on July 10, 2017
I used a Dry Pak waterproof case in Bonaire for a week - no problems. On my second trip I reached around and found the purse missing - swam to shore, and sure enough I had an empty strap around my neck and arm. I searched the water and the shore and couldn't find it, so my credit cards and vehicle keys were gone. A Bonaire Stinapa Ranger came into the parking lot - I explained my predicament. He called Budget Rental for me, and within an hour they pulled in with another vehicle, and drove my first one away. I had other credit cards in the safe in the room, but ended up having to pay $300 for a key replacement on the vehicle.
This has happened to others that use the Dry Pak case - the carabiner that connects the case to the strap comes open. The solution is just tie a piece of string around the strap and into the slot on the case - a second means of securing it.
The rest of this story is I got a call from BarclayCard 63 days later. Someone picked up my water purse on the beach near Quintana Roo, on the Yucatan Peninsula, and called the number on the card. It had floated over 1200 miles without sinking!
