It is a little spacesuit for your phone. Um fousey uses some of the same theories and technology that nasa uses on their space capsules as well as their spacesuits, and this starts with an outer protective layer that reflects the sun’s rays. So it protects it from both heat and then they follow it up with an insulating layer, so it covers both ends of the spectrum, both hot and cold protection. If you’re like me, i like skiing, and i always bring my phone with me for communication as well as a video camera, so i’ll keep that in my outer shell jacket, pocket on the inside close to my body to try and keep it warm and if it’s, A really cold day, the battery will be dead by one o’clock. So i am really excited to use this this next winter, when i’m out skiing, but it is not just for the winter it’s also for the summer, and one of the features that i really like about this that i will be using shortly out on the boat, Is its ability to protect my phone from the heat and also, if i have a man overboard situation with my phone, the phone will not be lost, it will float because this is positively buoyant. It will just be floating along the surface as i turn the boat around and scoop it up. So that is the fousey xp3. They have three different models to pick from the apollo, the apollo 2 and the xp3 scene.
Here the apollo starts at 29.99 and this is a penny shy of 50 bucks, so it’s not cheap, but when you think about the 1200 phone, you stuffed in here it’s, probably worth it uh our first boat that we owned. I had a iphone 3 and we had a little incident at the boat launch where my iphone 3 went overboard and it was gone there’s no way i was finding it nowadays. The phones are pretty much waterproof by themselves, so you don’t necessarily need this to be waterproof and it’s, not because it just has a velcro closure on the top, and you get through this velcro closure with these nice big rubber handles that are easy to grip, and I can see already that they’re going to be easy to open, even with my ski gloves on and they’re pretty bulky. So as you open it up, you’ll see that it is like, i said, not waterproof, but it is fleece lined on the inside and i’ve got a iphone 12 pro max, and that fits just fine. This is the xl version, so that’s what it’s designed for they have a fit guide on the website. So you can check that out another feature. Maybe you can see in there that there’s a little velcro stash pocket that if you open that you can keep items like id card cash credit cards, which is great because when i’m skiing i usually try to bring the bare minimum.
And this is going to be kind of an all in one for me, i’ll be able to put my, i bring a credit card, my id my medical card, just in case and some cash, and then i stuff my phone in here i’m gon na put this Inside my inner pocket and it’s it’s thin enough it’s, not gon na, be an issue and it’ll stay in there, nice and warm, and i should have battery all day.
