Store, transport, and protect your gear from dirt, dust, and moisture with the black Ruggard 22.4L Portable Dry Case with Fabric Insert and Rechargeable Dehumidifier. This case is suitable for storing photo, optical, electronic, and other items that require protection from humidity. Included with the case is a small, silent dehumidifier that can be renewed by simply plugging into a wall outlet and waiting for the color indicator to turn from pink to blue.

Interior humidity levels may be monitored with the built-in hygrometer. For added protection the case features a weatherproof gasket seal and a manual pressure release valve. Users will appreciate the dual latch closure, ergonomic top handle, and padded insert with touch-fastening dividers. Carry the insert inside the dry case or separately with the top handle and included shoulder strap. Hasps on each latch accept select optional padlocks.

Portable Dry Case
The Ruggard Portable Dry Case helps protect your equipment such as lenses, photographic and optical equipment, and mobile electronics from dirt, dust, and moisture. It's a portable, weather-sealed option where you can store your valuables while you're out and about.
Renewable Dehumidifier
The included Renewable Dehumidifier draws away excessive moisture from your gear. It's a small, hand-sized unit which fits in most sealed cases and works without power. This dehumidifier is useful when you need to store gear in conditions such as tropical locales or rain forests.
Status Window
The status window and color guide on the Renewable Dehumidifier show you when it's full of moisture, and when it's ready to use. Pink means it's full and needs to be charged, and blue means it's ready to go.
Silent Operation
The renewable dehumidifier's internal silica gels operate silently and without power. All you have to do is charge the dehumidifier beforehand, and it's ready to work.
Hygrometer
The hygrometer measures the water vapor inside the case and displays a range of relative humidity levels. It takes the guesswork out of knowing when to open the case to avoid prematurely exposing the internal air to the external moisture.
Outlet Charging
Charging the Renewable Dehumidifier is easy. Plug the unit into a wall power outlet with the retractable prongs, and when it's ready to use, you can push the prongs in so they won't get damaged. An LED shows when the dehumidifier is receiving power.
Air Valve Equalization
As the relative humidity level decreases, sometimes the internal pressure of the case can increase and make the case hard to open. An air valve equalizes the inside pressure so you can pop the top open.
Security
Two front latches allow you to clamp the lid to the base of the case. And two locking slots (hasps) offer extra security for an optional combination or key lock.
Comfort Handle
Take your renewable and portable dehumidifier with you to your next locale. Pick it up with the ergonomic rubber top handle, and carry your equipment with comfort in hand.
Padded Insert with Adjustable Dividers
A padded liner with adjustable dividers will keep your equipment scratch-free and organized. The adjustable dividers allow you to customize the inside for a more precise fit to your equipment. This makes it easy to store a camera plus several lenses or other delicate gear. And the liner has a handle, so it's a great portable and protective gear bag. The bag makes it easy to take all your equipment with you, and when you return, just drop everything back in the sealed case.
Shoulder Strap
Sling the Portable Dry Case over your shoulder with the included adjustable strap, and take it to your next locale. The shoulder strap has an adjustable length of 35 to 58".

    Ruggard PDC24-BBS reviews

    Portable Dry Case with Dehumidifier & Fabric Insert (Black, 22.4L) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great case for valuable eletronics! I have been using this case for a few weeks, and I love it! The hard case is rugged and durable, and the padded insert is thick and protective. The case is plenty deep enough to hold a telephoto lens vertically in one opening of the fabric insert, and there are eight openings with the standard divider configuration. The dividers in the fabric insert use velcro to attach to the walls of the insert, so they are easy to move and customize the configuration. The handle on top of the case is rugged and has a nice rubber grip. The seal is weatherproof, but not waterproof, so don't try submerging it under water, but if you get stuck in the rain, everything will stay perfectly dry. I live in Georgia where the humidity is often so high that you could swim wherever you want to go, so the fact that this case has a hygrometer and includes a renewable dehumidifier is a big plus. I have a lot more confidence in the longevity of my camera gear knowing that I can keep them stored in a dry box, especially when on multi-day outdoor shoots. The one thing to keep in mind is that there is a zipper around the top of the fabric insert, and it is easy to accidentally leave the zipper pulls hanging over the edge of the dry box when you attempt to close the lid. I have done this a few times and thankfully it has not caused any damage to the case itself, and I am now in the habit of moving the zipper pulls out of the way before closing the lid, but it is something to watch out for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ON THE GO! This case is awesome. So while it is decently sturdy in build do not expect a pelican hard case type of sturdy. It is sturdy enough and its pretty lightweight so I don't mind at all. If you get this it only makes sense if you get the insert. Its about 10 inches in height inside so It is tall enough for larger lenses standing up or even on its side without being too large of a case. Its about the size of a portable file cabinet you may find somewhere. It comes with a strap that allows you to carry it and the insert also has strap slots to carry that separately. I don't picture needing that strap as the handle is pretty comfortable with a rubber grip. The insert even has a top handle sewn into it. The included renewable Desiccant pack can actually be used in any sealed case. Keep in mind that this case has a rubber seal around the edges so using the Desiccant pack in a random case may not be as useful or effective as having it in a sealed case of some sort. I currently have renewable Desiccant packs but you have to place them in the oven for hours. I am not sure of the exact renew time for this but the fact that you can just plug it in like you would some rechargeable batteries is super convenient. The only two things that I would mention is that the black case (not the lid) has a glossy finish. Its basically a fingerprint magnet. Although it should not matter it is worth pointing out if you care about fingerprints or scratches. They have a clear option but that only comes in a smaller size and has a yellow lid for easy visibility if thats what you need. The last thing to note is the zippered insert rides along the edge of the insert so if you do not tuck over the zipper handles before you close the lid you can easily close the lid on them by mistake. It will not allow you to close and lock the latches like this without extreme force but it happened to me a few times so I wanted to mention it. Overall this case is great and I love the Renewable Desiccant pack. The built in analogue Hydrometer makes this a complete on the go solution for anyone caring for their gear in humid environments.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dry and portable This economical case with fabric insert is a great way to store gear out of the humidity and is handing for transporting it as well. The plug-in heater that restores the crystals works well. This case isn't thick enough to bang around, but for storage and careful transport, it's very good.
