK), where we still have our head office. It all started with three young windsurfers wondering if they couldn’t find a way to listen to a Sony Walkman while on (and in) the water. What they came up with was certainly not the most elegant-looking product. But it worked!

Jump forward 30 years and here we are with an ever-expanding range of products selling in more than 60 countries. Along the way we’ve picked up three Queen’s Awards which is nice. And we’ve sold many millions of Aquapac 100% waterproof cases, bags and pouches. Which (at the risk of incurring Her Majesty’s Displeasure) is nicer still!

The Professionals Choice

As well as selling to discerning, highly intelligent individuals like you (ahem) we’re thrilled to be the trusted choice of all sorts of professional users. Emergency services like the Los Angeles Lifeguard, the London Fire Brigade, Japan Lifeguard and Spanish Red Cross – these and many more buy Aquapac. So too do major original equipment manufacturers such as Flip Video, Motorola, Nikon and Sony.

So What Makes Us Tick?

We believe in designing genuinely useful products that help you to enjoy the great outdoors. By putting your mind at rest that you and your electronic gear – and other valuables – are properly protected from the elements.

We believe that what we sell must be of the very best quality – the same quality that we demand when we buy other people’s products. And we believe in treating our customers the way we ourselves want to be treated.

It’s Your Choice

Of course there will always be people out there offering you products which are superficially similar to ours. Before you opt for a cheaper alternative, I’d just ask you to consider one thing. Do they stand behind their products the way we do?

For a clear illustration of what makes Aquapac stand out from the crowd, check out our Full 5-Year Warranty. We don’t think you’ll find anything out there to beat it.

If you’ve read this far then thank you (and frankly I’m amazed!)

Now go ahead please and Immerse Yourself in the wonderful waterproof world of Aquapac!


  • We call this the ‘Whanganui Plus’ – it’s named after a whitewater river in New Zealand.
  • Everything works normally through the special plastic (TPU), including cameras and capacitive touchscreens*.
  • You’ll be able to talk and hear without a problem. And get great photos and video too.
  • It’ll protect your phone from dust, dirt and sand as well as water.
  • Most phones will float in this case – but make sure you test yours in a basin before you launch it into the sea!
  • The seams are high-frequency welded to form a super-strong bond.
  • The Aquaclip® (a patented, ultra-secure, rustproof plastic seal) opens and closes with a simple twist of two levers. And everything stays in one piece even when it’s open.

*Underwater photography warning! Capacitive screens don’t work underwater – the water breaks the circuit – so you use the volume buttons to operate your camera underwater.

*Fingerprint Recognition Warning! Fingerprint recognition such as Apple’s Touch ID doesn’t work through the Aquapac – you have to enter your passcode.

I have to say I love the Aquaclip® (a patented, ultra-secure, rustproof plastic seal) mechanism on the Aquapac for iPhone6, albeit that these type of cases don’t feel overly robust.

I suspect advances in materials and bonding methods is likely to exceed my expectations and certainly the quality and attention to detail does not leave you wanting.  The two clip system, which is operated by two cams or levers, is exceptionally easy to use.  Flip the levers, open the mouth and drop in your device.

Being able you still use your phone whilst it’s protected is great.  It provides you with peace of mind and means you can still take pictures, video, browse or make a call whilst keeping your phone protected.  Where the Aquapac scores highly for me, is that the rear of the case is completely clear meaning there are no ‘margins’ to obscure your screen.

Looking at the clip system in some detail reveals the quality and thought that has gone into manufacture.  The through pins connected to the clips are really neat idea…

Meaning you can remove your phone from its slumber when the mood takes you or it’s safe to do so.  Supplied with a good quality and adjustable lanyard also provides added security, something that’s dogged me personally when swimming.

The loop attachment is very robust and unlike to snap under pressure.

Aquapac have a rigorous testing process using recognised industry standards

The IPX Scale

Aquapac iPhone6 Waterproof Phone Case Review WalkHikeClimbOur products are rated according to the international standard IEC 60529 – “Degrees of Protection Provided by Enclosures”.  This standard was developed by a technical committee of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).  In the USA it’s been adopted as an American National Standard by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association.  And it’s identical to the Japanese JIS standard.

In-House Testing

During manufacture we batch-test the Submersible cases in our pressure chamber at 1.0 bar, which is equivalent to 33ft (10.1m) of water.  We also do a simple, manual squeeze-in-a-basin test (sometimes it’s the real-life tests that really count!)
