Despite the fact sailors have long since embraced the use of wireless devices offshore, few thing get along less well with water than non-marinized electronics—which is why we were so excited to learn about the ugo line of tablet and phone cases. The key to these great little bits of gear is a fully waterproof “uZIP zipper,” purported to be submersible up to 20ft. As for the rest of the case, it’s comprised of a three-layer laminate with a thermoplastic polyurethane core to ensure things stay nice and dry within at the same time it feels comfortable to your hand. Three models are available, including the Phone 2.0, Tablet and Table XL, for use with tablets as large as 15in. In addition to its main compartment, each ugo includes a number of smaller pockets and sleeves for things like passports, credit cards and keys.
