It floats! It protects! It cracks your Lifeproof case!
on October 24, 2013
I can't tell you how much I loved this LifeJacket at first. Instant visibility for my phone. Extra protection against my toddler. Peace of mind around the bath and swimming pool. Yes, the extra protective bulk made it impossible to put in a pocket, and yes, I had to take the case off every time I needed to charge the phone, but no problem. RIght? Wrong. Every time you take this case off or put it back on, following Lifeproof's directions, no matter how careful you are with it, it puts stress on the upper corners of your Lifeproof case. Your EXPENSIVE Lifeproof case. Over the course of several months, those corners give into the stress and crack like an old rubber gasket. Then air gets into your case, and you know that if you dropped it in water, water would get in, and there you go, the benefits of your EXPENSIVE Lifeproof case have just vanished.
So. For super temporary, one afternoon a month use, this is a great product. Performs exactly as advertised and like I said, you'll love it. Until you realize what it's done. Then you add up what you spent on the two Lifeproof items and you think to yourself, "Self, you are a sucker. Keep that phone away from the pool."
