Lightweight at 0.53 lb, the rugged and portable 1TB G-DRIVE ev RaW USB 3.0 Hard Drive with Rugged Bumper from G-Technology is designed for those who require on-the-go access to their personal and/or professional files, photos, videos, music, and more.

It is also compatible with the ev All-Terrain Case.
