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.

Stand out with a unique design and color selection.

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.

Nanuk cases always impress

These cases are great quality. This is my third Nanuk case now, and I love that I am supporting a Canadian company by purchasing Nanuk. In my line of work as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer, most will have some sort of "road case" for their tools. I like to show off Nanuk cases to colleagues and the quality and protection that they provide. I look forward to partnering with them again in the future.

Needed another Nanuk safe. ;-)

Technically my fifth Nanuk after having sold a 985 earlier this year. Built like a vault, I trust my rifles to be transported in these overbuilt boxes. Highly recommend if you love your rifles or whatever you are entrusting to be carried in your Nanuk.

Quality, Fit and Finish

The Quality, fit and finish of my new NANUK 985 are exacly what I expected, since I enjoy using and being seen as a discriminating shooter, with my NANUK 905 Ammo Case to my NANUK 935 6-up Handgun Case, to my NANUK 985 Rifle Case. They are all rugged, strong and ensure life long comfort and security. I would not hesitate to recommend NANUK for all your needs, as I needed this new acqusition. I could even use another one!
