Taking your phone with you while boarding?

Hey guys,

I'm afraid I'm pretty damn late with this, but better late than never, eh?

So tomorrow I'm heading for beautiful Austria and when riding I prefer to have my phone with me(especially since I'm probably riding on my own as I'm not gonna wait for my parrents when I'm down the mountain and they are at the middle...). But... it's not the cheapest phone out there(Samsung Galaxy S2) so I'd rather not shred it... No time to buy a case anymore obviously so do you guys think I could have it with me or would it be stupid? Is it possible(likely) to break it when it's in the pocket at my chest and I bite snow? And is that pocket waterproof enough?(it's an O'neill jacket so I'd expect it is, right?)

Thanks in advance, have a good season guys.

It'll probably be waterproof enough and you'll not break it. If your jacket has an internal media pocket, put it in there. I ride with an iPod touch in my pocket all the time and have a "roll an tumble" style of riding, never had issues with damage or snow getting into it.

Happy riding.

Thanks for the reaction

Well I got one of those pockets just under my chest, and since it's got one of those little holes for earphones it's probably designed for phones/mp3devices. Hasn't got a zip though, have to close it with velcro(though it feels pretty strong). But I guess I'll just take it with me.

Thanks.

EDIT:

Is putting it in a backpack perhaps a better option?

It should be ok in a chest pocket or jacket pocket as long as you stay out of the park.

Still doubting if I should play music. Doesn't it distract you? I mean, if you listen music you won't be able to hear anyone or so... :P

Good point. Well if I decide to go to the park I guess I'll just take it to the hotel. It's pretty much right next to eachother anyway. Thanks for pointing that out, might prevent me from breaking it when doing stupid stuff!

I use my iPhone for helmet tunes every time I ride, just put it in any pocket with a zipper and KEEP it zipped.

I always take my phone with me boarding, for music and co-ordinating people.

Inside jacket pocket, no case.
