Showers Pass CloudCover iPhone Case

05 Sep

I take my iPhone with me on every ride—in rain, snow, mud, sand or beautiful sunshine. There are several good phone cases on the marker that will keep your iPhone dry while you are riding (or running for that matter), but the best case I’ve found so far is the Showers Pass CloudCover iPhone Case for the iPhone 4 or iPhone 5.

Showers Pass CloudCover Dry Wallet For iPhone

The Showers Pass CloudCover iPhone Case is a weatherproof case with welded edges and a dual zip-lock closure that will keep your phone happy and dry all day long. I have an iPhone 5 and always keep it in a thin polycarbonate case—and even with the case on my phone fits perfectly into the CloudCover case. In addition, the CloudCover case fits into my middle jersey pocket with room to spare.

The CloudCover case has a tab on one side so you can attach a key chain or mini-carabiner to it. The case also has reflective piping so if you keep it in your panniers it will be a lot easier to find in low-light. The design of this case also serves to cushion your phone if it should happen to hit the ground.

One of the features I like best about the CloudCover case is that you can still use the iPhone camera without having to take the phone out of the case. I’ve experimented with this option several times and still cannot believe how well it works! As long as you are photographing in bright sunlight it is nearly impossible to tell that the phone was in the case when you took the photo. However, in low-light situations it is easier to tell the difference. Unfortunately, if you attempt the use the flash while taking a photograph the light will bounce off the clear plastic cover and ruin your photo. One other note: if you have the iPhone 5 you will need to remove whatever protective case you have before you put it in this case or the phone will sit too high in the case to take a picture.

Showers Pass also makes CloudCover cases and wallets for several other electronic devices, including: iPad, iPad Mini, Kindles, and a general purpose wallet for smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy. While the iPhone case and the generic smartphone case are available in either black or silver, the other cases only come in black.

The Showers Pass CloudCover iPhone Case retails for $25 and if you ride in inclement weather that price is a steal! If your local bike shop does not carry this product you can order if it from the Showers Pass website or Amazon.com.

    Thanks for reviewing this! Looks like a grea product. I’ve been meaning to get something like this for a while now, due to all the times my smart-phone(s) became soaked while running in heavy rain. Since this doesn’t happen every day, I keep forgetting to do something about it, though the malfunctioning of my phone is an occasional reminder.

    Have been using a Lifeproof case, which has been so-far, so-good, but it doesn’t have a handy tab for clipping onto gear or self like the CloudCover has. Good tip.

    I have just been given a Showers Pass CloudCover for my i phone to use and review. Should be ideal for cycling on the coast, good review!

    This looks great. Do you think an iPhone with a case on it would fit, or would you have to take the case off?
