For those who are seeking more kayaking gear that's actually intended to get splashed or immersed, there's a new product: the Float Phone!
Anyone who has soaked a cell phone while kayaking knows that it's so frustrating that most phones aren't waterproof. It's great to think someone's got a waterproof phone on the market. You can read about it here.
Unfortunately, the ad doesn't make it clear whether this is a cell phone or just a cordless phone for around the house. My guess is cordless. That means it might be an option for some of my neighbours with the waterfront properties to use while they're paddling around in the bay.
It also doesn't help that the Float Phone weighs two pounds (almost a kilogram). That's more than any of my paddles.
