It's always fun to discover innovative solutions from brands who think outside the box. AquaVault is one of those brands, with products for families that solve problems and transform everyday items into cool gear. Beach pails are a perfect example; big, bulky and a "non-essential" that's hard to carry — but not anymore thanks to AquaVault! Collapsible Packable Pails, waterproof phone cases, and a flexible "vault" for your valuables are a few products designed by AquaVault that make life on the go and family vacations with kids a little easier.
Packable Pails by AquaVault are pretty fun; generously sized play pails that collapse into a flat 2" square. These pails can be easily tucked into your beach bag or kept under the seat of your car for outings to the beach or lake. During the winter my kids play with these in the sandbox, or use Packable Pails to carry toys around the house. They are made from plastic and silicone and collapse easily enough for a child to do by themselves. Packable Pails also stack when collapsed, making them easy to store without taking up much space. My kids had a lot of fun collecting leaves this fall in their AquaVault Packable Pails. These are the best portable beach pails, the non-porous silicone surface doesn't easily get dirty and can be wiped or rinsed off.
The FlexSafe by AquaVault (who appeared on Shark Tank!) is another innovative gift idea and handy travel item. This flexible portable safe easily attaches to any handle or bar and secures your valuables. Valuables are stored inside the pouch and secured with a zipper closure. The FlexSafe has a top flap that folds over any bar while also closing the top of the pouch, and secures with a combination lock closure the front. The FlexSafe pouch is made from slash resistant material. You can easily attach this portable AquaVault safe to a stroller to store extra cash, credit cards, car keys, a wallet, expensive sunglasses, and any other small item that you don't want to lose. It a great item for international travel too. I've known a few people who have lost wallets, money, and even passports to pickpocketing thieves. As long as you have a hand on your stroller or item your FlexSafe is attached to, your valuables are safe within the slash-resistant storage pouch. The AquaVault portable storage FlexSafe is made from durable material and opens with a combination lock you can set to a combination of your choosing. The material also seems fairly waterproof and the style is universal enough to secure to strollers, bikes, wagons, boat handles, motorcycles, ATVs, and more!
AquaVault also designed a waterproof phone case that is universal enough to fit any phone, perfect for moms like me who more than once has wished I could take cute pics of my kids at the pool. We used this recently during our vacation to the hot springs and took several fun family photos. I'm excited to try taking photos underwater with this waterproof phone case. The case allows you to use your touch screen phone as normal, and is very sensitive to swiping, opening apps, and any other touch screen action on your phone. Once you slip your phone inside, the case even retains air inside so it floats in water. The opening has a ziplock closure that folds over a few times and velcros shut, so no water can leak inside. The only downside I discovered is that the case did fog up a bit at the hot springs, but that's a very specific situation. The edges of the phone case are heat sealed so no water can get inside. I have to admit, I was a little nervous sticking my $200+ smart phone under water, but I quickly discovered that my phone was completely safe within AquaVault's waterproof phone case, and no water got inside at all! This phone case also has a tether for hanging around your neck. I'm excited to use this phone case to take family photos on the boat this summer! AquaVault's waterproof phone case is also idea for skiing, snowboarding, and any moisture-related activities. The phone case also protects the phone within the scratch-resistant cover that can hang around your neck, perfect for tucking under your jacket during all your snow sport adventures.
Grab some of these innovative gift ideas for your own family! Your teenager will love an AquaVault waterproof phone case for taking videos at the ski slopes and terrain park, and mom will have peace of mind knowing valuables are safely attached to the stroller, so she can focus on the baby inside it.
