Vanguard’s Supreme Cases are designed to cope with the most rugged conditions a photographer can meet.

The sturdy construction is designed to withstand 120kg of external weight to protect your valuable camera gear inside. With the padded divider bag inside it can withstand most serious knocks and bumps.

In this video Vanguard Pro Joan Vendrell puts the Supreme 37F through it's paces:

The Supreme Cases are also O-ring sealed which ensures they are waterproof up to a depth of 5 meters (or 16 feet), airtight/dustproof and built to withstand temperatures of -40°C to +95°C.

To keep your equipment secure, the Supreme Cases have steel-reinforced lock holders. Secure with a good padlock and no-one will be able to get in without some serious cutting equipment. Just don’t forget your padlock key or combination or you’ll find out just how difficult they are to get into!

For air travel, the Supreme Case comes with an automatic air equalization valve. No need for you to remember to do anything - just place your camera equipment in the case, lock it and relax. The case will ensure that the pressure differences you’ll experience as you travel to your next photography adventure are not a problem.

All Supreme Cases come with a choice of Foam Inserts ("F" models) and removable Divider Bags ("D" models). The key benefit of the "D" models is that they can be adapted over time.  If your gear changes, simply reconfigure the inserts and you're good to go (with "F" models you'll probably have to buy new foam and start from scratch).

Inside the Supreme Case, you’ll find a customizable divider bag that is well padded to keep your camera equipment safe. This is also removable so if you don’t need the case, you can also carry your gear in the divider bag.

For a more detailed overview of the Supreme Collection, here is a demo video created by the UK team:

So whether you’re going on a full-blown photo-adventure or just wanting peace of mind to store your camera gear, you’ll struggle to get better protection than a Vanguard Supreme Case.
