The most popular lens storage case for photographers and videographers
The NANUK 918 6-Lens Case keeps long lenses safe and well-protected from impact, water, dust, and any other elements that your gear might encounter while storing or during transportation.
The go-to protective model for photographers and videographers for their most valuable lenses
A compact, but nearly indestructible case with a deep base, the NANUK 918 6-Lens Case has become the go-to protective model for photographers and videographers for their most valuable gear.
The high-quality, closed-cell, very low-abrasion, the pre-cut foam has six (6) cavities that can hold lenses either mount-up or mount-down, based on your preference.
Each cavity has finger notches for safe and easy handling of lenses as well as two removable foam discs each to custom fit long or short focal lengths.
The case accommodates most lenses sizes: 8-15mm, 24-70mm, 24-105mm, 17-40mm, 17-55mm and 100mm.
The NANUK 918 protective case comes with a soft grip and ergonomic handle to make it easy to transport.
It also features stainless steel hardware and integrated handle stay to keep the handle out of harm’s way when traveling or during shipping. This transport case is also equipped with an automatic pressure release valve and an integrated bezel system to accommodate custom panels without needing to drill holes so the case stays watertight.

I wanted a case to protect some of my lenses. I have 2 pelican cases, one of which I use for my Magmods but since I got the Nanuk 918 I much prefer these cases. I am in the process of ordering a 930 custom insert case for my Lensball collection using my case builder. I am going to get another one down the road, I'm thinking the 935 but not sure yet. Like the closing hatches better than the Pelican and I personally think they are more secure.
Got my "banana yellow" Nanuk 918 6-lens case primarily for storage. Tired of seeing all of those lenses on various desk and table tops. Fits the bill quite nicely and I find it surprisingly compact.
Some advice for a future buyer:
1- Please note that the insert is made of hard, not soft foam. As such, depending on the diameter of a particular lens it may be a tight fit (although you can always use a knife to widen a given cavity). My observation is that most Nikon or Canon DSLR primes (1.4s and most probably up to 105 or even 135 mm) should fit, although some rather tightly. Standard DSLR zooms (24-70 f2.8 or f4) should also fit (but without the lens hoods). Exotic DSLR primes (such as a Zeiss Milvus) would probably not fit without manually widening the diameter of the cavity. Forget a fitting in a 70-200 mm (f4 or 2.8). Obviously, if your kit is mirrorless then most lenses would fit quite nicely (perhaps even a 70-200).
