Waterproof personal utility cases

Official Peli Ruck case UK sellers, including custom foam inserts

Similar to the Peli Micro case range in terms of sizing but with a distinct appearance and features, Peli Ruck cases are a great option if you need to protect smaller items and equipment.

Peli Ruck cases are among the smallest waterproof cases available. Their rugged exterior and rubber bumpers make them extremely tough and durable. The cases also feature internal organisers and various attachment points. Available in 3 sizes, Peli Ruck personal utility cases are ideal for protecting smaller items and personal gear.

Working well on its own or within an outer case as part of a larger “kit”, Peli Ruck cases are IP68 rated to protect from water and dust. Besides this performance, you can enhance Peli Ruck cases with standard options (such as internal organisers) and custom features like foam inserts. It is effectively a Peli hard case, just in a smaller size.

As official UK Peli case suppliers, your business can source the full Peli Ruck case range – including any custom options required – from GWP Protective.

Why use Peli Ruck cases?

Small utility cases that offer extensive protection

Peli Ruck cases are one of the lesser-known options in the broader range of Peli cases.

With a limited number of sizes similar to the Peli Micro series, Peli Ruck cases are nonetheless unique in both appearance and features.

For starters, the cases feature rubber bumpers on the exterior surfaces. These bumpers help protect the contents if you drop the cases. The bumpers also protect from impact, crushing, and other mishandling. The abrasion-resistant, impact-proof exterior ABS outer shell provides extra durability too.

The cases are also IP 68 rated, meaning they prevent dust entering the case. The rating also means Peli Ruck cases are completely watertight (submergible at up to 2 metres for 30 minutes). In addition, Peli Ruck cases have a built-in pressure relief valve – keeping water and dust out whilst balancing air pressure.

So, whilst the range of sizes and colours is less than similar cases (such as Peli Micro and SKB 3S series), what Peli Ruck cases lack in options, they certainly make up for in performance and features.

Peli Ruck case performance

Protection and performance you would expect from a Peli case

Peli Ruck cases boast much of the same performance benefits as the larger cases (and their closest alternative, Peli Micro cases). Peli Ruck cases are IP68 rated, making them waterproof to a depth of 2 meters for up to 30 minutes. A pressure equalisation valve also protects contents in this scenario.

The ABS and polycarbonate body and TPU bumper material also ensure that the cases are resistant to crushing and damage from impact and vibration. The material composition also provides an operating temperature of between -23 ⁰C to 93 ⁰C.

As per all other Peli Cases, Peli Ruck cases also offer a manufacturer’s lifetime guarantee.

  • IP68 Rated
  • -23 ⁰C to 93 ⁰C operating temperature
  • 0.7 kg buoyancy
