    Hi guys, I would like to know if there are any cases I could use for my Lumia 1520 as protection from extreme use like dragonboat race, trekking and other risky outdoor sports? I've been traveling a lot lately and doing dragonboat race at the same time but I couldn't bring my phone out there because I'm afraid water might splash on it or when I'm in the mountain and it fogs, I couldn't protect it from moist, mud or dusts. I think its such a waste if I wouldn't be able to use Lumia 1520's awesome camera for those memorable experiences. And I don't wanna buy a goPro because if that's the case I would've bought a Lumia 535 instead and a separate go-pro camera. Thanks.

    You have only a small amount of options here and unfortunately they may not work for you as it depends on what you require exactly.

    You can get waterproof pouches that protect against water, example - Amazon.com: Waterproof Case for Nokia Lumia 1520 / 1320 / Samsung Galaxy Note 3 / Mega 5.8 / LG G PRO 2 (Black) + Sumaclife Wisdom * Courage Wristband: Cell Phones & Accessories

    There is also Outerbox - Otterbox Pursuit Series 20 & 40 waterproof dry box - Review - Coolsmartphone

    If you're looking for a case to protect your phone you can look for something like this - Lumia 1520 Case Review: Minisuit Rugged Kickstand Case | Windows Central

    There's no specific waterproof case unfortunately.

    Obviously the better the protection, the less chance you can actively use the phone while in the case.

    I like Pelican Case and trust the brand. The 1060 would hold a 1520 and maybe one other small item. You can get foam inserts that are trim to fit as a cradle. Pelican cases are very waterproof, splashproof, dustproof, gritproof. Drop it in the water and it floats...

    My 1520 is in an Amzer dual layer case with kickstand, but for extra protection when I bring it snowmobiling etc., I put it this hard waterproof case. S3 Hard Cases Water Proof Dry Boxes - T-3000 T3000.2, T3000.3, T3000.4, T3000.1. S3 Dry Boxes.

    This dry box, from S3, is the only box I could find that had ideal dimensions for my 1520, so it isn't able to bang around inside. It has a nice firm foam inner liner. I got the yellow one to match my phone.
