Peli 0915 SD And Micro SD Case

I have been using the Peli 0915 memory card case for quite some time now. It is used as the main storage for all of my SD and micro SD cards when they are not in a camera.

Case Features Include:

Water resistant seal
Stores 8 SD and 16 Mini-SD memory cards (not included)
Removable insert liner absorbs shock and protects memory cards
Made of tough Polycarbonate resin

The case is as well built as all other Peli products. Waterproof rating is IPX4 which is essentially splash proof and can hadle being out in the rain. If dropped in the water the chances are the case will leak. That said SD cards will stand up to a fair bit of abuse including being dunked in water with little in the way of damage. For me it’s all about keeping them in one pace and that dust/dirt is kept well away from them.

Keeping Warm

Staying both warm and dry makes any kayaking adventure that much more pleasant. I’ve been kayaking for over 25 years now and am amazed how much the kit has moved on during that time. Way back then getting soaked to the bone was pretty much a standard feature of paddling even if you didn’t swim. Even though staying dry is much easier and therefore makes keeping warm itself so much easier it’s important to get your insulation layers right.

I tend not to feel the cold as most folk but I still pick my insulation layers really carefully to make sure that I not only stay nice and warm but that I do not over heat. I personally find overheating way worse than being too cold.
