We tested a DJI Spark case that claims to be waterproof. Did it leak? Check out the review video to find out!

I bought this case when it first came out.  For the money, it's probably the best case available.  I am super pleased with it.

Awesome! I agree, it's not waterproof, but it is water resistant, which is good. And it's a great case for the price! Thanks for the comment!

You hit it with a pressure spay. Most rain is not hitting the case in a pressured manner. Not a good real world test I'm afraid.

Was it the hose or the dunking??? Can't tell from your test.
Should have opened it after the hose, but you didn't want to divulge your secret> (Tissues)
You get what you pay for.

I agreed with you. I believe that users won't treat their case in that way. And it can prevent your spark from rain and unexpected hit. Thanks for the good commend.

True, but it really held up much better than I would have expected in spite of being sprayed and dunked. Taking a test to the extreme will reveal the faults quickly. After this review, I would be confident this case would be fine for rainy day use.

The GPC case on Amazon is fully rated for dunking in water. It's slightly cheaper on their GPC website too.

Not a waterproof zipper and there is no "O" ring.

If you want ultimate protection for water and impact then a "pelican" style case is better but at a price

if it’s advertised as WATERPROOF then it is a practical test as they are seeing if the advertisement is correct
