The Supreme 40F will keep your Nikon dry down to five metres (16.5ft) un­der­wa­ter – al­though, with so much foam in­side, you have to won­der how the case could sink so deep. It can also with­stand tem­per­a­tures of -40 to +95°C (-40 to +203°F) and weight of up to 120kg (265lbs).

Its 43 x 29.5 x 17.5cm (16.9 x 11.6 x 6.7in) in­te­rior pro­vides enough space for a full-frame D-SLR and three or four lenses, and it weighs a mod­est 4.4kg (9.7lbs). Hexag­o­nally diced foam is in­cluded, al­though Van­guard also sells an op­tional di­vider bag for added ver­sa­til­ity. De­spite the keen price tag, it boasts some nice ex­tras, too, such as a comfy han­dle and non-slip rub­ber feet. Ro­bust­ness, mean­while, is ex­cel­lent – the Supreme feels ev­ery bit as tough as the Calumet and Peli cases.
