Nanuk 990 Video
While I am a shooter, I did not buy this case to transport firearms. The last couple of times travelling by air to fishing destinations, I have been forced to check my fly rods resulting in worry. The Nanuck 990 will hold as many three piece fly rods as I care to take as well as other gear, clothes and personal items. Worry free.:-)
Plan to purchase another one soon.
No complaints, all as it should be.
I am Extremely pleased with the Nanuk case! Strong, excellent locking clips and moves great on the wheels for a little shooter like me! (5 ft nothing 😉) Everything is safe and sound with the full foam, I couldn't imagine anything any better! Worth Every Penny!
My husband was looking for a portable case for his rifle, and as he already had a Nanuk 915 for his pistol, he was impressed with how solid the case was compared to other manufacturers'. He recommends the Nanuk Series cases for any application, including weapons and communications gear. The 990 is airtight, contains TSA locks, and can be dragged behind you on wheels, or carried with the spring-loaded carrying handle.
Very well built. Would recommend
These Cases are awesome as usual and best of all they are made in Canada. I will always support Canada first! I have now purchased these cases a DJI drone, Surveying GPS RTK system, and three other research equipment that are transported to the field. The cases are used at a research institution.
This is my second rifle case. Nothing like having a good quality rifle case at a reasonable price. I only have a few rifles but I like the confidence I gain in knowing my rifles are well protected from the elements both while travelling and in the field. I used to dream about owning a Pelican case but I am now happier that I gave Nanuk a try.
