About the NANUK 988


Long, deep, rugged, and tough, NANUK 988 will protect and mobilize loads of gear with room to spare.

It's built to go fast with stainless steel ball-bearing wheels and three spring-loaded handles that make it the perfect premium waterproof protective case to go anywhere.

Stacked NANUK 988 Cases

Waterproof and dustproof, it's built so it can be thrown in the back of a pick-up, stacked on a pallet, taken to the set, or the range with confidence.

Designed with a long and deep interior of 41.75" x 13.63’’x 12.5" (1060mm x 346mm x 318mm), it fits lighting equipment, tripods, camera equipment, telescopes, bunker gear, rifles, chainsaws, industrial equipment, and more. 

NANUK 988 Custom foams for Firearms

The 988 is part of our Configurable Series.

The base model equipped with three (3) ultra-strong handles and two (2) strong polyurethane large wheels with stainless steel ball bearings is for any terrain.

If your needs change, the wheel rigs on the 988 are removable and can be replaced by our custom corner caps.

Like all NANUK waterproof protective cases, the 988 is made of NK7 resin and equipped with six (6) of our legendary PowerClaw latches. The 988 is indestructible and will never open accidentally. Molded with aggressive ribs and taller feet, it's highly stackable.

NANUK 988 Custom Foam

The 988 comes with our lifetime warranty, your assurance that we build cases to protect your most valuable gear for life.

Additionally, a polycarbonate ID Window is available as an option. It attaches quickly and easily to the front of the 988. Other options include TSA Approved Latches as a retrofit kit, TSA Approved Padlocks, Panel Installation Kit, Multi-Layer Solid Foam, and Padded Dividers (Late availability).

High Quality

I ordered the 988 to store multiple rifles for shipping and was quite impressed with its quality. As good as pelican (or better) and much cheaper.

Joshua Badal

I needed a long case for video production equipment - tripods, light stands, etc. Our organization had not invested in protecting equipment for trips prior to my arrival, and our gear was getting destroyed on trips.

I like the rugged construction, and strong locking latches. The spring loaded handles are great and make lugging nearly 100lbs such a breeze.

I recommend this product to anyone in video production that travels regularly. I fly twice a month, and the Nanuk 988 definitely keeps up and can really take a beating. I only ever use Nanuk for my video production equipment.

NANUK 988 Features

NANUKs's Smooth Polyeurethane Wheels

Polyurethane Wheels

Smooth & Silent rolling on any surface

Smooth mobility is a major advantage, especially when transporting cumbersome equipment. The NANUK 988 case features polycarbonate wheels molded with polyurethane. Similar to what you’d find on rollerblades, these wheels, along with their sealed stainless steel bearings, ensure a quiet, effortless trip over a multitude of terrains and through lots of weather conditions.

Nanuk PowerClaw™

TSA PowerClaw Latches

One step up with Lockable PowerClaw Latches

We found a way to make our patented PowerClaw latches even better - they are now lockable! The NANUK 988 case has two TSA PowerClaws and adds another layer of security to your case. All our TSA Latches bear the Travel Sentry® Red Diamond logo, which allows security personnel to open your case for inspection when required during travel. Each lock has a special TSA001 to TSA003 code, which is used by the TSA, CATSA and other security agencies to know which secure tool to use to open the lock.

IP67 Waterproof & Dustproof

Go where no case has gone before.

NANUK protective cases were primarily designed for front line protection, search and rescue missions, first responders, military, industrial, marine and diving uses. The professionals that rely on NANUK cases require a reliable, waterproof solution which resists deformation and fatigue. NANUK ensures a long-lasting, watertight seal - nothing gets in – nothing!

Lightweight NK-7 Resin

Indestructible & Lightweight NK-7 Resin

Get High-Impact Protection with a fraction of the weight.

Impact-resistant, lightweight, and armed with NK-7 resin body, the NANUK 988 protective case is designed with rounded corners, thick, strong walls, and oversized details. No matter what nature throws its way, NANUK is built to survive. This NANUK is shock-absorbent to prevent damage to the case and, more importantly, to the valuable contents.

Design & Colors

Stand out with a unique design and color selection.

Rounded corners and chamfered edges merge with strong character lines to deliver a design that is as sleek and modern as it is tough and reliable. Be it for aesthetic preference or more practical purposes, color choice is an important feature for many NANUK users - choose from up to nine colors depending on the case. Color options range from emergency red to military olive, meaning that you can blend in or stand out, whatever the task entails.

Automatic Pressure Release Valve

Automatic Pressure Release Valve

Keep your case from sealing shut. Automatically.

Changes in altitude, temperature, humidity and geographic location create a “vacuum lock” which can effectively seal a case shut. NANUK's integrated auto-pressure valve equalizes this atmospheric pressure difference. Using state-of-the-art technology, the micro vent allows air to pass through while preventing water from entering.

Spring Loaded & Soft Grip Handle

Spring Loaded & Soft Grip Handle

Comfortable handles that stay out of your way during storage

NANUK's soft-grip handles make heavy transportation comfortable and convenient. On the LONG series cases, you'll find the added benefit of two extra-long spring-loaded handles that retract when released, minimizing the chances of damage during transit.

Metal Padlock Holes

Lid Stay & Reinforced Metal Padlock Holes

Keep the case from closing on your hands plus some added security

NANUK comes loaded with innovative features. All models have integrated lid stays molded into the hinge that keeps the case lid open when you need it to stay open which means no more pinched fingers. Available on the NANUK 988 case are reinforced metal padlock holes let you lock down your gear so you can carry and protect your valuables with confidence. NANUK padlocks are also available. TSA- approved, these custom-designed hard case padlocks are the perfect accessory for frequent flyers.

NANUK Lifetime Warranty

Guaranteed for life

NANUK cases are designed and manufactured in Canada and are tested in some of the harshest conditions, including our own backyards. Every NANUK case comes with a lifetime guaranty so that if there is ever a problem with your case it will either be repaired and returned or replaced.
