The XP10 is waterproof to about 10 feet, shockproof to about 3.5 feet (table height) and freezeproof to 14 Fahrenheit. It's not quite as rugged as other tough-guy models like the Olympus Tough 8010 or Panasonic TS1/TS2, but who among us really needs that much durability? Put on a wrist strap. Unfortunately, there are some complaints of the body being too cheaply built -- water tends to get into the display, so be very wary. It's been replaced by the XP30, which adds GPS capability, and hopefully, greater durability.
