Explorer cases are extremely resilient, military-standard, waterproof cases that offer the best level of protection currently manufactured in Europe. Made to withstand extreme environments and with a range of modifications available, the Explorer cases are the right choice for protecting your valuable, and likely expensive, equipment.

Our cases are incredibly rugged, tough, protective equipment cases that have proven themselves to be the best of their kind through military standard testing. They are a great alternative to other protective case brands, such as Peli, and have many additional benefits that prove their worth - not to mention the collaboration with Parotec, utilizing our bespoke case customisation services.

What are Explorer cases?

Explorer cases are durable, waterproof cases that are hard wearing to protect equipment and withstand extreme environments, temperatures and hostile conditions. Made with ultimate practicalities, protection and security in mind, the Explorer cases are the best of their kind in Europe, manufactured in Italy. 

Our available cases include 3 size ranges, small, medium and large. With the option to have an empty case, pre-cubed foam inserts or sections for bag inserts, there will always be an appropriate and safe option for your equipment with Explorer cases.

Explorer Case Features

Explorer cases are used in a variety of environments, from keeping camera equipment safe on a sub-zero expedition to sheltering military equipment from extensive water and dust exposure. There are plenty of professional and extreme scenarios in which Explorer cases are used to effectively protect and shield equipment from damage or harm.

  • Withstand extreme temperatures: Certified to resist temperatures that range from -33°C to +90°C. Whether you’re on an arctic expedition or on a tropical adventure, your equipment will be safe and protected from the elements.
  • Military Standard: Explorer cases are the first of their kind to be certified to the current military standards through patented innovations. 
  • Shock Resistant: Manufactured with polypropylene copolymer, the case's strength against impact and resistance to stress cracking is very high and they can be dropped from a significant height without damage.
