Can anybody recommend a water tight plastic pouch to keep my processors in? I am going to Europe and on a boat tour where we swim, cliff dive and snorkel. I need to take my processors off before i go in the water and wanted to find something to keep them dry. Thank you for any suggestions!

Med-El sells waterwear covers for our processors to keep them safe when exposed to water.

Hi, i have been wondering myself what i would do if i went to a beach or water to swim or just splash. I only have one processor so i would need a bag for it. I have travelled and started a collection of bags to take all my ci items, one is plastic with zippers so i would probably use  that. Ive not explored the water proof wear yet, i did receive in my kit. Perhaps others have tried it. 

I used to use ziplock bags for my various hearing aids.

Hi Dianna,

I only have a right side processor myself.  I have not tried the water wear that came with it. But I am actually going to be in Lisbon, Portugal (by myself) and I have a day trip to go swimming, boating, snorkeling and cliff diving! I definitely need to hear the instructor. But I would not chance leaving it on my head, even with the water wear. I would be too worried about the whole thing coming off.  So, I did find some small waterproof bags on Amazon that I purchases, they haven't come yet, but I hope they do the job when it comes time to take both my left hearing aid and my right processor off. I truly hope it works!!

Hi, i totally agree! While it would be great to have hearing while cliff diving, im so used to taking off glasses and hearing aids, putting in ziplock and backpack, that its what i would do. Ive river rafted so many times, lost glasses virtually tied to my head, the risk is high. I dont know if i will be cliff jumping at 65, but you never know what the water would steal from the body!!!! 

So maybe you could unpack that water proof stuff and test it out? 

Perhaps a baggie in a small backpack handed to the captain of the boat for safe keeping?
