PP10 with cableLast year, my friends and I went on a canoe trip on the San Marcos River.  One of the canoes flipped and my friend's digital camera got nice and wet.  I don't want that to happen to my Visor, and with the Aquapac Palmtop case (PP10), I'll be able to take my Visor out on the river with peace of mind.


The PP10 is a vinyl waterproof case with a patented Aquaclip® sealing system that protects the Visor up to 10m (33 ft).  You turn two orange levers open or closed when you need to insert or remove the Visor.  You can feel when the levers are secure, and there are also level indicators to let you know how far you need to turn them.  The levers have been tested to be fully functional after being open and closed 10,000 times, so there's no wearing out this case!

The vinyl portion of the case is a dark blue, with a clear front for writing and a small strip on the back of the case that is also clear.  There is a 38½" orange cable that connects inside the Aquaclip and can be removed if desired.  To top it all off, there is also a plastic beltclip so you can choose whether to have your "Visor on a rope" or at your side.


Maybe I should clean my sink more oftenAs is customary when I review a waterproof case, I test it in the VisorCentral testing sink in our secret lab.  I am happy to report that not only did the PP10 pass my submergence test, it also floats.  As I said earlier, the PP10 is water-proof up to 10m.  This isn't incredibly deep, but I doubt you'd see much with the Visor's backlight when you're deep sea diving!

Instead, this case is great for going places where your Visor can get dusty or wet.  I can take my Visor to the pool and not worry about dropping it in the water.  Tired of carrying your Visor in your hand?  Attach the cable and go hands-free.  What I really like about the PP10 is that the Visor works great in it whether you insert the Visor's top or switch it around and insert the bottom of the Visor into the PP10 first so it's easier to use when you're using the cable.  There is little protection if your Visor hits a hard surface, so don't go swinging it around too much.
