New for 2020: Plano Rustrictor for Hunters

Anti-rust technology first came to fishing tackle boxes; hunting is next.

What began as a way to keep moisture away from your fishing tackle is coming soon to offer the same protection for firearms and archery gear.

Plano’s Rustrictor technology, a partnership with industry leader Armor Protective Packaging, surround your gear with 360 degrees of Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI), who h fights rust and corrosion 5 times longer than the competition.

Plano debuted its new cases for hunting at the Archery Trade Association 2020 Show in Indianapolis.

Here’s a look (via Plano’s website):


The AW2 rifle cases are the first rifle cases in the Plano line to feature Rustrictor. They’re still impenetrable from the outside, with dual-stage lockable latches and a Dri-Loc seal that create a watertight, dust-proof shield. Inside, not only does a pressure release valve equalize pressure through temperature or altitude changes, there’s also the added benefit of Rustrictor to prevent rust and corrosion on your gear. Available in 36-inch, 42-inch and 52-inch wheeled sizes.


  • Rust-preventive Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) infused into resin and foam emitter
  • Blocks rust/corrosion 5x longer than competing products (per accelerated lab testing)
  • Pre-perforated pluck foam for easy customization
  • Pressure release valve equalizes pressure caused by altitude or temperature changes
  • Dual-stage lockable latches
  • Continuous Dri-Loc® seal creates watertight, dust-proof shield
  • Rugged, industrial-strength construction
