Ever wished you could find a Ziploc bag the size of your cell phone? Your dreams have come true with the debut of RingerWraps.

Developed by Cleverwraps, the protective, high-grade poly plastic bags can be zipped up and then taped up to protect your mobile device from water, dirt, mud, sand, and even sunscreen. This would be especially helpful when going to sporting events outside where the weather is might be a bit damp, or when keeping that smartphone in your ski jacket when hitting the slopes.

Cleverwraps promises that the enclosed handhelds will remain fully-functional - including the keyboard and Bluetooth - even behind the plastic. Voice calls probably won't be as crystal clear, but they should still be audible.

RingerWraps are shipping now for $9.99 per package. Each set contains five sleeves and are available in three sizes: small, medium and large. Additional sleeves for eReaders and Tablets will be introduced in December.

    the Ziploc Snack bags for $2.50 for 50. Same size, same material, just cheaper.

      Ziploc's are not the same size as the cell phones and therein lies the problem. RingerWraps are custom fitted to any phone, even flip phones, and work great. I used them all last summer at the beach and will take them to the mountain when the snow starts falling. Once you get a phone damaged by moisture, a $200-$300 new phone is a real bummer.

    In response to voice calls not being crystal clear: I have been using RingerWraps for several months, I put one every time I go to the pool or out on a jet ski, and I have never had any issue at all with call quality. I usually keep the RingerWrap on all day an have no issues with any of the features on my iPhone 3GS (I use a small size wrap).

    Ziploc snack bags won't work for my kids' flip phones. And, they don't fit my Incredible well.....too sloppy for texting and touchscreen. Would need to carry some scotch tape.

      @Smartmom As far a not fitting your incredible, use a sandwich bag. Did you look at these on their website? Even for the flip phones they are just ziploc bags. In fact if you look a little closer then really appear to be the cheaper store brand with the thinner zip closure.
      I just wish I had thought of repackaging ZipLocs. Maybe I should start a beach concession. "Individual Cell Phone protection devices, $2 each."
