The AquaPac small reviewed

Proporta.com recently provided TamsPalm with a few samples of their products. The first reviewing candidate is the AquaPac. I received a small version. The envelope was pretty stuffed(click all images for bigger versions):

Some of the packages were slightly dented, but the contents all were in good state. This is the AquqPac's shipping package:

The AquaPac itself is blue and ships with a multi-language manual that explains that one should check the pack before using and that one shouldnt use it in hot water or leave it in the sun:

An Aquapac has a transparent and a nontransparent side. The handheld can be used in the pack if the screen points to the transparent side:

The pack is locked with the two yellow handles on the clip. You have to rotate them upwards and click them in at the top in order to open the case . If you dont click them in, the case doesnt open:


The mechanics revealed look unstable, but they work better than one may beleive. I really liked the creative design and the reliability. And, you have two years of warranty anyways!

We tested the case with a Palm Vii:

a Palm V

and a Tungsten T3:

Each of the three units floated on the water and had to be pressed in order to push the pack under the water. The transparent front allows operating the handheld even under the water, the digitizers of all units worked well. However, my T3's softcase didnt fit in:

The carrying band is useful, but gets soaked and thus transfers water/gets wet. A synthetic band would have worked better...

Overall, the AquaPac is useful and sturdily built. It protected the gadgets reliably in the tests, but the problem is if the handheld is in the pack when it meets water. I prefer to keep my handhelds outside of the October/thaaquapac if there is no apparent risk of soaking. Accidents-thats why they are called accidents-usually happen when one is not prepared. So, this thing is not designed to transform a stock PDA into a ruggerdized handheld tank like the Acceca Meazura. However, if you need to temprorarily protect your handheld from water and dust, this is guranteed to satisfy your needs!

I always have my aquapack in my backpack to avoid "accidents". I ride my bike to work every day and since weather can change very quickly it can happen that I get into a heavy downpour. So when the clouds get dark I stop, slip my TH55 in the aquapack and continue- while I get soaked down to the droors, my TH55 stays dry like a baby´s butt in pampers.
Well, as you said, the aquapack is good protection against water, but not against shock. Therefore I got a neoprene case, for which I had to look for ages...why are they so uncommon for PDAs???
