Specifications

The RingerWraps are really just like sandwich bags that you slide your phone or other device into and the bags prevent dust and water from getting on your device. The bags come in small, medium, and large sizes to fit all sorts of gadgets. A pack of five in any size will cost you $9.99.

In Use

The RingerWraps are a very simple and clever little accessory for your smartphone or your MP3 player and anything else that will fit inside the bags. These things are basically just a Ziploc bag that has an extra flap at the top with tape on it. The idea is that you can put your device in the bag and then use the tape to stick the extra bag down so it doesn't get in your way.

I had all three sizes of RingerWraps and when my iPhone 4 is out of the silicone case, it fits just right inside the medium bag. There is no getting the iPhone 4 into the medium bag with a case on or into the small bag. I wanted to leave the case on my phone so I used the large bag.

The large bag is sized so that many phones with slide out keyboards will fit inside and be able to open. With my iPhone there was about half the bag left empty. That extra bag gets into the way a bit, but you can adjust the device in the bag and stick the extra out of the way pretty well.

The bags are dead simple to use. You put your device inside, zip the seal, and use the tape to hold them down. They work, but the downside in my mind is this. A plain old Ziploc bag that you use for sandwiches will do the same thing and you can get 50 of them for $5.

The difference is that the RingerWraps have the little tape flap and are specifically made for your touchscreen devices. Both the sandwich bag and the RingerWraps work perfectly with my iPhone 4 touchscreen. In the end it's up to you, $9.99 for five RingerWraps seems steep. Shipping is free unless you live in Canada and then it will cost you another $3 to ship.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Touchscreen devices work fine in the bags

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Ziplock bags do the same thing (with less style)
 

Conclusion

The RingerWraps work just fine and do exactly what they claim to. The only thing that bothers me is that they offer little to set themselves apart from a plain old Ziploc bag. The rating reflects the expensive cost and the fact that something much, much cheaper performs the same task.
