Thriving in an unforgiving landscape, the polar bear has evolved to survive the challenges of the Arctic’s frigid temperatures, cold waters and ice-covered terrain. As one of the most resilient predators on Earth, the great white bear’s strength and fearlessness is the inspiration for our brand name – created to survive in the harshest conditions. NANUK designs and builds its enclosures for unforgiving environments. Where better to do that than in Canada? NANUK believes there is no better environment than the cold, harsh conditions of Canada to manufacture cases that protect valuable equipment.


NANUK’s patented PowerClaw closure system keeps your gear well protected from the elements and clamps the case in place with compressive force. Integrated slide closures provide additional security and prevent the bag from opening during transport or in the event of a fall. The super durable nylon construction ensures that your valuable items stay safe no matter where your travels take you.

Indestructible, lightweight and armed with NK-7 resin bodies, NANUK protective enclosures feature rounded corners, thick walls and oversized details. No matter what nature brings, NANUK is built to survive. NANUK is shock absorbent to prevent damage to the case and, more importantly, its fragile contents.

Whether for aesthetic or practical reasons, color selection is an important feature for all NANUK users – choose from a palette of 10. Color options range from distress orange to olive green, meaning you can blend in or stand out, whatever the task at hand. Please check the respective product pages for color availability.

For ultimate comfort and maximum durability, every NANUK case is equipped with a soft grip handle, regardless of size, dimensions or series. The frame of the handle is made of the same lightweight and indestructible NK-7 plastic as the rest of the case. The handle is covered with an impact-resistant soft grip that makes carrying more comfortable and easier.

Available for WHEELED and LONG series. The reinforced metal padlock holes allow you to secure your equipment so you can carry it with confidence. NANUK padlocks are also available. TSA approved, these hardshell padlocks are the perfect accessory for frequent flyers.

NANUK’s soft grip handles make transporting heavy items comfortable and convenient. And with the 960 and LONG series cases, you’ll find the added benefit of two extra-long spring-loaded handles that retract when released, minimizing the risk of damage during transport.

NANUK is packed with innovative features. All models feature integrated lid latches molded into the hinge that hold the case lid open when you need to keep it open. No more pinched fingers.

The hardware of every NANUK enclosure is made of 304 grade stainless steel, and by using the highest quality materials available, we can build a better enclosure that will still work as well 10 years from now as it did the day you bought it.

Each NANUK case is stackable with other cases of the same size. Integrated feet on the back of the case snap into the front of the case, allowing multiple cases to be stacked on top of each other to save space or safely for transport.

Each NANUK case is equipped with two padlocks molded directly into the case for maximum stability. Optional high quality TSA approved combination padlocks are available to secure your items in the case.

Soft corners and beveled edges blend with strong character lines to create a design that is as sleek and modern as it is robust and reliable.


NANUK enclosures can be submerged in water up to 1 m deep for a period of 30 minutes without leaking or being damaged in any way.

During the drop test, weights of 6.8 to 31.8 kg are dropped onto the housing from a height of at least 48 cm. The drop weight is determined by the size of the housing.

NANUK housings feature 100% protection against dust. Nothing gets in there.

NANUK cases are suitable for at least 100 flights. NANUK can withstand even heavy impacts. If a 6 kg arrow falls on the weakest part of the case from a height of 0.5 m, no damage will occur.

This rating determines NANUK’s ability to withstand repetitive shocks that may occur during transport with loose cargo. NANUK withstands this extreme test of vibration resistance.

Simulated rain lasts 20 minutes per enclosure side at a rate of 10 cm/hr. During a second test, rain falls at a rate of 10 cm/hr while the enclosure is heated 18 degrees F higher than the water temperature. The second test lasts 4 hours. No water enters.

The housing is immersed in a 1 m deep water basin for 1 hour. For this test, the housing is heated to 40 degrees F higher than the water temperature. NANUK withstands even these extreme conditions without any problems

Every NANUK enclosure is manufactured in Canada and tested under the harshest conditions, so if there is a problem with the enclosure, it will either be repaired and returned or a new enclosure shipped to you.
