Gepe Card Safe Extreme Watertight Case - for Four Compact Flash (CF), Smart Media (SM), Memory Stick (MS), Multi Media (MMC) or Secure Digital Cards (Ice Blue)

You Pay: $23.95

The Gepe Card Safe Extreme (Ice Blue) is a watertight case made to store memory cards such as Compact Flash, Smart Media, Memory Stick, MMC or SD cards. Inside, the memory cards are protected against humidity and dust, as well as electrostatic charge. Four compartments offer space for several different memory cards, and grip each of them tightly.

The Card Safe Extreme uses insert material to protect the memory cards from being erased or damaged due to electrostatic effects. The card holder also has special viewing windows so you are able to see which space is taken by which card, even if the box is closed. This makes the organization of your cards easier. In addition, it is weatherproofed and it floats in water, and the design of the lock makes using the Card Safe a snap, even when wearing gloves.

The Card Safe Extreme has been tested and certified as European IPX-7, which means it is protected against immersion in water (immersion for 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter).

Polycarbonate, anti-static inner material is used to manufacture this media case.

    I left this case in my lower leg pocket and sent it through the wash and spin cycle, the regular cycle, and when I pulled it our from the bottom of the washer I was very nervous... I opened it it looked and felt dry... let my cards air out over night just in case. When I went to download NO PROBLEMS still using the same cards. This case really is watertight. Awesome. Saved me several hundred $$ in memory cards.

    Only drawback is that the cards fit in very snug, if you are trying to change cards really quick its hard, you need two hands to get a CF Card out. Well worth the protection.

    Not a slim profile but I take the safe keeping every day over a slim pocket line.

    Although this case looks indestructible and water proof, it broke the tooth on one of the plastic channels on my BRAND NEW compact flash card. The cards fit so snugly into the firm rubber casing that they are hard to get in and out. The whole point of me purchasing the GEPE was to protect my cards, not destroy them. Definitely sending back for a different case.

    Gels Extreme card safe.

    By The Teal Guy.

    from Ocean City, New Jersey

    Comments about Gepe Card Safe Extreme (Blue):

    I own several of these Gepe Extreme card safes in different colors. Color coded to what's in them: Onyx grey for my Compact flash cards, Neon yellow/green for my SDHC cards, Ice Blue in either card size for any Delkin cards & Red for exposed cards in either size. You can read GB size threw the clear section on the cases, they can hold different size cards in one case at the same time & they are rugged & they are waterproof! (Fortunately I haven't tested the complete waterproofness of these cases yet.)
    Cards are tight fitted. But: I wipe down (& dry) the inner lining with dive suit vegetable grade silicone. Which helps in removing them. A little expensive & prices vary. But, very well made & I feel the best protection available for expensive flashcards & SDHC-SDXC cards.

            I would not consider any other storage device for my Lexar 1000x high-speed SQD's and Lexar 1000x high-speed CF used on my D4. It is 'mega' strong, thus lightweight; it is water tight with rubber seal "a la Pelican" (love Pelican cases).

            If you want peace-of-mind for you expensive SQD's, CF and SD's - search no more. This product accepts all types/sizes of SQD's, SD's and CF's, as it has molder rubber fittings inside.

            Haven't used this much yet. It's hard to open maybe because it has to be. Not sure the cards will be easy to get out of it. Nice that it holds CF and SD cards both and at the same time. This might end up being a stay-at-home solution for my cards.

              Lightweight, strong and durable and good price. Like clear windows so you can see what cards are inside. I turn brand toward window to indicate fresh card...turn brand toward inside to indicate used card...can see what I have available at a glance. Like different colors available. Keep different capacity flash cards in different colored cases. Know which cards I have instantly.

                      Great design that allows many different types of cards to be securely stored in one case.

                      Pelican cases are card specific and and bulkier.

                      Clear windows allow easy visibility to see what cards you currently have inside the case.

                      Locking mechanism still strong after months of daily usage.

                        Strong case. I've been using them for years. I use a 1ds MK 2 which work with both cf and sd cards, this case allows me to store 4 of each safely. I have purchased 3 of them over the years and never had a problem.

                        Some may find the cards are too tightly secured and tough to take out of the case ( especially the SD cards which are not as strong as CF cards) learn to be gentle with removing SD cards.

                        Good little product. Third one I have bought. The only issue is with CF cards, the grip is very tight so it can be tough to take the cards out without a coin or somthing else to leverage under them.

I have used these cases in rugged environments from Africa, Haiti, Brazil, and rural Montana. I'm very pleased.

                              I needed something to keep my CF cards organised and safe while I travel. This is perfect for me in that it holds the cards securely, is waterproof (the Pelican version is not), tough, and I can keep it tethered to a bag (there's a small loop for attaching a lanyard or similar) so it'll never get misplaced.

                              Some have noted that the fit of the cards is really tight, and they're right. Perhaps a little too tight in that you need to really pry them to get them out. Having said that, I don't think the cards will sustain any damage from this, and I think the fit is slowly loosening the more I use the case. I'm happy with it the way it is, at least they'll never fall out.

                              Something not mentioned in the description is that you can actually carry 4 SD cards AND 4 CF cards at the same time. The two card types occupy separate space within each compartment, meaning they'll both fit in there at the same time. This isn't useful for me, but could be really handy for people using two camera types, or a camera which accepts either card type.

                                Had an experience of washing my CF card so bought this to protect. So far it works. This is my second case which somehow seems to work better than my first one (same brand but grey color). The difference was the snap closure. The blue one is not just a hanging plastic on your case. Cant quite understand why they have to be different and now that I realized this, I will buy more of the blue ones.

                                  Although this case looks indestructible and water proof, it broke the tooth on one of the plastic channels on my BRAND NEW compact flash card. The cards fit so snugly into the firm rubber casing that they are hard to get in and out. The whole point of me purchasing the GEPE was to protect my cards, not destroy them. Definitely sending back for a different case.

                                    Just got this case but I have to say it looks to be very well made. It feels substantial, locks securely and finishing appears decent enough.

                                    I'm only storing CF cards in the unit right now and the fit of each card is very tight but perhaps this will loosen over time. Would recommend this to anyone!

                                          I just used it for the first time on a shoot and I loved it. Feels very durable and air tight. The only downside is it is a little hard to get CF cards out of it, but I feel that the molding will loosen up a little over time. Definitely planning on buying another.
