Source custom Nanuk cases with foam inserts for your business

Nanuk cases (pronounced Na nook) are a popular Peli case alternative. Nanuk cases absorb shock, resist being crushed, and are fully waterproof (IP67 rated), thanks to the NK-7 resin used in their manufacture. Available in 29 sizes and up to 10 colours, Nanuk cases are perfect for protecting high-value tools and equipment.

Although there is a wide selection of choices when sourcing waterproof cases, Nanuk cases are still regarded as one of the best options for many applications. So if you or your team are military, industrial, marine or diving professionals, first responders, or are involved in almost any industrial sector, you’ll know that Nanuk cases are ideal for the protection of tools or equipment.

Boasting an incredibly tough outer shell and – crucially – offering a vast range of options and features as standard, Nanuk cases combine the best elements of other protective cases and offer them at very competitive price points. Your business can source Nanuk cases with custom foam inserts from GWP Protective – an official UK distributor.

Why use Nanuk cases?

Durable waterproof equipment cases packed with innovation and features

Despite being amongst the newer waterproof case options, Nanuk cases have quickly carved out an excellent reputation.

Frequently used in the rescue sector, marine transportation, and diving industries (as well as a broad range of industrial applications), Nanuk cases are ideal for any application where protection of tools or equipment is required.

The advanced NK-7 resin used to manufacture the cases is impact-resistant, lightweight, and boasts thick, strong walls. They are also completely water and dust-proof, being IP 67 rated.

Perhaps their most significant advantage over some of their more established rivals is the number of standard features that are optional extras (at additional cost) on most other cases. As a result, this makes them incredibly cost-effective.

Another notable benefit of Nanuk cases is their wide range of colour options, with up to ten different hues available.

Of course, Nanuk cases offer all of the features and performance expected from this type of case. Features include comfortable handles, pressure relief valve, inline wheels on larger cases, integral lid stay and a durable “power claw” latch system. And finally, all Nanuk cases come with a limited life-time warranty, the same as Peli cases.

Nanuk case features

A wide range of features as standard compared with similar cases

Nanuk power claw latch

Power claw latch

The power claw latching system is one of the most secure of any protective case, effectively stopping Nanuk cases from opening accidentally and spilling their contents (even if dropped). It is also easy to operate and helps maintain the fully waterproof seal provided by the cases.

Not a feature as such – but certainly a noteworthy point – is that Nanuk cases feature a distinct design. The style incorporates clean lines, chamfered edges, and smooth corners to create a unique appearance. The external surfaces of the case allow for branding/printing too.

Nanuk panel mount for electronics

Panel mount / bezel

With most waterproof cases, adding electronic equipment requires a separate bezel kit (which, asides from the cost, can also affect water resistance and performance). Nanuk cases provide a top and bottom mounting strip as standard so that electronics can be easily mounted.

Nanuk pressure relief valve

Pressure relief valve

Changes in altitude, temperature and humidity can create a “vacuum lock”, which can effectively seal a case shut. The integrated auto-pressure valve equalises this atmospheric pressure difference using a micro vent that allows air to pass through while preventing water from entering.

Waterproof seal

The design of the case and the interior mouldings helps to create a completely watertight seal. In fact, the cases are IP67 rated.

Nanuk case padlock loops

Padlock loops

The metal reinforced padlock holes allow you to lock the cases for added security (including with TSA locks for international travel)

Nanuk case handle with soft grip

Soft grip handle

The soft grip handle is comfortable, even with a fully loaded case, over long distances. It is also spring-loaded to minimise space when in transit.

Nanuk case wheels


Smooth running polyurethane wheels (similar to those on roller blades) allow for much easier movement of large Nanuk cases. All cases with wheels also include a retractable handle.

With all these cases providing similar performance, choosing one usually comes down to budget, features and available sizes/colours.

Why should I use Nanuk cases?

Their use is popular with (but not limited to) photographers, videographers, drone operators/pilots, sports equipment, police and emergency services, military, medical professionals, and many others. Any delicate, expensive or irreplaceable item benefits from the protection offered by these cases.

What colour Nanuk cases are available?

Nanuk cases are available in one of the broadest colour ranges of any waterproof case. Hues available include black, orange, yellow, silver, graphite, tan, blue and red.

What are Nanuk cases manufactured from?

Nanuk cases are produced using injection moulding and utilise an ultra-tough and lightweight NK7 resin (i.e. nylon) material. As well as being exceptionally tough, it also means Nanuk cases are fully waterproof and resist deformation and fatigue.

What size Nanuk cases are there?

Nanuk cases are available in 29 sizes (with the regular release of new models). The current smallest case (the 903) is 188 x 124 x 79 mm, with the largest (995 model) being 1321 x 368 x 152 mm.
