About the NANUK 988
Long, deep, rugged, and tough, NANUK 988 will protect and mobilize loads of gear with room to spare.
It's built to go fast with stainless steel ball-bearing wheels and three spring-loaded handles that make it the perfect premium waterproof protective case to go anywhere.
Waterproof and dustproof, it's built so it can be thrown in the back of a pick-up, stacked on a pallet, taken to the set, or the range with confidence.
Designed with a long and deep interior of 41.75" x 13.63’’x 12.5" (1060mm x 346mm x 318mm), it fits lighting equipment, tripods, camera equipment, telescopes, bunker gear, rifles, chainsaws, industrial equipment, and more.
The 988 is part of our Configurable Series.
The base model equipped with three (3) ultra-strong handles and two (2) strong polyurethane large wheels with stainless steel ball bearings is for any terrain.
If your needs change, the wheel rigs on the 988 are removable and can be replaced by our custom corner caps.
Like all NANUK waterproof protective cases, the 988 is made of NK7 resin and equipped with six (6) of our legendary PowerClaw latches. The 988 is indestructible and will never open accidentally. Molded with aggressive ribs and taller feet, it's highly stackable.
The 988 comes with our lifetime warranty, your assurance that we build cases to protect your most valuable gear for life.
Additionally, a polycarbonate ID Window is available as an option. It attaches quickly and easily to the front of the 988. Other options include TSA Approved Latches as a retrofit kit, TSA Approved Padlocks, Panel Installation Kit, Multi-Layer Solid Foam, and Padded Dividers (Late availability).

The size could not be more perfect my 8 inch Mak-Newt telescope! Very sturdy, the foam has a good density, I feel my telescope is very well protected for transport and storage.
We were looking for a shipping case solution for our portable trade show displays but just couldn't find the right mix of size, weight, and durability. Everything we reviewed missed at least one of our requirements. The Nanuk 988 changed all that. In one lightweight, durable case we've found exactly what we were looking for. The materials are premium and the price is on point. I don't think we could have done better even if we had something made custom. I fully expect the case to outlive whatever materials we ship inside it. Better yet, we can finally deploy our mobile event strategy with a case we know can take the beating of multiple trips cross country. Well done Nanuk!
I bought this case after reading the review by Joshua Badal above/below. For years when I've flown with my light stands and tripods, I can always count on something getting damaged in the golf travel bag I've been using since the long Lightware cases have been out of stock for a long time. All my stands fit except for my Manfrotto combi-boom which isn't a problem for my travel shoots. My last trip had 5 Manfrotto light stands, reflector stand, tripod, softbox, and umbrellas all in the 988. I've taken it on 4 flights now with no damaged equipment. I love Nanuk cases and am really glad to have found this long one for my sticks and grip.
I looked at several competitors and this fit the cost/value that I was looking for. I have a flight coming up so we shall see if it passes the ultimate test.
You need protection for your gear ? You need these cases, period.
