We’ve been stocking these for a few years now but it’s worth pointing out that Topeak’s line of smartphone dry bags keeps expanding to keep pace with phone sizes.
The one pictured above fits most 5-6″ phones. We generally stock this and the one size smaller. Between the two we seem to have the majority of currently owned smartphones covered, but if you have something that’s in the really big range, like the iPhone 6 Plus, Topeak has you and your phone covered there too. We don’t currently have anything larger than the 6″ in stock but it’s easy to get any size you’d like into the store within a week or two.
We find these bags, with the provided bar mount, particularly helpful when using a mapping or GPS app while riding. We suppose they’d even be good for following email and text notifications, but we recommend you just enjoy the ride – your social or business life can wait until you reach the end of the trail 🙂
It’s also worth pointing out that the clear front allows you to ‘press’ and swipe your smart phone display effectively so it’s pretty much fully functional while in the bag, but remember that you can’t operate your phone that well with full finger gloves.
