Ziploc Upgrade – Small Watertight Box
I’m probably a little more excited than I should be about my small watertight box. (Sounds weird, I know.)
I usually carry my wallet and or phone in a Ziploc baggie and shove it in my pocket or in my tankbag when I’m on my dirtbike. A top notch waterproofing system for electronics, my bankcard and license, right?
I just happened to see this Outdoor Recreation box while I was looking for something else. With the Big Berkshire Aventure 2-day ride coming up, I thought – for less than $10 bucks, what the hell? It might be better than the baggie-method. Especially when the opportunity exists to fall over in things like:
Product not intended to be submerged. Product is not intended for microwave or freezer use. Not for storing food or water.
I don’t know if I should worry about the fact that the label on the box says not to submerge it. Or microwave it. (Um, okay?) I’m just going to throw caution to the wind and hope for the best. Hopefully, having my wallet in the box will have the same voodoo as having all the correct tools or rain gear on the bike – I won’t need it.
You can pick up the box at Walmart (which I hate) for around $6 -or- the cost of a box of Ziploc gallon sized bags.
Cross your fingers for me!
