The rugged RB19 comes packaged in the usual all clear, plastic package. It has a small cardboard inlay with a surfer as a backdrop. This seems like a good choice as A-DATA advertises the RB19 to be water proof. The back simply lists all the above mentioned features in multiple languages. On a small note, A-DATA actually translated certain English terms word for word into German, in which these do not make any sense anymore.
