No, another advantage of a ugo is that it fits all smartphones including the iPhone 6+, 7+, Samsung 7 edge and Note 5 with slim cases. This gives you the flexibility of upgrading to a new phone without having to invest in a new case too. If you have a very bulky case, it may need to be removed. Some of our customers have even fit as many as three phones in the case at one time (one in the window, and two in middle).
Yes, in most instances all phone functions except the rear camera can be used easily with the ugo. To ensure a truly waterproof phone case, there is not a charging port or headphone jack in the case. Many of our customers use Bluetooth headphones with their smartphone whether they are using the ugo or not. Keep in mind the ugo has room to fit a portable phone charger to help plan for those moments when your device needs that extra charge after a full day of use.
ugo wants to make sure your phone is safe which is why we have had our phone case Third Party Tested for water resistance. ugo is Certified Waterproof with a waterproof rating of IP68. We followed the lead of experts in public safety and scuba gear when we engineered the ugo pack. The ugo waterproof phone case uses the same type of zipper that is used on divers’ drysuits and hazmat public safety drysuits. The patented TIZIP® waterproof zipper is tested to hold up to 10,000 pulls. As long as your zipper is completely closed, the seal will be airtight and no water, sand, or even a germ can get in. To test if your ugo is waterproof simply ZIP, SEAL, and SQUEEZE with each use, and your ready for fun on the water!

Customers have told us that call volume is excellent with the phone in the case, for both listening and speaking. Most people have no problems making calls with the ugo in the case. You will love not having to worry about removing your phone from the case to answer a call and risk water damage to your phone or worse yet having it sink to the bottom of a lake, river or ocean.
Purchasing a ugo to protect your phone is much less expensive than the replacement cost of a phone. Here are the main reasons our customers choose ugo over the competition:
Yes the ugo comes with an adjustable and removable strap so you can wear it your way. The ugo strap is great for keeping your phone close to you and safe, and will keep your hands free for paddling, fishing, or other water sports.
The defining difference between the ugo and other competitive waterproof pouches is that many claim to have this rating but didn’t receive it through third party testing. Here is how to read and understand the IP68 Rating:
Yes! There is nothing stopping you from taking that gorgeous selfie or video on the water (or even underwater!) and sharing it with friends… No more risk of losing the selfie (and your phone) in the water.

Yes! The ugo is unlike other waterproof phone cases because it also floats! The ugo was tested to be waterproof in depths of up to 15 feet for over 24 hours. The ugo was also tested to float while weighted with 20.6 ounces, that equals the weight of 3 phones and other gear!
Yes! The ugo is actually a waterproof phone case and wallet in one! The inside has 3 spots for your credit cards and an additional zipper pocket good for housing cash or medication. The wallet phone case can fit your phone, credit cards, cash, lip balm, and keys for your boat and car. Even items like an EpiPen, inhaler, or eye drops can fit in the ugo along with a phone. Some people have fit 3 phones in the case (one in the window and two in the middle). It is perfect for when you just want to carry the essentials for a day on the water or beach. Some of our customers have coined it their “boat purse” or “boat wallet” because it suits their lifestyle on the water so perfectly.
The ugo waterproof phone case is sized so that even the largest smartphones will fit in it. We recommend those customers who use large phones such as the Samsung Galaxy J7 or iPhone 7+ with the ugo purchase a slim case as bulky cases may need to be removed.
The ugo is 7.5" long, 4.75" tall and 1.25" thick.

Yes, the ugo insulates electronics from extreme heat or cold, which helps to preserve your battery life. It is third party tested to 120 degrees F and to -20 degrees F and functioned as normal.

TIZIP® Waterproof Zippers are highly resistant to damage caused by dirt or sand - simply clean with soap and water. To clean the pack itself, simply use soapy water, and a soft brush. When the ugo pack is not in use, it is best to store with the zipper closed. Make sure the inside is completly dry before sealing for long-term storage. It is normal for the zipper to feel a little stiffer than a typical zipper since it is specially designed for scuba diving suits. Click here to learn more about caring for your ugo.
The TIZIP® Waterproof zipper on the ugo is the most technologically advanced zipper in the world! But ensuring your items stay safe and dry for many years does require a little bit of care. Before using your ugo, simply apply a small amount of the included lubricant to both sides of the U-shaped docking station at the end of the zipper (do not apply lubricant to the actual zipper). If you lose or run out of the lubricant, a simple silicon lubricant will do. Do not use the lubricant on the entire zipper - only the docking station. We recommend applying the lubricant once per month.
There is a 30 day return policy. Should you need to return your ugo for any reason please send to the following address:
