    Hunting Season starts here in Florida in two weeks.
    I like to carry my cell for emergencies or to brag to my buddies.

    I will probably hook in the headphones or a blue tooth head set to take calls.
    It would be nice to text while its protected but not mandatory.

    Any one have a waterproof case or bag they like?

    Here is a link from Amazon that has different waterproof cases that you could probably use.

    Yes- thanks. Looking for a review from someone that has used a specific product.

    I almost bought one for my Amazon Kindle. I've read where people have actually tested them by putting a paper towel inside and then locking the bag closed, submerging the bag under water for 10 minutes and the paper towel inside remains dry.

    There are different manufacturers but they all basically use the same concept.

    IMO the best water proof case that fits the pre perfectly is the otterbox 1000 case. I got mine from amazon for $6.99 with free shipping. If you look up the inside dimensions it seems like it is too small but trust me it fits great and I moded mine by adding an igrip mount and it is really cool you can check it out on my flickr,I will post a link.

    here is the amazon link:

    I've used the Dri Pak cases for years; my Treo was used in salt water for many years and did just fine, and you can make and answer calls, even look at radar through it with no problems while it's protected. The size is important, because the Pre tends to stick to the vinyl...especially if you have a skin on it. You need to have enough room to be able to easily slide it in and out. I bought one on Ebay that fit it by size but it was really too small. But Dry Paks are the way to go if you want to use the phone while it's protected. Sticking it in an Otterbox is fine as long as you don't want to use it.
