Waterprrof case for swimming or sailing
Has anyone had any success in finding a good waterproof case for the ipod that incorporates a waterproof headphone jack?

I'm hoping to use the ipod for swimming so would also be after some waterproof headphones.

i saw one a while ago for cd players that had a short (read:3 inch) extension cord going from inside to outside of the pouch that was completely watertight....dont remember the name though

How exactly do you plan on making it water tight, and offering a junction for headphone's to connect into?

read the above post, if you were to make a small extension cable, it would be possible to seal around it so that just the plug would be exposed.

edit: for around the headphones maybe a rubber gasket or a sleave that would go around the jack extension and the headphone plug?

There is a case maker in the UK that has a case that might work for you (the wire sealing cases). I don't know about waterproof earphones.

Thank you
Thanks everyone for your help. The waterproof website had the solution I was looking for with an excellent waterproof bag and waterproof headphones.

I saw one at our local kayak outfitters shop, it was for a cd player so a bit large, but it would probably work. Glad to know I'm not the only nut who wants to bring theirs in the water LOL. I never did but may get that case for kayaking next summer. :)

I think this was the one I saw, though hard to tell. I'm sure it was a typical drybag rollover seal rather than the one that a_nona_mouse posted above.

Yep, I'd say that's it. I found the description on the website of our local shop but with no pic.
