Rimowa, which is expensive, offers the Tropicana series which is made from marine plywood covered with aluminum with a fully modular interior which is insulated and fully waterproof to 67 feet without "O" rings.

You will only find them at camera stores and not on auction. Even old ones.

You should look at Lightware's line of cases for View cameras. No they aren't aluminum.

Halliburton's are nice but if you travel, they "scream" photo equipment otherwise they are great. I think has their web site. Cheers, Scott

Try or e-mail them on Please note they may be quite expensive, as according to the marketing blurb "manufacturers of portfolios, binders and equipment cases handmade to your requirements".
