Do you take your smartphone out on rides with you?
Well if you’ve just been sticking it in a jersey or jacket pocket then you might be taking an unnecessary risk with something that could be worth hundreds of pounds.
If you get caught out in a downpour then water can find its way inside your phone, causing serious damage which isn’t covered by the warranty. Don’t ask how we know this.
Fortunately the solution can be found on the shelves of the nearest supermarket – in the form of small resealable sandwich bags.
Sure, you can spend much more money on a dedicated phone case, but these are more than waterproof enough and allow you to quickly see who might be calling, texting or emailing you – so you can decide whether it’s worth interrupting your ride to answer.
We like the posh zip-lock versions best.
