There are plenty of waterproof action cameras on the market but most don’t offer the features of a DSLR. Few high-end DSLR cameras can get all wet and wild. The Outex Waterproof DSLR Covers can solve the problem.
These hermetically sealed wetsuit housings will fit almost any DSLR and lens setup, and keep the camera and rig dry up to a depth of 10 meters. This is a modular system as well so it can work with a variety of bodies, lenses and flashes and grow with a user’s set up. Video after the jump
Having a light jacket on a cool day is never a bad idea, but having a jacket that can light up is a great idea for those who run or cycle after dark. The Badger 360° LED Jacket incorporates small LED technology to help illuminate the jacket to ensure that wearer’s can be seen.
The creators – who have launched a Kickstarter campaign to develop the jacket – have embedded it with LED string that is low current, waterproof and flexible. In addition this jacket is made of polyester material that can help wick away moisture, while providing multiple pockets for mobile phone, ID and other can’t leave at home ideas. The hood of the jacket can be tucked away when not in use. And since batteries do run down, there are even reflective stripes along the zipper.
Best of this jacket is even waterproof – and once you remove the battery – it can be submerged in water to be washed. Video after the jump
There are plenty of rugged cameras on the market, but the Nikon Coolpix AW110 Camo Camera stands out with its camouflage design that looks practically read for combat. It is a truly go-anywhere camera, and is waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof, while not being light on the features. It offers built-in Wi-Fi for fast sharing of photos, while built-in GPS tagging records the location of every shot. It features a 16MP sensor and also doubles as a Full HD 1080p video camera.
Who cares if the gray skies clear up when you have the Showers Pass’ Refuge jacket on? Designed for outdoor use, including bike commuting or hiking, this jacket utilizes Elite three-layer performance fabric to offer protection in the rain.

There are front handwarmer pockets and even a chest pocket with audio port.
It also features water-resistant Aquaguard Vision zippers, 360-degree 3M Scotchlite reflective trim and two light loops.

This could be the jacket for those times when it is raining or just looking like it could rain.
If you were to take a camera on a climb to the top of Mount Olympus the one to take might just be the Olympus TG-2. This 12MP rugged camera features a 3.0-inch OLED screen to preview your shots, while the built-in GPS tagging can help keep track of where you were on your various adventures. The camera can’t handle a fall from the top of a mountain, but it will survive drops up to seven feet. It is also freeze proof and crushproof.

There are plenty of waterproof headphones and even waterproof MP3 players available for swimmers, but what about those who just have to use their iPod device? The answer could be the Waterfi, a waterproofed iPod Shuffle. The latest version of the Watefi features dual layer waterproofing technology, which is basically covering an iPod Shuffle with a rubber insulator. This reportedly provides some shockproof along with making the device waterproof. This can keep the player watertight up to 100 feet.
So basically this is just a stock iPod Shuffle that is covered in rubber, but for those who can’t live without their music even in the water, this could be the way to go.

Since the form factor on the iPhone has largely remained the same – until the larger screen and thinner body of the iPhone 5 – case manufacturers have had great success offering cases for the single-model. Android and other smartphones, however, have very different form factors, and therefore don’t have as many options. This is why it’s great to see the MarineCase II, a universal-sized waterproof hard case for large screen smartphones.
The MarineCase II is IP58 certified against sand and water intrusion. It protects against water, sand and dust. It is shock and impact resistant against scratches, dents and screen shatter. The case can go up to 20 feet – or six meters – under water and capture video while being submerged. Manufacturer Concord Keystone makes the MarineCase II with a high-impact polycarbonate, integrated with a silicone surface for even more protection. The case is shock and impact-proof for drops and bumps. Read the rest of this entry »
