Product Profile: Equipment Cases

Hams can be hard to keep home. From fox hunts to portable operations to DXpeditions, they’re always off on another adventure—and it can take a toll on the delicate instruments that accompany them. This holiday season get them the right equipment to tackle it all with storage cases that are pretty darn close to indestructible.

• Tough enough to take to the harshest conditions, Gator Cases are made from ultra-durable rotationally-molded polyethylene (Pro Series) or lightweight molded polyethylene (Standard Series). They’re ideal for securely storing radios, power supplies, and equipment for your emergency Go-Kit and are available in wheeled or non-wheeled options.

• If you’re looking for a fool-proof case, look no further than Nanuk Equipment Cases. These heavy-duty cases are waterproof, crushproof, dustproof, and manufactured to stringent military specifications. They’re also lightweight, watertight, and come in a variety of sizes, configurations, and colors that keep your equipment looking good and packed securely during transit.

• The Pro2 Equipment Rack System by iPortable is worth bragging about. Available in 4UM and 6UM models, these adjustable racks feature built-in speakers and more on a lightweight frame. The interlocking connectors make them easy to stack and expand as needed, and heavy-duty aluminum construction is durable enough to take on the outdoors.

Racks feature the DC power distribution point, LED strip lighting with dimmer and on/off switch, and a front panel accessory switch for fans or interior lighting. With the 6UM model you’ll also get three front SO239 coaxial antenna ports and dual 3.5 inch front-firing speakers with a 1/4 inch headphone jack.
