Aquapac, creator of world-class waterproof cases since 1983, are proud to announce the launch of the Topo Collection. This new range of multi-purpose cases comes in nine different sizes and each case has been designed to carry whatever you practically need wherever you are outdoors.
What’s special about the Topo Collection?
Your gear will be kept safe from the elements and the cases are practical to carry around almost anywhere. Your valuables are easily accessible by virtue of the Aquaclip sealing system, designed to open and close thousands of times. These cases are designed to be 100% waterproof to 10 metres (and the smallest to 50 metres!) for up to 30 minutes. Made from biodegradable TPU material that’s also UV-resistant and can handle temperatures from -20° Celsius to 50° Celsius.
What can I use the case for?
The smallest case, the Ben is ideal for keeping personal essentials such as keys, cash and cards while the largest, Everest, will fit clothes, maps, food, drink and more. All [except the Ben] have internal pockets which are either card or passport sized.
Depending on the size, there are a variety of ways to carry your Aquapac case. You can use the adjustable lanyard which is supplied and wear it around your nec. You can also use the waist belt, the shoulder strap, the detachable carry handle and there are even eyelets that you can use to tie down the case with elasticated cord if you’re on a kayak or RIB.
What does Topo mean?
Why Topo? The name ‘Topo’, short for topographical, has been selected due to the classic black and red stripe contour-style design on the cases keeping your belongings discreetly hidden from the outside. Following this, Aquapac have decided to name each product in the range after a mountain in size order – ‘Ben’, short for Ben Nevis, is the smallest case with ‘Everest’, the largest.
Aquapac Topo cases provide a solution whether you are hiking, skiing, surfing, travelling around the world or moving around in town. Aquapac cases are used by mountain guides, the RNLI, Coast Guards, Search and Rescue Teams and on expeditions worldwide. They are trusted by professionals and designed for the outdoors.
