Aussie Brand Takes Topless Waterproof Mobile Phone Technology To New Touchable Heights


An Aussie mobile accessory brand is taking mobile phone waterproofing technology to brand new – previously untouchable – heights, following the release today of the world’s first topless waterproof case with touch ID access. 

Australian brand, Dog & Bone was the first world-wide to release a topless direct touchscreen waterproof mobile case, the Wetsuit waterproof rugged case on 4 July this year for optimum touch screen sensitivity, and now the brand is leading the way by releasing the first waterproof case of its kind with touch ID access.

The patent pending Wetsuit waterproof rugged case enjoys a direct touchscreen, is waterproof to two metres, dirtproof, sandproof, snowproof, shockproof, meets and exceeds Military standards to help withstand the toughest of drops to two metres, and enjoys an IP68 rating, which is the highest level of ingress protection from water and dust.

The new Wetsuit for iPhone 5s enjoys all the features developed for Wetsuit plus access to Apple’s innovative Touch ID fingerprint identity sensor.

Dog & Bone’s Founder and Director, Mr Lee Ranchod, said new developments in waterproof mobile technology is helping change the way we think and the way we live with our mobile phones.

“Touch ID is a great new feature on the iPhone 5s, and we wanted to give users an opportunity to enjoy this, whilst also still enjoying premium protection and a direct touchscreen as offered by the topless Wetsuit waterproof design,” Mr Ranchod said.

“Dog & Bone pushes the boundaries of what has been traditionally offered in a waterproof mobile case, allowing mobile phones to more and more so become an extension of our day to day lifestyle, without compromise on protection and useability.

“This is what we did when we released the world’s first topless mobile case, Wetsuit, with an optimum direct touchscreen, and this is what we are doing now with the first of its kind with touch ID access.
“Wetsuit for iPhone 5s has optimum direct touch screen sensitivity, is waterproof to 2metres, snowproof, dirtproof and shockproof and now enjoys touch ID. It’s the first to offer all these features…who says you can’t have it all!”

The Wetsuit waterproof, rugged case is waterproofed with dual sealing beads running the full perimeter of the phone avoiding the need for additional plastic membranes over the screen.

“Too often mobile users complained front enclosed cases resulted in them keying the wrong letter or sending nonsensical text messages because the film covering their phone’s screen interfered, and that the screen film appeared grubby with use,” Mr Ranchod said.

“The topless design solved this useability issue.”

“Water is in our lives every day, whether we are swimming, jet boating, bathing, cooking, eating or drinking, or bathing and it just makes sense that we protect our phone to ensure it makes it through life’s day to day adventures.”

The Wetsuit waterproof rugged case for iPhone 5s with Touch ID compatibility comes in four colour options and is available online from today (SRP $US79.95) via It will also be sold in mobile phone and sporting retailers.
