PowerClaw Superior Latching System
Close with confidence. Open with ease.
Ensuring that your smaller gear stays well protected from the elements, the Nanuk 918 case's patented PowerClaw latching system uses compressive force and triple action to clamp your case tight. Integrated slide locks offer added security, preventing your case from opening during transport or if it’s dropped. The super tough nylon construction and stainless-steel hardware ensure that your important items stay safe in your NANUK waterproof case no matter where your journey takes you.
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!
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 918 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
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.
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.
Customer ReviewsWrite a review
drilled holes in the case and voided the warranty the day I got it in the mail! Was purchased with the intention of mounting to a snowmobile tunnel for carrying DSLR gear and drones for backcountry sports. Works fantastic and as intended but the foam packs out and my camera that fit super snug in the case before the weekend now needs foam shims hot glue gunned back in so that it fits tightly again.
i use this case for medical device.
I like this case for the form factor. Size wise it was good fit to my device size.
I also like the locking mechanism. It is easy to open / close the latch.
With the pelican cases I own opening and locking is harder.
It is easier on the user when the lock is easy.
Needed a way to store a self-contained sound system (24 microphones plus some other hardware) and decided that having them stand upright in the case was the most efficient way to do it. Most cases of the appropriate length/width were too short to do this, but the newly-released 918 was perfect. The cubed foam came in three layers, which made creating custom-depth holes much easier. The unit turned out to be absolutely perfect and is built to take a pounding; I'm certain I could drop it from 20 feet and everything would be fine. Very pleased with this case.
