Waterproof iPad Cover Review

Being a mum, for me generally means that I don't get a lot of free time. Two of my favourite things to do when I do manage to get a bit of 'me time' are reading books and taking a nice long hot bath. However I tend to read my books on the iPad these days and I don't trust putting this anywhere near my bath water, I would feel like I'd lost a limb if it were to fall in.

The lovely people at John Lewis kindly sent me a waterproof cover for my iPad to review, would this mean I would be able to do my two favourite things at the same time?

The cover is made by Go Travel and has a RRP of £14.99, designed to protect your iPad from from any damage in up to depths of 1 metre of water although I wasn't brave enough to test it to these depths.

The product itself is easy to use. Simply place your iPad inside and do up the three separate seals, making sure that you here each one click and that there are no bumps along the seals. You then tightly roll over the top and velcro closed.

The clear cover allows you to carry on using your iPad without any disruption and because it is sealed so well, it doesn't steam up at all. You are able to use the touch screen with ease still, allowing you to email, read, play games etc. And with an intergrated earphone jack you are also free to listen to music and watch films.

As you can see from the picture below, the iPad fits into the shell perfectly, no struggling to get it in and out before and after use.

I think this waterproof cover would certainly come in handy for when you are lounging around the pool on holiday, no need to worry about people splashing water around you. 

Overall it is a clever piece of kit that my well come in handy for some of you!!
