Sentinel

Injection-Molded Cases for All Environments

Overview

Designed to withstand incredible abuse in any situation, Sentinel cases have seen it all, from frontline combat to backwoods research.

Best Case Value

Injection molded and run at high volumes for stock, you get volume pricing even if you order only one case.

Airtight, Waterproof and Dustproof

Sentinel cases meet demanding high standards for durability. These standards include: MIL-810, IP67, and ATA300. Each case comes standard with an automatic pressure relief valve.

Lightweight and Durable

Using proprietary resin and case design, Sentinel cases provide the best strength to weight ratio. This unique combination gives you optimal performance.

High Quality and Guaranteed for Life

Quality is important to us. That’s why we make our cases in Minnesota. It’s also why we stand behind every one of our cases. Every case we manufacture is guaranteed for life.
