Waterproof Electronics - Navy Seal style

It is reported that Navy SEALS commonly use two condoms to seal firing assemblies for their underwater explosives, having thus coined the term: "Dual Waterproof Firing Assemblies". This instructable is a tribute to their ingenuity, and it expands on the concept of the waterproof condom, in order to make a waterproof housing for my digital camera (and other consumer electronics).

It starts with a humoristic video, detailing how I bought the condoms (not as simple as it sounds!), and showing the building process, as well as some of the uses for the housings.

Just how deep are you planning on riding your bike in the ocean?
For normal riding, zip lock bags work pretty well for me with less hassle.

I've been doing this for years. I put my cell phone in one as soon as I got it.

Totally agree, but figured if someone had some expensive and water sensitive electronic equipment they were worried about carrying with them on the bike this might help.

Zip-Loc freezer bags, though, are a wet commuters friend

I use a Sea-to-Summit SilNylon dry bag as a pack liner. That keeps all my stuff dry as a bone.
