What do you mean by '100 per cent waterproof'?

We mean that no water will get in if you seal the bag according to the instructions, don't exceed the stringent conditions under which our bags are tested and keep it protected from getting snagged or pierced.

How tough are the materials?

Bloody tough. If in doubt ask the strong men who wept when putting them through the British Standards Testing programme. To be honest we didn't actually see them cry but like to believe they sobbed a little in a quiet corner.

What quality control is involved with your products?

The last thing we want is for our products to let anyone down. Our business depends on it and so do our own precious electronics - because we use them ourselves. That's why every production line and every batch is thoroughly tested not just in a lab, but out in the real world.
