Birzman are careful not to advertise the case as ‘waterproof’, but through our testing we didn’t see a drop of moisture inside despite using it through a couple of storms and also some very sweaty summer days. Thanks to the tough plastic material used for create it the Weather Warrior kept our valuables safe and sound for just over a tenner, and to us, that’s a bargain. Well done Birzman.
Doesn't suit larger phones
Birzman make ‘tools to keep you riding’. This ‘weather warrior’ case might just about squeeze under that umbrella, because although it isn’t a tool, I always have a mobile phone on long rides, and I expect most of you do too.
The case acts as both a weatherproof storage for your phone, and also some cash and credit cards. There’s a little internal pocket to keep everything separate, but of course the phone storage is the essential part of the product.
On that note, the design is pleasingly forward thinking, with a very large internal capacity that will fit most palm filling smart phones with around a 5” screen. To keep everything inside nice and secure, a tough plastic seal, which you press shut with your hands, never opened without our intention and takes a reassuringly tough yank to separate.
On the back, a smaller PVC window means you don’t have to remove the phone to take a photo - Great for instant social media sharing.
