    Weatherproof & robust iPhone 5 case?

    I'm looking for a robust iPhone 5 case to fit to my stem or bars so I don't have to keep fishing into my pocket each time I'm at a new junction.

    It's got to be well designed, weather proof and not bust the bank.

    Any suggestions? I've seen the Wahoo case which looks great to link in with HRM etc but seems a bit bulky.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    For riding, I've been using this one

    Topeak RideCase for iPhone 5 at REI.com

    Using the stem mount works well, I can see what info I need etc. The case itself is plastic that works well for holding the phone in, comes with a plastic cover that will work for most light rainy weather. (But then again I live in Southern California, we don't have weather here)

    Lifeproof?

    Might be in the 'break the bank' category

    I use a Seidio Obex on my Galaxy S4, if their iPhone model is as good, I'd highly recommend it. Robust, not too bulky, waterproof several feet underwater, no complaints commuting year-round in Seattle rain.

    It's nice looking and pretty slim, just not too sure about using an extra bag to keep it water proof. How do you manage that?

    Yeah I live in the UK so needs to be pretty waterproof, most of the time!

    Looks real nice, though couldn't see a bar mount - do you have one for yours?
