Used for O/U shotgun transport. Would be great if you offered a narrower version for shotguns
Between the excellent customer service and the high quality product you get Nanuk is an excellent choice for a gun case.
Initial examination of the case appears to be in excellent condition after shipping. Glad there are wheels on the case, it’s not a light-weight and once loaded with equipment could be awkward to transport without them. The foam is reasonably dense and should meet my requirements, will find out for sure once I cut it to customize the interior layout. Would be nice if Nanuk offered the option of software on the website to design and then custom cut foam to client specifications beyond the few currently offered on the website; I was looking at another vendor who does it but wanted to keep my purchase within Canada instead of ordering the same case from south of the border. Much nicer when foam is machine cut with electric wire or CNC/laser. Like the positive feel of the latches and hermetic seal of the lid plus having positive stops instead of just flopping open. The metal liners in the hasp holes are a nice touch as are the TSA locks built-in to the latches. When ordering foam would be nice to see open-cell (polyurethane) ‘pick-n-pluck’, solid open-cell, and closed-cell (polyethylene) foam options offered on the website. Perhaps even anti-static polyethylene foam or Semi-vel foam topper could be offered.
The case is great. Size and shape are cool. But way too pricey!
I was looking for a high quality travel case for my turkey shotgun and believe I found it in this case. It’s sturdy and well built without being too heavy, has built in TSA locks, and easily customized foam inserts. Only request I might have it to make one slightly smaller. Many airlines have a 62 inch limit (length + width+ height) before charging oversized bag fees. The Nanuk 985 totals just over 63 inches. On a recent flight to Missouri with my turkey shotgun on American Airlines I was not charged an oversized luggage fee ($200! on their website) thankfully but a slightly smaller case would take the worry out of travel and would still easily fit most takedown guns. Love the case !
Foam was tougher to cut than pelican but overall seems like a great case
I was searching for a cost effective low profile container that actually sealed and held together for my ATV.
Found a guy who tested 5 brands and the NANUK actually out performed the over priced, over rated Pelican containers on all levels at a better price!
The latches are great and the overall construction is solid.
If the 985 is a representative of all of NANUK products, then I would most definitely recommend their products.
Very well-built case with all the features you’d need. Wheels, two locks, and high-quality foam. While definitely more expensive than other cases, its potential multi-purpose use, totally make it worth it.
Great product. Just wish for a little more space to put extras in
