Special Honors

Hurricane Cards The Hurricane Cards go one step beyond mere water resistance by offering strong wind resistance, as well. They’re a bit thicker than most, making them moderately more difficult to shuffle, but if you want to play in a truly wet and wild environment, they may just be worth it. hurricaneplayingcards.com

Editor's Notes

September 10, 2019:

Unlike normal or even luxury playing cards, these waterproof decks ensure that you can play virtually anywhere — without worrying about damage. Currently, we still like the Bicycle Prestige Dura-Flex, and we’ve added the Bullets Two Pips as another top pick. The latter is a jumbo index choice, making it suitable for low-light conditions. But both are relatively durable and have a design that makes them appropriate for serious card games. We selected the Air Deck Starfield Warp, as well, for travelers; its small size is excellent for minimalists and ultra-light packers. Finally, we’ve opted to remove the LLF Luxury 24K. There are plenty of options with better longterm durability, and the company has stopped including a certificate of authenticity with each pack - which is a minor annoyance but an annoyance nonetheless.
