I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Droid Razr. It is advertised as "water resistant," although there are videos out there showing folks holding it under a running faucet. I got one back in February and have gotten it pretty wet a few times over the summer, with no problem. I've seen many a phone lost to ziplock-type bags, so I never recommend them. I usually carry my insured Droid Razr in a small nylon drybag.

I got one of these on a Groupon deal... used it a couple times, works very good. Watertight, the only down side is it is a bit bulky, but all products will be.

Regarding the double bag, please be aware that condensation may form from the ambient water vapor inside the bag and inside the phone itself. Stored in a place where it will get warm (and that's nearly any place during warmer months) it's likely that some water will precipitate into liquid.

A tip from a wreck diver I know is to fill the inner bag with rice and press the phone into it, then close the seal and insert into the true dry bag or case. The rice will absorb all the liquid that may come from the inside of the bag. And it gives some extra protection if the outer bag is breached from a crash that could tear the inner bag.

It's a bit belt and suspenders but it works and costs nearly nothing.

I have a good waterproof cell phone case here http://www.gadgetsgo.com/Dry-Corp-DC-13-covers-under-water-proof-cellular-pouch.html. It comes in a clear, flexible and waterproof bag that let me use all of my phone's features like camera and listen to music while keeping my phone dry.

The last post is SPAM.
Try your new setup with some Kleenex inside the first time instead of a phone.
When it gets wet you will be glad. Many setups are not intended to slam into the water repeatedly like our sport.
Dan Weiss bag of rice is also a good thing to have in your vehicle. If the phone gets even slightly wet, wipe it and put it in the rice straight away. I have seen phones dropped overboard saved with this simple trick.
