Corsair Memory, a leading producer of advanced memory modules and some other gear aimed at both enthusiasts and professionals, announced on Monday that it begins to sell what it calls the “world’s toughest” flash memory drive, which is waterproof, shock-resistant and comes in metallic enclosure.

“Corsair has built the Flash Survivor family specifically for customers with a ‘Bring It On!’ attitude, someone who doesn’t want to worry if his/her equipment can stand up to the active lifestyle they lead. Storing your valuable information on a USB flash drive capable of weathering the storm of everyday life while ensuring your data is safe – that is what Flash Survivor is all about,”  said Jack Peterson, vice president of marketing at Corsair.

According to Corsair, Survivor flash drives, which were introduced at CeBIT in March, are water-resistant and can survive at up to 200 meter depth under 20 atmospheres pressure thanks to EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) waterproof seal. Besides, Survivor sports so-called triple-point protection against shock and impact: it is encased in CNC (computer numerical control) milled aluminum as found in aircraft part production; it uses rubber molded collar shielding; and also features outer metal tube with two end caps that provide enforcement to the hollow tube and prevents it from collapsing when abused.

The Flash Survivor family of USB drives is pre-loaded with a security application that allows users to create a hidden, password-protected partitions on the drive. The password is encrypted with 256-bit AES encryption, the most secure encryption algorithms available.

Corsair Survivor drives will be available immediately: the faster “GT” version with 8GB capacity will cost $129.99, while the typical version with 4GB capacity will be sold for $59.99. According to Corsair, Flash Survivor GT drive delivers sustained read/write performance up to 34MB/sec and 28MB/sec respectively.

It's about time! I've been waiting so long to take my USB drive with me when deep sea fishing.
