Key Features

  • Clear windows on both sides so they fit both L- and R-handed radios.
  • You can use your radio normally through the case, it doesn’t interfere with sound or radio signals.
  • Also protects from dust, dirt and sand.
  • Like most of our cases it’ll float if you drop it in the drink.
  • The seams are high-frequency welded to form a super-strong bond.
  • The Aquaclip® (a patented, ultra-secure, rustproof, injection-molded plastic seal) opens and closes with a simple twist of two levers, and everything stays in one piece even when open.

Instructions for use and care



  1. Matt Rigby, Palm Beach, Florida

    Use these for our water business. Great stuff! I have a large one for the VHF/sailing. I have been using Aquapacs for years surfing and at work. I am a harbor pilot in Palm Beach, Florida. I don’t trust the other ones.

  2. Mark Beaumont, Atlantic Odyssey Challenge

    The Aquapac kit was superb and used by all of the team throughout the challenge. When we were rescued we only took with us the clothes we were wearing, a satellite phone and a laptop. The rest was lost along with the boat, and it is unlikely to be found.

  3. Mark, Shoreham by Sea, UK

    I have used Aquapac cases for years and never had any problems.
