Clutch the Wave

Whether you spend your day hitting the surf or making a splash in school, you can come prepared to face any wave when you pack small, easy-to-lose items in this sleek and stylishly stitched pouch. Made from upcycled, excess wetsuit material that otherwise would have been discarded, this cushy nylon neoprene protects cellphones and touchscreens from scratches and moisture. With its slim profile and expert stich work, this cool clutch provides a smart way to pack the little things to avoid getting in hot water. Made in China.

The goal of upcycling is to prevent wasting potentially useful materials by making use of existing ones. This reduces the consumption of new raw materials when creating new products. Reducing the use of new raw materials can result in a reduction of energy usage, air pollution, water pollution and even greenhouse gas emissions.

      This is a great iPad case. It's on the roomy side, at least for the iPad 2. But that means that it comfortably accommodates the magnetic iPad cover as well as the device itself. Keeps my iPad safe, and looks great doing it! Plus, it's up cycled. What could be better?

          This product is used every day and was well crafted. Magnetic button makes tablet secure yet easily accessible. Made up of materials that would normally be disposed of in a landfill. What is not to like!

                I already have a back cover and film cover for my iPad so I've only been looking for a sleeve. This one was just what I wanted...fun, bright colors, pliable so I can fold it out of the way and the best part - it's washable! So many covers get dirty so fast, this one will stay fresh and looking new for a long time!

                Erin is always on the lookout for stylish, colorful accessories, and these cases made a real splash! Do you know a SCUBA fan, surfer, or ocean enthusiast who would love to get the Upcycled Wetsuit Envelope Sleeve as a gift?

                I would love a wetsuit case where I could actually use the touchscreen (wetsuit material with clear plastic on the front), but with this you still have to pull the item out. That's just cumbersome.

                I like how you are recycling old wetsuits and that you can get it in 3 different sizes. I've heard so many people take their phones to the beach and it gets destroyed by a wave! But can't we make it in the USA? Love the idea!

                Like the recycling concept but not that they are made in China.

                I would buy because of the cool color combos. I have similar boring black cases that cost as much and that were not from recycled wetsuits. These are stylish.

                I personally don't like it, but a water resistant laptop sleeve is useful

                I like the concept but I'm concerned about it being made in China. What kind of labor standards does the company follow? I'd prefer something made in the USA.
