Waterproof smartphone cases used to be bulky, ungainly contraptions, but they’ve been trimming down lately.

That said, building a truly waterproof case is not easy (a waterproof case is defined as one that can be fully submerged underwater for at least 30 minutes). Often there are tradeoffs in creating a waterproof design, the biggest of which usually involves access to the headphone jack on your phone. They also tend to be pricey, usually costing more than $50.

In boiling down the best of what’s currently out there, I tried to provide a good mix of well-designed cases with a few more-affordable options that are step up from a Ziplock bag.

There still aren’t a ton of great waterproof options, but ever since the Lifeproof cases became so popular, plenty of competitors have jumped into the ring. If you think I missed any or have used any of the cases in the roundup, feel free to post a comment. I’ll be updating this list as more products arrive.
