If your lifestyle or work field takes you to extreme destinations, you should consider any of these water proof drives for storing your data. From the flash based ones, to the hard drive bullet proof enclosures and even to the DIY, it is good to know that your data will be safe when your trip is done.

The Centon DataStick is a portable flash memory disk that, like others of its kind, quickly goes into a USB port. Plug it in, and you're ready to store away your files. We love the ruggedness this flash drive has. It looks rugged and it performs that way. Whereas other cheaper USB flash memory disks break with just a single accidental drop, this durable one keeps on working. We really think the silicone, shock-resistant housing is very tough and it can withstand the kind of abuse that constant traveling entails. In addition, thanks to its leak-proof cap design, the Centon DataDisk is waterproof for up to 1.8 meters deep. So even if you inadvertently dropped the device in your soup or whatnot, it will still work as if nothing had happened.

if you happen to be a little rough with your PC hardware, this is the perfect drive for you. We like that they look like they can take a beating and even more. Water resistant up to 3 feet for up to 30 minutes and they can be dropped without having any problems. Many sizes are available, like 250GB, 320GB and even 750GB.
