The Explorer 5117 Case is a crush-proof medium-sized case with reinforced corners and an ergonomic rubber handle. This highly resistant waterproof case is ideal for carrying and protecting all sorts of medium sized equipment. Constructed of an ultra-durable and tough copolymer polypropylene, this waterproof case is compact, lightweight and ideally suited to protect cameras and other fragile equipment while on the move. Available in three colours - black, military green and orange - it can be ordered empty or with a foam interior from Cases UK.

The Explorer 5117 Case is constructed with a neoprene O-ring seal to ensure of a very reliable, watertight fit between the two case halves, whilst a manual pressure equalisation valve prevents vacuum lock. The Explorer 5117 Case can be used along with an optional shoulder strap to provide comfort whilst carrying (sold separately). The corrosion resistant hinges ensure of a time-proof opening that can withstand a wide range of volatile situations and environments; once opened to 70 degrees, the lid can slide off after releasing a screw. Counterbalance supports at the rear of the base ensure that the case doesn't topple over. Incredibly hard-wearing, solid latches ensure of a secure locking system that is capable of withstanding heavy blows without breaking open. Internal slots for optional panel mounting brackets or panel mounting rings are also present, enabling you to fully customise and make the most out of your Explorer Case.

Explorer Cases are known for manufacturing strong, rugged products that are highly resistant to impact, water, dust, sand, corrosion and humidity, whilst also capable of withstanding extreme temperatures between the range of -33°C and 90°C. The Explorer 5117 is designed and manufactured in Europe and is an excellent solution for protecting up to medium sized, potentially delicate and fragile kit.
