Safe-and-Sound-Pelican-RUCK_CASE_PROPS_R20-614

An age-old problem for small-boat sailors has been taking care of their wallets, keys and other valuables while, say, tooling around the harbor, a problem that has only become all the more pressing in this age of cell phones and other digital products. Now, though, one need look no further than the RUCK Personal Utility Case from Pelican Products to keep these and other items safe and sound, Each case employs the same waterproofing and shock-proofing technologies found in the cases Pelican builds to protect everything from electronics to medical kits for the military. Available in three sizes measuring from 6.7in to 8.3in long, each RUCK case is also IP68 rated to protect it from dirt and snow and remain waterproof for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 6ft. Along these same lines, a rubberized “exo-skeleton” provides additional shock protection while a robust dual pivot latch makes sure the case remains closed no matter what. From $44.95.
