WD today introduced the WD Nomad rugged case, a durable case designed to protect My Passport portable hard drives from drops as high as seven feet, moisture and spills and other mishaps associated with on-the-go lifestyles.
The WD Nomad rugged case features a polycarbonate exterior and shock-absorbing elastomer cushion inside. It conforms to strict military standards (MIL-STD-810G) for ruggedness. A latch and silicon liner seal out dirt, dust, and moisture.
The WD Nomad rugged case includes an opening for the drive's USB connector, so the user can access the drive while it remains in the case. In addition, a molded exterior ring allows users to attach a carabiner, cable, or nylon strap for more convenient accessibility.
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 now at WD's online store (www.wdstore.com) and select U.S. retailers. MSRP is $29.95 USD.
