£44.99


This is the middle size of three wire-through cases. Ideal for radio mics that won’t fit in the smaller 158.

Also fits some insulin pumps.

Key Features

  • Use all buttons and switches through the case
  • Like most of our cases it’ll float if you drop it in the drink
  • Feed out a wire of up to 1/10th inch / 2.5mm diameter from the case
  • The seams are high-frequency welded to form a super-strong bond
  • Waterproofness Warning!: This case features our ‘TC’ Aquaclip which makes the case waterproof to IPX6 (a quick dunking should be fine, but not prolonged immersion).
  • As used by film crews and sound engineers all over the world!
  • The other two sizes are the 158B Radio Microphone Case and 558 Connected Electronics

Can people swim with it?
Our testing shows that the TC clamp will let a tiny amount of water in after a period of total immersion. So the best advice we can give is to wear it in the small of your back if you’re swimming on your front, and on your tummy if you’re swimming on your back, so that it spends as little time submerged as possible. We are talking here about splashing around in the pool or the sea, but we are NOT talking about endurance/long-distance swimming.

Important Note regarding Insulin Pumps and Aquapac cases

Aquapac commissioned research by Imperial College London into the suitability of their cases for use with insulin pumps. Results show that in some circumstances insulin flow rate can be reduced by the case. In particular, low flow rates are impeded and as such Aquapac can make no claim regarding the suitability of these cases with insulin pumps. Use of these cases with insulin pumps is entirely at the discretion of the user.

We are advised to recommend that users of Aquapac cases with insulin pumps regularly check their blood sugar levels. Furthermore we strongly recommend that you get the green light from your consultant before use.

The tests were conducted by Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine using a Roche Accu-Check Spirit insulin pump at a temperature of 20C at flow rates of 2U/hr and 10U/hr. The amounts of insulin delivered over 60 minutes observed were as follows:

2U/hr not in a case – 0.0131g (flow rate of 100%)
2U/hr in Aquapac 150 – 0.0106g (flow rate of 81%)
2U/hr in Aquapac 150 – 0.0056g (2nd test model)(flow rate of 42%)
2U/hr in Aquapac 550 – 0.0121g (flow rate 92%)

10U/hr not in case – 0.0864g (flow rate of 100%)
10U/hr in Aquapac 150 – 0.0878g (flow rate of 100%)
10U/hr in Aquapac 550 – 0.0903g (flow rate of 100%)

Special Instructions for the ‘TC’ Clamp

To Open

instructions diagram
click to expand
  1. Flip the two levers up, one at a time.
  2. Twist the two levers out.

To Close

  1. Place the wire or tube carefully under the retaining arm. The wire/tube must exit through the groove in the clamp.
  2. Place the two halves of the clamp back together so that the wire is held gently in place. Do not squeeze them together hard.
  3. Twist both the levers in, one at a time. Twist both levers before attempting step 6.
  4. Flip the levers over to seal the clamp.

Important Notes

Cases with this clamp are for surface use only, but will offer protection from temporary submersion. They are not recommended for prolonged immersion.

When not using the case leave the TC clamp open. If not the wire or tube could eventually cause a permanent distortion of the foam, risking leakage.

As long as you follow this instruction the clamp will be watertight with or without a wire/tube.

The maximum thickness of wire/tube around which the TC clamp will seal is 1/10th inch (2.5mm).

    Here is a some video clips from our production! The waterproof packs work great! The actors are able to sing all the way up to being under water!

    Wish you guys could come see the show!

    “Highly recommended for pump users who are also enthusiastic swimmers or do water sports.”
