Waterproof dash cam?

Perusing the interwebs for a dual channel waterproof dash cam. Not having much luck. I run the jeep naked most of the year and I've been known to "occasionally" drive thru mud and water without top and doors just to hear my passengers scream. Don't need a fancy 4k with bells and whistles, nor do I want a screen. Compact and discreet to hide said cameras. Any suggestions for "trail rated " dash cams?

I just checked owl cam. It isn't waterproof. I really like it but it isn't cheap. I messaged the company to see if they were going to add a waterproof cam. Awaiting response...if you find one please post here. I'm in the market as well.

I went expensive & have a dual channel 1080p* one from DoD: RC500S-2CH


Not marked as waterproof, but I have the front high, above the mirror mount, & the rear is fixed to the rear roll bar.


I run with the soft top in winter, none in summer, unless it is absolutely pissing down. I have had no issues with it yet.




*I wanted it to have enough resolution & a clear enough image to read number plates day or night. Just in case... So far it has not been needed.
