Normally, water activities and electronics do not go hand in hand. However, with Dry Pak’s waterproof electronics cases, this mutual exclusivity is no more. These travel accessories allow vacationers to use their technology in the water and perform luxuries typically reserved for dry land — anything from calling a significant other while relaxing in a resort pool to taking photos of a coral reef.

The nine-inch by 12-inch Clear Tablet Case ($29.99) comes complete with a built-in earphone jack for listening to videos or music. For the more traditional traveler, this pack can also be used to keep maps or food dry.

The four-inch by six-inch Cell Phone, GPS, MP3 Case ($14.99) is perhaps the most useful piece in the waterproof travel series. This accessory allows the user to stay connected to family, friends and social media no matter how wet the environment. Purchase of this product includes a free anodized aluminum carabiner and neck lanyard.

The six-inch by five-inch by two-inch Camera Case ($15.99) is made of a clear, thermoplastic polyurethane material that allows the user to take high-quality photos without having to remove the camera. Included is an adjustable camera strap.
