[NA·NOOK] WHAT'S IN A NAME?

Thriving in an unforgiving landscape, the Polar Bear has evolved to survive the challenges of ​the​ freezing temperatures, frigid waters​,​ and ​ice-covered ​terrain of the arctic. As one of earth's most resilient predators, the great white bear is the inspiration behind our ​brand​ name ​due to its strength and fearlessness—made​ to survive in the harshest ​of​ conditions.

PowerClaw latching system

Ensuring your gear stays well protected from the elements, NANUK's patented PowerClaw latching system uses compressive force to clamp your case tight. Integrated slide locks offer added security, preventing your case from opening during transport or in the event that it is dropped. The super tough nylon construction ensures that your precious items stay safe no matter where your journey takes you.

Waterproof - IP67 rated

NANUK protective cases are sought after for search and rescue missions, marine transportation, and diving.This is due to its reliable waterproofing, which resists deformation and fatigue. NANUK ensures a long lasting, watertight seal - nothing gets in.

Impact resistant - NK-7 resin

Impact resistant, lightweight, and armed with NK-7 resin bodies, NANUK protective cases are designed with rounded corners, thick walls​,​ and oversized details. No matter what nature throws its way, NANUK is built to survive. NANUK is ​shock-absorbent to prevent damage to the case​ and, more importantly, ​to​ its delicate contents.

Two stage retractable handle

Hassle-free transport comes courtesy of NANUK's two-stage retractable handle, available with NANUK 935, 950 and 960. Posture-friendly, the handle can be adjusted to two different heights and offers easy - one-handed operation with its quick release button.

Securing an outside faceplate with screws or rivets can weaken your case and compromise water resistance. NANUK solves this dilemma with its integrated bezel system. Found on the lower portion of all NANUK cases (and also the upper portion of several NANUK models), this solid inner lip is designed specifically for mounting and makes panel installation easy.

Polyurethane wheels

Smooth mobility is a major advantage, especially when transporting cumbersome equipment. All NANUK WHEELED and LONG cases come equipped with polycarbonate wheels moulded with polyurethane. Similar to what you find on rollerblades, these wheels, along with their stainless steel bearings, ensure a quiet, effortless trip over a multitude of terrains and through a number of weather conditions

Why Nanuk Handle Stay

Handle stay

NANUK is tough and durable, but it does have a soft side. The handle structure is molded with our specially formulated high impact NK-7 resin but is over molded with a soft touch rubber for comfort. The soft shock absorbing material reduces fatigue when carrying heavy loads.

Lid stay

NANUK comes loaded with innovative features. All models have integrated lid stays molded into the hinge that keep the case lid open when you need it to stay open. No more pinched fingers.
