Western Digital (WD) introduces its Nomad rugged case designed to protect the company’s My Passport portable hard drives. Meeting the military standards (MIL-STD-810G) for ruggedness, the durable case is able to protect drives from drops as high as seven feet, moisture and spills and other mishaps associated with active, on-the-go lifestyles, such as those of outdoor photographers, adventurers and other road warriors. Its heavy-duty latch and silicon liner seal out dirt, dust, and moisture.
The Nomad is ideal for hikers, business travelers, outdoor and travel photographers, and others who professionally or personally bring their digital equipment and assets with them. The case is compatible with My Passport drives including My Passport Essential, My Passport Essential SE, My Passport Elite, My Passport for Mac, and My Passport SE for Mac. It is available for $29.95.
