A Pelican Box Or An Otter Box, What Do You Choose?

   It seems like everyone owns a smartphone. If you don't, I'm sure you own a wallet or keys. Keeping those precious belongings safe is a priority and there is no better way to do it than with the help of a few animals.

   Let me introduce you to the Pelican and the Otter Box. Both are manufacturers of the best dry boxes available on the market today.

So what is a dry box?
  A dry box is a storage container in which the interior is kept at a low level of humidity. It may be as simple as an airtight and watertight enclosure, or it may use active means to remove water vapor from the air trapped inside. These waterproof cases will keep your iPod, wallet, keys, ID and more safe and dry. Not only are they waterproof, they also can hold up to a good beating.

The Pelican: The Pelican company puts out a top-notch product. They offer a wide range of products.
   Pelican Products, Inc. is the global leader in design and manufacture of both high-performance case solutions and advanced portable lighting systems. Our products are used by professionals in the most demanding markets including firefighters, police, defense/military, aerospace, entertainment, industrial and consumer. Pelican products are designed and built to last a lifetime.

The Otter Box:  This one is my personal favorites. I currently own 3 of these. The smallest one i have is the perfect size for my smartphone and the largest box will hold my wallet, phone, keys, cigarettes, lighter and my fishing license. The price of an Otter Box is sightly less than the Pelican but it is equal in quality and performance.

   I encourage you to check out both brands before you purchase. Pelican offers a larger variety of specialty cases (e.g. GoPro, backpacks, flashlights). Otter Box is a great value and carries a huge selection of boxes designed for your exact type of smartphone.

   Let me know in the comment section if you have any experience with these brands or if you suggest a different company.

         It's easier to survive when your gear survives
