Product Description

The larger of our two Aquapac Classic VHF cases. Suits satellite phones and radios with longer antennas.

The most trusted waterproof VHF cases on the market, since 1983.

Key Features:

  • Clear windows on both sides so they fit both L- and R-handed radios.
  • You can use your radio normally through the case, it doesn’t interfere with sound or radio signals.
  • Also protects from dust, dirt and sand.
  • Like most Aquapac cases it’ll float if you drop it in the drink.
  • The seams are high-frequency welded to form a super-strong bond.
  • The Aquaclip® (a patented, ultra-secure, rustproof, injection-moulded plastic seal) opens and closes with a simple twist of two levers, and everything stays in one piece even when open.
What size do I need?

We offer two sizes:
The Small VHF Classic Case will fit most modern handheld VHF radios. Our Large Classic case on this page is good for satellite phones and VHFs with long antennas. 

 

Tip: to get the circumference, add the width to the depth and then multiply this by 2

Warning
Aquapac's warranty covers this Aquapac only, and not any items you may put inside it. We recommend that you insure the contents separately.

Waterproofness
Our range has been independently tested to international waterproofing standards. However, the waterproofness of your Aquapac depends on your closing and opening it carefully, and on it not being damaged either before or during use. Please follow all instructions carefully.

Before Every Use
Seal something worthless inside, then submerge in a basin to check the waterproofness.

Closing the Case
Make sure that all parts are properly attached. Wipe away any grit or sand, which could hamper the seal. Always turn the levers as far as they will go. They should lock smoothly, if not there may be something impeding the seal.

Opening the Case
Never open your Aquapac in or under water. In order to stop any water getting in when you are opening it, first shake off any water then dry with a towel. Hold the case with the opening at the bottom as you open it.

Ongoing Care
Our materials are strong but can still be punctured. Avoid sharp or abrasive objects and protect from impacts. After regular contact with chlorinated or salt water, or with sun creams, wash in soapy water and then rinse with fresh water. Do not use bleach, alcohol or proprietary cleaners.

Materials
Aquapacs are made from a variety of materials, mostly plastics which make them rustproof. These include TPU, ABS, nylon and polypropylene.

Extreme Temperatures
Although the case material has been UV-stabilized – which means that the plastic shouldn’t be discoloured or broken down by sunlight – the Aquapac won’t protect anything inside it from heat or sunlight. The soft case material is functional and flexible in air temperatures -40ºC to +60ºC (-40ºF to +140ºF), and water temperatures up to +40ºC (+100ºF).

Humidity and Condensation
In humid climates there will be moisture in the air sealed inside the case. Desiccant sachets will absorb the moisture, keeping the contents completely dry. We recommend use of desiccant sachets in all Aquapacs in humid climates. You can purchase spare sachets – see Accessories.

Warning
This is not a toy. It may contain small parts which may be a choking hazard to children under 3. Keep small parts away from children.
