    Has anyone been able to dive more than 20 feet with their IP5? I have a Life Proof and I dive but I normally go around 30-40 feet with the phone in a wetbag just not to have the lifeproof leak?

    Just curious what other divers are doing with their 5's while they dive?

    The only waterproof equipment that I would ever trust for my iPhone is Liquipel. Any case that claims to be waterproof could easily form a leak.

    Yeah and since the LP case is only good to 22 Feet, I place it in a leakproof and airproof Diving Pouch before getting into the water.

    So far it seems to be double duty but works well, however anything below 30 feet, iPhone photos are blah in murky water, but we will see when I go to the Bahamas how well the camera works at 20-40 feet.

    I use this one with the LifeProof case on the phone, also helps in case the phone floats out of my BCD...
