For many travel photographers and videographers, the superior protection afforded by the Nanuk hard case makes it a most essential accessory. Regardless of the amount of gear you are carrying, Nanuk’s hard cases can protect from impacts, water, dust, and more. Although the Canadian tourism board may shiver at the thought that our “neighbor to the north” is our neighbor to the always-frozen north, Nanuk’s cases are designed and built near (if not in) some of the world’s most rugged and unforgiving environments.
Compared to other hard cases, Nanuk stands apart with their much more rounded corner design. This gives these cases a sleeker and more finished look than those of the competition. The cases are made out of indestructible and lightweight NK-7 resin, and are designed to be stackable, as well.
Their patented PowerClaw latch system combines compressive force to ensure tight closure, slide locks to prevent accidental opening, and ultra-tough nylon construction. The resin handle features a soft grip for comfort—even when carrying heavy gear.
Nanuk’s cases are waterproof and dustproof—rated to IP67— and feature a lifetime warranty.
Many of those proven Nanuk features are available in the Nanuk 918 6-Lens Case with Foam Insert that features a precut lens insert designed to protect a multitude of different focal length lenses from 8-15mm zooms to 100mm primes.
The insert’s cutouts feature removable foam disks to further customize the fit of your optics, as well as finger notches to help insert and remove the lenses.
Outside, the case features a purge valve, reinforced holes for padlocks, and the PowerClaw latch system.
