    iPhone case for cycling?

    No, I don't want to talk on the phone or listen to music while riding, but I want to take my iPhone with me on cycling trips so that I can make and receive calls when I stop alongside the road. I'm looking for a case that will protect against moisture while in my jersey pocket and shock (because I'll inevitably drop it at some point). I don't even mind having to remove the phone from the case to use it. I'm mostly looking for a reasonably priced case that will keep the phone well-protected.

    I just wondered if anyone had found something.
    Thanks in advance.

    I use a zip lock bag. If I drop my phone, I hope it breaks. It's a piece of crap, but it's insured anyways.

    Check out the Ibera range. They have a whole bunch of cases that mount on handlebars.

    Detours Digi Midge Stem bag. It's not weather proof, but it's pretty convenient to hold your iphone in a visible place and your keys and wallet can go into the zipper pocket.
    That's gonna leave a mark.

    I use a Iphone Otterbox defender case. It has a plastic cover for the whole phone plus a cover for the glass. Then there is a rubber cover that goes over that. If you are worried about moisture get the PDA Armor case.
