WD's Nomad Rugged Case (Black) is a tough, solid solution for holding and protecting your My Passport Hard Drive wherever you may take it. Compatible with only My Passport hard drives, the exterior of this case is made of a hard polycarbonate and the inside is made of a shock absorbing elastomer cushion. In addition, the case closes with a heavy-duty latch and has a silicone lining to fully seal the case from any liquids. With all of these safeguards, the case can withstand a drop of up to 7' or 2.53 m, 20 oz spills, as well as dust and dirt. With a carabiner-ready ring, you can attach the case to your bag and roam, worry-free. On the hike, on the bike, on the road trip, around town, or even at work, you have a case that'll protect your hard drive and its data.

Impact Resistant
Designed for the photographer, adventurer, traveler, or mom on the go, this durable case is built with impact-resistant, polycarbonate plastic on the outside and a shock-absorbing, elastomer cushion on the inside to protect the drive inside from scratches and from drops as high as 7' or 2.13 m* 1
Moisture and Dust Resistant
The heavy-duty latch securely closes the case and the silicone lining provides a tight barrier against liquid spills, moisture, dust, and dirt
Convenient Opening for the USB Cable
With an opening for your drive's USB connector, you don't have to take the drive out of the case to use it. Just plug the USB cable in, and it's ready to go and fully protected. The opening also features a unique sealing cover to keep moisture out when the drive is not plugged in
Carabiner-Ready Ring
Attach a carabiner, cable, or nylon strap to the molded exterior ring and hang the case from your backpack or purse for added easy accessibility

      Great case, got it for my hard drive to protect it from the rain when I'm out. I was curious as to how well the water was sealed out so I made a little test of my own. Held it under water for about a minute, no signs of water inside. So I kicked it up a notch and bumped the time up 5 minutes, still no water inside. I think what I love the most about the case is that it's made to float, so let's say you did accidently drop it in water, you're not going to have to go diving for it.

      As far as the shell itself goes, it is very sturdy. I have a hard time thinking of how something would break the case. Inside it is very well padded so the hard drive won't bounce around but also acts as a shock absorber.

      I think my only complaint is that there is a small tab on the bottom of the case that pops off if you want to connect it a device. Personally I feel a little anxious about that tab popping open and having water or dirt get inside. So far it's held up pretty well and it hasn't opened on it's own, but who knows how it will react as time goes on.

      Overall, I didn't give it 5 stars because I don't feel the tab is very secure. Great idea though if you're on the go and don't feel like bustin the case open just to hook it up. Great case, built to protect all your important documents. Feel pretty safe carrying this thing around as opposed to the soft cases out there.

      The case is super strong and great to store a drive in especially when shipping to clients. However, the cable for the drive (the short USB 3.0 cable that comes with it) does not fit in the case. And if you try to fit it in the case the case does not seal correctly.

              I purchased this hard case for my company. I used it at the last conference I attended to back up media files. My hard drive felt safe and protected at all times and the little opening for the cable makes it super convenient.

              It was worth every company cent!

                  Comments about WD Nomad Rugged Case (Black):

                  Initially I was a little worried that the outside of this case was plastic, but once I held it in my hands, it felt very solid and composed of high quality material, it really feels quite nice. The inside is completely lined in rubber and leaves the WD Passport inside NO ROOM to wiggle around, which is good!My only critique is that the rubber piece that covers the USB entrance could have perhaps been built a little bit better and easier to open, but it'll still suffice.

                            This case is extremely durable. It completely protects your Western Digital Hard Drive. It's a little bulky...but it's worth it for the protection it provides. You can also store the USB cord in it as well if you carefully wind it up.

                                  The case is great, and I feel certain that it will keep my drive safe and sound with its hard shell. The only problem I have with it is that there is no place to store the drive's cord.

                                            The case is super strong and great to store a drive in especially when shipping to clients. However, the cable for the drive (the short USB 3.0 cable that comes with it) does not fit in the case. And if you try to fit it in the case the case does not seal correctly.

                                                    This case is perfect! Water resistant, rugged and, thanks to the design you never have to take your drive out of the case to use it. Would absolutely recommend to anyone purchasing a My Passport hard drive.

                                                        Easy to install. It does make the drive heavier and bulkier. However, if you want something to be same this is the case to get.

                                                            This case is not out of the box compatible with 2TB drives, but with a little cutting, you can make it fit. Still fits inside of the case, just a little less "protected". Honestly I am not worried about it.

                                                                The case is an accessory that automatically came with the portable hard drive. It is sturdy and protects the hard drive very well since I carry it in my purse. I am very happy with this purchase.

I use this case to protect a 1T My Passport, ready to go with all my key files. The impact adsorbtion design looks much better than other cases.
