Sometimes I carry mine in my chest jacket pocket when I think I might get in to some Gun battles.. better to take one in the phone than the heart I say.

I have a Galaxy as well, and I also use a ziplock. If you use the sandwich bags (as opposed to the freezer bags) you can actually control your phone and have a conversation without taking it out of the bag.

I also have a case for my phone, so I don't know about durability if you hug a tree at speed...


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

Carry mine for boarding as well for tunes. It can also be used for emergencies situations as well. I have an Otterbox for the phone so it can take a bit of a beating and adds some waterproofing as well.

I just got a Galaxy S2 and I just swap my sim card into my old 3GS. I destroyed the glass on my 3GS in Keystone this year on a rail, so it can be broken. I even had it in an otterbox.

And otterbox + 3GS is my typical setup.

I always have my phone with me, but the cold will DRAIN THE SHIT out of your battery.

If you keep it close to your body (chest pocket), it should be fine. I use an iPhone for music all day - after 7 hours, typically I left the hill with ~91% battery.
