Mil-Spec 810G Compliant Cases


Sensitive military equipment needs to withstand the harshest environments and remain in perfect working order. This is why the United States Department of Defense maintains strict military specifications (Mil-Spec) for all of its shipping and transport cases. Mil-Spec is also used by many non-defense organizations as well due to the rigid standards that determine a case’s readiness for extreme conditions. 

One of the most commonly used specifications is Mil-Spec 810G, which is used to determine the “environmental worthiness and overall durability of material system design” of military case solutions. Mil-Spec 810G, which consists of 804 total pages, is broken up into three parts:

  • Environmental Engineering Program Guidelines
  • Laboratory Test Methods
  • World Climatic Regions – Guidance

Test Methods of Mil-Spec 810G Compliance
