Smooth & Silent rolling on any surface
Smooth mobility is a major advantage, especially when transporting cumbersome equipment. The NANUK 938 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.
2-Stage Retractable Handle
A Retractable Handle Fitted for Smalls & Talls
Hassle-free transport comes courtesy of NANUK's two-stage retractable handle. Posture-friendly, the handle can be adjusted to two different heights and offers easy, one-handed open and close with its quick-release button. Available on the NANUK 938 case.
PowerClaw Superior Latching System
Close with confidence. Open with ease.
Ensuring that your smaller gear stays well protected from the elements, the NANUK 938 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 938 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.

I needed the case for flying road trips to fix airplanes. The case holds my tools well and I recently added TSA locks to it. Great case so far, but I've only had it a few weeks. Time will tell for the longevity of it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that wants a durable case.
Fantastic product worth every penny
I bought two Nanuk 938 to use as dry boxes for my camp kitchen on a seven day White water rafting trip down the Main Salmon River in the Frank Church - River of no return Wilderness. I contained the kitchen for a group of sixteen people in the two boxes. They worked great. The boxes are tough and kept the kitchen items dry and protected. I am very pleased with Nanuk 938. Thanks John B.
I was always concerned about the integrity of my belongings since in airports many times the suitcases are not moved with due care, in addition to the security offered by the box with its latches, the reason why I recommend this product is for the quality and specifications with which it is manufactured made in Canada. In addition to some very modern colors. Sincerely, Edgardo Diaz P.
I travel to many different medical facilities on a daily basis repairing CT and Nuclear medicine equipment. I use this case to store and transport my tools into and out of these facilities. The case is durable with strong handles that are spring assisted so they always flip down whenever I’m not using them and the latches feel strong and capable. I’m very impressed with the quality of the case and the price!
Purchased for my Blackmagic camera. The 938 was the best size for the job. No complaints so far. In fact it is a simple but great product. Very sturdy and well made.
The ordering and delivery were easy, fast and efficient. Very good customer service.
I wanted to go with this case and brand to support Canadian industry. The convenience of the different sizes is very helpful. Would have purchased a custom insert if there was one for my Blackmagic camera for the 938, however I realize the 938 is a new product. Using the foam to cut out the custom shape was easy, and I can even fit some extra equipment. Would also love to see a lid pouch for the 938 sometime soon.
Overall very happy, highly recommend this product and company.
I have been a Pelican brand owner for many years. I was in the US military, so it was the only brand I knew.
While the Pelican 1510 was a very good case for my original needs, I found that when I got an idea for a table to mount my machine to, that I needed a different case.
My first action was to place a phone call. To my surprise, David himself answered the phone.
He answered all my questions fully and openly. He was pleasant and courteous throughout our conversation. So my first impression of the Company was very positive.
My order processed promptly and shipping within Canada was just a few days.
I ordered my case without foam as I am used to custom cutting my own grey acoustic foam which I buy in sheets from my local foam mattress shop.
I love your wheels. I found the hard wheels of the Pelican to be very noisy on hard sidewalks and airport floors. I also appreciate the engineering that went into making your wheels less prone to picking up carpet threads or trash and becoming jammed.
I found your luggage handle to be a huge improvement over the Pelican. Although they advertise that the Pelican handle is a one-hand operation my experience has not held that to be true. The release button on your handle is truly a one-hand operation. I find the length of the handle to be better for my 6 ft. height and much softer and easier on my hand when pulling the case over a long distance such as across an airport parking or rental car lot. Ditto for the padded grab handles.
I am totally pleased with the latches. With the Pelican, I often would have to push down on the lid to close the latches. I had, on two occasions, the Pelican case come down the baggage shoot with one latch open after catching on something. Your latches cinch the lid down and the two-step closing system is fool proof. And the integrated TSA locks? Wow, no more padlocks to snag and flop around. Well done!
This new Nanuk 938 hard case is my favorite case for my large Sony video cameras. It has a deeper bottom compared to the Nanuk 935 and will fit long lenses and bigger video cameras. As usual, the quality is top-notch and I'm quite proud to have such a good product made in Canada. If you love the Nanuk 935, you'll love the Nanuk 938!
