Showers Pass announces new ‘Cloudcover’ waterproof device covers

Posted by on July 9th, 2013 at 4:01 pm

Southeast Portland based Showers Pass continues to enter new markets. They announced a new waterproof glove line back in January. Below is a press release about their latest products…

“Showers Pass® is known for keeping cyclists protected, dry and performing year round, so it seems a natural extension that we design accessories protection to do the same,” says Kyle Ranson, president, Showers Pass®. “I used to put my phone in a plastic bag when going on long rides in the rain. That was fine until I wanted to actually USE the phone. Our Cloudcover cases are our easy, affordable answer to that, and they use everything we’ve learned about keeping active people dry whatever they’re doing, wherever they are.”

Created for the year-round rigors of all-weather use in rain, snow and mud, Cloudcover cases may have cycling DNA in their design but they’re also ideal for all water, snow and ski, cross-country sports and rugged enough to protect tablets and smartphones on family camping and hiking expeditions.

Each case is designed for a slim profile with secure welded edges to keep out rain, snow, dirt and water but also to retain touchscreen, phone call and camera functionality in all conditions. A clever dual zip-lock feature keeps every device safe from an accidental splash in the water if properly sealed.

Other Cloudcover features include a pull-tab for easy opening on-the-go, a practical side tab to attach to a keychain or mini-carabiner plus dual zip-lock for ultra waterproof protection, reflective elements for easy location in the dark and welded edges that also help to cushion any falls or blows on the trail.

Available from July 2013, the Cloudcover line includes cases for iPads for $49.99; iPad Minis for $37.50; Kindles for $37.50; smartphones (Samsung Glaxy, etc.) for $24.99; iPhone 4 &5s for $24.99; as well as dry wallet for $19.99.

Available in Late July 2013.

still disillusioned from my experience with a jacket of theirs I had and their “waterproof” claim… I got an Endura recently and it was instantly obvious how much better the waterproofing is on them…
