    Hi guys,

    Just got an Incredible this summer and am still running naked with it.. However, for snowboarding, I use a helmet with built-in headphones and need some way to protect my phone.

    Rather than use my iPod (since it is a HDD), I used to use my old enV Touch to play music through, but now I'm a bit hesitant as the Incredible is quite a bit more sophisticated and expensive.

    Is there a case that can help protect it while snowboarding if I choose to go this route? I was looking at the Innocase Rugged...

    What kind of protection are you looking for? I'm assuming waterproof protection?

    I'll use the same protection I use while boating/kayaking. Put it in a ziplock bag :D

    Your fingers still work through it, too.

    I do alot of snowboarding too. I don't see a way to protect my Incredible while I'm out. I would never take it out onto a park. Doing jibs and having to bail will just crush the phone. Especially in a badly made kicker.

    If you are riding fresh pow pow, I don't see a problem with the phone just being in your inside pocket of your jacket.

    Remember to put it in airplane mode if you have no signal in the mountain or phone will be dead in 30 to 60 minutes.

    For park riding, I take my Ipod shuffle and it can take a beating.

    Upon reading Volcom's post, I may wrap mine in bubblewrap, too...
