You might be young, fighting fit and medical cover might not seem like a priority, and without focusing on the worst-case scenario — you never know what's around the corner health-wise. Then you've got to think: what about your camera full of memories? Is your phone filled with snaps, contacts and useful apps? They, of course, need protecting too; should they be lost or stolen, gadget cover means they can be replaced.
