Waterproof Hard cases

I have used very long waterproof suitcases for my photographic equipment, and I've always been obliged to buy from foreign suppliers.

I discovered a Canadian company, established in Quebec, named "PlastiCase" who manufactures waterproof suitcases in the suburbs of Montreal, and offering a range of products waterproof and shock-resistant, very high quality.

Its product line meets the needs of divers, underwater photographers, nature or animal, anxious to protect their equipment.
